Can't say enough about the variety, flavors and good value this place offers for a delicious all-you-can-eat lunch buffet. They recently opened a made to order Dosa bar as well. Something for everyone at Spice Route and easy, free parking.

So love this restaurant! One of the best Southern India places in the area. The buffet has freshly made Dosas on Sundays and tons of vegetarian choices! This buffet is so clean and all the food very fresh! Sambar and chutneys are superb :)

Pretty good buffet for lunch. They have some unusual dishes such as dosas which I don't see at other Indian restaurants. I was crowded with Indian people so it must be pretty good.

Booked through Open Table. Upon reaching there the host did not honor the booking saying that they 'do not use open table'. We were also refused seating in an half empty place and were told that they were 'booked out' due to Diwali (Hindu New Year)

The veggie byriani and their naan are great. Be prepared to have a serving big enough for dinner and the following day's lunch.

I don't understand much about Indian cousine but I just loved Spice Route and it flavors. I highly recommend it.

Very popular for its lunch buffet.Several dishes tasted very authentic, especially the South Indian Vegetarian ones. The masala dosa was made fresh at the counter was exceptional - hadnt tasted something as good in the US for a long time. I would rate this place as excellent

Great restaurant for lunch or dinner. Excellent service. Their dosas are crispy and tasty. During lunch buffet, they are made in front of the customer. The accompaniments (sambar, rasam and chutneys) are really good. Best restaurant in Seattle metro for Indian food

Thank Deiva M
