Emporium has recently welcomed a new addition to their diverse dining precinct, Roti Chenai – southern Indian dining.

On any given night Emporium is overflowing with diners trying out the various cuisines the Fortitude Valley shopping and dining precinct has to offer. Emporium is such a thriving centre in the heart of Brisbane, it’s no wonder father and son team, Richard and Jayden Rajasekar decided it was the perfect location for a new Southern Indian restaurant.

“We have been scouting for the best location in Brisbane for more than 12 months and decided that Emporium was the perfect position for Roti Chenai due to its eclectic range of dining and lifestyle offerings,” Richard says.

Many Brisbane based Indian restaurants focus on Northern Indian menu choices, whereas Roti Chenai serves a combination of Indian favourites with traditional Southern Indian food. Roti Chenai derives its name from the words roti (Indian bread) and chenai (South Indian city in Tamil).

The father and son team have a restaurant of the same name in Wellington, New Zealand, open for 21 years it is highly successful and has won numerous awards in the highly competitive Wellington dining market.

“We are looking forward to introducing Brisbane to our authentic dishes handed down through our family for three generations. We have built our success and pride ourselves on our fresh, convenient, competitively priced and, most of all, our delicious food which is sure to deliver a new taste sensation and have you coming back for more.”

Roti Chenai will be serving up traditional southern Indian dishes and a selection of Malaysian style food for dinner seven days a week, you can also grab a delicious southern Indian lunch Monday to Saturday.
