It was overall pretty good. Nothing remarkable either in a positive direction or a negative direction.
Great restaurant. Excellent authentic food accommodating staff. We’re fans.
Marvelous level of spice, and speedy service as well. A gem!
Delicious food. Some of the best Indian we’ve ever sampled.
We had vegan korma, lentil fritters and chicken korma. Food was delicious. The mint chutney that accompanied papadum bread was the best we ever tasted. Service was little slow, but friendly. Indoor and outdoor seating, very nice decor.
Great food and service. We sat outside and enjoyed the people watching. Highly recommend.
Great service but food quality went down
Our dinner at Shanti was.excellent. We had Saag Paneer, spicey goat, plus a Vindaloo lamb dish, and rice. Service was so friendly and quick.
The service was good and everyone was very pleasant. However, the food was very bland. When we mentioned that, we were told that we needed to specify if we wanted it to have more spice. Unfortunately, by bland we mean there was practically no spice to the food and, unlike other Indian restaurants we've been to, there were no indications next to the dishes on the menu to tell how spicy a dish would be cooked.
Very nice Indian restaurant in East Cambridge near Kendall Square. The food was quite good with fresh baked naan. The staff was friendly and helpful.
From Our Editors
The husband-and-wife team that runs Shanti-Taste of India has seen more than their fair share of couples enter their restaurant’s doors on a date and return, many years later, with their children in tow. The love that the duo has put into their business since 1999 is certainly returned by their clients. More tangible proof of their popularity comes from the eatery’s 2012 award from Boston magazine for Best Indian Restaurant. The authentic food served at Shanti blends both Indian and Bangladeshi cuisines, a tastier way to learn about the world than dipping a globe in ranch dressing and trying to eat it. Boston reviewers particularly enjoyed the vegetable pakoras—which they called “deep-fried pockets of pillowy goodness”—as well as the tandoori dishes, which the kitchen staff fires in a 900-degree oven.
