In spite of the slow hour and the small size of our order, we were greeted warmly and made to feel very much at home while waiting for our order. The crust on the samosas was excellent, and the filling was good. The chutneys could...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!

We came here for a lunch buffet and everything we ate was delicious. The staff was very attentive and the food was fresh. They even brought out fresh, warm naan for us. We really enjoyed our meal here!

I had take out food and I ate very little of it. I'm used to great Indian restaurants in RI. THe sauce reminded me of SpaghettiOs, not very appealing. The vegetable rice had about a dozen vegetables to a pund of rice. No flavor. The...More

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.
