Through trial and error, this is the best Indian food in town. They have a huge selection and you can order through Eat24, Seamless, Foodler, Grubhub and a bunch of other food apps. Their Tikka Masala gets an A+.

Had take out delivered from here last night. Tried the tandoori shrimp, some curried lentils, and garlic naan and everything was good. They have a large menu with lots of options. The only complaint is that it seemed like some of the stuff got dropped...More

This Indian spot is in Roslindale Village, a neighborhood of Boston. We had the Sunday lunch buffet and it was really good and fresh! We are not North Indian gourmet experts, but there were two chicken dishes and a beef curry, biryani rice, veggie Dosa,...More

Service was very good, ambiance was fine at this Indian restaurant, but unfortunately the food was mediocre. Spinach and chicken was decent, but lamb tikka, a tandoori dish, was way over cooked in very large chunks, and was tough, dry and flavorless. I normally love...More

The food is inexpensive and tasty, and the restaurant itself is clean with very nice and fast service. You can't go wrong ordering anything off the menu - the naan's were especially yummy.
