2016 Winner: Shanti

“Shanti” means “peace,” and nirvana feels within fork’s reach at these restaurants bringing subcontinent cuisine to three corners of town, including a recently opened location by Kendall Square. Devotees gather to break bread—or rather, naan—and blissfully surrender to vibrantly spiced kebabs and spirited sauces of tandoori specialties slow-marinated in clay pots. It’s transportive mid-priced fare in nice little digs equally appropriate for date night and takeout-for-one.
