I've only been here once, and it was a while ago, but I was not impressed. The facilities and the service were ok but the food was not. I do like Indian food but the curry I ordered was way too salty. To the point that I couldn't eat it.

Fabulous lentils and curries. The nan bread is great. A great find in Polk County. Very excellent food.

The restaurant is very small and the food is great, but the homemade baklava is excellent. I think it is the best I have ever had! Be sure to save room for some if there is any left. She makes it fresh and it probably doesn't last long.

Although this is sadly the only restaurant serving Indian cuisine in the Lakeland area, it could be a very nice experience for those wanting to try it out for the first time or for those that have already enjoyed this traditionally spicy and flavorful dishes. Their menu holds the usual vegetarian, chicken and lamb dishes, all the usual combinations of... More

We've now been here twice - once for dinner and once for lunch - and we were pleased both times. The first time for dinner, our waiter was brand new, in fact this was his first day. Without his telling us, we would have had no clue that he was new to the restaurant. He answered all our questions and... More

Have eaten here a number of times for both lunch (generally packed) and dinner (not so much). It's consistently very good food and very good service. We always get garlic naan at every Indian restaurant. It's very good here. I always get the lamb vindaloo, again, at every Indian restaurant. It too is always very good here. My wife has... More

As my first time visiting Cafe Roti, I decided ordered the Vindaloo Lamb with medium heat. The lamb was good, not fatty at all, and rice cooked perfectly. However, the heat was very mild in my opinion. Not what I had come to expect from my previous experiences at Indian restruants. The description on the menu said that the dish... More

This place is a delight! It is great to break away from the ordinary and there are not many places to do that in Lakeland. Everything I have ever had has been delicious! I love their samosas and pakora. The weekday lunch special is a steal. I highly recommend stopping in and checking this place out!

My husband and I visited Cafe Roti for the second time in the past few months. Again, nothing but positive things to say. Excellent, attentive service even with a busy lunch crowd. I love spicy, hubby goes for mild. Neither of us were disappointed although his Butter Chicken was a bit better than my Madras Curry chicken. Try the excellent... More
