    If looking for indian it's great, the tikka masala chicken is the best, but watch out they might mix your spice levels... Very nice staff lent us an umbrella while it rained so we could get a cab...

    First time at Kashmir and wasn't sure what to expect. Service was pleasant and prompt. Decent wine list. Went with a friend. We got basic naan, the vegetarian platter for an appetizer and shared a meal (can't recall the name)of cauliflower and potatoes over rice. It was all very good. Service was prompt. Prices weren't terrible considering the location. Overall a nice late lunch/early dinner. I would go back.

    My boyfriend&I recently took time from moving to have Friday lunch. We both had goat dishes: beyond amazing! We sat outside&marveled at the copper bowls our food were served in. It looked small, but neither of us could finish our meals. The goat was so tender we could have used plastic spoons to extract meat from the bone. The drinks were tasty, particularly my boyfriend's Ginger Mojito, whichhad plenty of fresh pieces of ginger floating through out. The only Cons were the language barrier&amount of rice: it was very difficult communicating with the servers&host. Their English was unclear&they did not understand us. We requested more rice because the amount given isn't enough for leftover entrees& were told yes& didn't receive it.

    My second time, brought my family for the first. They loved the food. We ate early so the indoor dining was quiet for our party of 6. While most were eating outside. Attentive service.

    I love Kashmir. As a blogger, I have written about it and even invited more than 10 people already to try the amazing food. Yesterday though, I realized that the appearance of Kashmir isn't as clean and fancy as I thought. I went with my boyfriend, who came from New York,and he noticed right away that the wall he was sitting next to had a hole. They tried to paint the wall but just left the white layer circle in a green wall. The seats were ripped and overall it needs a lot of work. If it wasn't in Newbury Street, I think I wouldn't care that much. This place is still an amazing restaurant to go, especially in the evening. I'll be back next week, but I think I'll sit outside. It's prettier there.

    Kashmir has to be the best Boston restaurant for Indian food and it is a plus that it is located on scenic Newbury Street. Great service, good prices and quality food. This has always been one of my favorites.

    The weather was awesome in Boston, so we were lucky enough to get seated outside. Loved watching all the Bostonians walking around taking advantage of the weather! But the food.....AWESOME! We had amazing dishes made to the spice (heat) level we wanted. Love that you can ask for it to suit your palate. We sampled quite a few different items and loved them all. The naan was great - good wine list - and the service was perfect. Attentive, but not bothersome. We will definately go back again when we are in Boston.

    On my prior visit, the food had been so salty that I promised never to return. With vegetarians who welcomed Indian food, I did. My 6 cubes of marinated lamb were tender, without gristle, and not overly-salted, but were served on an unappetizing bed of quickly-strewn iceberg lettuce with some inconsequential garnish. I would have appreciated more of an effort to feed eye/palate. To enjoy a balanced such meal, one must order sides and what seems reasonably price becomes more expensive. My friends seemed to be pleased with their (stew-like) meals. The restaurant's ambience is appealingly exotic inside and lively, with traffic noises, outside upstairs. Outside downstairs one is aware of concrete and hungry birds although there it is quiet.

    Great Indian food, fantastic breads, reasonable prices... and on a summer night, a nice outdoor patio right on Newbury Street. Warning: the sparrows get a little rowdy on the patio... but with little crumbs of the awesome bread falling, I understand completely.

    This place got a good Zagats review, so my expectations were high. Maybe it was just the lunch buffet, but I wasn't impressed with the food. The masala was more like tomato soup, and I was hoping for some spicier options. But the staff was very nice, and the outdoor seating was really amazing on a nice day. Seating options in the sun and in the shade, and they have lots of outdoor space. In general I think there are better indian lunch buffet options in the area, but none with outdoor space, so it just depends on your priorities.

    One of the best places to grab Indian food in Boston is on the city's busiest, most happening street-Kashmir on Newbury Street. The outdoor patio is great for people watching and the indoor ambiance is nice and quiet making it ideal for a date or an intimate group. Consistent service. Fair price. Great food.

    Friends and I went to kashmir quite early on a Sunday evening, after a Sunday afternoon concert, on a beautiful spring late afternoon. There was almost nobldy eating inside, so it was quiet. Whether it would be on a busy evening I cannot guess. The food was very good but I think not worth the high Zagat rating. Everything else was quite fine.

    The food was very good and fairly priced, the portions were large and served with a very nice rice. I thought we were ordering a full bottle of wine and it was half a bottle. I thought the wine menu should have been more carefully marked. The atmosphere is very pleasant and we went during a relatively quiet time 5pm on a Sunday. They did not mark that I had honored the reservation although I did check in with my name at the reception desk. Open Table notified me and it was corrected.

    Kashmir was OK. The service was great, but that was the best part. The restaurant is dirty- a lot of dusk around and food marks on the walls where we sat. The benches are also extremely scratched up and uncomfortable. My husband ordered his food "as spicy as possible" and still had to ask for a side because it was mild. Would rather go to Tantric when it reopens.

    Reservation made one week prior and when we arrived, on a snowy night, there were very few diners and almost no foot traffic. 5 people in our party and we were seated at a table in the walkway for customers and servers. I asked to be moved and the rude hostess dismissed my request and said we don't have anywhere else to put you. I looked around and saw a dozen tables open. The manager chimes in and says, oh we can't combine any tables, we need to keep them open for people who might walk in. After our meal, I told the manager that he could've respected the customers wishes. He was very defensive. I told him that I would be reviewing Kashmir online and mentioning how rude he was and his response "go ahead, I don't care".
