Chowish Spots Near Cambridgeside Galleria

Hi folks,

Looking for a chowish spot for dinner near the Cambridgeside Galleria (particularly along Cambridge St.), along with any recommendations re: dishes. For example, how is MuLan, and are there any particularly good dishes?

Thanks in advance!

  1. Dante is right across the street in the Royal Sonesta hotel. I've always enjoyed my meals there (been there twice for lunch and once for dinner). It's on the pricey side, though, with entrees running in the mid to high 20s.

      1. re: nasilemak

        Second the vote for Helmand. Excellent Afghan food.

          Third vote for the Helmand - one of my favorite restaurants in the Cambridge/Boston/Brookline area. Be advised - you should make a reservation.

          1. Mulan is excellent. I know there are several posts on it already. Mulan is on Broadway, not Cambridge Street though.

            Also, I remember reading that Wisteria House opened another location in E. Cambridge. I've only been to the one in the Super 88 and the now defunct Newbury Street location. I think there are posts on WH on the board.

            1. pretty decent thai resto across from the mall- Simelians (SP)
