Here's what people say after redeeming their Nift gift.

Went with 7 others and everything was excellent

Heather, December 28, 2018

The food and service were great! It was nice to have a coupons so I could try something new on the menu without worrying about the cost. Thanks Nift!

Kristen Michelle, December 17, 2018

Wonderful atmosphere and wonderful food, definitely great for any kind of dinner plan!

Nrusimha, October 23, 2018

great place

Miranda, October 11, 2018

The food was delicious, however, the service left a lot to be desired. Although I had had a new waiter, the naan that was part of my order was forgotten and I had to tell them that it was missing. I then had to track down the waiter...AND the food took quite a while to come out. That being said, I would still go again because the food was delicious. Maybe I'll go a little earlier in the day when they have higher volume of patrons and higher volume of waiters...instead of latenight.

Great food!!

Maretta, October 7, 2018

Neighborhood favorite— we visit often.

Scott, August 5, 2018

We always enjoy going to Bukhara. However, the service was much better and friendly atmosphere a few years ago. And, their spiciness is never consistent. They always ask how spicy we want, but it never comes out the way we expect. I asked "medium" and it was "no heat". My husband asked "hot" and almost "no heat" at all. If they can't adjust how spicy it gets, why do they ask??

Yoko, August 4, 2018

Jhennipher, May 27, 2018

Breast Indian food around!

Ola, February 17, 2018

the food was well prepared, delicious and beautifully presented. The service was good.

Ora, January 24, 2018

Food was great. Hearty servings, enough for me to take home leftovers! All of the meat was well seasoned and not dry at all! Perfectly cooked. As was the naan. The level of spiciness are true to advertised—which I appreciated. Service was a little slow, bu maybe because it was a slow night (only three tables) and towards the end of the evening. Will definitely return!

Dominique, January 19, 2018

The food and service were great. The booths are not very comfortable - maybe time for an upgrade?

Deborah, December 29, 2017

Great Indian food in JP! Convenient parking lot behind restaurant.

Ajit, December 21, 2017

We got a mix of vegetarian and meat dishes, all of them were amazing. The lamb dish we got was especially delicious. Server was attentive and nice. Will definitely be back.

Claire, December 19, 2017

Jim, December 5, 2017

Amazing service- the people who work there are great. Food is delicious!

Kate, December 4, 2017

The food and menu variety was decent. I really liked all the vegetarian and vegan options. I was disappointed by the service, as service was slow and it took about 30 minutes to get our entrees.

Vigny, December 3, 2017

Great food. Wish they'd pack all (and not just part of) the leftovers to go...

Christopher, December 2, 2017

Great food for a decent price. And not super crowded on a Sunday evening either!

Deanna, November 26, 2017

I love Bukhara. My favorite Indian restaurant. There's so much food I always leave with half the meal

Marguerite, November 20, 2017

We were disappointed in the table we were given--near the television and opposite the kitchen, but service was good, the menu was extensive, and portions generous.

Rita, November 19, 2017

The food was delicious and very filling as we got the dinner for two. For the money, it's quite excellent. Could've done with faster service, but we had the time, so we didn't mind.

Jules, November 12, 2017

Bukhara is my favorite Indian restaurant in Boston!

Liz, November 6, 2017

Delicious dinner and a warm atmosphere!

Erin, October 28, 2017

Food is always great!

Kathryn, October 27, 2017

Really enjoyed lunch there. Would have been great if the gift certificate was useable for the buffet.

Kelsa, October 20, 2017

Good food, but experienced very slow service.

Yvonne, September 29, 2017

Bukhara has a lovely atmosphere and is a great charm on Centre St. I ordered the Dinner for One special for $25 with the Lamb Shank Curry as my entree and Carrot Cake as my dessert. The tandoori meats were a little bit dry, but the chutneys that they provide really sparked it up. Lamb shank was incredible -- falling-off-the-bone tender and great onion/garlic flavor in the curry. Carrot cake did not have an appetizing presentation but tasted great. Overall - would come again to try other dishes!

Joshua, September 22, 2017

I had to do a few corrections with our service, unfortunately--our pankoras came under-heated and cold, and I ordered a mango lassi that never came. The rest of the food though was really good, and the service was still very friendly. Prices were reasonable, and the special for two was an amazing deal, especially with the Nift!

Mitsy, September 17, 2017

Loved the dhosa, which was more than enough for me and my lunch-mate! Thanks for a delicious meal.

Andrew, September 17, 2017

I thought the appetizer sample would have two of each kind for easy sharing but it only had one which was slightly disappointing but doable. We both really enjoyed our entrees though!

Courtney, September 7, 2017

Paneer pakoras, garlic naan and chicken tikka masala were all very good, saag paneer was really bland in spite of ordering it spicy. Service was good.

Cher, September 1, 2017

Been ordering delivery from here for years! Great place

Bil, August 30, 2017

We LOVED the weekend brunch buffet!

This is a great local Indian spot I already go to, but the cashier acted like he didn't know how to process the gift certificate. He gave me the credit though.

Alex, April 4, 2017

Your javascript below seems busted.

Matt, March 30, 2017

Food is good. A little on the mild side. I'd prefer to have a bit more spice to at least some of the dishes. There was a nice man cooking dosas who engaged my kids and convinced my picky kid to try one, and she actually enjoyed it. We'll go back.

Philippa, March 26, 2017
