This was a busy little spot across the road from our hotel. Our waitress was attentive and polite. We had the vegetarian samosas which were mostly potato but delicious. chicken tikka masala which tasted as you would expect, lovely and creamy and spiced to order. We also had chicken Madras which was spicy and rich. Tons of chicken for both... More

The food and the staff are both wonderful. We had the incredible lunch buffet towards the end of their seating. Everything was still fresh and hot and the two things that they had run out of were promptly replaced in kind. Everything truly was very good. We look forward to going back!

Usual Indian food, nothing worth writing home about! Very young and chirpy, but professional waiting & serving staff. They definitely pay attention to instructions, which is good and appreciated.

Since moving to the US from London, my husband and I have missed the delights of a really good curry, having been spoiled by the excellent Cafe Spice Namaste in Prescott Street. So we determined to seize the opportunity of an overnight stop in Boston and were delighted with both the food and the ambience of Tantric Indian Bistro. We... More

We love Indian cuisine and usually try new restaurants wherever we travel. We have dined in Hyderabad and New Deli. This place has them all beat!

I went into this restaurant because I needed really spicy food and I thought I could get there. And I did. The service was excellent and very personal. I realised they did have to serve a crowd while I was there but the wait was not unreasonable. The food was nice and I believe I got value for money. I... More

I ate here because it was across the street from the hotel and I really love good Indian food. fortunatelyit was close because otherwise it was not worth the walk. Usually Indian food is very fresh and elegantly spiced--this just seemed like they opened a can and were going through the motions. The food wasn't bad, it just wasn't good--although... More

I work nearby and this is a great spot for a quick and filling lunch. The price is reasonable and you can be in and out in 30 minutes. The nan is excellent as are the accompanying sauces. The tikka masala is good as well. There are also vegetarian options always available.

The location is good and the ambience matches the location, but it ends there. Food quality is below average and it tastes lame. Our server didn't know if one of the popular indian dish (not on the menu) was offered, which is ok, but he didn't even make an effort to check with the chef. Starters and appetizers were good....
