We visited this restaurant with colleagues. Food was very nice and reasonable price. I would recommend this restaurant for any one looking for good South Indian food.

Best dosa I’ve had in the US. Sambhar was really good but be warned it’s a little spicy! Coconut chutney was OK. Idli is better than other places but still needs to be fluffier.


We love eating at Porottas. Their unlimited lunch thali has an amazing variety of food and my 5 year old loves their chocolate porotta. The cheerful staff and the simplicity of the restaurant makes this one of our favorite restaurants in Roseville. Definitely recommend.

Great food! The owner whipped some authentic falooda style drink for us in the end. It was delicious!

This is the only restaurant I've ever eaten at in 7 days in a row in my life. That's pretty much all you need to know. This is by far the best and most aithentic Southern Indian food in Roseville and in my opinion the best food overall in Roseviile. Ask for a big bowl of Rasaam & tell them David sent you! I'm waiting outside of their restaurant right now for them to open up at 5:30... the food is that good. Samosas are out of this world. Salna is a must for the spicy foos lovers. Everybody that works there is so friendly, humble & kind-hearted. This is definitely one of my favorite restaurants I've ever eaten that in my life!

WOW! FINALLY we found fantastic Indian food in Sacramento! We didn't think it existed. We've tried sooooo many Indian food restaurants in Sac. The food is always heavy and greasy. Porottas was awesome. It's tasty and filling but you don't come away with that heavy over-eaten feeling. It's vegetarian, which my wife loves. But the owners told us they're opening another restaurant in Rocklin which will serve meat dishes, too. Can't wait to try it. In the meantime, Porottas rocks. The food is very delicious. The restaurant has a nice casual atmosphere - clean and bright. I highly recommend the spinach soup and the Masala Dosa. Perfect place for familiies and larger groups because you'll want to share! They're also available for delivery with Door Dash.

One of finest all vegetarian restaurant I came across after a recommendation from a friend. Its by far the best vegetarian place in the Sacramento/Roseville area with different flavours to its dishes that can be compared to any good restaurant present in India. Hailing from northern part of India, I know my paneer curries and how different the base should be. Any typical Indian restaurant (in Sacramento/ NorCal region) only has variety in their menu, not in looks of the dish or flavour (either it is tomato based or spinach based that is the only difference). But these guys, here at Porothas knows how one curry should be different from another and they give them the authentic taste. We loved their malabar parthas that was special of the day. It came with a super tasty panner curry. Along with that we tried the paniharan (6 pieces with coconut chutney & sambhar) and kuttu poratta. Every dish was soul satisfying. I have heard good things about their lunch Thali too. Truly endless supply of food (hot and delicious) Will definitely visit soon and enjoy their thalis. Do try them out. So worth it.

Whatever we tried was excellent! I wants to try out the unlimited Thali, but couldn't. Probably next time. I would certainly say that this place is worth a try knowing that Mylapore Roseville is closed now.

This, probably is one of the best South Indian restaurants, not just in Sacramento county, but in the whole Nor Cal region.The only other place which was reigning the domain of South Indian specialties was Mylapore (They still are), but this place is a league ahead of them in terms of quality of food and price (IMHO). We tried wide range of items. From Guntur Masala Dosa (the spiciest of all, and that is how it should be) to Poori, Vada and Uttapam. Everything cooked to perfection with the right amount of spices, as each South Indian food demands its own spice blend and heat range. They haven't dialed down on the spice and struck to maintain authenticity of the original food. They also have Lunch Thali, which by the way, is unlimited. With such a wide assortment of curries, sambar, daal and dessert, this would be my favorite item off of their menu. I tried the the flaky typical ceylon porotta with my meal, and I ended up binging on them as they are so properly cooked and right amount of flakiness. For those who haven't tried South Indian food before, this place should be a must go.

I and my husband have visited the place a couple of times. I am going to talk about my recent experience that deserves a one star review. I ordered a rawa masala dosa. The dosa was super soggy. In my experience, it should be crisp. I told them about the issue and they happily replaced it. Only that I had to wait for another 15 minutes while my husband's food had arrived. After the long wait, rawa masala dosa came again with masala on the side but it was the same - super soggy! The manager came and checked the dosa, agreed that they had used more batter than required, and hence it was soggy. He gave us the option to replace it the second time but we refused because we could not have done it all day. I ate one third of the dosa and we left. I would have liked a refund because it was a waste of money and time and also because that would have reflected good customer service. I would not ask for it because it is not about the money. I would think twice before going to a place that serve their dosas soggy sometimes. Update: Thanks for your response! But I'd like to reiterate that the dosa was not how it is supposed to be. It is not about my preference. Rava masala dosa is supposed to be crisp and mine was soggy. I would have definitely given Porottas another chance had I gotten a refund that day. But if giving another chance involves losing more money I'd pass. Thank you!

Probably the best Indian southern style food after a long time. The South Indian thali that we ordered was well presented, without compromising on taste or quality. Excellent choice of curries and parathas ( traditional Chennai types). Keep serving this way and I m sure Rossville community would coming knocking at your address. Do not compromise on this quality !! Great food worth 5 stars !!

Second time I have been here. Loved the samosas and 2 sauces. The other two dishes we tried were also very good. Next time I will try a soup. Only serves vegetarian food which is tasty and healthy.

Very good vegetarian Indian food. Everything we tried tasted amazing. They do get busy around lunchtime, so come a bit before noon or phone in your order to go. Prices are incredibly reasonable.


Stop everything you are doing and come eat here. Amazing south Indian vegetarian food! The people are extremely friendly and helpful.
