Roopali is a great choice for travelers to Hiroshima and anyone looking for good Indian dining in the area behind Hiroshima station.
Roopali’s owner has worked in Indian restaurants in Hiroshima for many years and is now the happy owner of this great restaurant. The taste of the food is always delicious. The quality of the cooking and calibre of vegetables, spices and other ingredients is noticeably good. They also have quite good, friendly service. If you are dining as a family it is also a great choice as they give out free toys with every kids set meal. It is also fun for kids to watch the chef making nan bread through the viewing window.
There are a wide variety of curries and tandori dishes available on the dinner menu ala carte. There is also a wonderful Vegetarian or Meat eaters Thali (Indian curry set) available for around 2,000 yen. The menu includes quite a few non-meat curries and side-dish options for vegetarians, there are also fish and seafood selections available. Meat dishes on offer include beef, pork, tandoor chicken and mince.
I highly recommend the thali if you like Indian curries and have a big appetite. It includes two kinds of curries, salad, nan, rice, dessert and a soft drink. I always get the refreshing Lassi yoghurt drink which goes well with spicy curries. If you are with a group, ordering a few different types of curries- a dry curry, palak paneer (indian cheese and spinach), a cream curry and a lentil Dahl curry provide a nice variety of different flavors. Complement this with different types of Nan and a plate of yellow Turmeric rice and your taste buds will be in heaven.
