When brothers Ash and Rajiv Gujral planned a new Indian restaurant, they wanted to create neither an ultra-formal dining room nor a tiny hole in the wall venue. ROTI Indian Bistro marries casual, contemporary styling to classic Indian cuisine. Designer Susan Gujral created a warm, modern space with dramatic color, light and imagery that portrays the rich aesthetic essence of India. 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. Local and organic ingredients blend with traditional 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.

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.

Roti's is a terrific local restaurant with a pleasant, responsive staff. The food is always very good and the owner and family are very thoughtful and helpful about menu items. My only problem this time was one table of really loud guests who seemed unaware that they were not at a brawl.

Roti rocks, its streets ahead of other Indian Cusine (Clay Oven for example) I really struggle to think of another Bay Area Indian with better quality recipes and the staff are lovely!

Best Indian restaurant in SF. What a neighbourhood gem. Great menu, beautifully cooked and the best papadums we have ever had. The specials are definitely worth trying.

This is our favorite Indian restaurant in San Francisco, heck in the Bay Area! Mr. Pankash, the owner, is the nicest man and always ready to tell you anything you want to know about Indian food. We love his Murgh Makani (chicken) and Tandoori Duck, and this restaurant makes the best rice ANYWHERE! Long, Dry, flavorful, perfect every time. Absolutely delicious. But there are so many great things to eat, it's hard to choose. The lentil dishes are superb, as are the nann selections, and skewered meats galore. Wine and beer prices are very fair. Roti should be on everyone's restaurant list!

Roti is our "go-to" neighborhood favorite. The specials are always well-conceived and typically deliver a complex and harmonious mix of flavors. The wine list is well matched to the cuisine. Winner!

Every single time I go, the food is fresh tasty and encourages me to eat more than I should. Why oh why can't I ever leave enough on the plate for leftovers?

Love Roti, the best Indian food in SF (and I lived in London for seven years).
