A picture is worth a thousand words...the flowers are carved from carrot, cucumber and potato. The service was both quick and friendly. Many vegetarian options. More affordable than expected for such a delicious dinner. ( 4 people, 2 shared desserts, under $100 with tax and tip). We will be back!

My first time trying spice roots. We chose to sit in rather then takeout as many other customers did...restaurant is tastefully decorated and the mildly aromatic smells of spices...I ordered butter chicken..basmati rice and garlic naan bread...the food arrived very quickly...tender chunks of chicken smothered in butter chicken sauce was very tastefull ..garlic naan bread was so good....totally recommend..my wife...

Best tasting Indian food in the area! Only need 1-2 dishes to be more than full, but always save room for the desserts, even if you don't have room!

The food is amazing! I have not sat in the restaurant but have heard it is a great experience BUT we order take-out often. It is absolutely delicious. Very authentic....incredible complexity of flavours. The Hariyali chicken, Lamb Curry, Madras Chicken, aloo gobi, everything we have tried has been unbelievable. The naan is to die for - great texture and taste.... More

Can't comment on the restaurant itself, because it was takeout. But was pleasantly surprised by the food, just moved to the area so I had no idea what to expect. Food was reasonably priced and very tasty. Will return for sure!

My roommate and I live just down the street and have been meaning to go to this restaurant for a year! We ended up being able to go for the lunch buffet and it was absolutely delish! Everything was super flavourful and the naan bread was freshly made, probably the best naan bread I have ever had! Will definitely make... More

- got takeout - food was okay, but certainly been to many better Indian food restaurants - too salty and oily for my taste

I had high hopes for this establishment, but in the end I was very disappointed. My experience with Indian cuisine is extensive, and I can only assume this establishment does not believe its clientele can tell the difference between what they order and what they receive. We ordered Chicken Tikka Masala - it arrived at our table in a white... More
