After visiting Williams College decided to have dinner before heading back home to Boston. Wow! It was one of the worst Indian restaurant we've been to. Before ordering the waiter placed stale crackers on the table with watery ketchup for dipping. Ordered chicken tikka masala and dal. The chicken tika masala sauce again tasted like ketchup with no flavor. Dal... 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 and impressed with the freshness and healthy options available expecially since it was almost 2PM... More

If you like Indian food and spice stop here for a lunch or a brunch. Aldought it has both a buffet and a menu, buffet is better choice. Ussualy there is 5-6 main dishes, 2-3 salads and 2-3 kind of desserts. Beverades are not included. Very clean, taste good and servis is OK.

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 Same. So much for variety. The appetizers were fun, but the main dish was disappointing.

We were glad to find this Indian restaurant (with some good vegetarian choices) open and serving somewhat later than other establishments--cafes closing early in this small college town, surprisingly, we thought. It has a full bar and range of interesting and tasty entree choices. A good place to eat in Williamstown.

This very popular Indian restaurant serves traditional Indian cuisine adapted to an American taste. Good mix of customers including students. Prices very reasonable but quality excellent.

While on a trip to the Clark, we stopped here for lunch. It has both a buffet and a menu. Since we were wanting to quick lunch we did the buffet. Lots of choice and delicious food. If we lived in the area we would definitely be back.

Although the service was a bit inattentive, the food was good and reasonably priced. The menu is broad and there are many healthy options.

Excellent meal and service and the proprietor is a really nice guy. When he heard we had walked there he offered to give all six of us a ride back to the hotel. Mind you there was only a bicycle out front so it would have taken some time
