Opened today.

I've had quick service Indian in New York but this is the first place I've seen in the Boston area.

Stopped by at 6 tonight and had an Aloo Masala Roll and a Tofu and Mushroom Paneer.
Friendly service and friendly prices.
The mango lassi drink was super creamy
They have vegetarian options - chicken - lamb and much more.

I'll be back

    Good to know.

    Re quick service indian there used to be two (unrelated to each other) places in the food courts of the "corner mall" at downtown crossing, and in the Pru food court. both were, okay.

    Looking forward to trying Chutney's.

      Another OK one is Gourmet India in the food court of Burlington Mall.
      It is certainly better than most of the other food court options, which is all it needs to be in that location.

          call me crazy but where would anyone want to be on a great summer weekend?
          The Burlington Mall the Square one Mall or Harvard Square?

          Harvard Square is the correct answer

          Happy 4th to all

                Harvard Square 20 years ago.

          That's nice, hopefully the rice is good, which is always the problem with Indian fast food.

          Gourmet Inda is pretty good, the weekend dosas look great, haven't tried. Mango pickles are complementary there I believe upon request, when I've asked in the Pru, Burlington and Natick locations.

            Weekend dosas at the Pru-foodcourt-place were very good, as of a few years ago (the last time I was there). A very pleasant surprise for me.

            Does anyone know the hours? I have a feeling it won't be open as late as I hope. Can someone can prove me wrong?

              I tried going there on July 4th, but they were closed at 11:45p.

                They boast of their midnight closing time most nights:

                I went today and it was very good. I had the chili chicken in naan. Lots of fresh veggies and nice spicy chutney. A very inexpensive lunch and one was just enough for me for lunch.

                The menu looks nice, except that I am not quite sure what to make of the steak and cheese stir fry...

                  I thought that was bizarre too. I assume it's cooked on the same grill surface?

                    Something was taped over on the menu when I was there on Friday -- perhaps it was that!

                      steak & cheese is off the menu
                      beef on an Indian menu is a oxymoron..yes?
                      Big lunch croud today. Just wait until the students are back in town

                        Not necessarily an oxymoron, with 160 million (non beef-avoiding) Muslims in India... just unusual to see in non-Halal Indian restaurants.

                  I just went there for a quick lunch bite and really enjoyed it! Very reasonable prices (5.00 for a perfectly lunch sized roll/sandwich), and is nice new addition to my Harvard Sq lunch rotation. I thought the bread (masala roti) was particularly yummy.

                    We stopped by there for dinner on Friday. It's kinda like Subway i.e you select the roll and the main thing which goes in it ( like Aloo Masala or Chutney Paneer ) and select a combination of chutneys ( indian sauces ) and accompaniments like onions, tomatoes, cilantro etc.

                    My Aloo Masala roll was a bit dry but I was at fault because I didn't put enough chutneys in it. But apart from that it's an excellent option for the price. The Chutney Paneer roll was ridiculously tasty.

                    Great food for the price.
