Went to Shanti: Taste of India in the Savin Hill section of Dorchester recently. This intimate Indian restaurant on Dorchester Avenue is a really nice place. The atmosphere at Shanti is cozy--almost moody--with lots of dark colors and low lighting. We ordered the murg shaag (chicken with spinach and spices) and Tandoori chicken kebabs, both of which were delicious. In addition to the great food, the waitstaff at Shanti was gracious and helpful, and the prices, while a bit high for the amount of food we received, were really not all that bad considering the quality of the food.
So will Shanti: Taste of India be a featured restaurant on the Boston's Hidden Restaurants site? Well, at this point, it is a distinct possibility, but I want to try Shanti a couple more times before making a final decision. In short, though, Shanti: Taste of India is a fine choice for Indian food, and one of many great restaurants that make their home in Dorchester, a section of Boston that is really starting to attract the attention of food lovers in the Boston area.
For those who want the address for Shanti: Taste of India, here it is: Shanti: Taste of India, 1111 Dorchester Avenue, Dorchester, MA 02125; the phone number for Shanti is (617) 929-3900
