ROTI Indian Bistro marries casual, contemporary styling to classic Indian cuisine. The chefs take diners on a culinary tour of India, offering a taste of the North in the Tandoori meat dishes and hints of the South in the vegetarian curries. Fresh breads are available from the tandoor, a mesquite- fired clay oven unique to Indian cooking. Traditional freshly house roasted Indian spices to create a diverse fresh, menu. ROTI prides itself on the dining experience - at this popular new addition to the vibrant West Portal neighborhood, refined customer service from the attentive staff and fabulous food have established a higher standard of dining for the area.

    This isn't authentic Indian food. The names of dishes are misleading. If you are indian and order an indian dish, you will be surprised when it arrives as something entirely different than what you were expecting. If you try to complain about it, you will be told that no one else has complained in 20 years so it must be our fault for complaining and not the restaurants. So eh

    I hope they keep the malai kofta on the permanent menu! Absolutely delicious food and the garlic naan is solid. Dessert is not to be missed either.

    This is a family-run Indian restaurant near the top of the West Portal commercial corridor. The owner, Mr. Shah, is a constant presence, and the staff are cheerful and quick. We loved everything we ordered - particularly the December special menu items and the malai kofta. It can get a bit loud but we all thoroughly enjoyed the visit.

    Darn. Must I give this place an outstanding review? Because if I do, which I must, more customers will come and I may not get a table. Selfish I know. This West Portal treasure is truly outstanding for Indian food.

    We haven’t been here for about a year now and yet everything is as wonderful as then. Delicious food, attentive service and friendly staff. Prices have risen slightly but that is to be expected. We had vegetable and lamb samosas, crispy pastry and tasty fillings. The chicken korma was creamy, flavorful and quality chicken. Tried Gosht Madras for a change, will definitely order again, so tasty. Naan breads very good. Can’t wait to go back again soon.
