You know that when a place is called Roti Chai - literally 'Bread' and 'Tea' - it's implying a stripped down, back to basics approach. Despite its humble name and very reasonable menu of Indian street food classics, Roti Chai is fun, upbeat and a joy for the sense with its industrial chic walls and paper menus, with Indian brands given the retro makeover and even being sold by the counter.
Thankfully, the food is neither middle-of-the-road goop nor pretentious high-end crockery art. The railway lamb curry, for example, is flavourful and tender and crunchy snacks like bhel puri are rightly celebrated. Small plates are a given - the crab and fishcake is delicious, and this being an Indian restaurant, vegetarians are well-catered for. For the hungry, larger (and thus, more expensive) plates are available.
Those who have travelled anywhere remotely ethnic will no doubt bemoan the prices but all in all, for the quality of food, they're not bad. You're looking at £10-15 for a decent dinner, which, given the vibe and fun factor, is pretty good.
The location is also a factor in its appeal - in a quiet mews discreetly tucked off Oxford Street, it attracts a vibrant and young crowd of fun-lovers, pre-drinks partiers and curious foodies.
