My husband always forgets he likes Indian food, so we had a bit of a hurdle with eating here before a show at the Wang. Let me just sat, that this place is amazing! The service is excellent, the atmosphere lovely and low key, and the food amazing! Whatever you do, take the advice of other travelers and try the... More

Enter behind the somewhat garish outside entryway and you will find a beautiful restaurant with original Indian artwork and tapestries and filled with tables of satisfied Indian customers...not to be seen from street's view. The cuisine...best Indian in Boston by far. A real delight!

This was my third visit in last few months and this time I decided to write as it would be unfair that if they are good all three times, I got to spread the good word. Food- amazingly good except pakoras which were a little too dry. But I must say the service was A-1 each time. Even when the... More

Service was dire. They served one appetizer 20 mins before the rest, they never brought the rice we ordered. Manager did not seem to care. Did get a free beer each and 20% of the bill.

This restaurant was highly recommended, so I decided to take a ten minute walk in the rain. I had high expectations. The place was a complete disaster. They were understaffed, the owner seemed completely in the twilight zone. I got a table after 30 minutes. I had to go get the menu myself. Got tired of waiting and went to... More

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
