Ideal Restaurant

Ideal Restaurant is famous among locals and tourists alike for their roti, a Trinidadian dish of chicken, fish, shrimp, or veggies cooked with potatoes and chickpeas and served with a flaky flatbread. The staff is always happy and helpful, and the portions are more than enough to fill up the average customer. However, Ideal is a relatively small restaurant and gets busy quite frequently, so you may want to come early or plan to take your food to go.


Options for rotis or plates include: veggie, chicken (with or without bone), beef, goat, shrimp, and conch.

Ideal Restaurant tempts passersby with Trinidadian cooking so memorable that many who pass through their doors are immediately ready for another bite. This dining option's open during both dinner and lunch, so why not stop by?
