Awesome food! I was a bit worried at first, but I was pleasantly surprised! The day afterwards, I went to Roti Palace, and instantly regretted it. I'm not too big on meat, so I recommend the potato and chickpeas. I also love their rice and...More

Knowledgeable and nice staff very willing to explain what Roti is. My wife and I split a shrimp while the other couple we were traveling with had the goat. Food was excellent and they had great local drinks. We had the Sorrell which was fabulous.

Possibly one of them funkiest 10 best places to eat in Saint Thomas. Naim and Anita took this place over about 2 years ago and it just keeps getting better and better. For great local food, it can't be beat!

On a side road that was actually not far off the beaten track, but small, dark and only a few (6-8) counter seating options. So hot and dank, did not venture in and not really an Indian restaurant, as told by a Indian shop keeper....More

We ate here twice as the food and service are excellent. I loved the goat curry with beans, lentils, and rice. The owner very personable and the police eat there. The Roti are huge and well seasoned.

It took us a few tries to actually find this restaurant but we did it! And once we found it, we were very happy with the food we received. Ideal offers several kinds of meat but because we don't eat meat, my husband and I...More

If you're looking for a place to sit at a casual table and enjoy a meal, keep looking. This little hole in the wall is THE place to get authentic Roti on the island, but the seating consists of about 8 feet of narrow counter...More
