Shanti Is Opening in Cambridge's Kendall Square

The people behind a pair of Indian restaurants in Boston are opening a third, with this one being located across the river.

According to a License Commission General Hearing page within the City of Cambridge website, Shanti is planning to open in the Kendall Square section of Cambridge, applying for a beer and wine license for a space on Kendall Street. If approved, the new dining spot will join two others in Dorchester and Roslindale and would be open for lunch and dinner seven days a week, with seating for 50 inside and a patio with a capacity of 24 outside during the warmer months.

[February 23, 2016 update: Eater Boston states that the new location of Shanti in Kendall Square opens today.]

The original location of Shanti in Dorchester's Savin Hill neighborhood is a spot that our sister site (Boston's Hidden Restaurants) has featured as an under-the-radar place to go to for Indian food. A review of it can be found below:

The address for this new Indian restaurant in Kendall Square is: Shanti, 250 Kendall Street, Cambridge, MA, 02142. The website for the dining spots can be found at
