Roti King

11 January 2024: Canai have another - the kingdom expands

Introduction


They say good things come in threes and, with a third Roti King now open in London, it's hard to disagree. Yes, a third Roti King follows the original in Euston and a second in the Battersea Power Station redevelopment. 


Pulling into the sidings on Lower Marsh just south of Waterloo Station, this London favourite is bound to pick up a lot of passengers passing through and as a destination in itself. With a similar menu to its other restaurants, our previous reviews are worth reading to read more about that, but for now, here's our headlines on this most recent addition.




Venue


More akin to the slightly rough and ready subterranean original, Roti King Waterloo has a very casual, street eatery vibe with colourful murals on the wall, possible in homage to the nearby graffitti tunnel on Leake Street. The kitchen is on display at the back of the restaurant a la the other two branches, but the exposed brickwork and plastering does give a slightly unfinished impression. This isn't as pleasant as the Battersea establishment, not least due to the back of the restaurant being a long way from natural light.

Service


Service was friendly and efficient if not hugely notable. The restaurant was busy and the staff were accordingly occupied, but no long waits or complaints from us.
