Decent food, but horrible service. Made a reservation for 9:30 and was rushed through my meal by the waiter. Food was okay, but difficult to enjoy with an anxious waiter hovering. My boyfriend and I were asked to pay the check and leave so they could close 30 minutes before closing.
menu with lots of choices
I love coming here for lunch and get the special. I'm a big fan of korma so, that's what I typically order. Delightful meal, good portions and very fresh food. By far my favorite lunch place in Back Bay!
Best Indian food in Boston. We dine there whenever we’re in the city
The vegetable samosas are the best I've ever had. The naan was especially nice. Our entrees were also good
We came for lunch and were the first guest on a Sunday morning, we had asked for a extra spicy lamb tikimasala which had not once hint of spicy , which was upsetting but the worst part was the lamb tasted old as in cooked the night before and warmed up. I ended up with a terrible upset stomach. I’ve been here before for dinner and hadn’t had a problem but after this lunch experience they really dropped the ball. Won’t be going back can’t risk getting sick again 1star
Been going here for over 20 years. Always enjoyable.
Sent food back it was not great
While the veg appetizers came out before the food the non veg appetizers came with the food. Overall the food was cold. Tandoori platter was tasteless and overdone. Goat/ lamb Rogan Josh was also unexciting. Will not go back.
Best Indian food I ever had! Great service and ambiance.
The restaurant seemed a bit dirty
Location is great!
Server was fine , but seemed exhausted
The food was outstanding - the chicken korma was the best I've had for a while. The poori bread was excellent too.
The best naan in town. Excellent korma dishes. Will come back again.
I used to love this placec, but was surprised how the quality of food and service have dropped significantly. The server missed up our order multiple times, the same dishes I used to love they don't taste the same anymore. I don't think I will be going there anymore.
Food was good, not great. We asked for medium spice but it came as very light in spice. This is a trendy restaurant in a trendy area where food quality was not the priority. But still overall enjoyable.
Best naan bread in Boston. Excellent korma dishes. Do recommend.
Nice dinner, good prices, good food. Ambiance was nice but. I thing special. Great place to take the family for dinner or a date night.
Took too long for the server to take our order. Food was not delicious.
I used to go to Kashmir frequently when I lived in Boston. I haven’t been back in years, and I was very disappointed. The place looks like it hasn’t been renovated (or cleaned) since I left in 2007. The food was mediocre, the menus were dirty and tattered, and the bathrooms were gross. We only stayed to eat because it was late and we were too tired and hungry to find another option.
I won’t be back.
Went with a group of friends. One had somehow never eaten Indian food before. He's now a convert. Nice relaxed place. Friendly service. Food was good. Not epic (as in I wouldn't travel a long way to get there). But it was everything you'll want in a Boston neighborhood restaurant.
Their lunch special is a very good deal. Dinner menus little bit on the expensive side but, considering taste it’s worth trying. Overall it was a great experience. I would love to try it again. First time I tried their lunch special on Friday afternoon Dash I ordered vegetable take a masala. I enjoyed it so much that I decided to go for dinner again the same day. And dinner, however, when I ordered my coffee – I think it was the same gravy and same taste that I tried in lunch. So I’m not sure if they have different taste for different First time I tried their lunch special on Friday afternoon Dash I ordered vegetable tika masala. I enjoyed it so much that I decided to go for dinner again the same day. And dinner, however, when I ordered malai kofta– I think it was the same gravy and same taste that I tried in lunch. Meaning gravy of malai-kofta tasted similar to vegetable tika masala. So I’m not sure if they made different a gravy for Dinner.
Delay in taking our order , restaurant appeared short staffed , appetisers were good. Entrees especially meat was sub standard . Meat was tough and rubbery .
The food was so so. The restrooms were disgusting! Smelled awful!!!!!!
Consistently delicious food and good service. Always a good choice for Ondian food.
Before I start, I am Indian but I don't expect the food to taste like authentic Indian food. But I do expect the food to be generally good, regardless. I ordered lamb kebabs (Boti Kebab), Chicken Tikka Masala and Garlic Naan and Daal.
