Good food and helpful staff. Korma and jalfreze both very tasty and also a good range of others. Fair range of drinks all at a reasonable price.

I visited this restaurant with family on a very good October weekend. I had the shrimp tikka masala, which was very good, and the service was also very good. The music was nice and quiet, and did not interfere with chitchat. Overall very good value.

We ate several times at Spice Root and enjoyed our meals each time. Spice levels are moderate. Owner is friendly. My husband liked the chicken masala!

Best Chicken Korma I've ever had, and their mango lassis are AMAZING. They also offer a lunch buffet that is affordable and excellent.

I googled best restaurants and this one did not come up for me. At the same time, without me knowing my sister was doing the same thing and Spice Root did come up. It was delicious and the service was wonderful. I'm so glad we...More
