It is a really great Indian bistro. The samosas was disappointing though (I usually love). Chicken tikka masala was delicious! And the lamb as well. The garlic indian bread was a nice starter. The traditional ice cream is extremely sweet, not everyone can handle, And the hot chocolate cake was good, American. Nice variety of cocktails.

We needed a place for a quick meal before a show at The Wilbur. We had noticed this place on other trips to the area and decided to give it a try and were very glad we did! We ordered the Lauki Kofta and the Goan Shrimp Curry and both were very good. We also tried the naan which was... More

I love that this restaurant is right in the theater district of Boston. It's easy to find. Food prices are reasonable and the food is really good. I've been spoiled with good Indian food from Asia (I've had Indian food in Singapore, Malaysia and the Philippines) and what they have here is actually quite good. Would definitely dine there again.

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
