Kashmir - Back Bay: $15 for $35 Worth of Indian Cuisine at Kashmir

Jump to: Reviews | What Explorers Were Really Looking For

Treat your mouth to the culinary equivalent of a fabric-fluttering, sari-spinning, Aishwarya Rai–romancing Bollywood song and dance with today’s Groupon. For $15, you get $35 worth of Indian cuisine at Kashmir in Back Bay. Though the actual state of Kashmir might be under dispute, the state of its cuisine is indisputably exquisite.

The high-end elegance of the restaurant’s atmosphere sets the tone for the accompanying menu. There are traditional rice dishes, such as murg biryani (basmati rice cooked with chicken chunks, nuts and spices, $16), or beef options, such as beef vindaloo (beef cubes cooked with potatoes, a touch of lemon and a tangy sauce, $16). Tandoori-style dishes from chicken ($14 for a half order) to shrimp ($23) are offered alongside other lamb and seafood options.

Not everything is quite so meaty thanks to an extensive vegetarian menu. Baigan bhartha (eggplant mashed and sautéed w/ onions, garlic, ginger, and spices; $15) and saag paneer (spicy spinach with home-made cheese; $15) are a few of the meatless possibilities. And no trip to an Indian restaurant is complete without a starter of fresh-baked naan. Standard naan is $3, with upgrades such as chicken pesto or apricots costing a couple extra bucks. Order up some soup, salad, or desserts to round out your authentic dining experience.

Reviews

Kashmir has been a Back End mainstay: Boston magazine awarded the restaurant Best Indian in 1999:

  • Kashmir is as authentic as Indian cuisine gets in this town, and with its elegant outdoor summer dining, it's a good place to get a feel for some of the tastiest ethnic cuisine in town. – Boston

Urbanspooners give Kashmir a 78%, and Yelpers give it 3.5 stars.

  • I recently went to Kashmir with a friend. I've had a lot of Indian food in the past because I'm a huge fan in general and this is definitely one of the better places. – Rachel M., Yelp
  • Kashmir has indoor and outdoor seating areas. The inside is small, but cozy. I prefer to eat at Kashmir in the summer months and sit outside. Great people watching, great food, great wine and beer selections. – Peg P., Yelp

What Explorers Were Really Looking For

The Indian cuisine at Kashmir might remind you why, in the face of ridicule, Christopher Columbus sailed west, hoping to find a faster route to India. History, of course, remembers him as a somewhat creepy goofball who hated children going to school on Mondays. Here are some famous explorers and what they were actually looking for:

Christopher Columbus
Looking For: A faster route to India
Found: America, plus an island near Haiti composed of a sentient gas cloud filled with evil mirrors

Ponce de Leon
Looking For: The Fountain of Youth
Found: Chalice of Consolation

Neil Armstrong
Looking For: The Moon
Found: A soundstage in Reno
