Roti Chai Review

Location: 3 Portman Mews South, just behind Selfridges food hall.

Wait on a Friday evening: About 20-30 minutes. Quite busy in the restaurant itself. 

Drinks: These were virgin cocktails. They were both pretty standard, yummy drinks. Nothing too fancy. 

Paani puri: yummy, like any Paani puri. The price was good for what you got.  Don't mind the pre selfridges shopping hand swatches. 

Papdi Chaat: pretty different from normal indian restaurants, the crunchy bit was at the bottom. A little bit too much yoghurt, but still nice.

Mini kebab burger, and railway lamb curry (which came with two roti's) - the kebab burger was bigger than expected, like a normal burger size.. it said mini on the menu so we were pleasantly surprised by the size. 

The curry was good, had a good taste, however nothing different to usual indian places. 

We also had the chicken lollipops (clearly too hungry to take a picture), which were like fried chicken wings with a hint of spice: nice.


Overall: 6.5/10.

The food was good, but let's compare to a very popular indian restaurant based in Central London; Dishoom. For a Central London restaurant, more innovation may be expected, however the prices weren't as expensive as Dishoom. The decor is pretty similar, and overall, a nice place to eat. The waiting time is also not as bad, and that's without a reservation. The food was good value for money - £40 including drinks. Overall, a nice place to visit, for a casual lunch/dinner. :)
