I like the service, atmosphere and the great location with the patio to enjoy outdoor weather with of course food.

279 Newbury St. -- A very nice and cozy Indian restaurant with a terrace. A very welcoming staff and atmosphere serving good food. For those who do not know, this restaurant does not serve beef. After the meal, they prepared a very hot chicken curry to take out. Since there are not many Indian restaurants in the area, I would... More

I ate here with three other people. If it hadn't been raining, we would have loved to sit outside and been part of the great street scene on Newbury. All four of us loved everything we ordered and the service was friendly and efficient. We got there early which was good because the place filled up fast after 7:00. Take... More

We really didn't plan on eating Indian food on our trip to Boston, but happened by this place after our visit to the Prudential Center. It was nice to sit outside for dinner and the staff was very friendly. We started with the Kashmir vegetable platter. It was very tasting with different fried vegetable concoctions and the 3 dipping sauce... More

Food not great at all. Location is great, that's probably the reason they are doing well. Outdoor seating better. Indoor too stuffy and not lit well.

We love Indian food and make sure we sample this cuisine in every city we visit. The best being in London, but we felt this was a pretty good runner up. The patio in front was fun to sit in as all the locals were out on Newbury Street due to the awesome weather. We had great service, attentive, but... More

We have eaten Indian food in many places, and were happily surprised to find an excellent Indian restaurant in Boston. For starters, we had the non-vegetarian platter. The meat samosas were particularly tasty - flavorful and with a good texture. For bread we stayed with the plain basket. The poori was a bit dry but the naan was great for... More

Our group enjoyed the meal which was pretty good value. Service was good although our waitress sometimes had difficulty understanding our orders. I wouldn't really recommend the Paneer Dopiaza which I wasn't keen on but the starters and other meals were good.

Only took off one star because my second visit was disappointing. My first visit was awesome! Great food. Told the waitress to make the food extra spicy and that's exactly how it came. Delicious and so flavorful. Got the Lamb curry and chicken tikka masala and both were great. Went on a separate occasion to the buffet and although the... More
