Restaurant Review - Kashmir Restaurant

Chitra Parayath

The mere mention of spices used in Indian recipes, cardamom, cumin, coriander, cloves, fennel seed and turmeric, to name a few makes one salivate and the combined flavors can transport one to throes of culinary ecstasy! A visit to the Kashmir Restaurant on Newbury Street did entice this reporter and friend with tantalizing smells and an elegant décor. Creating layers of zesty and rich flavor, this Indian restaurant is dedicated to serving quality food and service to the Boston area. Kashmir has been voted "Best of Boston" several times.

Sitting out on the patio on a pleasant spring afternoon, ogling the natives and munching on delicious Naans and curries, we were looked after solicitously by two waiters who came over to our table every few minutes refreshing our plates and glasses. The average entrée at Kashmir costs between $12 to $20 and the dress is casual. Menu choices include naans and onion kulchas, mixed vegetable curries, chicken and lamb tandoori, swordfish masala, and meats and seafood. Kashmir has a full bar with Indian and foreign beers and a good choice of white and red wines.

The buffet is sumptuous in its choice of North Indian delicacies — meat, vegetarian, salad, desserts, etc. Visitors enjoy an all-you-can-eat feast, with tender tandoori chicken plus several rotating dishes, such as daal (lentils); battered and deep-fried vegetables, also known as pakora, samosas, vegetarian entrees; curries; and flavored basmati rice. Green salad and the cardamom-laced rice pudding called kheer also come with the lunch buffet. While ordering off the menu, one has the option to choose the ‘ heat factor’ and the chefs cater to your tongue. We found after a particularly hot vegetable curry that the best way to cool the palate after sampling some of the fierier ware is with a tall glass of Mando Lassi the thick, creamy, cooling drink.
We left the restaurant feeling full but hope to return soon.

Kashmir Restaurant is part of the One World Cuisine group that owns various upscale Indian restaurants in the Boston area such as, Mantra, Diva, Indian Bistro, Kebab Factory, Café of India, Bukhara and Hartwell House in Lexington.
