Description: Old meets new at Norwich���s Roti, a sublime Indian restaurant situated just five minutes from the city centre. Great care has gone in to the creation of the Roti dining room, at one time a traditional pub but now a clean, sleek space in which modern comfort is as central to the design as the look, intended to bring to mind the old gentlemen���s clubs of the Empire era. Booking is essential as Roti tends to get very busy, especially on Friday and Saturday evenings when locals flock for food before letting their hair down in the bars and clubs in town. It���s easy to see why this place is so popular, not only is the service friendly but Roti���s food is superb, earning plentiful good reviews from internet reviewers and five stars from the Norwich Evening News. Banned from using artificial additives, the kitchen relies only on natural ingredients, some imported from India for authenticity, to produce flavoursome and authentic Bangladeshi and Indian dishes.

“A nice Indian-Style meal.”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Nine of us turned up 'on-spec' at 6:30 on a Saturday night and asked for a table. This proved no problem to the establishment, chairs and tables were arranged in minutes and we sat down. It was a standard you now expect in Indian-style (I say 'Indian style' as quite a few of the meals are distinctly Bangladeshi in nature) establishment. All the meals were well-received by all, there was a scattering of the usual suspects (Marsala, Tandoori, Tikka etc) and few of the more unusual Bangladeshi meals chosen. Everyone enjoyed it and it was mostly empty plates going back. Service was very good and the staff happy to join in some banter with us. . Well worth a return visit.

“My favourite restaurant in Norwich”
Reviewed April 3, 2013

I find it hard to believe some of the negative reviews on here. We've been going to Roti every 6-8 weeks since not long after it opened and, as vegetarians, the range of food is good and the quality is consistently top-notch. Can't comment on the meaty stuff but the veggie is good. Always hot, service excellent, friendly, no hassles, good price, tastefully decorated without any apparent deterioration and generally good atmosphere. Whenever we really want to go to the best and most reliable restaurant in Norwich we go here.

“Won't go again”
Reviewed March 24, 2013 via mobile

Have been a number of times before and enjoyed the food and evening. The place has deteriorated , food was very runny with hardly any meat and service was so slow it was embarrassing.

“Manager with a bad attitude”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

May be we caught the manager on a bad day but his attitude was so bad that we left without eating. Also they seemed to be inconvenience with the presence of a child. Would not recommend this restaurant for its' service, cannot comment on the food. To be fair, the waiters were very nice.
