Would not have expected to like this place -- but we did! Need to get past the entry way which smells Cumin-y and funky. There's a fish tank at the door with nearly frozen but live little fish swimming around. Our table wasn't ready, and...More

We ordered several barbecue items - mushrooms, cabbage,lamb and chicken skewers - the flavors of the spices were exquisite, the prices for each of these not-so-small plates were incredibly inexpensive. Can't wait to try the other barbecue items. Service was excellent.

Wu Er is only open for lunch certain days of the week. We decided to try their eggplant tapas, Asian ribs, Zha Jiang Mian​ noodles and many skewers with hummus for dipping. The eggplant was prepared with hoisin sauce. The ribs had a nice sauce...More

We were staying in Brookline (outskirts of Boston) and came across this Chinese barbecue restaurant. We were there on a Saturday evening and the place seemed to be popular with young people, many of whom appeared to be of Chinese origin. To me that is...More

Upon walking in you seem to step out of Brookline and into a Chinese palace with the store's very traditional designs. The dark stone and bright red trims are very inviting and definitely reminded me of a couple places I visited while in China. The...More

We decided to try this restaurant as there was a Groupon. Called and made a reservation for 8:30 on a Saturday night. It was not very busy when we arrived. Starving, we began ordering and couldn't stop! Our waiter, Otis tried to persuade us to...More

We often explore Asian food with friends. Learned about this opening in Brookline and tried it last week. Good service, good food and authentic atmosphere. A bit noisy (lots of hard, non-porous surfaces) but noise is de rigueur today! We had crab cakes, pork barbecue,...More

The interior design reminds me of a place in Guangzhou, modern and traditional in one place. Wait staff is friendly, but timing is off how to serve customers. It was not a busy night, so cannot imagine if this place do get busy. Probably new...More
