Very Addicting and the biggest reason we offer rides to the airport all the way from St John( Coral Bay!)
I’ve tried almost every type, and the Rotis are legit, soft, and these are huge and filling.
I absolutely don’t understand the miserable one star...reviews.
Ideal never serves tortillas, they are REAL HANDMADE ROTIS, and the flavor is Trini style.
It’s warm, flavorful and delicious . I’ve always been warmly welcomed and had huge servings and I usually order around 6 because SO many friends want me to bring one back to St. John. I gladly pay $50 RT in a car barge and drive all the way to that restaurant because it’s THAT good.
So, if you are on vacation looking for “Indian” food, remember where you are and that this is Caribbean Trini style Roti, and that a ONE star review is terrible for a small business.
These rotis make two meals for myself IF I eat the way I’m supposed to. UNFORTUNATELY, I gorge on it and eat the whole thing in one sitting and am so full.
Ideal is simply DELICIOUS!More
If you're looking for a GREAT roti, come here! My husband is a Trini and this was one of the best we've had in a long time. Best on the island, I will say that. We each got a boneless chicken roti and their peppa...is amazing, too. This is a take away place so if you're looking for a sit down type of place, this isn't it, but the food is delicious!!More
My wife and I got here when our cruise ship docked in St. Thomas - easy to find, open at 11:00. We ordered one shrimp and one conch on dhal puri roti. My wife is Trini and an excellent West Indian cook, so her compliments...are given sparingly. Even she said it was 100% verifiable, authentic Trini roti, lots of shrimp, great curry flavors, and they even sold us some hot sauce and kuchela. This restaurant is counter-service, can be made up to go, friendly folks, MUST NOT MISS THIS ONE!
We'll be back when we are in St. Thomas.More
Fellow travelers told us how fresh and good the rotis are here. We tried it for lunch today. We had a goat roti (try it before you disrespect it!) and a boneless chicken roti. They were phenomenal. Local food. Local business. Support the islands and...the wonderful people who call them home. ❤️More
We were visiting from nyc on Norwegian breakaway... we had made few stops to some other islands and wanted to feel and taste some home cooked food and asked a few locals and everyone said this is the place to eat... the food was very...flavorful i had goat curry and roti, my mom had curry chicken and roti all was very good, and customer service friendly the owner was welcoming and we had a few laughs before leaving ... i would recommend this place anytime of the day for great food...More
We're in Downtown St. Thomas and couldn't find any authentic Carribean food. We asked a cab driver for real Carribean food. He told us that this restaurant is about a 7 minutes walk away. We walked in there and it's a small restaurant. But the...food is a big deal! The flavors! The meat is tender and the roti is perfectly made and the stew is rich and soulful. I got the roti goat and it was so good that I had to go back for another order to take home. My wife and children had other entres and they liked their meals too. I would have been dissapointed to go back to US without the true taste of the island. I'm glad I walked in here.More
Local family restaurant which focuses on Rotis. They do it right. Flavors are spot on with tender savory fillings and soft roti bread.
This place is a must visit. It's great as take out or as eat-in. The goat roti is the best I've had....We were a party of 6 and we all loved our food.More
Ideal Roti is incredible! I eat there at least once a week. Their spicy goat roti is fantastic if you love spice. All of their options have a non spicy option. The owner is very friendly. They do a great job of getting your food...out quick.More
