Kati Roll Company Review, London

One rainy afternoon a few of us headed towards Oxford Street to try The Kati Roll Company after a few good recommendations.

The Kati Roll Company has two branches one in New York and the other where we went in London, just off Oxford Street on Poland Street. On entering Kati Roll it is small, a café feel to it with just a few tables if you want to dine in. The walls are painted in orange which is the theme and decorated with old Bollywood film posters, which I loved.

Although It was very busy when we arrived and only one person taking orders, the queue system is a bit of a shambles, we were not sure which side was the ordering and which was the waiting, so we just stood anywhere. One positive is that it is very quick and you have the option to take away or eat in (if you get a table).

So what is a Kati Roll? As the website describes it’s “A spicy mixture of meat and vegetables rolled in Indian flat-bread.” After looking through the menu there are bout 13 different Kati Roll’s and they also have a daily special where you can buy two for a given price.

We all decided on getting a takeaway, so my selection was the Aloo Masala Roll (£3.25) which included spicy mashed potatoes with tomatoes and green peppers.

Other two colleges opted for the Achari Paneer Roll (£4.25) which included Indian cheese in a spicy chutney. And the other was an Unda Chicken Roll (£4.50) which included chicken tikka and a layer of beaten eggs.

So the verdict…I enjoyed it, the Indian flat bread was lovely and light, not at all greasy and the spicy potato filling was lovely. Although it’s a good size my filling was small, so I could have easily eaten another, and would definitely opt for the daily special of getting two rolls next time. My colleagues thoroughly enjoyed their wraps too.

If you want something quick, spicy and don’t mind waiting in the queue then the Kati Roll is a good choice, it also makes a good lunch alternative to the regular sandwiches and wraps. It was great for us and even a place for the famous where we spotted BBC News reporter Riz Lateef waiting in queue for hers.
