The food is fresh and good. If you like your meat medium rare please tell that to the chefs so they can put it in after the veggies

Quick service, great food, fair prices and a separate check out area (so the cashier isn't preparing your food like at Five Guys) and a nicely lit, clean dining room adds up to a winning dining experience. There is a lot of shopping on Needham Street and Fresh City is in the middle of it, fronting the Marshall's plaza.

This establishment is a great spot for fresh food and speedy service. My choice today was a watermelon salad; it had fresh mint, feta cheese, cucumbers and selected salad greens, mint and chives. Wonderful dressing. I was amazed at the burst of complimenting flavors & it was prepared before my eyes. I love this place & will go back again.

I chose brown rice with all the vegetables and peanut sauce over shrimps. Wonderful. I could choose the buffet with fresh salad. One thing that annoy me these are the plastic cutlery. That is the reason i gave only 4 dots. Wi fi is free. Place is big and nicely cooled.price is fair.

Cute place in a strip mall in Newton. There are wonderful soups, wraps, stir frys and burritos. There is a great salad bar where you can order three different sizes depending on your hunger level. The selection of items at the salad bar is extensive and very healthy. There are proteins as well as salad and vegetables. There is a... More

This is a casual eatery, great for breakfast, lunch or dinner. There is a large, well-stocked salad bar with three different sizes of plates. There are several standard dressings from which to select. There is also a large selection of wraps, both hot or cold. Bowls of. Hot stir fry containing noodles or rice are also a good choice. In...

I imagine their ingredients are fresh but it doesn't mean it tastes good. There sandwiches and wraps make Subway seen great. The stir fry's are pricey and they are stingy w/ the meat. The soup is just ok.

I loved the variety and taste of their wraps. It is not a wait staff restaurant. You go to the front and give your order but it really is good. It gets VERY FULL at dinnertime.

Used to love this Fresh City location, my teammates and I even had a tradition of coming here every week for a pre-race team dinner. Always got the stir fries, which were consistently good, though less good when I went with my team/there was a lot of volume and demand coming all at once. Over time, however, standards on everything... More
