I usually am not a big fan of Indian food (too spicy!), but the limited choices in W'town convinced me to peruse the menu. Seemed to have some unique preparations in addition to the usual fare, so we gave it a try. Didn't disappoint. Will...More

I love that they don't hold back on the flavors at this restaurant. And if you ask for hot, expect HOT. I like the Jalfreezi and my daughter's a fan of the tikka masala and korma. The garlic-cilantro naan is also a hit. Great atmosphere...More

I have been to this restaurant several times, and each time the buffet is up to the same high quality and standard as it was on my previous visit. There is variety and the food is delicious, especially the chicken curries.

We have usually ordered off the menu and been totally pleased with the results. It has been several years and we had ususally been there for dinner. Our waiter encouraged the buffet on this mid week lunch visit. We reluctantly agreed, but were very satisfied...More

While other restaurants can take a lesson from Spice Root for service and courtesy, the food didn't move me. There were four of us for dinner and we each ordered something different with the aim of sharing. Well, three of those dishes arrived Exactly the...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.
