The roti as always is amazing and tasty. The selection of food is great, as is the beverage selection! Love the friendly service and the eclectic customer base that is in the restaurant. This is the go-to place for the best Roti in Winnipeg.

When I plan a trip anywhere, I spend considerable time looking at nearby restaurants. Our family's rule is we visit local eateries and avoid the franchised or chain restaurants. Famena's scored very high in the reviews and it was put on the list for a...More
