Ma Soba is a larger restaurant on Cambridge Street, decorated in an Asian motif without overdoing it so that you feel like you are at Epcot Center. The menu has a large variety of traditional Asian noodle dishes and sushi rolls. Having had their sushi before and, sadly, not loving it, we decided to mix things up a bit this time. For an appetizer we shared a Dim Sum basket that had a selection of steamed dumplings. The shrimp dumplings were good, however, the dough was a bit sticky and was difficult to take out of the bowl. The consistency of the pork dumpling was not very good - not much taste and almost a bit dry.
Next, we shared some sushi rolls. The first was the Hawaiian roll, which was a tuna, avocado, and California Roll.
Being eel lovers, we also ordered an eel tempura roll.
Wanting to try something new on this trip we also ordered some of the noodle dishes. The first was the shrimp pad thai.

I ordered the curry beef chow fun, which had stir-fried fresh broad rice noodles with South Asian flavors.

Once again, nothing wrong overall with our meal, but I was not overly impressed with it either. Unfortunately, I always walk away feeling like I spent a good chunk of change without being entirely satisfied.
