If you are looking for a wide variety of Asian vegetarian dishes then Roots is where you want to go! I joined a writer friend for lunch and started off perusing the menu with a steaming cup of Vietnamese Green Lotus tea, very aromatic!

I have some people in my family with food allergies, and some strong preferences as well. Roots provided us with four different delicious meals.

The selection here is amazing! My partner and I ordered a small pumpkin soup and lettuce wraps as well as pot stickers with a cup of tea. The food was excellent quality and tasted great.

This is an all vegetarian restaurant next-door to a more casual vegetarian takeout, Heart and Soy. . The food is creative, always good, and as I said even carnivores really like it. I don't know what else to say but it's my go to place when I have vegetarian friends or when I want to do so myself

I had eggrolls and rice noodles with vegetables and tofu. Fair sized serving and very filling. Enjoyed. Friend had warm vegetable wrap and liked it. Again filling. Restaurant not very attractive. Tabletops faux wood and had old water stains. Not a lot of atmosphere.

We visit this restaurant because our daughter is vegan. Even though Roots has vegan food choices, it still has some good food.
