ROOT is an ethnic Wa restaurant that bends the rules! Mixing the traditional with the modern, we've brought our favourite dishes from across the Wa hills to be paired for the first time with expertly crafted international cocktails.


Wa food is defined by its simplicity, freshness and spiciness! A combination of bold, distinctive flavours, fresh zesty salads of mountain herbs, mouthwatering smoked and barbecued meats and hearty home-cooked stews made from regional pulses and mountain roots.


Root puts forth a refreshing experience in a stylish, modern setting while giving exposure to one of Myanmar's most underappreciated cuisines. We aim to help teach people about our culture one dish at a time.
