Pretty good. 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 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

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

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

Garlic is one of the major ingredients in our dishes. Another reason to order our Garlic Naan or Curry. #shantiboston
