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.

A very nice Vindaloo sauce but the chicken was overcooked and dry as was a chicken tikka. Rather overpriced for the quality. A nice environment but watch out for loud and boorish students which can make the ambiance a little intrusive. Once again, a vindaloo...More

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!

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.
