Been there on a Tripadvisor suggestion and OMG we didńt regret it a second. The food is awsome, the place is charming, the service is good and prices are really decent. If you enjoy real Indian food and you're in Jamaica Plain, go eat there. You won't regret it!

A friend took me to this restaurant for lunch. A lovely place and they served excellent food. The portions were good and the food wasn't too spicy. There is also ample parking at the back.

My and my family favorite place to go out. Chicken Tikamasala, creamy and spicy is my favorite. Just watch out at buffet lunch time not to over eat, otherwise it is great time to try different things.

We went to Bukhara after visiting Arnold Arboretum. It is conveniently close to the Arboretum. I was surprised to see beef curry there, because I had never seen beef in any Indian restaurant's menu. The staff were nice and accommodating. I tried the veggie samosa, chicken tikka masala, saag paneer, and eggplant dish. The others tried a potato stew and... More

Located in Centre Street in the heart of Jamaica Plains, or "JP" in Boston, Bukhara offers a casual ambience with an outstanding and quite delectable buffet and very curteous servers, at a reasonable price. You can top your visit to JP with ice cream from JP licks, a block away. Cheers!

Three of us went for a Saturday lunch buffet. We were very happy both with the selection and the quality. Not too spicy and very tasty. We've been to many Indian buffets and this was definitely one of the better ones. Included was a choice of tea or juice, appetizers, hot and cold mains, several veggie dishes and some sweet... More

My first visit there and I loved it. It's a great value for "all you can eat". They have many vegetarian options and great bread. The staff are friendly and the place is very convenient for me who works in that area. Parking is not so easy to be found, but with a little patient anyone can find it.

We ate here last Friday night and were generally disappointed with the experience, and especially the food. The lamb dishes were mostly sauce with a small amount of meat. Most of the meat was very tough. The sauce had an odd vinegary aftertaste. I wouldn't go back. Parking is in a municipal lot in the rear. Prices were reasonable, but... More

The service was good, but food and dishes quality is lacking. The okra dish was very dry, there was practically no sauce. The "beef kofta" tasted and looked exactly like any pork "italian or swedish" meatballs from either Ikea or Costco. I can guarantee there was no beef in there. I would not recommend this restaurant considering other Indian options... More

Delicious, wide variety of choices, and attentive service all make this a great spot for a quick or leisurely lunch.
