This is fine dining at it best.. We had 4 courses, with wine pairing. A journey from fish to fowl to game.. Our group was 24 people and the kitchen did very well in bring out the food at the same time! Our group had...the one section of the dining room allowing for a little dancing later on.More

We arrived a little late, hence didnt get to see much of the scenery. Despite the dinner lounge being packed, the atmosphere was intimate and delightful. The staff was pleasant and had much knowledge of the wines and meals they were serving. The explanation of...each decadent creation paired with exquisite wines was fascinating. The rooms are beautifully decorated and had a glass fire place, a perfect, comfy, warm setting for a very cold winter's night - relaxing with top notch complimentary wine. Heads up, its situated next to a chicken farm that attracts many flies.More

We enjoyed two days over New Year’s at the Forum Homini Hotel and the meals was enjoyed at Roots restaurant.  The evenings include a set 6-course dinner with optional wine pairing – even additional option to top up the glass of wine if you really...enjoy that specific cultivar.  Afternoons have a simple yet great lunch menu and lovely cocktails.  I opted for the Naledi (unique to Roots) and have to say that was the perfect choice for me that don’t prefer sweet cocktails, yet wanted something different to the always obvious Margarita.  We also thought to celebrate the departing 2019 with the ‘many macaroons’ option and what a lovely choice that turned out to be!  My only constructive criticism would be breakfast … when you order your hot breakfast and are given additional options like mushrooms / potato wedges etc. and you get half a mushroom cut in 3 pieces or one slice of potato wedge it feels a bit ridiculous.  We can most certainly complement the flavours, but breakfast usually have a bit more to offer – even if it is fine dining and requires beautiful plating.  But overall, I really enjoyed every single dish at Roots and gladly recommend it – it really is a spoil and a proper way to greet the previous year and welcome the New!More

Agge nee! After all the online hype about their fabulous six course meals and it being the number 2 restaurant in Krugersdorp, I was left cold, and so was the meal. The menu looks good on paper, but there was no soul to the food...- as if someone had prepared it from a schedule but does not know how to cook - rather over engineered. On the positive side, the staff are really friendly and they make an effort with special occasions, but the dessert they offered at the breakfast unfortunately did not mitigate the poor overall culinary experience. Sad. So much potential...More

I enjoyed a very nice Sunday Lunch here with a special friend. The setting is outstanding, the service was very good and I especially enjoyed their wine pairing with the 7 courses. Something special!

The previous time we visited the restaurant, the food was top notch (5 star). However, this time it was pretty average. No crispy skin on the salmon or pork belly. The portions are super small, even for a five course. The service was very good...though. The restaurant should definitely invest in another aircon or two.More

An annual breakfast event. So looking forward to the set menu for breakfast. Arrived to a buffet breakfast. Company great... please go back to the set menu. I loved the oats with almond flakes... Beautiful scenery... love the peacefulness.

My partner and I went to Roots Restaurant for our anniversary and we must say the setting was very intimate and tranquil. We had the 6 course experience in which we found 3 of the 6 meals absolutely exquisite. Roots also wished us well with...a yummy desert for our special day which we felt was going the extra mile. The staff and customer service was incredible.More
