Moby Dick was a favorite destination ever since University days. This diner serves authentic Persian cuisine and is run by a welcoming family. Here you can find grilled marinated chicken skewers , Beef kebabs and vegetarian dishes. A classic diner that keeps us coming back. Lunch and Dinner.

I spent 15 days traveling around NYC and Boston and this was the most comfort food experience from the entire trip. We ordered 03 dishes with rice as main ingredient and all of them was so delicious that I can't wait to go back to Boston again to eat in this place! Also, the owner is super friendly! :-)

I am a repeat costumer to this amazing restaurant and in between visits dream about the food. It's very unassuming if you walk by it, and honestly it's not much to look at, but the food and the service go above and beyond all expectations. The menu is big, they have a large selection on the board behind the counter... More

Went for lunch with wife before Boston Symphony concert (just a few yards down Huntington Ave from Symphony Hall). Real Mom and Pop atmosphere with home cooked feel to menu. Had lamb stew over rice which was delicious. Wife had chicken curry which was also a hit. Note: no credit cards.

They have never paid for advertisements at this wonderful place and never will have to--the food is great and the people are just like family. Get the sour cherry chicken--available on weekends--the prices are incredibly reasonable. It's the sort of place where after you eat your entree you order carry out so you can have more of their food at... More

No frills, just great taste. When I don't have time or energy to cook, but we want a quick home cooking meal we eat here. It became our comfort food. Very reasonably priced for the location.

MUST! Moby Dick is the BEST Lebanese restaurant Ive ever tried! The chicken Biryani is amazing! Ask for Moti, takes really good care of you, she is an amazing person! I used to eat here at least one a week, while in college; truly amazing food!

I think I must have walked by this place a hundred times without trying it out. From the outside looking in, the place looks like a total dive - simple tables, not much decor or atmosphere. Once you go in and speak to the owners, you will realize that they care about their food and their customers. The food is... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Fenway / Kenmore
The Curse of the Bambino may have ended years ago, but loyal Red Sox fans will continue to infiltrate this home to historic Fenway Park, where you can find victory banners, people yelling in stereotypical Boston accents, and lots of sports bars. Located within Kenmore Square, the old gas station Citgo sign is another Boston skyline classic seen throughout the city. In addition to a hectic and diehard sports mentality, this neighborhood is also home to some of Boston’s many universities. Move from Boston University territory to that of Northeastern, and spend time at the famous Museum of Fine Arts. For more culture, check out the smaller but equally beautiful Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. Continue off the beaten path and check out the green space in the Back Bay Fens, a pretty community garden. This diverse neighborhood has a mix of universities, sports, culture, and more residential green space.
