Contemporary Indian
Award winning Indian Street Kitchen & Dining Room in the West End, a short walk from Bond Street and Marble Arch.

Roti Chai houses both a casual canteen-style ground floor Street Kitchen and a more formal lower ground Dining Room, each with their own dedicated kitchen. The menus feature contemporary dishes using traditional cooking techniques from across the Indian sub-continent.

The Street Kitchen is open all day for dine in, Monday to Sunday. We are taking bookings and walk-ins are also welcome, subject to availability. Our Dining Room downstairs is now open for dinner, Thursday to Saturday.

A collection service is also offered for guests who would prefer to order food to take out.

It goes without saying that the health and safety of our guests and team is our top priority, so we have introduced new Covid Secure measures to allow you to dine with confidence.

The starters were great however the lamb curry was not so good was quite bland. The service was not so attentive although they didn’t have many people in at the time.

Great food as always, friendly staff, clean restaurant. Restrooms needed some attention unfortunately but that didn’t take away from the experience. I told staff who dealt with it promptly.

We loved the food and the service. One suggestion would be to offer better seating experience. Struggling a lot with coats and bags and to even accommodate my order on the table while there were more specious tables available for same number of people. So made me a bit sad to see that we weren’t given an option to choose.

We had a great time at Roti Chai. The chaat was amazing. We weren't massive fans of the chicken lollipops they were way overdone.

But lovely place and the food is fantastic.

Food is reasonably good but pace of service was rushed (mains served whilst we were still eating the starters). Overpriced.

The quality of food has really gone downhill. The chicken on the wings was tough, there was no tamarind sauce on the papri chaat. There papri chaat was smaller in size too.

Excellent dining location. This is not your local Indian establishment, this is beautifully made food, carefully thought out, deftly executed, perfectly balanced in flavour. I had the lamb, which was tender and lightly spiced. The orange zest naan was a revelation. I would thoroughly recommend this restaurant.

Once I sat down the service was absolutely wonderful. However I really want to bring to your attention the attitude of one waitress who greeted me at the door. When she said my reservation was for 6, I simply corrected her and stated that it was in fact for 6.30 and that I had the email and notification on Open Table to prove the sale. She was extremely rude and stand off-ish and even walked away when I had not even finished my sentence. Absolutely put off by get service however the service downstairs was much better and enjoyable.

I do however respectfully request that you check the waitresses greeting customers at the main desk because if I had not had a better experience downstairs I can assure you this review would have been worse and I would be writing about it on my social media.

Thank you
