About this Business
From Our Editors
Probably because its menu is so diverse and extensive, Feng Shui Restaurant isn't shy about suggesting what guests should order. The five-page menu, which includes a melding of Chinese and Japanese cuisine, has the phrase "Must Try!" printed next to several dishes, including deep-fried crispy prawns seasoned with the chef's signature spice blend. Should patrons choose to stray from these favorites, however, it's unlikely they'll be dissatisfied: Feng Shui was once selected as the city's best restaurant by Boston Magazine, and in 2010 was named one of the country's Top 100 Asian restaurants by Chinese Restaurant News.
Feng Shui could feasibly claim three specialties: Chinese entrees, hibachi, and sushi. The house crispy duck is a popular Chinese dish, a boneless cut that's rolled in pastry batter before being deep-fried and paired with fresh veggies. At the hibachi tables, chefs use a rice-bran cooking oil, which is free of trans fats, to sear each guest's choice of protein and veggies. On the sushi menu, chefs might eschew the typical rice or seaweed packaging found around most rolls, as in the Gold Fish roll, which instead wraps its tempura-avocado-eel contents with thin cuts of shrimp and salmon. With such a wide range of options, it's understandable that patrons would want to try a bit of everything. Luckily, there's a buffet lunch Monday–Saturday and for Sunday dinner, which includes a spread of more than 30 entrees, soups, sushi rolls, and desserts.
