Always spot on

We eat at Roots roughly once a month and every time it's fabulous. The lobster masala is delicious, but so is every other dish we've tried. This is a real local gem.

I love this place. It gets everything right. The food is fabulous, the staff are friendly and attentive and the cocktails are amazing. I have lost count of the number of times I have been here and I have never been disappointed. The menu is varied and delicious. They have a good wine list too. Don't miss this place!

This restaurant and its staff are something else. Rohit is exceptional. His knowledge of food and wine was quite surprising and refreshing. Thank you for a wonderful evening. We will certainly be back for more.

One of my friend who works in hospitality sector had recommended to go to this restaurant during my visit to London. We had to travel slightly from King cross to get to the restaurant, however it was all worth it.From the word go, I could say every box of hospitality was ticked. You could actually appreciate the authentic Indian food... More

We visited this restaurant on a Saturday evening with friends and family. The service was brilliant from the outset - friendly and helpful, without being at all intrusive. The staff were very accommodating to our children and made them mocktails. While on the pricey side for Indian, they did spoil us with an interesting aperitif, palate cleansers and soup between...

Went here on a recommendation from family. What an unbelievable find! Everything from the food to the service to the restaurant. The staff are friendly and attentive but not overly so. It is the best meal I have ever had not just best Indian. The corn fed butter chicken was beautiful. In a really nice area of North London as... More

I booked a table for four at Roots N1 on a Sunday evening for friends, one of which is a vegetarian and all of which are big fans of Indian cuisine. Hands down, they all agreed this was the best Indian meal they'd ever enjoyed. The service is impeccable, attentive but not overly so, and the restaurant has an elegant... More

We booked for Sunday 7th June at 8pm and made our reservation by booking direct with the restaurant itself. We arrived on foot after about walking 1/2 mile from the Caladionian tube station found on... More
