A small restaurant tucked away in a cosy corner, this place has good Indian and Malaysian food. I tried the dosa - a traditional Indian dish. It was big, tasty and crunchy. if you are walking in on a cold day, try the masala tea, it will surely pep you up!

Small Malaysian/South Indian restaurant near the CBD. We were a family of 4 that came on a Friday night and it was crowded. Typical Malaysian ambiance. Good front of house - friendly, attentive in spite of being busy. But unfortunately...that's where the positives end. The food itself was not good. We started with Rotis and chicken and lamb curries for... More

We came here for a lunch on a wet day in Wellington. The restaurant smelled like a South Indian place should...and the food did not disappoint. We had a "Super Special Feast" off of the lunch menu that was really a southern thali. Everything was well spiced and very tasty - a real bargain at $13. We also had a... More

Tasty Roti Chenai for an appetizer and a sampler platter which my husband and I shared. Nicely presented and delicious to taste. Great variety on the menu. Reasonably priced.

Went for a Friday dinner and quite enjoyed the food. The Roti Chennai starter was quite tasty. A small portion of chicken curry and parantha cut into pieces. For main course, we tried Masala Dosa and Chicken Rengdang. The Masala Dosa was quite authentic in terms of taste. The sambar and chutney that came with it were quite nice. The... More

Dining alone or with friends the Roti Chennai never disappoints. Delicious veg and non veg dishes from Malaysia/South India. Don't expect a fine dining experience- just inexpensive good food.

I went to this restaurant expecting roti, and I sure got it. A delicious garlic roti and butter chicken. The butter chicken itself was probably the best butter chicken I have ever tasted, and when the menu said garlic roti, it really meant it! Powerful and filling flavour! I was super impressed.

Good voucher on GroupOn and the Roti Chenai starter was nice, however we ordered a chicken korma and butter chicken and they both tasted exactly the same! No coconut milk in the korma, and both curries were very oily. The clumps of chicken were not nice either.

Roti Chenai has been around for quite a while. It has plenty of competition these days with new Malaysian Style Restaurants opening almost every week it seems. There were three of us for Lunch. For a starter we ordered a couple of Rotis and a small bowl of mutton curry. The rotis were excellent with a crisp flaky texture. We... More
