“Solid Indian Food in downtown Boston.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2013

Some colleagues and I hit Tantric for a random Tuesday night dinner while in Boston for business. First, all 4 of us are huge Indian-food fans... so we love it all! The service was very polite, helpful and attentive. We loved the Chicken 69 app (Why 69 and not 65? They described it as tastier than 65... but I imagine the naming has something to do with the overall branding of the restaurant!). Our entrées were spot on if a bit on the spicy side (which we did not mind). The drinks were cold and on target. A couple of us even stayed after dinner for a conversation over drinks and will say that the bartender was definitely not selfish in the allocation of liquor. All in all, it was a nice experience and the food was good. I would recommend it if you find yourself in downtown Boston and craving some Indian!

“Lunch Buffet @ Best !!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2013 via mobile

I was pleasantly surprised with the food given Indian lunch buffet are hit and miss !! The choices of veggies and chicken were standard but cooked well. They also do give you choice to order dosa in the same price of your buffet priced lunch. It's clean and service is good over all - I went twice given on a business trip and would recommend this place.

Delicious, wide choice of varied dishes, good and quick service and excellent prices. We knew we had made the right choice when we saw how many Indians were having dinner there!

“Great lunch buffet on way to Boston Common”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2013 via mobile

Not as much variety as some other Indian buffets I've eaten, but choices that were offered were good. Only 1 dessert choice, would have liked all white-meat chicken. Great atmosphere, clean. Would go back. Lamb excellent.

“Close to authentic India food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2013

Not the best Indian food in Boston but quite close to authentic India food in terms of options, taste, ingredient, spices etc.
