Went on a Monday night, so
Went on a Monday night, so it was very quiet. The food was good, as was the service. They put us in the window, so we got a nice view of Boylston. More expensive then I would usually spend (~$25 a plate), but then again, I'm a college student.

Great Asian Variety!
Went with my daughter since we were on vacation there. Would love to go with my husband and indulge in cocktails. Nice ambience with a ton of different (colorfully attractive) liquors! Great variety of Asian foods - not just Japanese/sushi. Meal was very enjoyable. Food and service were both great. My only issue was that it seems to be on the small side, so tables feel cramped together. However, this was across from bar... perhaps in the main rooms it is better? Where we were sitting, there was a draft from the front door so it was cold, and we were surrounded by tables with loud talkers so it was difficult for us to hear each other (and not eavesdrop). If I'd gone with my husband, I'd insist on a different table.

Pretty Asian Fusion
Typhoon Bistro is a very nice pan Asian restaurant. It is pretty with white tablecloths and a small outside area with tables. The best things we had were the sauteed scallops and the flambe dessert. A Japanese style seafood soup was not too flavorful but the ingredients were very fresh. The chopped chicken in lettuce leaves appetizer was so so and the eel unagi was also good but not the best we've had. Overall, though, the service was excellent and we had a good time. The prices also seem a bit high but it is in the heart of the Back Bay so that's what's normal around there. Overall, I would go back.

Friday night dinner with friends
A good convenient and interesting restaurant to meet friends on a Friday night. Above-average variety of wines by the glass (including great plum wine); tasty coconut soup and huge shrimp tempura were fantastic appetizers. 'La Mer" entree was somewhat of a disappointment: the bright red lobster tail in the middle of the plate was empty, only for decoration. I eventually found one, maybe two, small pieces of lobster meat. The scallops and shrimp were large & fresh. Accompanying grated lettuce salad was without character and should be replaced with some interesting veggie. Flamed fresh fruit with ice cream was delicious - a favorite now. Rock music out of sync with the main dining area was fortunately replaced by more appropriate sounds.

Service was much improved
Service was much improved from last visit. The waiter was knowledgeable and very attentive to service. Filled the water glasses promptly. Food was very good, nice combination of flavors.

My friend and I went here on Saturday night aroudn 5. I made a reservtatino but I don't think I really needed too. But better safe than sorry. I got tofu fresh rolls to start and he got veggie dumplings. both were delicious. I also got the Typhoon Spicey. I got it with Tofu instead of Chicken. I didn't realize they had a vegan menu until I looked at the site afterwards. The menu they give you doesn't have that option, you probably have to ask. My friend got Sushi. Both were amazing!! Would definitely come again.

Great place to stop while touring
This place is great to stop at while touring Boston. Good food, and good view outdoors of the buildings if seated outside. Service was great too :)

Fun Back Bay sushi spot
Typhoon is a solid place for sushi (and I imagine for their non-sushi dishes as well, which I did not try). Servers are friendly and responsive, but not overbearing. While it has more than enough Back Bay cache, it is not pretentious. This is a great place to go to with friends or maybe a good place for a low-key date. My date and I had the calamari appetizer, dragon roll, spider roll, and the spicy rainbow roll- all were great!

Nice asian fusion.
The food at Typhoon is creative and high-quality. We were happy with everything we ordered. The ginger ice cream is really gingery, which is nice. The spicy lamb is perfectly seasoned.

Exceeded our expectations
We sat outside on a lovely day. Everything we ordered was delicious, especially the tuna tataki appetizer. The waitress was friendly and helpful. The price range is wide so it could get expensive but there are plenty of reasonably priced choices.. I'm sure we'll go back

Great variety on the menu
The menu was quite varied with an eclectic variety of Asian cuisine. The service was excellent, and it wasn't noisy. There is an option to sit outside next to the sidewalk as well.

Amazing Menu and such a great spot.
First time here, and I will be going back as much as possible. The food was great and the menu had so much to choose from. Prices were great and location was perfect for outdoor dining!
If you are a sushi person, you def need to try this place at least once!

Decent Place would return again
We had the sushi here and it was good, the service was average. The outdoor seating was nice since the weather was near perfect. The seats outside were a little tight. Overall it was a good dining experience.
