Left me a bit cold. The food itself was not steam-table hot. The spices were very mild, the chai tea bland, the vegetables from frozen, and some of the dishes were dried-out. The salad ingredients were anemic and without nutritional value. Though the staff was...More

My family goes out of their way to drive up to Williamstown for this Indian food. The sauces are all different, all delicious. The herbs and spires are "just right".

Everything was amazing! After days of hiker food this place was a welcomed all you can eat establishment! The naan was fresh and the carrot entree was amazing. I would definitely eat there again!

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.
