Every dish here is phenomenal. We have eaten here regularly for the past few months and have had a wonderful experience every time.
We introduced our friends to Indian food at Roti and they loved it!
Excellent neighborhood restaurant with quality everything! Owner’s hospitality is second to none. It’s hands down the best Indian restaurant I’ve ever eaten at!
Delicious. Especially love the lentils of the day. Very friendly service. Also great for lunch.
Great as always. Fantastic service, excellent food.
Amazing. Made it a point to go for their February special: roasted cauliflower!
We went back for the monthly special of a whole head of cauliflower with cream sauce. Yummy. We brought two friends along to indulge.
Haven't been here in quite a while and my last experience was GREAT, can't say the same for this visit. We were seated promptly and the first thing we noticed was how loud it was. Guess this is the "new normal". After reading the menu, we chose the following items; We started with Non Sweet Lassi's which were excellent; Garlic & Basil Naan (which was superb & loaded w/Garlic and Basil and piping hot & the Paratha, also wonderful; Crab cake appetizers, which were only 2 or 3 cakes, nothing to write home about and very, very small. The dipping sauce helped. Chicken Tikka Masala, skimpy bits of chicken, it tasted more like tomato soup, not rich and creamy; Lamb Korma which was o.k., tender w/a decent brown sauce of some sort; Murgh Madras (chicken curry) the best dish of all three w/the best flavoring; Aloo Gobi (Cauliflower & Potatoes), the worst of all our dishes. Another dish in a liquid pool of tomato sauce or something. Had absolutely no flavor. Even the basic Basmati rice left us cold. What used to be interesting in flavors and unique dishes has somehow become very "generic" in our opinion and left us all feeling a bit ~ blah ! Sorry Roti, but we have had better for a lot less $$.
We always go when they make the cauliflower special. This time it was a creamy sauce with peas. So yummy. I'm thinking of going back before the end of the month. Love the food.
Always great food and service. Many great dishes, but skip the ho hum crab cakes.
Excellent. Had a wonderful meal and will certainly return again.
The staff, especially the owner, seemed distracted and preoccupied. They weren’t in tune with us or many of the other diners. The most disturbing was when our server started to gather our leftovers to box up. She accidentally dropped half a lemon from one of our plates. The owner walked by, picked up the lemon and put it on my husband’s plate! He never addressed us or said anything to the server. We were shocked that he would pick something off the floor and put it on a customer’s plate. We expressed our shock to the server - she had no reaction or response. It was like they were zombies without any emotion. Really made me wonder about their sanitary practices in general (like, what happens in the kitchen or areas we can’t see?!?) and their low health score. Eek. We won’t go back nor would we recommend this place.
ROTI is our favorite place to eat in San Francisco! The menu is both traditional and fresh. Flavors are unique and exciting. The monthly specials add variety to an already-special array of superb Indian dishes.
A neighborhood gem. The best Indian food in SF. The owner is wonderful -greeting the guests and making sure everything makes for a lovely evening.
The food was pretty bad. Its hard to mess up a samosa but this was officially the worst samosa Ive ever had. They should have at least added some salt to it. The overall quality of the food was really poor.
Great specials are offered each month that are worth watching for. Manager is very engaged with the quality and service and gets to know his clientele to check in as to how you are enjoying the food and experience. One of our favorite neighborhood restaurants.
Roti is one of my favorite places to dine. We order the Roti's Feast which is great because it is an assortment of the best dishes they have: Assorted Appetizers, Mixed Tandoori, Murgh Masala, Dal, Pulao, Kachumber, Raita, Naan, Kheer and Chai. It also provides for delicious leftovers.
As usual, the food at Roti is excellent and inventive. One of the monthly specialties this time was a curried halibut that was a bit zingy (just right). And their bhindi masala (okra) was delicious as always. (The bengan bharta [eggplant] is my other favorite among the vegetarian curries.) This is by far our favorite neighborhood restaurant and one of our favorite SF restaurants.
Delicious dinner as always. Thank you!!
One of our favorites and did not disappoint. Service was a bit slow this time....
We went early so it was quiet and service is excellent, as well as the food.
Yummy food with great selection of biryanis, and the lamb biryani is really great. Seems to be a favorite neighborhood place, place was full on a Sunday evening in January. Worth the trip if you don't live near and don't even know this area of SF. A treat.
First off BIG thank you to the Host for accomadating 3 of us when my original reservation was for 2. We arrived around 6:30 and the place was already packed. The food was excellent. We had 2 chicken dishes that I wish I can remember the names and lamb dish. All were really good. We also got the mixed Naan plate along with thali plate. Great place can’t wait to go back.
Solid West Portal staple year after year.
We were frankly disappointed this time, having had better meals at Roti in the past. samosas undercooked, soup too salty, other dishes a bit bland. Hopefully just a bad night.
Best Indian food in SAn Francisco. Owner is very kind. The waiters and waitresses are great
They sat us right away and the food was amazing! Like, seriously, so good.
A wonderful experience with delicious food and attentive service !
We came here to celebrate our 43rd wedding anniversary and requested a quiet table. Our request was granted! In addition to our very delicious meal of perfectly cooked vegetable pakora, aloo gobi, and tandoori chicken, the owner sent a complimentary dessert of peppermint ice cream and cinnamon ice cream. We're sure to continue going to such a hospitable restaurant!
We always enjoy our meals at Roti. The food is flavorful and the menu offers an abundance of choices.
This was my second visit to Roti and the food was as delicious, subtle and nuanced as I remember from the first visit. The vegetable korma & goat cheese naan were outstanding. Service was attentive and prompt but not overbearing. Looking forward to my next meal at Roti!
We met there for a special birthday celebration for one of our business friends and expected to have great time and decent Indian food. We had great Indian food and great value for the money. It was birthday celebration that we will never forget and now great spot for Indian cuisine.
The family was happy with the spice level of every dish. I like sag daal, chicken tikia masala was the star and a bit pricey.
Delicious food, great service. I highly recommend this place and will be back. As others stated, the specials are fantastic. It was a little loud as it filled up, but not enough to disrupt our conversation.
The best north Indian restaurant in the city. The food is consistently excellent and they are always experimenting with new dishes.
The food was good as always, maybe even better. We had their special for the month, cauliflower (the whole cauliflower with a wonderful sauce on it and in it), chicken korma (absolutely, my favorite), and my daughter had veg. korma (her favorite), along with garlic naan and rice. Their mango lassi is excellent. The host is the ever genial Pun Kash (sp?), a wonderful kind man. 5 stars. I highly recommend this restaurant.
very good food and service; it was just a little too loud for us... but we're getting old maybe...
Very tasty Maharashtra regional cuisine. Large portions and friendly service. The owner greets you at the door. Seating limited, so reservations suggested for dinner.
I love, love, love the murgh makhani (also known as butter chicken). I've introduced friends to Roti and they've returned without me! On our most recent visit, we had just returned from a cruise in Europe and couldn't wait to eat at Roti. Great food, good service.
I always have an excellent experience here. The staff, the food and the owner are all wonderful.
