Roti Indian Bistro - San Francisco

When brothers Ash and Rajiv Gujral planned a new Indian restaurant, they wanted to create neither an ultra-formal dining room nor a tiny hole in the wall venue. ROTI Indian Bistro marries casual, contemporary styling to classic Indian cuisine. Designer Susan Gujral created a warm, modern space with dramatic color, light and imagery that portrays the rich aesthetic essence of India. The chefs take diners on a culinary tour of India, offering a taste of the North in the Tandoori meat dishes and hints of the South in the vegetarian curries. Fresh breads are available from the tandoor, a mesquite- fired clay oven unique to Indian cooking. Local and organic ingredients blend with traditional Indian spices to create a diverse fresh, menu. ROTI prides itself on the dining experience - at this popular new addition to the vibrant West Portal neighborhood, refined customer service from the attentive staff and fabulous food have established a higher standard of dining for the area.

"I read Open Table reviews and chose to dine at Roti Indian Bistro. My first time. Recipes were definitely a cut above all others I have had in San Francisco or elsewhere. Spices and fresh ingredients and health conscious preparation. Bravo. I will return."

"I really enjoy Roti. It is Northern Indian cuisine and delicious. I feel incredibly fortunate that it is only a few blocks from where I live. I recently tried and incredibly popular Indian restaurant that features southern Indian food. It was quite good, but I still prefer Roti. I do realize that southern and northern are quite different, but Roti is my preference. The owner always visits our table and is very kind and warm. The waiters are always helpful. There are so many dishes that I can recommend. The Tandhoori Murgh is incredible as well as the Matar Paneer. We always get the regular nan as well as the delicious nan with fruit baked inside. There is also a rice dish with fruit and nuts that the whole family loves. I would encourage everyone to try this wonderful restaurant. It is a real treat."

"We really enjoyed our dinner. Fresh ingredients, great service and a little twist to cooking traditional Indian fare. Portions are ample for a sharing food fest. Really loved the spicy asparagus side dish. Friendly service. I recommend making reservations."

"The food in this restaurant is amazing. Good mix of traditional Indian dishes and amazing breaks. Service is decent. The restaurant is on the small side so definitely make sure you have a reservation. The restaurant also offers delivery to some local areas... which I plan to leverage. Overall, a great expereince."

"We ordered the Roti's feast and all the items we tried were fantastic. Tasty, fresh and with a characteristic homemade flavor. Service was very attentive and the manager checked with us even if the level of spiciness was ok. I asked for more spicy and he brought me some homemade sauce to wake up my buds. Great experience overall, I'll become a regular no doubt."

"We always have a quality meal at the Roti Bistro in West Portal. The owner always drops by the table to make sure everything is up too par."

"Just had another great meal at our favorite Indian Bistro. Each month they feature the most delectable and interesting specials, usually based on the owner's own recipe. In January the special appetizer was Brussels Sprout chips, in February, a roasted cauliflower dish and this month it is sweet potato chips. The food is always hot and delicious and served attractively. The wait staff is very responsive to client timing needs and I never, ever feel rushed. I love the regular personalized table visit from the owner who makes sure that everyone who eats at Roti is happy."

"I think so; the food is amazing and plentiful, its a cut above your average indian restaurant
the dishes are superb and created with care, the monthly specials are wonderful and make
repeated visits a new adventure.
The staff are very attentive, and its clear that the owner cares about his customers dining experience ...
needless to say its very popular, so I recommend using opentable to secure a table.
Also note, its close the the Empire Cinearts theatre so you can grab a movie and eat great Indian before or after!"

"Our whole table had the whole roasted cauliflower. So delicious! Thanks for bringing it back on the menu. I appreciate the option of an interesting veg dish from the specials. Always quality food at Roti."

"We always love eating here. The colors, the smells, and the flavors burst out at you. We got our usual goat cheese naan, murgh makhani (butter chicken, yum), two lamb dishes (josh rogan and the tandoori), and the cauliflower special (which was a wonderful complete head cooked just right in a delicious sauce). Roti is my favorite restaurant. Service was attentive as usual."

"You can certainly find the usual dishes here. Go for the specials when available. The crab cakes were yummy! My tandori prawns were excellent. My husband had the butter chicken which he loves. They have an extensive food menu. The wine list is wanting."
