We stopped here for a quick lunch. We were going to order off the menu until we saw they had a lunch buffet. There was a selection of about 10 different dishes plus condiments/sauces. Everyone left satisfied, and thought it was worth the price. There is only street parking.

Shanti constantly has the best tasting and prepared dishes. I especially like their seasonal dishes. We have nearly a dz. Indian restaurants in the town that I live in, but we like to travel at least once a month to Shanti which is about 15 miles into the city. Highly recommended.

Visited Shanthi Boston for dinner with a friend. The veg pakoras were really yumm and the rotis very soft and hot. North India food is very good and the chutneys are great Take-away and delivery food is also good!

I travel to India for work and love the food. When in Boston, I am lucky enough to live nearby this restaurant. The roti and all the veg dishes are authentic. I do ask for extra spicy. Highly recommended.

Mostly ordered out here, and tried many items. While Shanti is a cut above many local Indian restaurants in some respects it doesn't really stand out. There are pluses and minuses, but overall good and certainly one of the better choices, but not a standout.

The food was really nice but I suspect I found a hair in mine which put me off a bit. However I would recommend, i was pleasantly surprised at the flavours, and I'm Indian.
