Shanti is a lovely restaurant for dinner. The atmosphere is cosy and attractive, the food is tasty with a wide variety of Indian specialties, and the prices are very reasonable. A great spot for a special dinner, or to treat yourself!

Shanti has such an incredible buffet at a great price. The food is always so freshly made and so flavorful. I usually go there almost every Sunday and sometimes during the week when I have time.

Through trial and error, this is the best Indian food in town. They have a huge selection and you can order through Eat24, Seamless, Foodler, Grubhub and a bunch of other food apps. Their Tikka Masala gets an A+.

This is a small, but very clean venue right on Washington Street. We tried several dishes and all were excellent, including garlic naan, chicken tikka masala (fantastic sauce), chana masala, aloo gobi - potatoes were just a bit under done, but the cauliflower was cooked...More
