About Kashmir

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.

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.

Delicious food - one of my favorites in Boston. The tandoori stuff is great, though I'm also a huge fan of the range of vegetarian options. Not to be missed if you like Indian!

Although the location is excellent, the food and service were just okay. One of our drinks needed to be returned because the glass was very dirty. Further, the men's bathroom was absolutely disgusting and it was early in the evening- 6:30.

Just an awful experience. Picked this place because of the reviews. Slow service, food was cold when it came out and one meal arrived 10 mins after the others. Service was terrible and the only explanation was “we are busy” - if you can’t handle a full restaurant then you shouldn’t have this many tables and do delivery. Don’t ever come here!!

Loved the restaurant- service was great, food was delicious, not the best Indian I've ever had but definitely not the worst. My only complaint is the outdoor seating area is home to a flock of birds that were so unnerving we had to move inside.

We were meeting a friend from out of town for dinner and decided to go to Indian. We felt a little rushed when we first sat down since we were planning on having a relaxing dinner and catching up. The drinks were good and the food was good. With many other options in Boston, we will not be back before trying other places.

Second visit back to Kashmir before attending Red Sox game. Now 16 y/o insisted on returning, and we were not disappointed. Food portions are adequate, and they will bring more rice if you want more. Almost forgot our Nan"bread", but after a quick check it came out directly from the kitchen piping hot. Excellent experience with Indian food here both times.

Our group consisted of Indian-food lovers and some new to the cuisine. Everyone found excellent options, and the newbies are now Indian-food lovers too! Excellent, authentic, unpretentious food with friendly staff and indoor/outdoor dining -- perfect.

Good, solid Indian food at a reasonable price. The meat samosas are some of the best I've ever had. The Biryani was good as well. Be sure you order it hot if you like spice.

Everything was good overall with the exception of having to send the lamb curry back for spicing. "Medium-to-hot" came out as "spiceless and bland". When the dish was returned to me it was spot-on and zesty. The waiter seemed astounded that I wanted a curry that tasted like an Indian curry.

Food was great, as always. Our wait staff forgot to put our order in, and continued to forget about us throughout the night-- even after the obvious mistake. They just stated it was busy, but did no further attempt to reconcile or even just provide normal service afterwards. Very disappointed.

This is a North Indian style restaurant. Food was very average, and the biriyani was over cooked. Servers seemed not very knowledgeable about the food being served and did not engage positively. Food was pricy for it's quality and quantity. I would not recommend this place for good Indian food.

Good place for Indian and Vegetarian food. The food was good and had some great flavors and spice. However, the ambiance and service was lacking. If you are looking for good Indian food I would definitely recommend this spot. The restaurant itself though doesn't leave a great impression.
