On a hot summer day a friend suggested Indian food: filling, easy to digest and delicious. Terrific location on Newbury Street to people watch, out of the sun, under the umbrella with a gentle breeze to keep me cool. Ordered from the luncheon menu that included soup, rice and entree with three chutney's. The chutney was fantastic and made the... More

My girlfriend and her parents recommended Kashmir one day and we decided to visit. I can honestly say that j don't regularly eat Indian food, but I love the chicken tikka masala and chicken vindaloo.

It's good -- really not quite a 4, but better than a 3. Wide variety of menu choices, food good (though we are not specialists in Indian food) and service unbelievably efficient. As so often, quantities of food were excessive. My wife could eat less than half her dinner, and I managed just over half. I would suggest mixing and... More

Kashmir is on newbury street and its prime location was the reason we choose it. The ambience and service was good but food didn't match up with them. I will not call it authentic indian food it was more of a fusion , n it was not a good one.

I have in many places in Boston to have Indian food but this was the place where I was the most satisfied as the taste of the food was a per the Indian standard. It was seeming that I am getting it in one of the gullies of Indian city...

The location is right on Newbury Street. It is a basement restaurant and the food is fine but missed the typical Indian spicy flavours. The menu was extensive and service was a bit slow. The black Dal can be given a miss as it was not close to the authentic black dal's.

Neighborhood Profile
Back Bay
Wander around this quintessential neighborhood in the heart of Boston for high-end shops, restaurants, and the feeling of city bustle. Its most identifiable skyscrapers, the Prudential Center and John Hancock Tower, are highlights of the city skyline. Visit Newbury street to explore unique and trendy boutiques – as well as every other kind of store imaginable – all housed in beautiful brownstone buildings. In nice weather, restaurant patio seating is packed with Bostonians and tourists alike soaking up the sunshine and enjoying the food. Commonwealth Ave offers a beautiful stroll down residential tree-lined streets. Keep walking towards the Charles River and enjoy a beautiful view by the water. In warmer months, people run and bike on paths running along the esplanade, and sail and kayak on the Charles River. Boylston street, also full of shops, bars, and restaurants, is the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Head towards Copley Square and check out the Boston Public Library, which is particularly beautiful from the Dartmouth street entrance.
