“Satiating lunch, awesome ambience, kind host”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 May 2014

A lovely little joint at Fort Kochin, very comfortable and simple. After being addicted to the lovely meals served at The Treasure Trove Homestay in Wayanad, we were in search for a place we get some great meals. Our choice was right. The owner of the restaurant a generous guy walks around taking care of your every need. Paneer masala and the bread served was tasty and easy on pockets. Highly recommendable and worth a visit.

“Great Value, tasty food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 May 2014

This is a fab little place in Fort Kochi. The Kati roll is out of this world.

A non licensed restaurant, a great treat worth the visit

“Unpretentious, delicious north-Indian food.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 May 2014 via mobile

We ate at Dal Roti twice while in Fort Kochi and tried a vegetable Kati Roll, Paneer Masala and Paneer Jalfrezi. All meals were very tasty, as were the accompanying breads we tried.

The setting is very simple (wooden tables, minimal decor, basic table settings) but the restaurant feels comfortable and welcoming. This is especially due to the presence of the owner, who can be found at a side table scribbling out bills and keeping accounts up to date and is quick to offer a smile or advice on menu selections. (Menus also feature a glossary, which is very helpful!)

Here, the focus is on honest, hearty, traditional meals without the frills. A highly recommended meal out!

“Great - we went back!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2014

Dal Roti was perfect for what we wanted - good value and tasty food, close to our hotel, in a friendly environment. And we got it all. We had two children with us and the owner was so friendly and helped them choose their meals. The service was incredibly speedy, and the food very tasty. We didn't bother to find anywhere else the following night - we went back for more.
