My friend and I ordered take out from here. It was well priced and we had a lot left over. I ordered the matter paneer and my friend ordered the Chana Masala. Both were delicious. The restaurant had both gluten free and vegetarian options which was very nice. I definitely recommend ordering the mango lassi.

Well, if this is the little place in Roslindale Square, then I've got it right. I was so lost in Boston that day. That's what happens when you escape to live in Maine, then return to the big city. It eats you up. Speaking of eating up, my friend in Rozzy, Rozzie? who is moving, and I, had planned to... More

This is a very good restaurant. The mulligatawny soup is the best I've had, and the samosas are excellent. All of the dishes I've tried, chicken tikka, maki dahl, many others, have all been terrific. Hard to imagine going wrong.

I do not live in Boston so I cannot compare to other Indian restaurants here but this place is far better than many others tried in my life (out of India!). Food was delicious and portions are generous. Service is good and so the atmosphere. Free wifi as well .. But you might not need it ;-)

Food here is AMAZING. Ordered the Meat Samosas, the garlic naan, and the chicken tikka as appetizers, and then had the lamb vindaloo and chicken tikka for entrees. All the food came right away and every dish was delicious. Prices are great, and the restaurant is decorated nicely. Will def be back because I'm hooked, lol

I always look forward to a good Indian meal when I get to Boston from the Cape where most ethnic options are very limited! I have been to Shanti many times and it continues to be rated by Zagat as the #1 Indian in Boston. Last night was a real disappointment. The service was almost non-existent. Many people were served... More

Great Indian food in Dorchester. The lunch buffet leaves much to be desired but I've had some great take out from here. The lamb dishes are great and naan is nicely done.
