Four Things to Know About Roti Indian Bistro

Established in 2005, Roti Indian Bistro coaxes visitors into its warm, inviting space at two different locations: San Francisco and San Mateo. Inside both, diners enjoy a culinary tour through India while feasting upon lunch and dinner specialties. Here are a few things to keep in mind when you stop by:

  • The food is considered modern Indian. That means curries are lighter and spices are less intense, but dishes don't lose the therapeutic qualities of traditional Indian cuisine.
  • Tandoor ovens are heavily relied upon. Though these mesquite-fired clay structures can't win "Employee of the Month" honors, they put in their fair share of work churning out roasted meats and fresh breads—including the addictive goat-cheese naan.
  • Garam masala is made in house from Roti’s own special blend of toasted spices.
  • Try cooking the restaurant's dishes at home. Recipes for some of the most popular dishes are posted on the bistro's website, including one for customer favorite, chicken tikka masala.
