Great delicious food! It's made fresh and everything tasted great! The owners do what they can to get you seated but it's a small space and it's usually packed. Best to make reservations if you can. I love their spices and their chicken is all white meat (although I prefer dark meat actually.)

My wife and I have eaten for lunch and dinner a few times. The food is very good; i have been in India a few times and i think the food is authentic. Love their mango lassi; great bargain place for lunch.

It's quite a trek out from Boston, and we hadn't been here in almost a year. The trek was worth it. Really wonderful food, the best Indian food I have in Massachusetts. Quite full, I was still intrigued by the mango desert -- really unique and superb. Can't wait for the next trek out.

I went to this place at 5pm. I was not too hungry and was only interested in snacks. I ordered a vegetable platter. After waiting a while, they told me that this is dinner time and they cannot serve only snacks but I have to mandotarily order for dinner as well. So, I had to come out of that place.... More

At first I had mourned the closing of Mother India in Waltham, not knowing where to get decent Indian food. Well...move over Mother...here's Paani in Sudbury. This very cozy restaurant saturated in mango and saffron colors, has a wide variety of dishes to please both vegetarians and meat-friends alike. The luscious thick korma sauces were as incredible as the tender... More

A must visit, if in area. The food is top notch and you can tell it's prepared with love. A very homely atmosphere. Don't miss out on this one.

Everything was delicious. Chicken vindaloo was spicy hot with a hint of curry. Kabob platter appetizer was enough for a meal. This is my fourth time here and now I try to come back every time I'm in town.

Love Paani! I love that their lunch is NOT a buffet, you select two entree items out of about 25. Since it starts with a delicious soup and salad, comes with a choice of pakora or Chicken tandori, rice dahl and naan on top of your choices, come hunger or be prepared to take some home. The owner Vimi is... More

The last time I reviewed Paani was three years ago, so I thought it was time to provide a more up-to-date set of comments. However, everything I said back then is still completely accurate. We have been to the restaurant several times since I wrote the original review and the food quality is still outstanding, as noted by the other... More

This is far the best Indian food I've ever had. Great selection, always fresh, and the owner always goes out of her way to make your visit perfect.
