I've ordered the food is so so. The aloo roti is the best. good luck if you try to order take out. Like most spots on the upper west side, the people answering the phones, taking orders are not the the sharpest ones.

I ordered it last night and I live couple blocks and a few avenues away and it got here quick an was still hot. But I was disappointed by the taste... I had the chicken malai frankie and the roti was good. the filling needed a lot of salt and pepper and they put raw onions inside that over powered everything I probably won't buy here again .

I've been going to this place for years. An amazing, filling meal for under $10. Their cilantro sauce is amazing. There's only a wrap-around counter with about 5 benches, so don't bring a big group. Do yourself a favor and order another to go and have a snack later! They taste great hours later, or even in the morning after being refrigerated.

Delicious invention of what could be done with a piece of roti bread. Always a positive attitude. Excellent value for the price.

I generally get the potato and sweet pea, the chicken malai, or the aloo gobi. They smother all the frankies with that green sauce, which makes most of the frankies taste pretty similar. Fortunately, that taste is really really good. The rotis are a nice flavor and texture. Pretty good value, considering.

First off, it was good and I got what I paid for. I want to put that out there before saying that it wasn’t what I expected it would be…which was totally my oversight. I’m used to Caribbean-style Rotis and didn’t make the switch over to Indian in my head. Silly me! So if you’re of the Caribbean mindset like me, keep that in mind before you head over to Frankie. I ordered the Lamb Boti. It was decent. The roti bread itself was really nice. It was thick, firm and flavorful. The lamb was a cross between actual lamb meat and what you get at a Halal truck. Odd…but I got used to it. The meat was tender enough for the price…but a bit firm for my liking. The veggies were al dente, which I usually wouldn’t like in a Roti, but was thankful for because it added more bite/flavor to the roll. That being said, they obviously need to kick up the level of the marinade spices…because there was nothing exotic about the lamb flavoring, as the menu leads you to believe. Fortunately the cilantro sauce they lather the filling with was tremendous! It would make a decent light-lunch or big snack…but when the guy slapped the roti on the grill, I knew one Roti wouldn’t have been enough to fill me. So I order the calamari, which was awesome! Next time I’m in the area, I’ll head back for that alone. They freshly bread a healthy portion of calamari right when you order it. Nothing frozen here! They flash fry it just long enough to keep the calamari super tender yet thoroughly cooked. THESE spices were truly exotic AND made the dish visually appealing due to the Henna-red tone of the spice mixture. I’ve never had calamari flavored like this. I was in heaven! And the cilantro “mayo” (there is so much cilantro it’s more like a runny sauce) was a perfect compliment. The calamari made it worth the 50 minute bus ride I took from work to try the place out. They were nice guys and had me out the door within 5 minutes of placing my order. Good to try for shizzles and giggles if you’re already in the area…and might be worth the bus ride again to try some other Roti variations…or to check out their daily Roti Specials…but DEFINITELY worth the trip for the calamari!
