Chef and founder Sugen Gopal opened his first Roti King in Euston in 2014. For 8 years the restaurant has served its iconic Roti Canai at affordable prices to foodies in the know. In 2022, Roti King will launch a second site in South London’s Battersea Power Station.
Sugen Gopal was born and raised in Ipoh in Malaysia, where his parents’ love of authentic Malaysian cuisine was passed down to him via the family business. The success of the restaurant in Ipoh and his entrepreneurial flair led Sugen to bring his food to a wider audience. After a move to the UK, Sugen created the first iteration of Roti King at Oriental City (now Bang Bang Oriental) in Colindale.
After the site was shut by developers, Sugen took the opportunity to open his own restaurant in Euston. In 2014 Roti King opened its doors; no signage, no real menus at first, no airs and graces, just an incredible, authentic and accessible product. Following a rave review in The Guardian the same year, Roti King was cemented as a must visit foodie destination for those in the know.
