There are lunch specials that come with a salad, a selection of curries and dessert. The service is very good and the food is good, too! We go there from time to time for lunch and haven't been disappointed yet.

Went for a large family meal and we were very well taken care of. Our waiter looked after us very well and gave us all a dose of humour by asking if we wanted "American hot" or "Indian hot". It was very appreciated that they discerned how hot you wanted your curry. I would recommend "American medium" if you like... More

Cafe Roti has the best Indian chicken dishes I have ever tasted. Our family travels from the Tampa area once a week, and we always stop at Cafe Roti. The butter chicken melts in your mouth.

During our June 2015 Florida college visit trip, we ate at Café Roti in Lakeland, Florida. Café Roti was the only Indian restaurant that we found in Lakeland. The staff was good and food was tasty. We ordered Lassi Mango, Samosas and $9.95 lunch specials (Chicken Curry, Beef Kabab, Chicken Masala). The lunch special included soup, beverage, entrée, and dessert.... More

I had never had Indian food before. My daughter told me about cafe Roti and I had my doubts about trying the restaurant. All I can say is the lamb with butter sauce is easily some of the best food I've ever tasted in my 45 years of life. I would say it is the best restaurant food I've ever... More

Okay, Cafe Roti is also the only Indian Restaurant in Lakeland, but competition would be hard pressed to do a better job. The restaurant is located across from the road on the north side of Lakeland huge medical center. My daughter, granddaughter and I had dinner there last night, it had probably been a year since my last dinner. Gone... More

We have been eating here since the beginning of this restaurant! Never once been let down in quality or service. We come from the opposite end of town at least one time a week for this exotic food! Have tried everything on the menu and have our favorites but every dish is exceptional and extremely well prepared. Never one time... More

From the outside you might question your decision to try Cafe Roti. The inside lacks atmosphere but it is clean. However , the food and the service more than make up for the lack of ambiance. The sauces are various and each can be prepared to the degree of "hotness" you desire. Our group of traveling foodies have tried most... More

The first visit was in November 2014 and I thought I'd found a real treasure. The food was good and just as described and the service was excellent although the place itself lacks any ambience as there are just Formica topped tables and harsh lighting. On the second occasion I ordered exactly the same dish which turned out to be... More
