Said the wait was 30 minutes when it was actually over one hour. Wouldn’t push two 2-tops together to seat my party. When finally seated, the server was friendly and efficient. The food was good, but a bit spicy for my taste. I won’t be...More

I love this place for lunch. Never been for dinner. It's super cute and the high tables (where I usually sit) have super comfy chairs. I love those chairs. I want them for my house! Roots is the type of a setup where you order...More

This place is Awesome. I've never experienced anything quite like it. It's a must go for Asian cuisine. My bowl of soup was huge. It was a meal all by itself. I love this place. Everything is fresh and fantastic.

Came here with my wife and we had some soup and chicken dishes. The service was a bit slow but the place was busy for lunch. Our meals were tasty and can't knock the place as the people were waiting to be seated.

This family own restaurant is the best example of traditional plates yet modern twist to perfection, elegance and culture. Services has a important roll as they really know every details of clients specifications & requirements. Love the fruit bar drinks.

My initial impression of Roots a year ago was negative, to some extent because I rarely find anything positive in restaurants advertising "fusion". Experience teaches that fusion usually means that they do several things poorly. This month our return visit was an eye opener. In...More
