This is the place to go for the most fantastic roti. My dinner tonight was 2 hot doubles and a curry goat roti. The doubles are light and well filled and extremely well spiced, an absolute joy to eat !! The goat roti was filled with tender curry goat and potatoes. The roti are light and fluffy a testament to... More

I was very excited to go to Roti Joupa and try out the food but I have to say that I was terribly disappointed. I am a Trini born and raised and I know how local Trinidadian food taste. I can only assume that anyone who gave their food an excellent has not tasted authentic roti/buss-up-shot/ curry goat etc. The... More

Don't be fooled by the unassuming shop front and don't be put off by the lack of seating, because Roti Joupa serve the best Roti in town! If you can handle a bit of spice ask for them hot. They are delicious and so filling. If you're feeling hungry be sure to ask for some doubles as well!

I thoroughly enjoyed the prawns roti. It was very reasonably priced and succulent. Great taste great value for money. I love my rôtis and this one just made it to the top of my list! Will definitely pop by sooner rather than later.

Bought kumar, poulorie, doubles, veggie roti and chicken roti. Was REALLY excited at the prospect of some good food, because it's been MONTHS since I had any authentic Trini food. Got to the location and it was packed, so I felt encouraged - if there are a lot of people food must be good right? Not really. What worked: The... More

The Roti is freshly prepared. The staff are very Polite and friendly. The food is very nice and they give you the option of adding the sauce to your food.

One of the few places I've found in London where you can classify the food as authentically Trinidadian. The doubles is as good as (some) places back home and easily far ahead of anywhere else in London. They also have mauby, macaroni pie and tamarind balls as well as kuchela and achar than can be pre-ordered.

I've visited Roti Joupa to try Trinidadian Roti and Chana. Customer service was excellent. Extremely helpful, polite and been explained about the food portions and ingredients as I'm vegan. Food was extremely fresh, very tasty, definitely will be back again! I would highly recommend this place to everyone who likes to explore The Worlds Food that is all available in... More

Heard so much about this small takeaway that I thought I'd try their roti. I found it to be just OK. As a non meat eater, I chose the shrimps / prawn with curry as the filler. I was disappointed that it didn't have the full flavour I expect in a curry roti, it was very bland with just salt... More

So far this is the best place to have authentic West Indian style Roti. Good that you can see them making them fresh then and there. But it's not the same as my aunts & uncles in St. Vincent (theirs are the best. If I do say so myself). And that's because this place puts too much potato in it.... More
