The Team

We are a family run Indian and Pakistani restaurant based in Edinburgh. Roti was started by Mohammed Din and his Sons in the late 1990’s. The decision to open the restaurant was inspired by the mutual love for flavour and passion for traditional cooking methods.

The head chef at Roti is Abdul Ghafoor who is a highly experienced chef and loves being ambitious in the kitchen, trying new flavours and creating truly mouth watering dishes. Our friendly team is managed by Sanna Mughal who shares our enthusiasm for authentic, delicious Indian and Pakistani cuisines.
