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!

Along with the usual suspects: masala, vindaloo, sagwala (all of which are very good), they have a great selection of unusual dishes. The food is very, very good. Each time I return I get something new to me, and I have yet to be disappointed. Service is very friendly, though I typically order take out. Prices are above average, but... More

We had the buffet lunch and the selection was not great. The chicken tika masala was very sweet and only had dry chicken breast meat. The sage paneer turned out to be chicken also. The dal was a bit watery. However I liked the mushroom and the tandoori chicken.
