Best of Boston
1999 Best Indian Restaurant
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. Try the chicken masala or the vegetarian appetizer platter—a variety of fried treats that are considered snack foods on the subcontinent. Entrees come in copper vessels atop tea-lights to keep them warm. You can request how spicy you want your food: mild for the wuss, and spicy for the brave.
