We were sat at the bar as it was a busy Friday evening and we had no reservation. It was still perfect for 2 people. Host sat us straight away, bar staff were super efficient and friendly despite how busy they were. I had the...tofu curry a bit pricey for $18 with no rice but worth it for the flavours. Also had leftovers to bring home. Great experience overall.More

Honestly don’t know where to start. Restaurant got good reviews and we were eager to get a table. We were sat at our table ordered drinks and Food - 1 bottle of beer and a glass of Coke. Beer arrived with one portion of rice...which sat for at least 15 minutes before someone told us this was a mistake and took it away. Next came “the starter” wonton soup, which consisted of 2 basins of tasty broth and soggy dumplings with a disgusting sausage roll centre. Also at this time our prawn and cashew nuts came which was cold and had to ask to be reheated. We had also ordered a beef dish which never arrived and had to put out an apb for the coke all while watching the sever fill the glasses with water several times at the table next to us. When asking for the coke for the fourth time also the beef dish, server said we had no recollection of us ordering it. Asked for the bill and the coke miraculously turned up. You too can have this experience for $80.More

The worst experience I’ve ever had in a restaurant, don’t even bother to make a reservation here, I had a reservation at 8:30 pm for two people and they did not have any table available for us, I saw a table available after 30 minutes...of waiting standing in front of the host and manager, I asked them for the table but they decided to sit 3 people instead with no reservation, I left this place with my wife after 40 minutes of waiting, this is a bad Chinese spot with no respect for the peopleMore

It’s been so long since I’ve return to this place when it was first born in Quincy. Met with some friends here with reservations and it seems pretty packed at dinner time. Waiter was very welcoming and attentive to us. They have many selections of...superior broths versus other Shabu places around. They still remain as one of the best Shabu in Boston. High quality meats , fresh veggies and good appetizers. Drinks are also good here. They also have sushi if you decide to have both Shabu and sushi. It was a satisfying night with friends.More

We were here for work and had a craving for Chinese food. Found Q through TripAdvisor and we were not disappointed! We chose the menu with already made Chinese food, but our table mates had the broth bowl in which they cooked their food and...it looked amazing as well. Loved the Sesame chicken. Would eat here again in a heartbeat!More

We went on the spur of the moment - we only had a couple of days in Boston, saw the reviews of this place, and decided to give it a try on spec. They had no free tables, but were able to seat us at...the bar. In a word - wow. The service was incredibly swift, and the food was absolutely amazing. We're already planning a second trip. Highly recommended.More

We had a chance to have dinner at Q Restaurant during our recent visit to Boston. What a fun experience! The restaurant offers a variety of Asian food, including Chinese dishes and sushi. But the real star of the restaurant are the large number of...hot pot options available tableside. You pick broth, veg, and proteins. We had the Mongolian Cumin Beef and the steak/lamb hotpot. The Mongolian beef was fantastic - the hot pot was tasty and challenging. The staff was very helpful in placing the order and showing cooking techniques. Located on Washington St near the edge of China Town. Well worth the trip. Not sure it's the best place to bring the kids.More

First it’s not actually 660 it’s next door to the 660 building the restaurant has orange awnings. There were two other couples there when we dined. We ordered fried dumplings made of chicken, Turkey and pork. They were ok the dipping sauce was tasteless and...cold . It could have used some ginger and scallions. We also had beef lo mein it was good and orange chicken again ok. I suggest dishes without coatings. Enjoy! Aside - The orange line T will be closed starting Friday 8-19-22 for a month also part of the blue line. You may experience more traffic.More

The food and the service are fantastic! I come here in the winter for hot pot and in the summer for creative sushi. You can't miss. The drinks are delish! Very creative and potent mixology at work. If your in the mood for Asian food...and want a wide variety to choose from, but don't want to settle, this is the spot. They do all things equally well. I have yet to be disappointed even slightly. I come here with finicky friends or solo. Date spot, after work drinks, business lunch, I really mean it, the place is that versatile and they do not miss a beat.More

The Q is a restaurant we try to frequent when in the mood for sushi or hotpot. Their menu has a wide variety of asian appetizers as well as sushi entrees and an entire hot pot menu. We enjoy the variety as well as the...quality knowing you will pay Boston prices of course. We have been here before and will certainly return with regularly good servers and bartenders it’s a reliable restaurant with delicious food.More

We booked a reservation for four after visiting our son for his internship for college. The Q i noticed was a good choice on Tripadvisor‘s. It did not disappoint us at all, Johnny was a great server, helped us with our Mongolian hot pots that...we ordered. We ordered the Supreme seafood and also the Supreme beef both of which were outstanding! I will go back here again!More

We stopped in right after a show and we were able to grab a bite at the bar. The service was quick and good. For starters we had the fried calamari which was served with a red sauce which we enjoyed. For our entrees I...had the beef and asparagus and my girlfriend had the lamb fried rice. Both entrees were excellent. The portion size was generous and the meals were very flavorful. We ordered the chocolate pyramid for dessert, I was not a fan. The dessert kind of fell flat.More
