Where to eat in Waltham tonight
Okay -- where is good in Waltham? Don't want to spend too much money but also don't want chain Mexican.
Not sure exactly where your budget lies, but here's a few options
Ponzu does a nice Asian fusion. Good value too
Elephant walk and Erewan of Siam are also good.
Alot of folks like Solea for tapas, but I think the atmosphere far exceeds the food quality.
Ponzu Fine Dining
286 Moody St, Waltham, MA 02453
663 Main Street, Waltham, MA 02451
Erawan of Siam

re: Science Chick
The Upper Cust had a delicious pizza. If you go to Tuscan grill and order no alcohol and get no dessert it will be less expensive and you will have a nice meal. It's funny because every time I go there the bill is always the same. I know that if my husband didn't have his three beers and his chocolate cake it would be cheaper. I like it there because it's a creative menu , has a bistro feel but is Italian. They are the type of restaurant where you will find a good tomato salad on their menu because it's August and it will have some good cheese with it .
Upper Crust is on Moody street. It was a bit hard to find and I had to drive up and down Moody twice. It's on the same side as lizzy's ice cream. It's a metal sign and there is an Indian Market next door. There is a tree with branches that kind of hides the sign a bit or maybe I can't see.
Taqueria Mexico is quite cheap, and serves some of the best Mexican food that I have had since I moved to Boston. Their Tostada with ground beef and potatoes is a favorite. I just ate there for lunch during break, and am stuffed after spending just under $5.
Besides that, there are several good Indian restaurants around. While Kabab & Tandoor is delicious, they do not serve beer and it has more of a take-out atmosphere. For other Indian restaurants, check out some older posts on this board.
