If you are used to authentic, high quality Indian food, this won't equal the best places in the Berkshires but is an okay place for pre-theater dining in Williamstown. All of the dishes were fine but nothing special.

Went for lunch with five other family members based on the reviews . Other than us, there were four or five customers. We asked for buffet so we could choose what we liked and we had only 45 minutes for lunch. Someone mentioned the buffet...More

We like Indian food and this was good and typical, but not great. The chicken dishes were excellent, but there were no beef or fish choices. We would go there again.

My favorite place to get lunch! I love the buffet -- just $9! Great Indian food to either take out or stay and eat. Restaurant is nice and cozy inside. I often go by for the take-out lunch buffet and the food is always hot...More

I usually am not a big fan of Indian food (too spicy!), but the limited choices in W'town convinced me to peruse the menu. Seemed to have some unique preparations in addition to the usual fare, so we gave it a try. Didn't disappoint. Will...More

I love that they don't hold back on the flavors at this restaurant. And if you ask for hot, expect HOT. I like the Jalfreezi and my daughter's a fan of the tikka masala and korma. The garlic-cilantro naan is also a hit. Great atmosphere...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.
