I am no connoisseur of Indian food, but I liked this one. We had variations of chicken with curry, tandoori etc. Everybody had a different one. 2 dishes were mild, 2 were medium which translates into American hot to very hot. My medium curry had just the right amount of heat. The rice was plenty and the tandoori bread was... More

Last time I came, I thought the mild was a little too mild, so this time I tried the medium, but it was too spicy for me. Live and learn! (and if you like spice, don't worry, I'm assured that it's lovely). So I'll stick with the mild. Their lunch is a great deal-- you get soup (always yummy!), rice,... More

My husband and I come here every so often for Indian food, because it's the only one in Lakeland. It's good, and we can always get a table. Some times the medium spice level is medium, sometime is very spicy. We always really like the food there.

An okay Indian restaurant. We tried it once, and wouldn't bother going again. Definitely did not like the fact that they pass around the same containers of chutneys from table to table, with dried up bits of food stuck to them. Not appetizing or hygienic.

Our waitress was extremely patient explaining the menu and options in English AND Spanish with my inexperienced and picky friends. The food was very good and the owner/manager came out towards the end of our meal to ask about our meal. If I'm in the area again, I would def eat there.

Very good Indian food but they do not give you enough rice for your meal. We ordered three meals and received one order of rice. Make sure to order an extra side of rice.

The staff and service was very good. The inside entrance looks more like a take out place but a narrow corridor leads you to a nice dining area. I found the food just average.

Looking for world-class Indian cuisine in Central Florida? Check out Cafe Roti in Lakeland. As a transplant from Boston and Washington DC where Fine Indian cuisine is a staple, I tried restaurants in Tampa and Orlando and none could touch Cafe Roti! Service is excellent and setting is intimate yet inviting.

Had dinner with my girlfriend. Second time I have eaten there. Standard Indian food. Inexpensive and tasty. Service was good. Casual dining. I would eat there again

I could eat their garlic naan every day. I got the beef in spinach sauce and chicken masala, the chicken on recommendation from our server (who I think was the owners wife.) The beef was okay, very uniform flavor, nothing special. The chicken masala though was heavenly. Light and flavorful, with a nice kick since I got it "hot". Next... More
