Staff is more than accommodating to Amy special requests you mau have. We have to travel to the other side of town for this food... read more

The first visit was in November 2014 and I thought I'd found a real treasure. The food was good and just as described and the service was excellent although the place itself lacks any ambience as there are just Formica topped tables and harsh lighting. On the second occasion I ordered exactly the same dish which turned out to be... More

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 presented. Was fairly busy... 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
