    We've been going to Yoma for a year now and the food is consistently delicious. The owners are friendly and live in Allston.

    "New Trend Eatery" was horrible the 2 times that I went. The so called "rice porridge" was basically "rice in water" and the cashew chicken tasted like it came from the frozen foods section (which it probably did).

    Grain and Salt is FANTASTIC! It's now our favorite Indian restaurant in Boston and we feel blessed that it's in our neighborhood. Please, folks, have a meal there and support this local wonder -- you'll never taste fresher spices and or more delicate sauces.

    It's not exactly "new" but my wife and I went to Deep Ellum on Saturday night and it was fantastic. Great food and a solid beer and drink selection and excellent service.
