Roti, a food group all to its self. Beef, chicken, and buffalo with fine Caribbean beer. A cozy warm environment and friendly staff, and kind owners. Not a very large restaurant, but it more then makes up in the fine dining and inviting, warm staff. Parking is not the best, but well worth the effort. Come and have your next... More

The food was great. We loved the rotes and the atmosphere was excellent. The service was fast and and friendly. We buy out rote shells there and are never disappointed. Can't wait Togo back.

I've been to 3 Caribbean restaurants in Winnipeg (each of them many times), and by a slight margin, this is my favourite. I think the tipping point is that I like the salad that comes with it. The hot sauce, which is served on the side, is quite good. If you happen to be closer to one of Famenas downtown... More

This is real authentic Caribbean food. Tastes great, and reasonably priced. My personal favorite is the Shrimp Roti.

We have only eaten in this restaurant a couple of times. It's a nice small hole in the wall, however, our kids are a bit too rambunctious for the small space. We order their rotis for take-out once in a while. The chicken and the chicken and beef are fantastic! Medium spicy is quite spicy so if you like your... More

Came here for the first time recently, and I wish I would have known about this place sooner! Everything was DELICIOUS. The service was fantastic. I am recommending this place to all my friends and family.

The booking was for 15 but only 10 came, did not effect our service. Great food, they go to the market daily and use fresh produce. I had the Goat (with bone) Roti..they made a special dessert for all of us and a even better one for the birthday gal.

With so many of Winnipeg's old favourite restaurants ( Alycias, Kelekisis ) closing in the North End I ventured over to Ellice to see if I could find something new and I wasn't let down by Tropikis. Ok it's nothing fancy but it was clean fast friendly and the Jumbo Roti did not disappoint. Will certainly return again.

I can't say this place is nicely decorated, they don't seem to care much about the design and when you first enter you don't expect much BUT the food and service are so amazing that you totally forget about the lack of decor. ROTI was DELICIOUS and MAUBY drink was DELICIOUS and WIERD <3 Wonderful experience. You should just get... More

I am a big fan of roti and so far the best roti in town. Good flavor and size. There was actually a lot of meat in the roti when compared to a lot of other restaurants that have more potato and less meat. Not just the taste of curry powder but could taste the different blend of spices. Will... More
