Worth EVERY Penny

Yes it's a little bit pricey for lunch, but it's is worth every penny, if you're into great tasting food.... I can't wait to go for dinner. You would spend nearly this for the better fast foods... The service was very pleasant. ( This is NOT "fast food" ) Service was as expected for the meal... read more

Once I heard that this restaurant served lamb, my friend and I decided to try it. We were NOT disappointed! Each bite was better than the last and the surroundings were interesting. We will return for more next month and recommend it to anyone who craves something different.

I couldn't really find anything to fault this place on, but neither could I find anything great to say either. It is the only place in the area for Indian food. During our visit the service was average, as was the atmosphere. I thought the wait for dinner was a bit longer than I might have expected, but then they... More

I have never tried Indian food before until my dad made me. It is now my favorite restaurant! Try the butter chicken, it is the best! BTW, I am 10 years old and love cafe roti

This was my first visit to this restaurant and will most likely be my last. I walked in at around 2 PM for lunch there was no other customer in the restaurant besides myself. I was lead down a hallway into a very dimly lit dining area and seated. The server took my drink order and did not return with... More

Great restaurant with amazing fresh food. Staff is very helpful in explaining different items and making suggestions if you aren't familiar with Indian food.

I currently live in Gainesville, FL for college but when I come home to Lakeland, I always make a point to work in a visit to Café Roti. I've been to several Indian restaurants around North Florida, but none of them have matched the quality of taste and great value as Café Roti. You can't beat the lunch special-- amazing... More

We travel to Lakeland often, but just found out about this restaurant. We started off with hummus and naan, both of which were fresh and melted in our mouths. My husband and son had beef and chicken curry, and asked for it to be seasoned hot. The dishes were wonderful. I had a yellow lentil dish--dal fry, which could not... More

The staff here will ALWAYS make sure that your experience here is exceptional! Food is amazing and service is always perfecto! People who might say otherwise have no palate for authentic Indian cuisine. Staff is exceptionally receptive to individual levels of heat and make sure they get it right every time. On top of the fact it is a tremendous... More
