The fusion cuisine offered here was surprisingly good however our waiter is what made the experience a bit sour. She was bitter and seemed like she would rather be anywhere but there. The ambiance was simply delightful and neat. Very romantic if that is what you are looking for. Bathrooms are also well kept - something I get fussy about if they are not. We had come here looking for something apart from the traditional Indian cuisine and we definitely got that. The cocktail menu is simply amazing. Nice place to have dinner. I would think that not all of the waiters/waitresses are the same.

Cocktails were superb - my Tamarind Margarita (and I am a purist who normally likes the Classic Margarita)was spectacular.
We ordered solely from the Naan Bar Menu - fusion food - because we wanted something different to regular Indian food (which we cook at home - makes us very fussy!!)
Enjoyed the green apple and potato Chaat, smokey chipotle chicken tikka, Naan kofta sliders, the chutneys, garlic black pepper shrimp and the specialty Naans - flaky Naan with mint was our favourite.
A great pre-theatre choice - we were going to a performance of the Boston Ballet which is a short walk from the restaurant.
Very pleasant surroundings - an old Bank Building - well adapted to suit the demands of a restaurant - still maintains a casual elegance.
Service was good. Worth a visit!

Went with our family because it's one of our favorites in Boston, The food is always good but our waiter kept getting lost. Our drinks took forever to come. and forget about ordering more rounds. Wasn't worth the aggravation. Good food + bad waiter = just average dinner.
