Best Indian food anywhere!!!
Wonderful food. Great friendly staff. Highly recommended.
Always great. Thanks!
So happy we found this neighborhood gem! Delicious food and great service.
It’s just a wonderful spot with excellent food and the warmest hospitality!
Love this place!
We had the best experience at Roti. Great food, the staff were excellent and the restaurant has a great vibe. We will definitely be back.
We arrived early. The service from staff of waiters was immaculate; every dish, paneer, lamb, salmon, rice, roti bread was delicious. I had a fabulous martini and glass of exquisite white wine. The owner gifted a birthday dessert, so very generous. He took the time to speak with us and make a personal connection. We did not feel rushed. I especially liked the beautiful light streaming in from outside and the decorations inside. The space is relaxing and warm, exactly the feeling I hoped for to talk and celebrate our special occasion. Not being able to travel to India during times of Covid-19 has been hard for families to be separated. This restaurant provides an authentic feeling of being home in India, with the intense flavor of food, libations, attention and overall kind hospitality.
i was eyeing the outdoor space. it is the most attractive one i have seen. so i signed up and went with my neighbors. just going out again so it has been 2 years since i went to ROTI.
first of all too cold for outdoors but they gave the indoor space alot fo thought and we decided against the cold and went indoor.
the food was well prepared and reasonably priced and we all got something different. was delicious .
the facility was pristine and everything was organized. i will go back for sure.
Excellent service, authentic food and the service was awesome. I definitely would come back.
Best Indian food we’ve ever had. Service was top notch. Everyone hustled and very accommodating. We will be back. Thanks Jay!
Love it when we get together w friends at Roti. Quiet enough for conversation over good food.
Love love this place…
We love Roti and we’re thrilled to introduce our friends. Food is fabulous— great flavor combinations, everything was hot and ready at the same time. We ordered so many dishes, and leftovers the next day were still delicious. Staff is super accommodating— we closed the restaurant but never felt rushed.
Great food. Amazing service.
Good food at a good price, I suggest the lemonade, wow never had anything like it!
Best Indian food and great atmosphere
We love Roti's food, especially the seasonally offered Spicy Roasted Gobi, typically featured in February and October. The staff and owner are very friendly and attentive. We just wish there was a location near us to add to our regular weekly rotation of favorite places to dine.
First time dining out in a long time. Nice outdoor patio area tables well spaced & separated by screens. Heaters were not working but it was a nice evening in the city.
Food was delicious, good service, nice chatting to the owner who sent us home with mango smoothies for the kids breakfast.
Will be back again.
Excelente comida India, como si fuera hecha en casa porque es un restaurante familiar, muy recomendado con buena relación precio/valor
Overall, just OK.
First, they are doing cocktails now, which sound promising on the menu, but are not quite up to the level they should be and they take an extremely long time to arrive
The food, on the whole, is adequate, but not much more. Some of the appetizer had were a little worse (one a sort of chicken nugget dish). The entrees are fine, if not exciting
The staff however is very nice and the person I assume is the owner did come by twice to check on us
Good place for Indian food near the West Portal muni station.
Always exceptional monthly specials and outstanding food and service—my all-time favorite Indian restaurant.
Roti is by far the best Indian restaurants in San Francisco, if not anywhere. The owner is still involved, the quality is extra ordinary. One of the few places where they grind the spices freshly and daily. All the usual indian favs and some very creative and outstanding new creations. We have been going here for years and is always an extraordinary experience.
Bistro Roti is a great location for fine Indian food. Situated in beautiful West Portal, the friendly staff always make you feel welcomed and the food is always consistently great! They also have monthly specials that are unusual and well priced. We visit here often!
Food is excellent, as always. Could use more heaters in the outdoor space. Inside way too close for comfort.
Never disappoints!!!!!!! Amazing Indian cuisine. Besides the food being amazing the staff is great. Waitresses like Katy always polite and get the order spot on. I’m vegan so I’m always asking questions and they are very nice to me. You can’t beat the atmosphere… great seating inside or out. The best part is the owner, Shah, he is kind and always checks to make sure everything was just the way we wanted it. Great restaurant to frequent and support. We come from San Mateo for the consistent wonderful experience.
Great food made even more enjoyable by the fantastic service and atmosphere.
We were a party of 4. Two couples who haven't seen each other in several years, so we not only wanted to enjoy some good food, but we also wanted an atmosphere that was conducive to conversation without having to yell across the table at each other.
Roti provided all that and so much more.
We have all had and enjoyed Indian food before, but are not all that familiar with ordering beyond the basic curry and naan.
Our server was so helpful with suggestions and recommendations. All of them were fantastic.
The owner made his way over to our table and also helped with recommendations. His warmth and graciousness will certainly bring us back again and again.
Thank you for a fantastic evening and delicious meal.
* * some highlights of our meal: the lamb popsicles were a favorite of the table.
Also delicious were the bread basket and seafood curry.
Roti Indian Bistro is a true neighborhood gem! I l appreciate the cuisines of India, yet Roti is the only Indian restaurant I will patronize in San Francisco; the food it THAT good. The service is always attentive, the specials are intriguing, the craft cocktails delicious, and the overall experience reliably good every time. The family who operate Roti Indian Bistro are almost always on site, and Pankaj and Jai keep things running smoothly with the busy dining room and take-out and delivery options. There's a cozy parklet for outdoor dining too. I love Roti Indian Bistro!
This is by far our favorite restaurant in San Francisco!
This is my favorite Indian food in SF! We eat here at least 1 x month and have never had a bad experience. Carol
The best Indian food!
Roti is my favorite Indian restaurant in San Francisco. I just wish it was closer to where I live
Best Indian restaurant in the city.
Masala tea ( with refill) and papad appetizer are really authentic . Every curry and dal dish has been adapted yet tastes great. At first the Service staff is a bit less attentive until a younger server came to take over. Value is unbeatable ! Nann is less of a highlight .
The food was good, the service was good. Nice touch to have the owner greet us and make us feel at home.
Roti is still our favorite Indian restaurant in San Francisco. Terrific menu and always high quality preparation, as well as super friendly service. Love the game hens with arugula salad, dal, naan, samosas, etc.
The service was outstanding and the food is great as always!
Fabulous service and terrific Indian food!
