A memorable dining experience


Welcome to Spice Roots

In 2002 Spice Roots opened its first branch in Nairobi, Kenya. Our primary goal was to use the freshest ingredients in order to leave a lasting impression with authentic and flavourful cuisine. For over 16 years now, our loyal customers in Nairobi have been delighted to keep coming back for the best curries in town.

We are ecstatic to announce that the residents of Guelph and surrounding areas (tri cities) are able to enjoy the same, delicious recipes. 12 years later, in 2014, Spice Roots opened its first North American location on 200 Kortright Rd. West. Attention to detail, no matter how small, is paramount to us. The success of any occasion relies upon each client being able to relax and enjoy a calm and enjoyable dining experience. Spice roots specializes in North Indian Frontier cuisine, using enriched spices and herbs to create each dish. Our herbs and spices are selected not merely for their subtlety of flavors but also for their health benefits provided to the consumer.
