‘Tis the Season at Sumiao

Reserve a TableOrder Delivery

It’s the most wonderful time of the year, and we can’t wait to continue celebrating our first holiday season with each of you. All month, we’ll be dishing out delicious specials (to be enjoyed at our house, or yours!), shaking up festive cocktails, hosting your special events in the heart of Kendall Square, and more.


There’s nothing quite like toasting the holidays with your loved ones. All month, we’re giving you three more reasons to do just that:

  • Mrs. Claus – a short and stout (like Mrs. Kringle herself!) mix of Bailey’s Irish Cream, Camper and dry Bombay gin, garnished with a candy cane ($8)
  • The Red Nose – an elegant flute of vodka, Villa Maria and blood orange, garnish with a candy cane ($10)
  • The Hot Toddy – by popular demand, our November cocktail special will be available for another 31 days bringing you a handwarmer-meets-heartwarmer of lemon-honey black tea, whiskey, housemade lavender-clove reduction, Disaronno and a lemon twist ($7)



‘Tis the season of appreciation. Since it’s part of Hunanese culture to show our love through food, we are adding a little more indulgence to your December by cooking up some holiday-themed specials:

  • Mushroom & Broccoli – our special edition of a classic mushroom and broccoli dish, stacked and enhanced with bright cherry tomatoes and carrots to resemble a mini Christmas tree ($15)
  • Furious Frog – a twist on our signature Angry Frog creation that takes on Grinch-like traits by bringing even more Hunanese heat and spice to the mix of bullfrog, duo jiao, pickled and red peppers, garlic and scallions (MP)
  • Holiday Tilapia – a variation of our new steamed duo jiao tilapia, a daily catch adorned with pickled and red peppers, garlic and scallions (MP)



Holiday entertaining takes new levels at our house where we customize every wish on your list. Named among Zagat’s guide to “Boston’s Best For Group Dining,” we can accommodate parties of 24-252 people with curated experiences for a gathering of family and friends, large-scale company holiday parties, corporate luncheons with full A/V capabilities, and more. Contact for more information.

And because a way to someone’s heart is through their stomach, give the gift of Sumiao this season. We offer gift cards for all occasions that give the recipient a night in Hunan via Cambridge at their leisure.



Bonus: We now offer expansive takeout and delivery menus that are perfect for holiday hosting on the fly (or for those who want to leave the cooking to us!). Check out our new menus here:
