My second time here was even better than the first. It's very welcoming and comfortable, good service and very good food.

The chicken jalfrezi was very average. Portion was slightly on the small side and was not very spicy (medium) or tasty. The naan breads were thin and nothing to write home about. Order was 15 minutes later than expected. I won't be ordering again.

Thank Jamie S
Pammi S, Owner at India Quality Restaurant, responded to this review

I'm sorry to hear the jalfrezi didn't make a better impression, Jamie. While spiciness can be fairly relative, we're always willing to kick it up a notch when requested. That said, I'm confident there's plenty on our menu that would be perfect for you, and I hope you'll give us another chance to show you what we can do. Best,... More

I had the pleasure of dining here with a couple of friends one of whom has visited many times. While the cuisine is distinctly Northern Inadian, they have a wide range of tastes and dishes to choose from. The ambience was warm and welcoming on a cold night. The music was at a thankfully low volume which made conversation easy... More

Sounds like you guys really had a chance to explore the menu, and I'm thrilled to know that everything from the pakoras and samosas to the Baingan Bharta hit the spot! Thanks so much for dining with us, and I hope we'll have the chance to serve you again soon. All the best, Pammi S., Owner More

After a day exploring Boston, we were in the mood for Indian and after a thorough online search, India Quality was the obvious choice. They don't take reservations for groups smaller than 6, but this being the middle of winter, we took a chance and getting a table was a breeze. For the first time in the US, I found... More

We have been coming for some time, and will return when we have an event in the area. Definitely satisfactory, if you're craving Northern Indian / Tandoori. Mixed appetizer platters are nice, service is good, price point is reasonable considering the location.

Thank Gamberioni
Pammi S, Owner at India Quality Restaurant, responded to this review

Thank you for visiting us so often when you're in the area! I'm glad our authentic Northern Indian cuisine has made such an impression on you, and I can't wait for the next event that brings you by. Until then, Pammi S., Owner More

Service prompt but minimal. Food ok. Chicken was tender. Waiters silently stood around or paced the aisle. Wasn't offered a refill on my tea. Probably will not return.

Thank lmh113
Pammi S, Owner at India Quality Restaurant, responded to this review

We have high standards for both our food and service so I'm sorry to hear you weren't more impressed. It goes without saying, but the service should be friendly and attentive, and that means your tea should stay full. Additionally, the food should be delicious, so I hope next time we can show you that. All the best, Pammi S.,... More

Let me begin by saying that I hardly ever leave negative reviews anywhere. I'm currently undecided whether this place gets a 3 or 2 star rating. We were a party of 5; Genial and Jovial. We all have extensive experience of Indian restaurants in the US and the UK. Location of restaurant is good, layout is good too. The greeting... More

So, the important thing is: this isn't a hip new modern foodie kind of joint, and I expect it's probably not perfectly authentic street food, either. It is, though, the typical American take on north Indian cuisine done very, very well. You'll find all the traditional curries, from korma to chicken tikka masala to vindaloo, and each of them amazing.... More

We probably over-ordered but were very glad we did. Each item was better than the last. Sorry no specifics as my Boston local sister ordered for us, but I doubt one can go wrong here.

Neighbourhood Profile
Fenway / Kenmore
The Curse of the Bambino may have ended years ago, but loyal Red Sox fans will continue to infiltrate this home to historic Fenway Park, where you can find victory banners, people yelling in stereotypical Boston accents, and lots of sports bars. Located within Kenmore Square, the old gas station Citgo sign is another Boston skyline classic seen throughout the city. In addition to a hectic and diehard sports mentality, this neighborhood is also home to some of Boston’s many universities. Move from Boston University territory to that of Northeastern, and spend time at the famous Museum of Fine Arts. For more culture, check out the smaller but equally beautiful Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. Continue off the beaten path and check out the green space in the Back Bay Fens, a pretty community garden. This diverse neighborhood has a mix of universities, sports, culture, and more residential green space.
