Built on family recipes, Taj Mahal Restaurant features an array of North Indian specialties. Chefs start with a few basic spices, such as onions, garlic, and ginger, to create their aromatic sauces for dishes such as vegetable korma, chicken tikka masala, and saag gosht—cubes of lamb over a spicy spinach purée. Both lunch and dinner feature buffets lined with a spread of vegetarian and seafood entrees, rice biryanis, and tandoori specialties. Proving that one does not have to bite into something to find it delicious, the dessert menu features housemade mango ice cream, Indian-style rice pudding, and raw gossip.

People eat three times a day to prevent rebellious stomachs from escaping in search of peanut brittle, their natural prey. Today's Groupon uses the power of South Asian cuisine to placate restless tummies: for $15, you get $30 worth of international cuisine and drinks at Shanti: Taste of India in Dorchester. This Groupon is not valid for Shanti's lunch buffet.

More than 10 years ago, Shanti opened to provide the South Boston area with fresh, authentic Indian food. After realizing that the subcontinental focus limited the range of noshing experiences, the founders soon expanded their menu to also include Pakistani and Bangladeshi dishes. Now, stylish lamb, beef, and goat parade onto plates in a variety of spice suits, including the Indian gosht vindaloo ($11.99) and the Pakistani gosht kadai ($11.99). A well-equipped squadron of nine vegetables guards the nabaraton korma's creamy sauce ($10.99). Authentically stamp a palate-passport with the shrimp bhuna, seasoned shrimp imported from Bangladesh ($12.99). Tour the menu by blindfolding yourself, spinning around, and pointing randomly at your dinner, or engage the knowledgeable staff in a friendly game of 20 Questions to receive a personal recommendation.

The rich red walls and tablecloths give Shanti a regal ambience that reaches its full and inevitable consummation when the delectables arrive in gilded dishes. At the nod of your head, goblets full of beer ($3–$6.95), wine ($5.50–$7.50), or a creamy yogurt lassi ($3.99) levitate to the table in anticipation of exuberant toasts. Reservations are suggested for parties of eight or more and can be made online here.

More than 100 Yelpers give Shanti an average of four stars. Eighty-eight percent of more than 90 Urbanspooners recommend it, and three Insider Pagers give it a four-star average.

  • This is amazing Indian. Since we don't really know anything about Indian food, we always end up asking questions; the staff always helps us choose the best meal for us. – Cassie M., Yelp
  • Shanti is the real deal - high quality food at reasonable prices. – Mark P., Yelp
  • This is some of the best Indian food I have had. I come here with my family and we each get different things and share. The flavors are so rich. ─ Emma M., Insider Pages

Maharaja's mammoth dinner menu offers an array of traditional dishes, vegetarian-friendly fare, and a variety of freshly baked roti bread. Meat and seafood that have been marinated in a yogurt, ginger, and garlic sauce are broiled over charcoal to create succulent tandoori dishes ($9.95–$11.95), and a medley of vegetable dishes, such as kofta curry with dumplings, energize herbivores for stilt-walking strolls on scenic beaches ($8.75). Diners can get stomach juices flowing with an appetizer of dahi bhalla, which consists of lentil cakes served with yogurt ($2.95), or a small plate of crispy samosas stuffed with spiced potatoes and green peas ($2.75). Instead of licking ice sculptures at a fancy gala, patrons can cool off taste buds with a refreshing lassi, a sweet or salty whipped yogurt drink ($1.95), before enjoying a cup of raisin- and nut-topped Indian rice pudding ($2.95).

Embracing the traditional flavors and aromas of Indian cuisine, the chefs at Taste of India strive to create richly satisfying meals using fresh, high-quality ingredients. A tandoor oven and pet dragon help them to roast spice-crusted orders of chicken, lamb, and seafood before they crown each dish with creamy sauces or fiery gravies. In addition to meat-laden entrees, the team forges platters of vegetarian-friendly fare with house-made cheese and marriages of vegetables.Though the environment is casual and airy, crisp white tablecloths drape each table in the dining room. Burgundy carpeting and green-tiled wall patterns add splashes of color, and large windows flood the space with natural light.

Saffron's chefs toss fresh ingredients together to craft Indian fusion cuisine as vibrant as the eatery’s blue and purple neon lights and orange draperies. Laden with delicious tandoor dishes, Bombay favorites, vegetarian plates, and other good-mood-inducing fare, buffet carts roll out during lunchtime, facilitating all-you-can-eat samplings and all-you-can-throw food fights. A full bar slings imported beers, wines, and liquors, perfect for lubricating lips between bites, and a 150-seat banquet hall accommodates large groups of hungry humans determined to celebrate a special event.

Today Kama owner and chef Vikram Singh cooks his internationally influenced Indian cuisine with a goal to give diners an experience that stimulates all the senses. Perhaps that calculated idea came from his background in mathematics and engineering. Or perhaps it came from his father, a renowned chef in India whose cuisine has impressed King Abdullah of Jordan and former German chancellor Helmut Kohl. After a successful career working with numbers, Vikram and his wife opened Kama to bring the local area an inspired, unique Indian menu?and one that would certainly meet his father?s inimitable standards.

Chef Singh actually draws on four decades of experience crafting his made-from-scratch sauces, homemade paneer, and spicy lamb dishes. To keep things interesting, he engages American, French, and Chinese traditions as he invents entrees such as tamarind-glazed baby back ribs and lamb tacos. But he isn?t the only one creating new tastes under his roof. Kama?s bartenders mix cocktails with fresh-squeezed juices and spike martinis with unconventional flavors such as cucumber, cinnamon, and rosemary. The restaurant recently received a 2014 Michelin Bib Gourmand award, given to the guide's favorite spots for high-quality cuisine at good value.
