Stopped in here before the theater. Nice Indian atmosphere with carved panels covering the walls and ceiling and complimentary furniture. The place looks the part. Even though there were only a few tables occupied, we waited about 10 minutes before we our waited came over to see if we wanted anything like drinks or appetizers. The service was slow and not very attentive. Complimentary papadam came, room temp instead or hot out of the pan. Ordered plain naan and saag paneer (pureed spiced spinach with paneer cheese). The Saag Paneer was served in a institutional looking steel bowl. It was OK but not as fine as this dish can be. Also it was not very warm -- maybe sat under the lights too long before serving. My wife thought the chardonnay served was a cheaper one than she ordered. I didn't have them but noticed any dishes with meat in them were $17+ which I thought was expensive. And given the quality of the saag, I wouldn't expect them to be great.

There's got to be better Indian food in Seattle. Roti isn't bad, they simply don't seem to make an effort. They seem to strive for average and achieve it.

Everything we had at Roti was good if not special. The decor is rather typical for an Indian restaurant but put together in a way that make Roti quite pleasant for dinner. Service was fine and the owner stopped by to ask about our dinner. (Nice!) The plain naan was excellent and we also tried their special naan, which seemed to surprise the wait staff. I guess few people try it! Too bad, it WAS special -- with chopped cherries and nuts!

Indian food is abundant in Seattle and this place offers better than average food. However, not worth the effort and patience as their service is extremely slow and lacks courtesy. The owner seems to be so cocky with absolutely no attention to people waiting for a long time. I saw people sitting next to us get up after 20 minutes and get the menu themselves.

The service staff was average, but the owner was very helpful. The food was cooked to perfection from start to finish. The portions were larger then we expected. I had the tandori chicken which could easily feed two people and we ordered two portions of rice, when one would have been plenty. The interior decoration has had a lot of effort put into it and as a result you experience a little piece of India. I liked everything about this place and can't wait to go back!

Located close to the space needle, this place was highly suggested by several local people. The menu had a lot of selections and the food was very good. Not the best I ever had, but we were happy. Portions were large, we could have split one dinner. The nan slection and quality was 5 star.
