We were seated right away. The food was good. This only being our second time eating Indian food I was hoping for more seasoning but the nann was delicious. The staff were attentive and friendly.

Passage to India has been one of our favorites for a number of years. The restaurant is casual and comfortable, service is quick and friendly, and the food is simply great. Prices are very reasonable too. We will be back again and again.

Went for lunch from Peabody Essex museum around the corner. Efficient service. Food fresh and homemade (in the good way). Sauces were not salty or heavy. So good!!!!! We ate everything but the plates. If I lived in Salem they would know me here.
