This restaurant was so good last year when we visited Williamstown MA that I wanted to go back again this year. Try the Spice Root Samosa Chaat for starters. It was delicious!

We have eaten here whenever we visit Williamstown. The food is very flavorful and not very spicy. Chilli paste is available upon request. The buffet has vegetarian and non-vegetarian items. The restaurant is clean , bright and tastefully decorated in an Indian motif. The staff is friendly and generally knowledgeable about ingredients. I did not give it 5 stars because... More

Between the Clark Art Institute and a play, I stopped for lunch. Great folks and food. Lamb Samoa and shrimp kebab with a beer. Wonderful. Everything was fresh and delicious.

When in Williamstown this is a popular destination for above average Indian food. Usually we go for the terrific and affordable lunch buffet. It's best to get there at noon. When dishes run out they are not always refreshed. It's also popular for dinner and always mobbed on weekends.

This restaurant serves up authentic Indian food in a comfortable environment. Service is attentive and the food arrived promptly. We love Indian food and enjoyed sharing several dishes. We would go back if we are ever in Williamstown again.

Spice Root is our regular choice for dinner. We love the food and the people who work there and own the restaurant. My husband chooses vegetarian dishes and I love curries.

We stopped in for the lunch buffet so I can't speak for their regular menu. I love tandoori chicken but what they served was mostly bone with very little over cooked meat on it. The naan bread was also so dried out that I could hardly pull pieces off of it. The other dishes had variations on different curry sauces... More

Located in a college town. Went for lunch buffet but was surprised when chicken tikka masala was not on it, so I ordered it as an entrée while the rest of the family had the buffet (had to hunt the waiter down to do this). Buffet was rather small and stuck in a corner. Food tasted good, like I have... More

You can't go wrong with Spice Root's house-recipe entree sauce--we had it with lamb and it was just the right medium-hot as advertised. Delicious veggie fritters to start and aromatic garlic naan too. Owners are extremely attentive and personable. A great meal with great service--we'll go back for sure!
