Had made a reservation and had been looking forward for several weeks to dinner at Tantric-- we were not disappointed! The food was very good--esp enjoyed Chicken Korma, and the Lakhnawi Naan was the best naan we've ever had. 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.

We love to go to Tantric either before or after a show - it's right in the theater district. The food is so delicious and the prices are good. There are lots of great things to choose from, including a decent wine and cocktail menu.

There are very few restaurants in downtown Boston where you can get Vegan dishes. Tantric offers the usual fare with a bit more than many Indian restaurants. The bread was flavorful, the samosas were fresh and the entrees well prepared. Good selection of drinks and there is adequate space between tables. Service was very good as well. It is a... More

Great service, reasonable prices, good selection of foods from various regions of India. I loved the saag paneer and raita. Ras malai was also very good.
