Visited for the lunch buffet Thursday February 19th, and I am a person who really appreciates a middle eastern buffet. For example, I often go to The Curry House on Madison Avenue in Albany New York. Although the Spice Root restaurant was physically quite a bit larger than the Curry house, it's buffet table was not even 1/2 as large.... More

We recently spent 3 nights in Williamstown, a return visit. We had dinner at Spice Root because we enjoyed it so much the last time we visited Williamstown. The food was as good as I remembered and the staff very friendly.

I had Ragara Patties as a starter, lightly spiced with Tamarind, as a Main I had the aloo baingan, good flavours of coriander coming through. I shared a malai kofta, this was a lovely rich almond sauce, the vegetable dumplings were flavoursome but could have been lighter. I tried the bullet naan, and whilst I was disappointed that it lacked... More

Great Indian meal - plenty of flavor and spice (reminiscent of Indian restaurants in England). Also, great selection of vegetarian options. Thoroughly recommend.

My wife and I dined on the Chef Special "lamb chops" and Lamb Korma tonight in this delightful Mumbai themed family restaurant. The lamb was extraordinarily tender following 24 hours plus of marinating with spices. Although the lamb with the Korma was not as tender as the lamb chops, the Korma sauce was great. The special surprise was gratis rice... More

Unusual to find an Indian restaurant in the USA which serves food that we love in the UK. Nice to find papads, bhajis, jalfrezi on the menu. Very tasty and reasonably-priced.

So I eat curry at home in the Uk quite often and I was considerable more than pleasantly surprised when I ate at the Spice Root. It was truly brilliant. I can wholeheartedly recommend the 'bullet naan' a first for me. Not so sure about the poppadums, different to my normal but the jalfrezi and all the other curries were... More
