I do not live in Boston so I cannot compare to other Indian restaurants here but this place is far better than many others tried in my life (out of India!). Food was delicious and portions are generous. Service is good and so the atmosphere. Free wifi as well .. But you might not need it ;-)

Food here is AMAZING. Ordered the Meat Samosas, the garlic naan, and the chicken tikka as appetizers, and then had the lamb vindaloo and chicken tikka for entrees. All the food came right away and every dish was delicious. Prices are great, and the restaurant is decorated nicely. Will def be back because I'm hooked, lol

I always look forward to a good Indian meal when I get to Boston from the Cape where most ethnic options are very limited! I have been to Shanti many times and it continues to be rated by Zagat as the #1 Indian in Boston. Last night was a real disappointment. The service was almost non-existent. Many people were served... More

Great Indian food in Dorchester. The lunch buffet leaves much to be desired but I've had some great take out from here. The lamb dishes are great and naan is nicely done.

The lunch buffet is attractively priced, but a little disappointed at the options..The spread had vegetable bhajjis pakoras with mint and sweet chutneys, The refreshing fact was these were fresh and not cold chutneys taken from deep freeze.. The veg options were tasty, however the naans were a little cold.. I am not sure if this was a problem only... More

You will find both the ambience and food very absorbing. They also indulge in fusion dishes. I used to visit this place once in a month during the time I stayed in Boston
