Arrived at 11:45 and within less than 10 minutes, there was already a long queue, showing how popular this place is. When they opened at 12, the restaurant immediately filled up. It was my first time trying Malaysian cuisine in London, and I'd say the quality here is decent, but Birmingham offers better options. The restaurant is cramped, with narrow seating, I'd recommend coming with just two or three people. Also, you can't linger for too long as there's constant pressure to vacate due to the long queue outside.

240407 Lucky with no lines at 1300 Saturday and got a table for 5. (No mutton today QAQ)

Nasi Goreng is so bountiful and the rice is well fried and coated in flavor. Nasi Lemak has beautiful spicy shrimp paste.

Roti canai is fluffy and stretchy as always. Beef rendang is so rich in flavor, tender but not too greasy.

Milk tea tastes legit.

I can now confirm that my memories from five years ago still stand. Will happily come back when there’s no crazy line.

This place is alright if you miss hawker centre food, but be prepared to queue and dine in close quarters with other patrons. I’m not sure the food wowed us enough make us want to endure the inconvenient dining experience, however.

I enjoyed my mee goreng overall, which was unctuous and flavourful, aside from the prawns, which were tasteless. The dish was only mildly spicy and manageable if you aren’t tolerant to spice like me. I also got a hot teh tarik, which was comforting. On the other hand, my husband’s roti with chicken curry was not as impressive. Although the roti was hot and fresh, it was bland. Moreover, the amount of chicken in the curry was meagre and the sauce was gritty instead of smooth. Our orders also didn’t come out at the same time, so my noodles got cold.

We came on a weekday for lunch and got lucky with our timing, waiting less than five minutes for a table. The restaurant is down a flight of stairs and is very small and cramped, which explains the constant queue. You will likely be sharing a table and bench with another party, but they do put a Perspex divider up to give the impression of separation. Still, the arrangement is troublesome because the tables are positioned so closely to each other that those sitting in the aisle have to stand up to let people in and out. I’d rather not be bothered like that when I’m trying to eat.

Overall, the food is okay, but this isn’t the kind of dining experience for me.

Roti King in London is where the magic of Malaysian cuisine happens, especially if you're into the flaky deliciousness of roti canai paired with tasty curries. This spot is all about authentic flavors and dishes like nasi goreng and char kway teow that will have your taste buds doing a happy dance. It's pretty affordable, too, which means more yum for your buck!

Be ready for a bit of a queue, though it's the kind that moves quickly and ends with you feasting like royalty. Yes, it might be a tad crowded and the service brisk, but it's all part of the adventure. And for days when you'd rather lounge at home, they've got you covered with delivery options.

In short, Roti King is the go-to for a lively and delicious experience that promises a culinary trip to Malaysia without leaving London. Just remember, it's walk-in only, so maybe get those comfy shoes on.

Not as good as before. I’ve ordered for collection from this branch before and have also been to the Battersea roti king before numerous times. This time however I felt slightly underwhelmed. The Roti Canal; the chicken curry lacked any flavour and felt old and reheated, the roti was also dry. The Nasi gorang was nice as ever. The fried chicken side is not worth getting.

It wasn’t worth is considering there’s always a queue outside.
