GREAT FOOD, GREAT Atmosphere – I love Indian food, having had difficulty in finding a good Indian restaurant in Boston, India Samraat sloved my problem when i discovered it 4 years back. I live in cambridge and travel all the way to Mass Ave to enjoy India Samraat food....Chiken Tikka is awesome, so is Biryani...i might have tried all their dishes in these years and everything tastes so good, not to tell of Naan and Samosa...Good food
traditional all the way – Every thing served here is tradtional. Not a fusion. The breads are baked in tradtional clay oven. The rice is basmati indian rice. The curries are most flavorful.
YUCK! Avoid this Indian!! – I never take the time to write reviews, but this place is absolutely the WORST Indian restaurant. AVOID IT! I ordered quite a few things and they not only tasted bad (stale/old) they made my roommate sick. After seeing hair I refused to eat any of it beyond my initial tasting, and was spared. My order consisted of naan, flat and soggy, chicken tandoori 4 pieces of chicken that (literally) tasted rubbery, and also a biryani with a nice piece of hair in it.
I was so shocked I called the restaurant. The phone was answered by a womyn, who then passed it to the "manager", who then passed it to "delivery man" - who has more of a say than the manager apparently. All in all, I was on the phone for about 15 minutes, explaining the situation to the three different people, at the end of which instead of apologizing or anything I was treat rudely and offered $3. (Note: the delivery fee is $3, food was about $33, and I tipped $5). I told them to keep the money--I couldn't get over how little regard they had for preserving customers. This must be one of those places that depends on Boston's constantly fresh student population. So don't be fooled! I really recommend for those who love food, or just want something decent for their money to avoid this place. There are some nice Indian restaurants in Boston, and while I don't mind spending money on good food this one isn't cheap (average plate is about $13 and includes no condiments; naan, by which I mean heated pita bread, is $2.95). Honestly, save your stomach and go else where! Absolutely NOT worth it. Yuck! :)
Not a Buffet – This place has good indian food, but unlike another reviewer said- no buffet. The place by berklee and McDonalds that has a buffet is called Bombay Cafe.
