  1. It would be helpful to know what type of food you like. Szechuan Gourmet is right there on Rt. 9 and is awesome if you like good Chinese. If you are looking for something more upscale, Sel del la Terre in the "Natick Collection" does a very nice job.

    1. Aegean on rte 30 (greek) - Joan & Ed's Deli in the Sherwood Plaza on rte 9 -british beer company on rte.9

        I heartily second the recommendation for Aegean. It's such a great place for lunch and dinner. Excellent atmosphere / architecture. Good prices. Great food. Love the avgelemono soup, the free fresh baked bread and feta/olive oil appetizer, gyros, kebabs, etc... They are just missing a Mediterrean sea location!


        Oga, Sichuan Gourmet, Legal Seafoods and Sel de la Terre are also good. Paparazzi is also on Rt. 9. EO noodle is a very good Taiwanese restaurant. More upscale is Tomasso Trattoria in Southborough (rt 9).

      2. There's John Harvard's in Shopper's World. And a Legal Seafood across the street.

        1. sichuan gourmet (sichuan)
          uncle cheung's (shanghainese)
          red pepper (sichuan)

              Another vote for Oga for excellent Japanese food and the atmosphere is casual and comfy, but it feels upscale.

              Aegean gets crazy loud - the acoustics in there are awful.
