    This is a must visit! The food and spice level (medium) to my subjective taste was fantastic. Service was excellent and we felt that they really wanted our opinion regarding their food and asked if there was anything that they could improve on (and the answer was no)!

    Being British I often miss the ease with which you can get fabulous Indian and Pakistani food in London. There are good very casual Indian cafes in Los Angeles and a couple of more high end restaurants but not that many well priced, well designed Indian restaurants serving a good selection of wines, beers and cocktails! Happy to say Roots is now on my go to list alongside Badmaash. Food was delicious and fresh, service was very attentive and we appreciated their genuine desire for feedback.

    We had a dinner on Thanksgiving day, when pretty much everything around was closed. Lucky to find this place. The quality of the food is outstanding. In terms of ambience it lies exactly between something that is too casual and fancy. More on the casual side. Just enough aesthetic added, Kendall, and beautiful mural on the wall, to make it feel like a restaurant. The prices are above moderate, but it is justified by location and the quality of everything else. Very attentive service. You can see their genuinely care about this place. We had chicken masala and tofu masala, and it was really really good. They also have the best and creamiest mango lasse I ever had in my life! Highly recommend!

    We really enjoyed our dinner at Roots. The service was very good and the food excellent. We started with paneer Masala fries, they were a wonderful treat. The chicken tikka masala was also super tasty. Actually everything we ate was terrific. Will definitely return next time we are in the area.

    I’m an Indian, from the UK but live in Singapore. We were in Cali for 2.5 weeks and really missed our home cooked North Indian food. We found this little gem. The owner came out and had a lovely conversation with us, the food tasted home cooked, the type of Indian food that had very little oil and was such great value for money. The mixed veg and butter chicken were awesome. We got lucky with this find. Keep going Roots!!

    Absolutely spectacular! Spices--aromatic and flavorful--are available in mild/medium/spicy. This is a family run business, and the outstanding food and service reflect it. The restaurant is modern and clean. What more could one ask. This is the best Indian food in Los Angeles

    Do not walk, RUN to Roots Indian Bistro. Authentic Indian food. Service was attentive and genuine. We booked late after a outing to the art museum. Food was delicious. We had the Melrose Mayhem for two and, wow, it was amazing. Spice levels were perfect, we request some medium, some extra spicy. Lamb Vindaloo was tender and hearty. Portions were perfect. Teas were lovely, too. The folks who run this place are super! Go. Eat here. Enjoy!
