My father had a past experience with an Indian restaurant that wasn't good, but after visiting Cafe Roti, he wants to keep coming back. Try their butter chicken or butter lamb. And prepare to be full afterwards.

The food was somewhat different than im use to but that of course is to b expected. I was impressed with the service and quality of the food. I was trying my best not to be picky and try new things. All n all I enjoyed my experience.

Such a wonderful meal at Cafe Roti! Great service - kind and courteous. We ate lunch here and for $10 we got a drink, soup, bread, meal & dessert. We had the spinach sauce and butter sauce with paneer and they were delicious! I have never had more creamy, flavorful butter sauce and I haven't been able to stop thinking... More

We have visited Cafe Roti many times since it opened, but I'll review our latest visit (today). We went for lunch; their 9.95 lunch special can't be beat. We also ordered the appetizer sampler ($9 for a combination of three appetizers). The sampler was good and gave us a taste of lots of spice combinations. It came with three sauces.... More

There are lunch specials that come with a salad, a selection of curries and dessert. The service is very good and the food is good, too! We go there from time to time for lunch and haven't been disappointed yet.

Went for a large family meal and we were very well taken care of. Our waiter looked after us very well and gave us all a dose of humour by asking if we wanted "American hot" or "Indian hot". It was very appreciated that they discerned how hot you wanted your curry. I would recommend "American medium" if you like... More

Cafe Roti has the best Indian chicken dishes I have ever tasted. Our family travels from the Tampa area once a week, and we always stop at Cafe Roti. The butter chicken melts in your mouth.

During our June 2015 Florida college visit trip, we ate at Café Roti in Lakeland, Florida. Café Roti was the only Indian restaurant that we found in Lakeland. The staff was good and food was tasty. We ordered Lassi Mango, Samosas and $9.95 lunch specials (Chicken Curry, Beef Kabab, Chicken Masala). The lunch special included soup, beverage, entrée, and dessert.... More

I had never had Indian food before. My daughter told me about cafe Roti and I had my doubts about trying the restaurant. All I can say is the lamb with butter sauce is easily some of the best food I've ever tasted in my 45 years of life. I would say it is the best restaurant food I've ever... More
