I used to work at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine (across the street from Roti Roll), and I can tell you, I frequented this place so much so I think the owner should've made a lifetime membership card for me. Roti Roll is affordable, full of all the good flavours, and surprisingly filling. Do not be deceived by... More

Hard to complain about anything on this fast food Roti Roll - Bombay Frankie restaurant. I went there to pick up a quick snack for my family. Ordered Chicken, Aloo Ghobi, Chana masala and Aloo Masala rolls. Each item was delicious. How can you wrong with the price of less than $5.00 each? Great food, low price and pleasant staff.... More

Roti rolls are mini Indian burritos with vegetarian and meat options. Three of us visited and got two of each of four kinds of roti rolls (two types of chicken, shrimp and lamb). They are small, so it is a good way to get a variety. We also got the hot aloo fries which I surprisingly really enjoyed, heavily sprinkled... More

I really don't like vegetarian food, but the frankies this place makes are very good. I had the lamb frankie and also a few of the vegetarian ones, all of them are excellent. The only problem is that sometimes the frankies are made too greasy. However, I definitely recommend you to try one.

If I wanted a jewish kinish would have gone to katz. The food was horrible...The samosa were the size of baseball filled with cotton and peas. Roti Roll did not live upto its name. Never again

Excellent quick and tasty eat. Rolls consisted of the roti wrap with a vegetable or meat filling. Very good value for money. Recommend to all!

We were heading out of the city, so this was the perfect quick stop for lunch. The best was the special, a spicy chicken lentil roti. The aloo gobi was a little bland in comparison, but they might have forgotten to put the spicy sauce in. The eggplant one was good.

I wandered over to this little spot thanks to other TA reviews. The roll was hot, tasty and reasonable. Not really set up as a restaurant with only 4 stools along a counter, but space to sit and eat was provided next door. I had the chicken roll with egg...just enough as I wasn't really hungry.

I love this place. Spend a few dollars, wait a few minutes, and you'll get an absolutely delicious roti roll to eat wherever you want. I love this place -- it's a favorite of mine. Be forewarned -- it's not really a restaurant, but it's great.

Delicious roti rolls -- Indian Burritos, if you will -- which never disappoint. Open late, if you're in the mood for a snack after the bar. My only complaint is that even the "spicy" sauce isn't all that spicy -- and I'm only half-Indian!
