I love Mumbai Spice and all the options they offer! The servers are pleasant, the food is delicious, and the food is modestly priced. Honestly, it's so hard to pick from all the tasty options they offer! Great place! Will be a regular!

Thoroughly enjoyed our pre-theater dinner at Mumbai Spice. I'd booked a reservation the day before, so our table was ready and waiting for us. We enjoyed a couple of appetizers before the other half of our party arrived, and then a range of entrees. Everything was excellent! Service was prompt and attentive without feeling rushed. Prices, while on the higher side, are reasonable for the area. Atmosphere was very pleasant--would definitely return!

The service was appallingly bad. We had a reservation, and on a super cold night, we asked to have a table far away from the door. But they said they couldn't do that. So we ended up in a corner of the front window. Service was very neglectful: we had to wait and ask for everything, even knives and refills of wine. The food was very mediocre to bad.

The only complaint we had was a light fixture overhead that flickered on and off occasionally; everything else was wonderful, especially the food. The service was excellent also.

We enjoyed the presentation of the dishes on stainless steel trays. If you are one of those folks that hate their food touching this is your place. Food was very nice. Although I am not a vegetarian I often eat that way so appreciated that there were some no meat options, and I found something I was not allergic to as well which is often a challenge.

We enjoy the blend of South Asian and Chinese influences here. It's a go-to before the symphony. Service, though, has always been slow, feels almost like an afterthought!

Have eaten here multiple times. It's proximity to Symphony Hall was the initial draw. If the food were not high quality, we would not dine there as often.

Mumbai Spice is a quality Indian restaurant (with Chinese-Indian options on the menu) that provides a good array of vegetarian and vegan options. The service is generally friendly and efficient. There are very reasonable wine options. Overall, a dependably enjoyable dining experience for this vegetarian.

Perfect location across from Symphony Hall. The food was delicious. We had the special lamb kabobs, and a chicken dish in a mildly spicy vinegar sauce (not sour, though). Salt and pepper cauliflower for our starter was also good, and the rasmalai was light and creamy. The service was friendly but chaotic. It was 35 minutes before they took our order. The appetizer came promptly, but then there was another long gap for the mains. Then they charged our card for the wrong amount (to be fair, they noticed first, but still had to redo it). Fortunately, we were just across the street, so we had time. Go early, and make a reservation; they were turning people away.

We keep coming back to Mumbai Spice. We've eaten at many good Indian cuisine-type restaurants over the years, but Mumbai Spice keeps surprising us with takes on this cuisine we'd never expect - and high-quality renditions of familiar dishes.

I’d recommend for a quick inexpensive meal. Chicken tikka sauce as delicious but short on chicken. Veg biryanis was bland. Naan was yummy. Chickpeas/spinach was tasty.

This is a nice addition to the restaurants near Boston Symphony Hall. Everything was done well, friendly service and good food. I was especially happy with the noise level, so that we could have a very nice conversation while dining. I will definitely return.

We happened upon this last month when we were parking for the Huntington Theater and were thrilled for a different restaurant posttheater. Everything was so delicious that we had to go back this month. Excellent choices and great variety. Deliciously cooked. thank you. This will be our new go to after theater or symphony.

I was craving for an Indian taste so preferred to visit this place since it was to prudential centre. The staff is co-operative. In fact I ordered martini but I forgot to mention that I don't drink alcohol. It was really nice of them to exchange my drink. If I visit Boston downtown will surely visit this place again.

Loved the food. The service was really good as it seems like all the waitstaff keep an eye on all the tables, so we were never left with empty water glasses or dirty plates on the table. We are planning on going back before our next concert at Symphony Hall.
