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.

Right on route 20 in Sudbury but extremely small so you better call ahead. The owners are always there and you'll get a personal treatment. We went with a person who had some allergies and they were very accommodating. The food is quite spicy so make sure you tell them to tone it down if you can't handle it.

Paani is a wonderful Indian restaurant. The food is always great (Lamb Rogan Josh is one of my favorites), and the owners are always friendly and very hospitable. I highly recommend Paani to anyone looking for excellent Indian cuisine. I have never had an entre at Paani that I did not thoroughly enjoy.

This place is a must to go to. Try the naan studded with cashew, coconut and raisins. Wow! The tandoori chicken was delicious too and the baby eggplant curry was out of this world.

Paani is small cozy Indian restaurant with a nice ambience and great food. It is a pleasant sit down place with cloth napkins and no buffet. Service was helpful and courteous. Two friends and I recently had lunch there and enjoyed the "Thai Plate" which includes an appetizer, choice of two dishes plus the Dal of the Day, basmati rice,... More

We've been here dozens of time, and had almost all of the menu at one time or another. Uniformly excellent for both lunch and dinner, Paani is the best Indian restaurant in the area, and one of the best restaurants of any kind. The food is fresh and wonderfully seasoned, the service is warm and friendly. For those new to... More
