Reviews for Purple Shell

Purple Shell is one of those restaurants that genuinely surprised me with its unique and interesting food and incredible service.✨Sushi Omakase: 5 ⭐️ and the highlight of dinner.✨Bone Marrow: the blend of flavors in this dish is simply spectacular.✨Surf and Turf Maki: this roll just MELTED in your mouth with a delightful freshness while maintaining a rich fattiness.✨Salmon wonton: the salmon is fresh and a good start as an appetizer.

I was looking for a special place to spend my birthday and decided on Purple Shell. I don’t really enjoy driving into Boston anymore as it can be really overwhelming but I figured it was a special occasion and so I forged ahead. We made a reservation for 7:30 and when I arrived there was a crowd of people around the hostess desk. Complete chaos!! People yelling that they had reservations and why weren’t they seated, fighting back and forth with each other and with the host....read full review

Worse restaurant ever.... We made a reservation and the host give our sit to some white lady. The manager did not try to explain the reason or anything, Asian people were waiting for a while with an explanation. The white host told me" you keep complaining, we are trying our best... I heard her after " stupid Mexican". This is a racist restaurant.
