A friend had suggested this and though a half hour drive from Bennington, we tried it. Wonderful meal, especially the soup with chicken....very spicy but fantastic. All the dishes were terrific and would highly recommend it, especially before a movie in town.

We had a late Valentine ‘s dinner, and enjoyed trying new dishes. The large samosa seemed salty to us (we don’t typically use much) but good, and our other choices for dinner were mildly seasoned. Both were vegetarian and were nice balances of varied vegetables...More

A really pleasant restaurant. Great dhal mahkani but the veggie vindaloo not hot enough for this London based curry lover. And the papadoms need to be flat not rolled up, but good tasty food.

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.
