Best of Boston

2011 Best Indian Restaurant


It’s not exactly off the beaten path, but don’t hold that against this Newbury Street establishment. The menu packs in polished regional specialties like lentil-based dal makhani, as well as favorites like the ubiquitous butter chicken. The only downside to a meal on the patio is the view of the shopping crowds, but Kashmir’s mellow atmospher—and the hearty potato-stuffed naan—are worth elbowing aside a few tourists.
