A wide choice of Indian cuisine. The menu is instructive. Unless you are very spice tolerant do not go beyond medium. The dishes were well presented and portions were of appropriate size. We shared lamb and tiny eggplant dishes which were delightful.

The server asked each of us how spicy we wished our food to be, and our different requested spice levels were... More

Looking for authentic Indian food . . . Tantric is the place then . . . I preferred buffet which is available from Mon-Fri during lunch, as I could get more variety for less price. I would rate Roasted Chicken as the best dish :-)

I made a res on our way down to Boston for a show... it was a week night, so we got an early table no problem. However when we arrived 30 minutes later the hostess informed us upon arrival that they no longer had their liquor license. I was sad. They made a Mango Martini that was SO VERY EXCELLENT... More

The food was good out quickly and hot. Unfortunately they no longer have a liquor license. They were upfront calling me after I made a reservation on Open Table so I appreciated knowing this.
