I went one time to the Roti in SF and had such a fantastic meal that I decided to try the one cuz it's closer to my home - and was not disappointed!!! My husband is Bengali and he loves the food there (better than his Mom's, but he'll never admit that!)
Now we have a new place to go to take our out-of-town guests!!
Great place, fantastic food!!

Goat naan, biryiani, etc. Chef is Nepalese. Really get distinctive and unique flavors in all dishes. Very high end Indian. This is what the middle & upper classes eat in India. Not the street food that passes for Gourmet Indian food in most of the local restaurants (except for Gaylord and Amber).
This is one of my FAVORITE Indian places. If you're looking for traditional down home Indian though - this is NOT your place. If you love gourmet food, and the subtle nuances a chef can create while balancing spice with the flavor of the main ingedients - this most definately IS your place.
Traditional recipes and spices, with fresh, almost always organic ingredients, and the subtley only a brilliant chef can bring.
A great atmosphere, and wonderful staff makes this place great for a date night or conversations with friends over a nice glass of wine.
Classy and laid back.
I highly recommend both locations.

The vegie samosas was really good. But then came the main courses. All of them where REALLY salty. The ""fish of the day"" was not fresh but fishy tasting. The sauces on the food - korma - was tasty. The breads were good but some were over cooked - burned. Service was ok to poor. The food was so salty we needed more water and the waitress never came to refill the glasses. I won't go back for the price it isn't worth it.

The food is excellent, the prices are incredibly reasonable, the atmosphere is perfect, and to top it off, the staff is great.
We ordered 2 appetisers and one entree, along with naan bread and basmati rice. There was definitely enough food for 2 people. For starter we had veg samosa, and chicken tenders in a spicy coating - delicious!! We then shared chicken tikka which was by far the best chicken tikka I have ever had.
One waiter had asked us if this was our first time to their restaurant, and it was, so he offered us a complimentary dessert, another waitress give us a free glass of wine, the owner of the restaurant give us a complimentary port wine and also a complimentary beer!! Never in my life did I feel so well looked after at a restaurant.
I will definitely be back here anytime I take a craving for some great Indian food. You can also order for pickup. I reccommend that you make a reservation in advance as they get very busy which in itself says how good their food is. After dinner you will probably need a walk and West Portal is a perfect place for a nice stroll. The overall experience that we had was incredible!
Definitely GO!! Try it out. I promise you will not regret it.
