The food at Shanti is exquisite and you can get it as lightly spiced or hot as you want just tell your waiter.

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.

I ordered several times by delivery. Their food it is so tasty and delicious. You can tell they use fresh ingredients and spices. They served good portions enough for 2 persons. Give a try!!!

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.

i'm on a quest to find the best Indian buffet in Boston area. Surprisingly have still not found one up to the standards of several restaurants in suburban Detroit. This is the 4th I've tried. It is located in the Savin Hill area of Dorchester...not too far from UMassBoston. We were only people in the place at about 2pm on... More

We love Shanti! We've been visiting Shanti for dinner somewhat regularly for the past couple years. The food is amazing - always cooked to perfection. The murg korma is my favorite dish! The naan and poori are always served steaming, and all the appetizers are terrific. We have visited here on our own and with groups of friends (our vegetarian... More

We have been going to Shanti in Dorchester since it opened many years ago. While we have always enjoyed it, it just seems to get better and better. We love the dim lights and quiet atmosphere that makes it great for get-togethers with friends and family birthdays. No competing with loud music or shouting bar-goers. The restaurant is small, but... More

We have been visiting Shanti since it first opened, and we don't even want to try another Indian restaurant in Boston. Why should we? The food is always fresh and incredibly delicious, the staff is friendly, most attentive and courteous, and the price is very reasonable. Even the bathrooms are awesome! You won't be disappointed with Shanti.

Thank you so much Anne for all your support for the last 11years! We truly have such wonderful neighbors here in Dorchester. We would not have made it this far without all the great neighborhood support. Thanks again. More
