Roots Restaurant and Bar Manchester was opened in summer 2012 with the goal of serving a family style menu of tasty, bold flavored foods with global influence in a fun and lively setting that makes our guests feel at home from the moment they walk in the door till when they leave. To enhance the experience we offer a selection of wines from around the world as well as beers from the African roots. The menus are extensive and have a little something for everyone, and our staff are here to create the perfect dinning experience for every guest that joins them. Big on fresh tastes and fragrant spices, leaving your taste buds asking for more of Africa's well loved dishes such as Jellof Rice, Tadjine and Boerewors. Largest African Restaurant in the north west. Located in Liverpool city center, we offer a variety of seating choices, including a comfortable lounge, bar seats, VIP table seating. Roots accepts reservations but always welcomes walk-ins, adventurers as well as those that are lost. The Roots vibe draws you in and holds you close, invites you to be seen, or sit back and just savor the beautiful African ambiance that surrounds you. A feast of beautiful art decor with different themed rooms available for private hire and ideal for special occasions.
