No wine with your dinner

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.

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.

Seafood madras was wonderful, and allowed for us to choose heat. Also went for the chicken Tikka Masada and of course naan. Great service, and food arrived quickly even with almost a full... More

Had high expectations of this recommended Indian eatery given the dearth of good Indian restaurants back in Pittsburgh but overall was pretty disappointed. The mixed platter appetizer was fairly nondescript and lacked any real flavor. Our entrees were on the other hand pretty decent, a good chicken jalfrezi and an excellent lamb dish. Biggest disappointment however was reserved for the... More
