  1. I’ve been going to India Quality since my Freshman year at BU. I absolutely love it. You just can’t beat the price, quality of food and service. It’s true about the water glasses too – which would get annoying at any other restaurant, but it is greatly appreciated when my mouth is burning and nose is dribbling from the spices (which is normal and good).

    As for the reviewer’s comment that the food came out mild, don’t hesitate to ask them to make it spicy. My fiancé loves spicy food and other Indian places don’t feel comfortable making it as spicy as he’d like. Not at India Quality! He asked them to make him cry and he was a waterworks for the rest of the dinner.

    More people need to try India Quality — Indian is my favorite cuisine because of this place!

    I also recommend that you go visit Fasika Ethiopian Restaurant up in Somerville! — if you do, can you bring me?

  2. “Nan” isn’t the Indian spelling; they spell it “naan.” Maybe it’s just a transliteration mistake, but it makes me think they’re not that authentic.

  3. I am a BU student originally from india. Don’t mean to burst your bubble, but india quality is far from authentic. It is the WORST indian food I have ever had.

  4. love this place but students better watch the time and not come a little too late for lunch cuz their dinner prices hike up for a lesser quantity of food.

  5. The food is good, not great like Mantra downtown. Also, the restaurant could be cleaner inside. I’ve had dust and bugs on my glasses and straws on the two times I’ve dined in.

  6. I agree with a previous comment on the authenticity of food at India Quality. The food is anything but Indian.

    Everyone who likes the food at India Quality needs to go to other Indian restaurants in Boston. There are a couple near West Campus.

  7. With all respect, for every Indian restaurant in Boston, there are Indians who proclaim it’s the worst Indian food they’ve ever had and far from authentic. It may not be perfect North Indian food, but it’s a great place nevertheless. Of all the Boston Indian restaurants I’ve been to (Bombay, Tantric, Bhindi, all of the Cafe of Indias, and many others), IQ (and its sister restaurant Punjab Palace in Allston) are among the best.

  8. There’s a problem when India Quality’s Butter Chicken tastes like their Chicken Korma. The food is bland, even when spicy. It ends up just tasting like “hot”. It tastes like Trader Joe’s Indian food…it’s pathetic.
    Go to Kashmir on Newbury if you want good Northern Indian food.

  9. I personally love IQ’s food. There’s a reason why its been around since before most of us were born. The food is great! If anyone is curious what gets put into the food, why not just ask the staff or the cooks? Maybe they’ll let you observe how its made and you can assess the authenticity. Assuming..of course…you even know how to cook authentic Indian food. I always am curious as to what individuals mean by “authentic”. If they are comparing the food to their mother’s cooking, i’m sorry to say but only their mom’s cooking is going to live up to their standards.
    Also–for anyone who ever has an issue with any restaurant’s cooking or cleanliness its a good idea for you to go to the management and let them know.

  10. I’ve eaten at every Indian restaurant in the city (and many in the metro area) and IQ is among the best I’ve had. Those comparing it to “authentic” food, saying they’re from India and claiming it’s horrible are probably from a different area of India with a much different spice standard. India has so many different cuisines and so many personal family recipes.

    And I am from India. It’s very, very good.

  11. the food here is not authetic and not cheap at all. There are many other cheaper and more authetic Indian food options in the city. In fact, India Quality is one of the more expensive places.

  12. India Quality is not authentic and not cheap at all! There are many other cheaper and more authentic Indian options around the city. In fact, India quality is one of the more expensive places.
