Quite good

The restaurant is not beautiful but clean and comfortable. The menu is wide and the waitress very helpful to go through it. Good food and also the desserts are fine

Went there at 4pm. They shooed us away saying "we are closed until 4:30." We made a special trip out eat there. No where is it on their website is it written that they are closed. They staff wasn't even polite about it.

Here with a large group on a day when it was 90 degrees and humid in Boston. My main complaint was that the Air Conditioning did not cool to a comfortable level and took away from enjoying the meal.The appetizers were good but average for local Indian restaurants. Garlic Naan was very good but Chicken Vindaloo did not have the... More

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.

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
