Restaurant details
Reviewed November 2, 2011

Found this place by chance as it was a block from the metro station during a frantic day of site seeing.

Since a lot of the restaurants in Washington are pricy we needed to give the budget a break but were not ready for hamburgers. This appears to be a chain.

They feature a selection of chicken, steak or vegetables on a sandwich, salad or plate with sides ordered as you push your tray down the line. You can selection different toppings like Spanish Eggplant, baba Ghannoush, cous-cous, feta cheese, etc.

The servers were not surly, but they were not very helpful in deciding what each dish was. I’m not sure if they knew what was in what they were pointing to leaving us to figure it out.

You get a selection of sauces to put on your creation, and we both had the very spicy Zhug sauce. I highly recommend this as it was hot in flavor and well as temperature.

The chicken and steak were done perfectly with many tasty spices. The eggplant, cucumber salad and baba-ghannoush were very flavorful. I’ve grown to expect blandness in these dishes other places, but Roti did it right.

When I hear "Mediterranean" I always think Italian, Spanish or Greek, but I would say Roti has a more Greek, Turkish, Persian taste. VERY GOOD! Their selections are a little slim, but it is all worth it. The prices are very affordable too. The service is fast.

I got the chopped chicken salad and had my choice of additional toppings. For $10.45 I got that and a soda. The other reviewer is right-the Concept is very Chipotle. Washington must lvoe this concept because 7th St. in Penn Quarter has an Indian version and Dupont Circle has an Asian version, I hear.

Roti is very similar to Chipotole, but you build a Middle Eastern meal instead of a Mexican one. Healthy and tasty.
