I ordered a goat roti, and it was absolutely wonderful. The roti bread was tasty, and it held together with all of the goat meat, veggies, and sauce. I would definitely recommend Ali's for a great meal!

Food was fabulous... the rotis were HUGE!!! Very filling, great curry. The open kitchen allows guests to see their food being prepared before them. The lineups attest tot he popularity of this place, well deserved.
