Every time we come to Mass MoCA, we come to Spice Root, and sometimes more than once! The family that runs it are soooo friendly and the food is as good if not better than any Indian food in Boston. Fast, hot, fresh, flavorful. We...More

Don't be fooled by the rather dingy surroundings. Gorgeous food is to be found inside. Just so many flavours on one plate! Was really busy when we arrived. Which is always a good sign. Really unusual menu. Somehing for everyone.

Good selection of curries, including some house specialities and some more unusual sauces. Slick, attentive service and good atmosphere. Recommended.

The food was very good Indian food, with good service. We had food from the regular menu, all was very good. It's not exceptional, but worth trying if you are in the mood.

There were six of us and we all enjoyed our dishes as well as sharing a number of appetizers. The food is good, fresh and tasteful. One of us needs gluten free, another doesn't eat beef or lamb. There were plenty of choices for both...More

Sorry, can't help - I don't notice the non-gluten stuff and their menu doesn't indicate non-gluten foods. You'ld have to ask them direct at one of their franchises.
