We have had a wonderful dinner here as sorry of three. The food has been as good as 6 Keats ago, when we went here first. We enjoyed the Roti feast and did not manage to finish it although it has been delicious.

We are recently arrivals in the neighborhood and are systematically trying all the West Portal restaurants. The "other" Indian restaurant, Clay Oven, was a disappointment. Roti offers the standard fare, but tasty, fresh and served with a smile.
