Roti King - London Euston

Roti King is tucked away behind Euston station and upon first glance looks like some shady 24 hour fast food joint, but looks can certainly be deceiving. As I walked down the stairs I could see every seat in the house occupied. The place isn't that big and can certainly get crowded. We waited for about 10 minutes outside and looked at the menu before being seated. 

For lunch I chose the lamb roti canai and cold tek tarik, which is Malaysian tea with condensed milk. Being Vietnamese I do love ice cold tea/coffee and this was so good. The perfect drink to wash down the curry. What stole the show was the roti, it was buttery, light, crispy and didn't make me feel bloated. Prices are reasonable for what you get, I would happily come here again and try something different as the dishes all looked great. 

The downside of Roti King was the service was so slow, we waited around 30 minutes for our roti canai. There were tables which ordered after us and were served food before we did. Also one of the staff behind the counter shattered a glass tumbler and it flew everywhere. There was glass on the floor and by my foot, not once did anyone come around to check the floor or pick any up. They only replaced the food on the table closest to the counter after being prompted by the customer.
