Here's what people say after redeeming their Nift gift.
Wonderful atmosphere and wonderful food, definitely great for any kind of dinner plan!
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.
Neighborhood favorite— we visit often.
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??
Service was slow but food was great as always
Friendly service. Delicious meal. Will happily go back!
Great Indian food.
Great service and lovely atmosphere
Great service, exceptional fare
The food is always amazing here! Definitely a favorite food spot in Jamaica Plain. Worthy every penny.
Best restaurant in JP!!!
Great food! The staff at Bukhara made it easy to use the Nift gift card.
Great food! Loved the murg vindaloo and the mango juice tasted like this juiced a fresh mango just for me.
Breast Indian food around!
Delicious and relaxing setting! Tandoori salmon was a smoke-flavored treat.
Great food, good recommendations from servers!
The food was excellent and the atmosphere very comfortable. I will definitely return!
Food was delicious!
Really great food!
delicious and a great atmosphere!
the food was well prepared, delicious and beautifully presented. The service was good.
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!
The food and service were great. The booths are not very comfortable - maybe time for an upgrade?
Good service, tasty food and reasonable prices.
We really enjoyed the vegetarian entrees The atmosphere is beautiful and quiet enough for a dinner conversation.
Great Indian food in JP! Convenient parking lot behind restaurant.
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.
Amazing buffet spread, homey atmosphere, and warm, colorful decor!
Bukhara is a great restaurant. The food is delicious and service is great.
Amazing service- the people who work there are great. Food is delicious!
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.
Great food. Wish they'd pack all (and not just part of) the leftovers to go...
Great food for a decent price. And not super crowded on a Sunday evening either!
I love Bukhara. My favorite Indian restaurant. There's so much food I always leave with half the meal
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.
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.
Bukhara is my favorite Indian restaurant in Boston!
Delicious dinner and a warm atmosphere!
Food is always great!
Really enjoyed lunch there. Would have been great if the gift certificate was useable for the buffet.
Good food, but experienced very slow service.
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!
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!
Loved the dhosa, which was more than enough for me and my lunch-mate! Thanks for a delicious meal.
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!
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.
Been ordering delivery from here for years! Great place
We LOVED the weekend brunch buffet!
It was a great opportunity to expand places to eat. I may not have eaten there if not for nift. Now that I have I will eat there again.
I rate the service excellent
It was yummy!!
great food. thanks
Great food, great service
The food was delicious and the garlic Naan was great.😊😊
Great Indian food. Nice atmosphere. I give it a 5 (number selection below didn't work),
Great speedy and friendly service. The meal was great but the chicken in the mixed tandoori was a little dry
Always a fan!
Delicious food. Good menu choices
We had the vegetarian dinner for two. Everything was very yummy and service was fast!
The lunch buffet is tasty as well as generous, with several meat and vegetarian choices. Beyond the usual fare there's fresh salad, fresh fruit and masala tea. Bukhara is a cozy, neighborhood favorite with friendly service at a reasonable price.
thank you! yummy!
Great place for Indian food!
Great service and great food!
Great food and beautiful atmosphere! Never have a bad experience here.
Tasty Indian food!
We loved Bukhara. We've ordered take out before but never been to the restaurant. It was nice to find a place that was very friendly with our toddler and the food was delicious. Good to find another local place to go as a family!
staff was pleasant and accommodating, food was very good
The food was pretty good. The menu offered a wide range of great options. I'm glad I came to JP for this!

Food was the best it has ever been! They have a new cheft it was AWESOME!
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.
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.
Nice place good food.
Great food and service and nice atmosphere.
Treated me like royalty
The food was delicious.
Bukhara offers excellent food in an extremely pleasant environment. It is one of my favorite restaurants and I highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys Indian food.
The food was very tasty
Great food, but also really exceptional service
Bukhara - great food! Always recommend!
This is great place, especially for brunch buffet on Saturday. The dosas are wonderful
The food was very flavorful. I enjoyed the level of "heat" spice they used when I told them I wanted the Chicken Tikki Masala extra, extra hot.
What a varied and delicious buffett! So many wonderful choices!
Always tasty, we've been enjoying Bukhara for years.
Wonderfull meal and delicious complimentary drink with Sangria .
