Pretty good Bangladesh /indian food. Tasty curries. The chicken patia was very tasty! A great variety of chuntnies dessert was interesting. I wasn't crazy about the chicken torandi and the Tika Masala was left to be desired. But atmosphere was clean with beautiful. I would definitely got back. (Love Indian and Bangladeshi food)

Hi Ron, Thank you for taking the time to write a review and we appreciate all of the feedback. We're happy that you enjoyed our curries and chutneys. We always use fresh ingredients and create each dish from scratch. Was there anything about the (Tandoori?) Chicken and Tikka Masala that you did not enjoy? Please feel free to reach out so we can best accommodate our diners.. Thank you! The Shanti Team marketing@shantiboston.com

Very good Indian food in an unassuming location. The Chicken Tikka Masala is amongst the best I've had. Not too spicy, not too creamy, but plenty delicious. If you're craving Indian, I would give these folks a try.

Tasty and reliable Dorchester Indian restaurant. It's a classic Indian restaurant, concurrently located near the savin hill red line t stop. Supposedly their chicken tikka masala is famous, but we prefer their lamb korma. The samosas are great, and they offer seasonal fare. I have yet to try their lunch buffet, usually I go for dinner. They have been a reliably good restaurant for more than 10 years.

We go here once a week as a team. I enjoy the food, they have either 2 or 1 vegan options available. They have 3 vegetarian options each week. For $10 the food is good and filling.

If some one is looking for fake Indian food this is the best restaurant to go to. I like how chef doesn't know that biryani is made with basmati rice not regular rice and there was no balance of spices in either of the dishes I ordered. Poor chef making horrible non authentic Indian food. I don't recommend this restaurant to any one looking for authentic Indian food. To non Indian customers this might just do. But to Indian customers AVOID this restaurant at all costs. High price food for very pathetic tasting food. Hey chef hope u learn to cook!!

My mom introduced shanti to my wife and I for the buffet. The service was great. The food was excellent, and my wife tried lamb for the first time and loved it, we have since revisited shanti at least half a dozen times and have not had no luck with lamb on the buffet menu again.
