Delicious! Great food, good price.

Don't challenge them to make the Vindaloo as spicy as they can. I have had to do this at other places but here doing so will result in Vindaloo to spicy to enjoy and possibly fatal. I got what I asked for none the less. I had to order a mild batch and mix them. Once I figured out my ratio of optimum spicy goodness it was very tasty. Loved the Mullagatawny soup too. Everything was great and we will return. Next time I will try the Vindaloo as is and not be a smart a$$. Service was not the best. Don't go if you are in a hurry as the staff is polite but not exactly fast. There was one MAYBE two other couples in the restaurant when I asked for the check and it still took ten minutes to get.

Friendly efficient service and great food. If you're ordering fiery, spring for the yogurt condiment ,

The food is great but be careful with the spicy food, as it is hot. That being said, I would order the same meals again!

From Our Editors

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
