Very good lunch buffet

Excellent lunch buffet. Lots of different choices. All of it was replenished quickly by the kitchen staff. We went as a large group and they accommodated us nicely, moving tables together and making sure we were all set. I would definitely return. The food was excellent.

I tried a large number of Indian restaurants so far in all over United States. To me, this place is above average (3.5 out of 5), not excellent as far as food taste is concern. May be I had better expectations and seen other good Indian restaurant where I found better taste, anyways. The environment was good, quiet and service... More

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.

I found about this place from a lady serving me in the Puma outlet store in Assembly Row and after realising it was near where we were staying we decided to go and check it out and how happy we were that we did. This is hands down the best Indian food I've ever had hands down and if I... More

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.
