Get into the Holiday Spirit at Sumiao

Reserve a Table

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


Our beverage team has created four new cocktails which will be on the spotlight this month:

  • Lychee Bellini – lychee liqueur, lychee puree, sparking, lychee garnish ($10)
  • Pama Mimosa – pomegranate liqueur, cranberry juice, champagne, fresh cranberries and rosemary ($10)
  • Spiked Apple Cider – Myers dark rum and a dried apple slice ($8)
  • White Christmas – bursting with the quintessential winter flavors of eggnog, white chocolate liqueur, Southern Comfort and cocoa powder ($8)


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

  • Snow Pea Shrimp – pepper, scallion, garlic and seasoned soy sauce ($22)
  • Merry Tomato Eggs – stir-fried eggs with tomatoes ($15)
  • Happy Yin Yang – mountain yam, black fungus, carrots, green and red peppers ($22)
  • From 12/21-12/31, a decadent and healthful Christmas Roasted Chicken will be a must-try, made with organic, cage-free whole chicken and served with red and green accompaniments: beets, cherry tomatoes and broccoli ($58)


Holiday entertaining takes new levels at our house where we customize every wish on your list. 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.


Every Thursday and Friday, join us for live music by Berklee School of Music alums taking center stage at Sumiao to bring revelers one of the most unique live music experiences in Cambridge. We’re excited to have many returning artists this month, and we’ll also be welcoming a new jazz/pop vocal band, So Distinct Music, for a special Christmas Eve performance; guests are encouraged to request their favorite holiday tunes for them to play!

Complimentary admission; Thursdays & Fridays from 7:00pm-10:00pm.

Wishing you and yours a most joyous and festive season!
