“Best Restaurant in Cambridge, by Far”
Review of Night Market

Night Market
Ranked #197 of 669 Restaurants in Cambridge
Restaurant details
Reviewed 9 August 2017

The food here is delicious, vegetable driven, consistently well-prepared, and precise in flavor. There is a focus on flavors often associated with Taiwan, Vietnam, Japan, and Thailand. Nothing is muddied: There is clarity on the plate. Prices are extremely reasonable such that a couple can eat here for between $30-60, including tax, drinks, and tip. Plates are small and meant to be shared. The presentation of the food is thoughtful: Plates are not busy, and nothing is there that's unnecessary or meant to show a chef being clever. The room is very much like what you find in neighborhoods of Tokyo, Tokyo, and the Lower East Side or East Village of NYC. Staff are cool, respectful, well-informed, and rather hip. It would be nice if Night Market could serve cocktails, but until they do, go to PARK, across the street, for those, and eat at Night Market. I go to this restaurant about a dozen times a year.

This restaurant was recommended by a friend and well-reviewed, but I just don't get it. it was incredibly noisy, which would have been fine if the food and service had been good, but they weren't. We ordered six things and not one of them was worth ordering again. The one good thing about it was that it was very reasonably priced, but since we didn't like the food, that didn't help much.

I've eaten here three times now and it's the kind of place that gets better with each visit, as you get to explore more of the menu. The service is impeccable and waitstaff know the dishes inside-out. Food comes out as it's ready and it's shared dining, so you get to experience a bit of everything. The skewers aren't the best value for money, so if you're watching your wallet, go for the incredible Lick 'n' Sticks as an appetiser - the crispy and flavorsome gremolata is as good as you'll have anywhere. It's hard to go wrong when you're selecting dishes to be quite honest. And you'll be pleasantly surprised by the bill at the end of the night. I will keep returning to this absolute gem of a restaurant.

This resto was like being in what I imagine a Malay/Thai place in SE Asia. The staff was polite and kind and very informative. None of that snotty 'oh you don't know?' rudeness. They were helpful and very sweet. We enjoyed a number of their dishes and were thrilled with their sauces and dips.