The Lamb Kebab was so dry and over cooked, it was hard to cut or chew. I barely finished one piece. More over, I asked for the food to be spicy and instead, what I got was mouth burning, tasteless, doused in God knows what spicy seasoning chunks of over cooked meat. Similarly, the Daal was so hot that it was hard to eat. Correctly prepared 'Spicy' Indian food is hot but not unbearable, and it is still full of flavor. My guest asked for chillies on the side and he said it was a $1.50 charge. I don't understand how this place is still in business.
Despite that I gave the cashier my credit card to pay for the entire table, and that my reservation is under my name, the server and the cashier took my friends credit card and basically double charged us, my credit card and his credit card. It took us unnecessary 10 minutes direct if I the double charge. I am upset in the first place that I insisted and explicitly asked them to use my credit card for the entire table, but they went behind my back
You can actually hear your dinner companions speaking at normal volume. Oh — and the food is delicious. That combination is hard to find in Boston, even on a Monday night. I think it's impossible on weekends.
Excellent as always
Not very authentic; flavorless
Terrible experience.. food was aweful. Totally waste of money for me I guess.
Came here 14 years ago and it was great then it was even better now the food was tip top and I eat Indian food a lot coming from Birmingham UK all in all a great Indian ruby murry for all yow lovely Bostonian folk
Food was fantastic and service was great! Best molé I’ve ever had. I’ve been recommending it to all my friends. Can’t wait to come back next year.
The restaurant that it once was is no longer.
Great food!!! Great service!!!
Service was really bad. Restroom where not at all clean.
Lovely, most accommodating servers with a patient, kind demeanor. They gave us advise about the dishes to order and guided us in the level of spice. Great food, beautifully presented in copper dishes. Easy to share.
The cocktails were also lovely and very Indian in there flavors.
Will be back
Sorry, you're getting a crap review because I didn't eat there. Some jerk routinely uses my email for things like this that he doesn't want to use his own email for. I hate him, I wish you poisoned him.
Kashmir has great food in a no frills atmosphere right on Newbury Street. Service can be a bit slow, but not terrible. I have a gluten allergy and I was a little uncertain if the waiter understood the issue, but I've eaten here a few times and never had a problem. Lastly, the spice level is not clear to me either. I ordered medium the first time just to be safe and it was not spicy at all. I ordered hot the next time and the food was inedible because it was so spicy (there is an extra hot level so I can't imagine how hot that must be!). The order patio is nice in the summer. Definitely recommend if you like Indian food!
Wonderful authentic food! Friendly staff. The service was attentive and well timed. All 5 dishes were flavorful but not too overly spiced. The Lamb Curry was just the right portion. Cold shrimp with cucumber and yogurt appetizer was my favorite. Surprisingly affordable!
I will never be back there. Wost food I ever ate. I ordered the mixed grill tandoor , with extra sauté onions, no rice, dal as a side with buttered chapati . My beverage was a margaraita with vodka and dry vermouth with wedge of lime....
My Coctail came , I asked for my lime , slices of lime on a plate came out to me ..
My cocktail did not taste of any alcohol , only a sugary pink drink a child could enjoy.
Next my food came out .. first came the rice ? Then the dal and really greasy chapati ..
My mixed grill came , what a disappointment . I got a chicken thigh , 2 big chunks of chicken Brest , 2 big chunks of lamb , and a king Prawn , sitting on bits of lettuce with a few raw onions . I asked the server for sauté onions . He came back with a plate of raw onions to me .. anyhow The chicken thigh in places near the bone was undercooked, the chicken breast was so dry and tough , the prawn was rubbery and over cooked and the lamb was like 2 old boots , so tough .. the plate of food was inedible ..
I told the waiter I could not eat the food .. I paid for my sugary drink the dal which was nice but cold .. I was so hungry , angry and annoyed by the experience . The server did not charge me for the mixed grill . I left expecting somebody to say I’m really sorry , but heads were lowered as I passed by the hosts reception area . I couldn’t wait to go to eataly and pick up something sweet to take away the taste of Kashmiri , the understanding of my order was poor , the quality of food , beverage not even worth rating and the aftercare of my experience was unprofessional and poorly handled .. despite all my server seemed like a pleasant man so I gave him a 2 dollar tip . I work for a well known company and already have told at least 20 people of my poor experience and warned them never to venture there ... and I love my Indian food , it’s my favorite over any food .. however that was not any kind of food that was placed before me ..new chef , new barman needed ASAP !
