With Ramadan coming to an end in a few days, I started to think (more like, dream) about all the delicious food I would get to indulge in again at normal hours of the day. My staple morning fried eggs with an array of seasoning (follow me on snapchat to see: Halal.Girl ), a nice fillet steak with all the buttery peppercorn sauce, a slice of sourdough toast topped with melty truffle brie; ah, my life is starting to come together again! As you guys will be getting back into the routine of lunch, I remembered a lovely little gem I discovered a while back and forgot to mention – The Kati Roll Company.

The Kati Roll Company is based in NY with several branches out there, but has brought a tiny little one over to Soho. It’s known to be a popular option amongst businessmen on a quick lunch but they also provide a great breakfast on the go. I guess what really drew me here though was that it reminded me of home and how Mum would treat me to a roti spread with butter and sprinkled with sugar – delicious!

The Kati Roll Company

It’s a simple, no-fuss concept. You’re able to choose from a variety or filings that come wrapped up in a deliciously, buttery paratha, or whole wheat roti if you’re watching the waistline. Perfect with a cup of masala chai.

I admit, the rolls didn’t picture that great BUT you can use your imagination a little to help.

We decided on four options:

The Kati Roll Company Unda Roll
Under Roll £2.75

Gooey fried eggs and stringy melted cheese, all wrapped up in a whole-wheat roti. I can imagine this being a nice protein-packed way to start your morning, plus the accompanying green chutney was great for dipping.

The Kati Roll Company
Shami Kebab Roll £4.25

A soft patty made with spiced lamb and lentils had been smooshed into a roll and served piping hot. As an avid shami kebab lover, BW was a massive fan of this and thought it hit the spot.

The Kati Roll Company
Chicken Tikka Roll £3.75

Decent flavour but I felt like it was lacking a little in the spices you’re familiar with, especially in chicken tikka. It had been cooked well though; succulent and juicy.

The Kati Roll Company
Beef Tikka Kebab £4.25

My favourite out of them all was the beef tikka roll; soft and tender beef pieces that had been smothered in chutney and rolled in a flaky paratha.

Overall, the bill amounted to £20 for two, so £10 each, but they have increased their prices since my last visit so keep this in mind when you visit. The Kati Roll Company is a good option for a quick bite when in the area. It’s affordable, comforting, and can be healthy depending on your menu choice. It’s literally a hidden gem – hidden amongst the streets of Soho – so keep your eyes peeled!

    Agree it is great to find halal desi food next to oxford street. You can get nice desi style masala chai as well and it tastes so good when u r tired

  1. They are lovely, but over-priced, so only can be had as a special treat. Also be aware there is no table service
