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

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.
