About Roots Restaurant & Gallery

Roots, which seats 100 patrons, attracts local ­residents and tourists ­alike because it not only serves genuine township food but has an added vibe that celebrates Soweto life. Every dish on the menu has a story and an interesting name: Ivy League Steak, Model C Sticky Wings or Shisa Nyama Platter.
