Delicious and convenient.

Wide selection of choices, even if you are unfamiliar with the cuisine. The location is convenient to Williamstown Theater Festival.

We had a very satisfying dinner at Spice Root. The preparation and the quality of the ingredients were very good. The lamb in my husband's biriyani was plentiful and very tender. I had a side dish of rice stir fried with vegetables. The dish was very large, it was filled with vegetables that were cooked so they maintained their crunch.... More

On our way up to nearby Bennington my wife and I decided to stop at the Spice Root. We had heard good things from other reviews, and were not disappointed. We stopped on a Saturday afternoon for the lunch buffet, and had a wonderful meal. We love Indian food, and have had good, and bad. This was very good as... More

Went there on a Sunday night and the service was really rude and unfriendly. Nevertheless, the food was great. I had the chicken tikka massala with rice and a nan, it was very tasty. Prices are a bit high for Indian food.

We were unsure about going to this restaurant, but then a man passing by told us it is quite good. And indeed the food, presentation, and surroundings are excellent. A surprise in this college town: Williamstown,MA. Also it is not exorbitantly priced.

We had an absolutely delicious meal tonight. Very flavorful. I had the salmon masala, which has an incredible flavorful, nonspicy creamy tomato sauce. My wife had the mango chicken, which was equally flavorful but spicy. The garlic and cilantro nan was awesome. The service was polite and efficient. All this at a very reasonable price.

This was our second or third visit for lunch and we have visited once for dinner. The lunch buffet was great, 2 chicken dishes, 3 vegetarian choices, hot, tasty naan, tandori chicken , several condiments, 2 salads and 2 dessert choices. Who would require anything more? Wait staff was pleasant and attentive. We try to eat here whenever we are... More

Very nice food, in a very nice restaurant. I recently heard a couple coming out of Spice Root, and the husband said that he was very pleased. He said it was an extremely satisfying meal. He just couldn't stop talking to his partner about it!

If you stay at the Williamstown Motel, you get 10% off at this restaurant. Indian food makes a nice taste change when one is traveling, so I recommend this restaurant for that reason. However, the food is just average. The spinach soup tasted like dishwater and I did not finish it. The Malai Kofta was strangely sweet with a cream... More
