A little away from Boston, but the drive is worth it. They serve delicious south indian and street food varieties everyday.

My wife and I visited during thanksgiving weekend. The samosas and chutney were great appetizers. We both had paneer curries and both of them were very good. The service was wonderful. This is worth a visit, especially if you go during the buffet.
