Roti-Mataba Review

Housed in a century-old building across from Santichaiprakarn Park on the Chao Phraya, this little restaurant is where you'll find decent (though not innovative) Indian food in Bangkok. You'll be hard-pressed to find anything on the menu for more than B100. You can hear the roti (unleavened, whole-wheat flatbread) filled with your choice of vegetables, chicken, beef, fish, seafood, or just sweetened with thick condensed milk, sizzling near the door. Many curries, including Massaman—a Muslim curry that has a strong peanut flavor—are served at a steam table. Avoid the narrow downstairs dining area, which is unpleasantly hot and usually crowded; there's a more comfortable air-conditioned room upstairs.

    A must visit for lovers of great food

    I enjoyed a fantastic breakfast here before a walking tour of the Banglampu area including the famous Khao San Road. True, the portions are small but the prices are even smaller. The roti is stunningly good. I ended up ordering more and more. Definitely one of the best eating destinations in Bangkok.
