Lovely evening with great food and service. Made all the sweeter by being able to use our £70 Opentable dinning cheque. Thanks Opentable & thanks Roti Chai.

Service was fast. We dined early so it was quiet. Food was good. Loved my (staple) butter chicken! The fish (forgot name) was also very good. I don’t think I had that before at other Indian restaurants. It was light but bursting with flavours. The regular naan was also very good. My 6 y.o. had 1.5 baskets 😀

Honestly, food was worse than food you would find in a cheap Indian restaurant, absolutely nothing special, cheap food with a price tag of ‘fine dining’. I normally never leave review but I felt I should. It’s definitely overpriced

Lovely food. We went for a family evening out. The items we loved were the bhel puri, the idli sambhar and the tarka daal. The vegetarian starters were good but we were more impressed with the mains - will probably go straight for the mains next time. Huge selection of drinks which was good.

We only had vegetarian food. The vegetarian starters were tasty. The paneer and jackfruit dishes as main course were disapppinting. Hardly any paneer and the sauce was too strong and overpowering any taste of the vegetables. The jackfruit was too dry and slightly undercooked. The daal was tasteless and insipid.

Had a great experience, first time. Didn't catch the waiters name but he was very well mannered and polite, food was made on time with good quality. Have recommended this to my friends also. Was not made aware of the service charge i paid, would be good to get a break down of the bill. Overall good.

I have been coming here for a while and recommend it to anyone. On this occasion we were in the Dining room for a full evening meal on a Sunday. Great service and the food, as always, was terrific. This restaurant has stayed consistently good for years and has a very i interesting menu. Upstairs which we are not reviewing this time is break treat too, especially for lunch.

We went with our young son who fell asleep in the car, I went in and asked if we could bring the pushchair in so he can sleep in there, we weren’t able to bring it down to the dining area however they very happily offered us a sofa table and we were seated very quickly. Service really good and was served very quickly, thumps up from us

The service was slow to begin with. Water took a while to come. However as the whole party arrived, it improved significantly. We loved the food and everyone was friendly. The meat just fell off the bone of the slow cooked lamb. Outstanding. Spices were evenly balanced. I will not hesitate to visit again if we're after Indian food.

Roti Chai never disappoints. Great tasty food with friendly efficient service. Bustling atmosphere. Hadn't been in a while and enjoyed the slightly changed menu - new additions. Chicken 65 a must. Turmeric chicken was excellent. Still waiting for Golgoppa hint hint.
