The Most Beautiful Restaurant in Massachusetts

A spot in Cambridge called Wusong Road gets the crown this year

“Maximalism reigns at this tiki restaurant, with thatched overhands, 1970s-era peacock chairs and tropical wallpaper,” People said.

In “The Land of Rangoons and Rum,” Wusong Road is an immersive experience. The first floor is like walking into a robust jungle and you’ll take breaks from your meal just to take in the awe-inspiring décor.

“Thank you to People and Open Table. ... We never would’ve thought our weird little space filled with dragons, parrots, and monkeys would win any beauty contest (especially in a world where minimalism and clean lines are the trend),” the restaurant said on Instagram.

Wusong Road is open Monday through Sunday and reservations can be made online.

How do you feel about the winners? It may be time to make reservations and find out what they're all about firsthand.
