  • Ali’s has been around for a long time! My family has been going to Ali’s since before I was born and the food has always been tasty with a homemade flare. The location isn’t very nice and doesn’t feel very safe but we still drive a great distance to eat an Ali’s roti. The aloo pie is great; they have good Palourie with tasty sauce. The chicken shrimp and goat roti are excellent. The peanut punch is sooth and creamy and they also have great doubles. I always enjoy everything I order from Ali’s . The last time I went the roti stuffing was a bit scarce compared to what it use to be, but it was still good. The street parking can be a bit tricky at certain times of the day with the street car tracks and limited spaces. I would recommend Ali’s to everyone and I am sure we will continue to go there for many years to come.

  • Order: Roti, palourie, ice cream, doubles

  • Absolutely a great place to go and eat roti!
    Perfectly spiced and super fresh. You can tell that the food is made with love! All the rotis are great, love the goat curry and the doubles are to die for!
    If you want to try something new and different you should definately go!

  • I was there a number of years ago, I hope they cleaned up the bathrooms downstairs.

    The condition they were in was horrific.

  • LOVE ali's - a lot of people like other roti shops - bacchus, vena's, etc. but i've tried them and they pale in comparison. my absolute favourite is the pumpkin spinach roti, which is hard to find anywhere else. also their tamarind sauce is great, and their homemade ice creams. usually i order a sahina while i wait for my roti to be made. the place is the BEST and i drive across town to get there.

  • Order: roti - pumpkin and spinach

  • Everything was amazing, the soup was authenic homestyle, and the paratha was as homestlye as a restaurant could get. Recommend to all. I am a frequent customer.

  • Order: I ordered an oxtail soup along with a chicken paratha.

  • This was the best roti I've ever eaten in Toronto, and I've been to a lot of other roti shops. I'm also from Trinidad. This is as good as any good roti shop in Trinidad. Maybe even better. Watch out for the spicy food though. Even if you order without pepper the food still has pepper in it.

  • Order: Mainly Indian-Trindadian and Indian-Guyanese cooking with some creole foods from both places aswell. Pretty good variety. A lot of caribbean snacks and caribbean drinks available too.
