Worst Service EVER! – Seriously, I was appalled by the service. I have never neith were the other people at my table have been treated so bad. When they dropped the plates and drinks they would leave it at the edge and no hand it to you. They would be pointing at our table and talking to each other. The food was alright it left a lot to be disired, the mango lassi that I had was too sweet.
Wow! – I had the goat masala and it was amazing. We tried a few appetizers and they were also very good. Prices were reasonable for this city. I will eat here again the next time I am in town. Just plain old good indian food. Good sized portions too.
best indian food in boston – This is by far the best Indian food in Boston for the money (and I am Indian, so I have the right to say this!) We ordered their take out religiously and ate inside whenever we introduced this secret find to a new friend. The food is consistently excellent and the servings are plentiful. My boyfriend and I always fight over who gets the leftovers. I could understand why some people may walk right past the restaurant since it's garden level and doesn't seem too enticing I suppose they could relocate to Newbury St. and charge three times the amount while serving smaller amounts in fancy dishes (Kashmir - good, but overpriced since it's forced to be "upscale). They added another location in the Allston/Brighton area and although we lived over there, I still prefer the Kenmore location.
Really tastey food. – India Quality was my main stop for Indian food when I lived in Boston. Located close to downtown and Boston University, IQ has tastey food, as spicy or mild as you ask for, with a smallish, laidback, dining area that is still fancy enough that you might feel you should remove your Red Sox cap. The lamb tikkamasala is so tender. Try their kormas as well. They also have a good selection of vegetarian dishes. Food is served in traditional Indian way. If you go in a group, you might want to order a few dishes and share. Usually no wait.
MY GO-TO INDIAN! – When I need a good chiken tikka and saag mushroom, I call my friends at India Quality for take-out. There is no better restaurant in Boston. I recommend this to anyone who loves Indian food or wants to try it for the first time.
Yummy! Great Service. – India Quality delivered food to me and my boyfriend outside of their usual dining in service, saving us a few bux. They were timely, and the food was so yummy!
A unique, high-end Indian experience in Kenmore Square. – The Scene
Framed prints and glass tables adorned with fresh bouquets and needlework make this one of the more formal Indian restaurants you'll find in Boston. Sitar music mingles with the aroma of curry, herbs and other spices, while a diverse clientele--students from nearby Boston University, Indian patrons and loyal professionals--trades dishes. Servers, dressed in white shirts and ties, are incredibly gracious.
Start with the mixed platter appetizer, an assortment of chicken tikka, samosa, saag tikki, vegetable pakora and chicken pakora. Vindaloo entrees of chicken, lamb, beef and shrimp come hot and spicy enough to induce perspiration. Specialties featuring fresh goat meat are more flavorful than their lamb counterparts. Twenty different homemade breads are perfect for wiping up leftover sauce. If your tooth is sweet enough to handle it, the sugary gulab jamun proves an excellent dessert. For a pleasant palate cleanser, try the aromatic chai.
Everything I Hoped For – Tasty authentic Indian food that is reasonably priced. I love the vindaloo dishes. There is nothing like some pratha bread with some spicy hot curried lamb on it and some long grain rice. Great portions and ambiance (the outside of the restaurant makes it look decievingly trashy). Highly recommended.
If you just walk past you're missing out – I have to admit that the name turned me off for quite some time. A quality establishment shouldn't have to advertise that. I eventually tried it out as part of my quest to find the best Indian food in Kenmore. I would go so far as to say that I found the best in the city. Many flavorful options make it possible to order a different delicacy every time. I prefer the Aloo Palak, tender baby potatoes cooked in spicy green spinach. My boyfriend always picks the Chicken Muglai; he swears is the best meal he's ever eaten. Round out the meal with tandoori breads, basmati rice, and homemade chutney and you have yourself a true dining experience. Don't forget about the spectacular service... the waiters will make you feel instantly comfortable, the food is always out so quickly and your water glass will be constantly refilled.
