Dined with out of town friends who specifically requested a dinner at Roti Indian Bistro. Wonderful as always. I noticed they are doing a brisk take-out business with the Covid-19 concerns. Nice to know.

This is one of favorite restaurants. The food is wonderful (chicken tikki masala!) and service always attentive but not intrusive. We always order a lot so we have leftovers!

Apps - Fish pakoras and lamb skewers - both apps were really under seasoned. Fish pakoras were cooked well but quite bland. Lamb skewers were slightly overcooked so a little chewy
Main course - chicken korma and lamb keema. Especially requested for the dishes to be seasoned well. Korma was excellent, keema was okay. The bread basket was quite good too even though the onion kulcha was not what it was supposed to be. Overall a good experience. Will certainly come back but would probably avoid any lamb dishes.

Consistently serving a fine meal. Regular additions to the menu are fun and interesting. This is one of our go too restaurants that we enjoy alone or with newbies to Indian cuisine. Consistently gracious welcome and service.

We live in Nopa and always drive 15min. across town to visit Roti. We believe it is the BEST Indian food in the city - hands down!

Food was a bit disappointing, not as good as usual. Very busy Sat. night though; we tend to go mid-week which may be the reason.

Excellent Indian food, though a little of the expensive side compared to lesser Indian restaurants. Well worth it for a special occasion.

Some food was great and other was really mediocre. Saag gosht wonderful; fried calamari almost uneatable. Space is nice but really noisy so go early before it fills up.

This is our neighborhood Indian restaurant, and while there are better places for Indian cuisine in SF Roti wins with its ambiance and service. We love their vegetable samosas, vindaloos and rotating monthly specials. My only complaint is that rice is not included in an entree order, which seems odd. Who eats chicken vindaloo without rice?

This place is hands down my favorite Indian restaurant in the entire Bay Area. I live in Anza Vista and drive 20+ minutes just to go to this particular restaurant. Go...you will not be disappointed.
