We have gone back to Family Restaurant repeatedly since discovering it last Spring. We have also introduced it to all our friends. The food is wonderful, varied, and very homey. From the outside, the place looks a bit like a converted diner, but that's easily forgotten by the first bite. We love everything we have tried: the hummus is some of the best in Boston, the tomato soup, the chicken and mixed grill kebabs, the eggplant dishes, and most importantly, the dessert! Every time we try a different housemade dessert and we have yet to be disappointed. This is definitely one of our favorite restaurants and quite affordable, too.
Pros: Food, Dessert, Comfortable seating
Cons: not much!
