My husband and I were looking for a bite at a local favorite that served up something special....Ideal was recommended by a gentleman who lived worked in the area. He was kind enough to walk us to the restaurant and introduce us to the owners....More

First, not actually Roti, but curry was decent. Price outrageous. We got the tourist shaft. Don't go if you are a tourist. True roti does not come wrapped in a wheat tortilla anyway. Go to BVI

Ideal knocks roti out of the park. Wonderful pepper sauce and a very reliable experience that keeps it a part of my regular schedule. There are few places downtown St. Thomas that I enjoy as much.

Knowledgeable and nice staff very willing to explain what Roti is. My wife and I split a shrimp while the other couple we were traveling with had the goat. Food was excellent and they had great local drinks. We had the Sorrell which was fabulous.

Possibly one of them funkiest 10 best places to eat in Saint Thomas. Naim and Anita took this place over about 2 years ago and it just keeps getting better and better. For great local food, it can't be beat!

Two locals recommended this place for Roti when we were visiting in Jan 2017. This was a new food experience for me. Where has Roti been my whole life??? The beef Roti was enough to fill two people. I will go back here every time...More
