The word "Shanti" means peace in Sanskrit. Shanti hopes to transport its guests to a more peaceful place with both the ambiance and the cuisine. At Shanti diners will find more than Indian cuisine, where they can also indulge in Bangladeshi style cooking known as Bhuna. All three locations offer a wide variety of vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options. Shanti is located at 1111 Dorchester Ave. in Dorchester, MA, at 4197 Washington St., in Roslindale, MA, and at 7 Broad Canal Way in Cambridge, MA.
