Outdoor dining was unexpected, but a nice touch. Prawn Tika Masala was delicious. Momos (veggie) we good too. Tadka Dal was prepared well - could have had a bit more flavor.

We have been coming to Mumbai spice for 5 years or so. Anytime people from out of town have come to visit we have always come here. We used to go about once a month however, over time, meals have gotten more expensive while some of the dishes have gotten smaller. For example, the drums of heaven are now 4 pieces when the menu still says 5 pieces. Otherwise, we will still keep coming back, inflation and COVID probably hurt the business a bit but will be going less often because of the prices. Still always a really delicious meal.

We have been here before, and usually have a uniformly good experience. This time, the bhagare baingan was much too salty. Other than that, we had a lovely time.

Very pleasantly surprised to find this restaurant so close to Symphony hall...a step above the other ethnic eateries in the area and while not especially elegant it was attractive and stylish. Food was also excellent and not at all spicy (although server did not ask for spicing preference). Service itself wasn't entirely seamless but not to the point that it marred the experience. Would definitely come again when in the area.

Very good food and wide variety of dishes. I was with a group of 5, and we tried several appetizers and main dishes, all of which I liked. The menu also seems to accurately label the spiciness; all the dishes labeled mild (which were the only ones I tried) were truly mild while still being flavorful, which is not always true.

Starters were very good. Unusual sequence of food arrival. We ordered Naans and paneer. Naans were brought in way before the paneer only to get cold. Vada pav had no onions or relish. It was tasty, however.
The only cutlery on the table is a fork.
The waitress was very pleasant and despite being only her third day at this restaurant, was helpful.

I like this place a lot. It is conveniently steps away from Symphony Hall, a real find. We eat here whenever we go to some there. They serve very tasty Indian food (they also offer Chinese - maybe next time!) Yummy desserts. The wait service was prompt, efficient and pleasant. It is a very clean and pleasant place to eat and talk. The parking garage is around the corner, across from Whole Foods. Win!

You know you're somewhere special when it's the only place you eat every night that you're in Boston! They make you feel like family and even know your order. Fantastic food, excellent service, perfect atmosphere. I can't relate to the haters who post bad reviews. Hands down my favorite.

Delicious food and outstanding service. We were in and out of there much quicker than expected. There were several tables of Indian folk in the restaurant. To me, that speaks volumes as to the quality of the food.

Conveniently right next to BSO, we had a 6:00 reservation and needed to be at the symphony for a 7:30 show, which we told the waitstaff at the outset. After 20 mins, we had to go find a waiter to get our order in. Had to find a waiter to get the sauces that should have come with pappadams. Had to find waiter to get silverware. Food arrived at table at 7:20. We had to shove it down in 7 minutes to make the doors for symphony. Food was ok, but never again!

The worst Indian restaurant we have ever eaten at, and one of the worst restaurants we’ve been to overall. Food is bland, atmosphere was like a school cafeteria, and they have a restricted liquor license with weird drinks. Poor service - an all around very poor experience.

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!
