Indian
For close to twenty years, Kashmir’s sunny brick patio, with the aroma of Indian spices wafting through the air, has been a staple of Boston’s famed Newbury Street. Bostonians convene over tandoor oven specialties, fresh fish or seafood, and sauce-simmered meats. Indoor seating is enhanced by Indian calligraphy and a blend of classic and contemporary Indian art.

Kashmir’s moderate prices mean you can taste some of the most exotic flavor combinations imaginable from classic family recipes during both lunch and dinner.

Whether you’re looking for authentic Indian cuisine in Boston, shopping on Newbury, or out with friends, relax and enjoy yourself at Kashmir!

    Chicken was under cooked hence the lower grade on food. In the past this was not an issue.

    Excellent food. But the atmosphere inside is not well thought out. The lighting is horrible: bright and hard lighting! It’s easily fixable by turning the light down and diffusing it. A couple of fake candles on the tables can even improve the mood drastically. The food is truly excellent, which is why I go there. But this place can be so much better with just a little better lighting and mood control. We had a great meal though.

    We are never disappointed with our visits to Kashmir! The food is consistently excellent and the service is always great. We had apricot naan this meal which was amazing - we've never seen it on a menu before and loved it! The rack of lamb tandoori was also a treat. Thank you for another wonderful meal :)

    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.

    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

    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.

    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
