I think this is the first Shanti restaurant that opened in Stockholm and I would have expected something better but I was very disappointed. The service was very fast but waiters seemed wanted the guests to eat (and leave) as soon as possible to make space for the next ones. The quality of my meat (lamb) was not great: chewy... More

We went here yesterday and they were so kind to us and helped us with everything we asked for. The food was really really good and it couldn't have been better. It is a very popular restaurant, so be in time or book a table. We will absolutely come back!

After a whole week of just seafood. We decided to give Shanti a try. Absolutely stunning place with chic interiors serving authentic Indian food. The waiters were very gentle and caring. I don't think there was a downside to our visit to Shanti. Side Notes: 1) If you're into hot stuff, then try their spicy chicken kebab. 2) Their other... More

I live close to this lovely Indian restaurant and have visited it several times. All of the staff is very welcoming and the service is very good. But what is most important is the real genuine Indian flavours and tastes of the food. They serve both vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes. Do not forget to order the delicious naan bread as...

Walking home from work I often walk by Shanti. Hungry as I was this specific Friday, I decided to step inside and order a take-away dinner. My eyes and mind found the chicken tikka masala on the menu and with that I ordered a naan bread as well. Love the fact they wrapped my food so well, that it was... More

Sometimes while travelling, it is the unexpected pleasant surprise that makes up for all the travails that come with it. Shanti was one such unexpected surprise, After South Indian in Copenhagen, this was the second regional Indian restaurant in my travels across Scandinavia. I would expect to find them in London for sure, but not in the frigid cities of... More

After being totally turned off by several ho-hum Swedish buffets, we thought Shanti was a wonderful treat. We were there on a week night when the restaurant looked almost full, but our food came out quickly. Flavorful, well-presented and best red wine & English IPA we've had in weeks. Wait staff was attentive & friendly. Yes, the table was small,... More

Lots of menu choices, good quality food (but no chai!) Prices are moderate. An attractive interior. Service was very friendly, but slow and overburdened at peak dinner hour

Neighbourhood Profile
SoFo & Medborgarplatsen
Throughout the last decades these neighborhoods transformed from a rather quiet residential area into the birthplace of Swedish hipsterism and became Sweden’s main hub for new fashion labels, independent coffee shops and innovative gastropub concepts. Despite their extreme transformation, SoFo (South of Folkungagatan) & Medborgarplatsen managed to hold on to their residential charm and quietness and became one of the most sought-after places to live among young people in Stockholm. This neighborhood is also home to Sweden’s highest student hall, Skrapan, which used to be the head office of the tax authorities and now combines a mix of student hall and shopping mall with a bar on top.
