My husband visited this place many times for lunch buffets, and used to say Naans are very good. so we went for dinner for the first time and this will be the LAST TIME. Vegetable pakoras were not fried properly. we can taste the dough inside. and the WORST PART is we saw a RAT crawling inside curtains. i can't believe my eyes. felt like vomiting what i ate.won't go this this place again,and won't recommend it to my friends.

Did the other reviewers really eat in the same restaurant as our group? Do they live in the same universe? We went there with a professional chef and a highly skilled amateur (both of whom know and love Indian spices) eager with anticipation based on Zagat and other reviews. Hey, the staff were extremely nice and accommodating, the ambiance wasn't horrible, but the food was, sad to say, pure slop. Not just one dish, but in fact every dish. And we stuck to the classics. We were in shock. I suggest Zagat and Boston Magazine make a return visit to see if they step in the same river twice.

Great food, fairly cheap for big portions, and some of the best indian food around. Can't go wrong! Also: very close to the Savin Hill T stop, so it's really convenient to get to.

Zero complaints for the price. The food is always great even the buffet (if its fresh).

This place is amazing! This is the best Indian food I've ever had, a hidden little jem! Their service is great, super friendly and professional! Definitely worth the trip to Dot!

This rating is overdue. The Shanti is a romantic, well priced and fantastic place to eat with your loved one. We had goat simosas and delicious entrees. my only request is that they serve more deserts. I'll definitely be back there. My girlfriend said she didn't really like Indian food and was licking her fingers. lol.

Fragrant, pillowy, freshly-baked Garlic Naan. The prefect accompaniment to our dishes. Just one of the many varieties we offer! #garliclovers #freshlybaked #indianappetizer

We encourage either option! "Why have Indian-Americans lost the art of eating with their hands?" http://ow.ly/2Zr5sn
And why do Indians abroad eat even a roti with fork and knife?
