Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

When you arrive at 40 Doric Way all you’ll see is scaffolding and ‘Euston Chinese’. But don’t start thinking Time Out’s failed you. You might think you’re lost, but the dark, dingy basement restaurant below the neon ‘open’ sign is the right place. The king you seek is inside, and like Elvis he steals the show with his fresh roti canai.

A type of flaky flatbread found at Malaysian hawker stalls, it’s not on the main menu here. So, skip the Chinese dishes (although the handful of Malay ones aren’t bad), and ask for the ‘Roti King’ menu instead.

The plain rotis come with curries (chicken/lamb/fish/lentil, all costing £5.50). We liked the warm, tangy fish option; or the ‘murtabak’, which has a dry meat curry sandwiched into the dough (£5). The mildly spiced lamb version came cut into thick squares and with a bowl of thin veggie curry for dipping.   

Yep, for Roti this place is a revelation. You might have been lost, but now you are found. Uh-hu-huh.
