Best of Boston

2018 Best Indian Restaurant


What started as a neighborhood spot in Dorchester has expanded into a mini empire, its latest outpost bringing fiery vindaloos and perfectly flaky samosas to Kendall Square’s technorati. And what better way to fuel an all-night coding session than with forkfuls of tender lamb biryani? Wind down a long week by sampling a jammy Shiraz from Sula (the vineyard that pioneered India’s fledgling wine industry), which happens to pair perfectly with Shanti’s heavenly goat curry. Multiple locations.
