I transferred to St Thomas as a chef with a hotel company and my wife and I lived on STT for 5 years from 2002 - 2007. One of my fondest food memories is having discovered this place and Rotis on my own walking around....More

My veggie roti was certainly large enough to share. But I refused to do so. Why? Because it was the most delicious and savory meal I’ve had in years. They should change the name of this place to Ideal Roti. I wish Ideal Restaurant was...More

First, not actually Roti, but curry was decent. Price outrageous. We got the tourist shaft. Don't go if you are a tourist. True roti does not come wrapped in a wheat tortilla anyway. Go to BVI
