We have had take-out food from Paani many times and have loved it every time! Every dish, whether mild or spicy, was absolutely delicious! The owners are warm and welcoming and make every guest, whether eating in or taking out, feel like family. Best Indian food in the MetroWest area!

Though it's a very small local Indian restaurant, they put out delicious dishes which would rival any big city's top Indian spots. Food is fresh, spicy when it's supposed to be and simply tasty when it's not. A local gem!

After three trips to India, I was desperately trying to find at least something remotely close to the heavenly flavorful dishes of Delhi and Mumbai in the Greater Boston area. I think today I found exactly what I was looking for at Paani - and it is only 5 minutes drive from my house. What a nice surprise! We started... More

My husband and I have eaten dinner at Paani Restaurant several times. On all occasions, the food and service were excellent. The restaurant and restrooms are impeccably clean (not always the case with Indian restaurants). The atmosphere is elegance in a neighborhood restaurant setting -- cloth table cloths at dinner, elegant serving dishes and excellent table service -- and the... More

Best Indian for miles. Have been going here for years and love the recipes. Experiment and talk to the owner when you order, you'll discover plates that will absolutely delight you.

Great delicious food! It's made fresh and everything tasted great! The owners do what they can to get you seated but it's a small space and it's usually packed. Best to make reservations if you can. I love their spices and their chicken is all white meat (although I prefer dark meat actually.)

My wife and I have eaten for lunch and dinner a few times. The food is very good; i have been in India a few times and i think the food is authentic. Love their mango lassi; great bargain place for lunch.

It's quite a trek out from Boston, and we hadn't been here in almost a year. The trek was worth it. Really wonderful food, the best Indian food I have in Massachusetts. Quite full, I was still intrigued by the mango desert -- really unique and superb. Can't wait for the next trek out.

I went to this place at 5pm. I was not too hungry and was only interested in snacks. I ordered a vegetable platter. After waiting a while, they told me that this is dinner time and they cannot serve only snacks but I have to mandotarily order for dinner as well. So, I had to come out of that place.... More

At first I had mourned the closing of Mother India in Waltham, not knowing where to get decent Indian food. Well...move over Mother...here's Paani in Sudbury. This very cozy restaurant saturated in mango and saffron colors, has a wide variety of dishes to please both vegetarians and meat-friends alike. The luscious thick korma sauces were as incredible as the tender... More
