Diner Reviews
  • "We had the most amazing dinner for our date night. The staff was professional, accommodating, friendly, and fast. The mood was set, with French background music, and the owner was available to speak with us. We could not have asked for better food, wine, service, or evening."

  • "Typhoon is a great place to get a drink - their specialty drink menu is extensive, and there's an open front with outdoor seating that makes for a nice setting. In addition to the drinks, the house specialty sushi list is also quite long. It was nice to try something new."

  • "It was a little too quiet for peak dinner time on a Saturday night. Sushi was okay but the food was bland and questionable. Service was alright but I will not be coming back. "

  • "We went here because I had wanted to try them...I knew they had participated in restaurant week, and I thought they had decent sushi. I was wrong. The wait for food was like 90 minutes. The sushi quality and quantity was abysmal...I don't think it's really a true sushi place...more like Chinese. We got a supposed-4 person sushi boat, bit it really wasn't enough for 4 people...we went tho Wendy's afterwards because we were still hungry...That's bad sign."

  • "I was here once before and could not wait to go back. This time there were 3 of us. Throughout the meal, we were each so rapturous about our dishes that we kept offering each other tastes. We shared the vegetarian dumplings which were fantastic. The Korean beef with bim bop was incredibly tender and flavorful, and not overwhelmingly spicey hot. The salmon with curry was mild, but truly delicious. The sea bass was delicate and perfect. One of us had the will power to skip dessert, but two of us ordered fried banana with ice cream, with choices of several incredible ice cream flavors. I chose coconut. Wow... I am still reminiscing about that dessert. Our waiter was attentive, sincere, and eager to please. We can't wait to return. Yum..."

  • "What a pleasant surprise. Food was awesome, with plenty of gluten free options for my daughter who has no choice regarding diet. Will definitely be back to eat there again next time I visit for the Boston Marathon. Boston Strong! My wife and daughters were in the bistro last year when the bombings went off while I was running, and they never were able to eat there food. We went back this year to patronize! Will be back. "

  • "I'm gluten intolerant and there was a large gluten free menu with lots of choices. The restaurant had one group in it...some couples on dates and a few parents with their kids. All that, and it was still a nice quiet place to have a conversation. The food is delicious and the portions are sizable. It was a great time and I'd definitely return."

  • "Presentation of the dishes was very elegant. Very interesting cocktails ;-) Food itself was good, if not particularly innovative. Service was extraordinarily attentive."

  • "I have been in a couple times. For the price, I keep expecting to get blown away. That hasn't happened yet, except for the green tea fried ice cream. For the price of the food, I expect it to be better. The staff, however, are great. They can stay the same :)"

  • "We went to the Typhoon Bistro prior to the symphony. We came in early but the place filled up quickly around us. Menu is not your typical Asian fusion...excellent to have something new to explore. Food was tasty, hot (when it was supposed to be) and in appropriate portions for a human. We will visit again!"

  • "There was 4 of us and every one of our meals were great. The presentation was beautiful. And then the desert ...Wow was that good one was a fried banana with ice cream and the other was a fresh fruit and ice cream that the server made a fun presentation with and lite the liquor with a lighter and poured over the fruit. So good! The waiter was a kind and knowledgeable .."

  • "A nice location eating in this area is pleaseant. The food was great I ordered the Korean BBQ steak which was very tender the portion was a bit light though. M date ordered the crispy duck which also was very good an nice presented. The ambiance was romantic without being to over the top and our waiter was friendly. Unfortunately I didn't get his name we reserved seating for about 845pm on valentines day. I had only wished I go to thank him for such great service. Overall a good experience and definitely a place I would come visit again."

  • "We went as a party of four, before a concert at First Church. The restaurant selection process was made difficult because we needed vegan options that were more satisfying than side dishes served over pasta.. After receiving the regular menu, we asked for the vegan menu, and although I was the only vegan in the party, we all ordered of of it because it was so great. The food was beautifully presented and had bright, fresh flavors. The service was just right, and the atmosphere made normal conversational voices possible. We will definitely return, and recommend!"

  • "Had a very nice lunch. Had our 1 yr old grandchild with us. They were very accommodating. The baked salmon roll was delicious. I had the ginger bass, that was well spiced and juicy. My guest had the salmon/tuna sushi luncheon version. Good amount of fish. Hot and soup soup flavorful, but not very spicy. Miso soup excellent. Outstanding attentive service."

  • "We were staying in the Copley Plaza area and were craving Thai or Asian food. We assumed that since this restaurant was downtown in a big city, high rent district, it would be at least decent. The drinks were awful (not sure the bartender was trained, at all) and the food mediocre. Service was just miserable. While it had a great front patio on the street, that was the one and only thing going for it."

  • "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."

  • "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!"

  • "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."

  • "The table we were seated at initially slants toward the patio, so glasses, menus, etc either slide off or fall over! We declined to sit there because of that, but when the water glasses were filled for the next people who did, they immediately fell off the table and broke! Of course they were then immediately moved to a horizontal table - how is it possible that they continue trying to use this table? Also, the spoons we were given to use for the flambeed fruit dessert - which was quite good - looked like they came from a middle school cafeteria going out of business sale. They must have trouble with people stealing the cutlery!"

  • "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"

  • "I've been here a few times, and this time, the food was definitely not as good as before. Service was very attentive and enthusiastic (Chadwin was excellent). However, the food left a lot to be desired. The soft-shell crab and calamari were oversalted and hard to eat and the presentation was hard to bear - it did not look appealing as it was served. We also got two drinks that were polar opposites - the sake-tini was all gin and the mojito was all juice. We got the Black Pearl entree to share. Great presentation but the fish was not so fresh (usually, it is). The butterfish is normally to die for but this time was meh. Tuna and white fish were also second-rate. Torched fish were excellent though. Mixed bag this time around."
