Curry night at Roti

I have to admit that I’m a something of a curry fiend – on many a Saturday night I can be found in one of the Norwich’s many curry houses eating myself stupid.

That’s why I headed to Roti a couple of weeks ago. It serves both Bangladeshi and Indian cuisine, so it has a few different dishes available, which is why I wanted to give it a try.

My initial impression was that Roti isn’t at all like a traditional curry house – all flocked wallpaper and darkness – it’s tastefully decorated in black and red, with ambient lighting, so you can see what you’re eating and who you’re talking to.

I tried the Papaya Chicken, because it sounded rather exotic and I was pleased that I did; it had large chunks of juicy papaya stewed in the a spicy (but not hot) curry sauce, with moist and tasty chicken. I had it with Bombay Aloo (potatoes) and a garlic naan, which was delicious.

All of the food is rather reasonably priced too, so although we ate a huge amount and spent the best part of the evening in there, we didn’t feel like we’d been extravagant.

If you’re thinking of heading to Roti, I would recommend booking in advance because it gets very busy.

Hi, I'm Lucy. I've lived in Norfolk since 2001 and in that time I've grown to love this fine county. From the city of Norwich, to the countryside villages and sweeping coastline, there's so much to explore and hope to share my experiences with you here.
