I never miss a meal at Tantric whenever I visit Boston and have found the food consistently good with an authentic Indian taste. The lunch buffet is value for money while the a la carte menu for dinner has a good selection. They can vary the spice levels as required. The mango lassi is not to be missed. The restaurant...

Booked a table here as was one of the highest rated (of not many) indian restaurants in Boston. Booked on phone, when we arrived were told that weekend is buffet only, disappointed as wasn't told over the phone. However, the buffet was great and had just been freshly cooked, no complaints. Was quite pricey with a few desserts thrown in.

It was the Saturday after Thanksgiving and we just wanted something light and healthy. Many Indian places rely on wonderful, fried food that is also heavy and calorific. At Tantric, we were able to have a wonderful green salad with mango slices, a light soup, lamb kebabs and rice - delicious and light. The service was very good and it... More

Such a wonderful selection of food! And so delicious! Not only my opinion: I was there with my friends and coworkers from Indoa and they enjoyed it. Our waiter was very helpful and arranged special meals for our friend who has very strict dietary restrictions: it was not easy (no onion, no garlic, no eggs). We tried both vegetarian and... More

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
