Anika’s Kati Roll Grill – Doomed?

Anika’s Kati Roll Indian doomed in Hoboken – or just renovating?

A bunch of Hoboken411 readers were wondering this evening what the deal with Anika’s Kati Roll (618 Washington St.) was.

They had respectable reviews in the past…

Reader Jeff said: “It looks like Kati Roll on Wash & 6th is doomed–paper on the windows, etc. Shame, I liked that place, but I must have been the only one. It was usually empty. Good fast Indian takeout. The kati rolls themselves were something you don’t see anywhere else in Hoboken and they did a great job with the more standard Indian fare. Plus they always had Bollywood dance clips playing on the TV. Here’s hoping it’s not another falafel place coming next.”

Still haven’t received a response to emails sent this afternoon to the owners of Kati Roll… So is it “another one bites the dust” here in Hoboken?

2/19/2010 Update:

All you Indian Food fans rejoice! Anika’s Kati Roll Grill at 618 Washington Street is opening up on Saturday, February 20th!

Previously thought to just be “take out,” we now learn that they have seating from 24 diners inside as well! And in case you don’t know what a “Kati Roll” is: “Kati rolls are Indian flat breads or parathas with marinated spiced fillings with a green coriander condiment spread, tamarind sauce, onions & other accompaniments.”


Welcome to Hoboken!

Over at the doomed Wireless Solutions location at 618 Washington Street, a new “take out” restaurant is apparently planned. According to the construction permit on the window, at least – a “no seating” eatery will be arriving soon enough.

Any ideas of what this place might be? Something different, good, unique perhaps?

Though I am not a fan of kati rolls, I find the food here better priced and just as good as the other Indian restaurants in town. I can’t seem to avoid $25+ at either of the same-owners India on Hudson or Karma, and the food at West of Hudson just isn’t very tasty. The portions may look small b/c of the way they are served in trays as opposed to individual containers, but it’s ample.


I tried this place when it first opened and thought the kati rolls were horrible. Of course I gave the place another chance a few months ago, and I thought the kati rolls and chicken masala were very good. Maybe the first time I went was a fluke? My only complaint about the way they prepare their food is that it is almost too rich….I could taste the cream in the chicken masala and dal, and it almost seeemed a little too sweet for my taste. Not a great place to go if you’re on a diet imo. I still like Karma the best, but I will still go to Anika’s because I think the food I’ve tried so far has been delicious.


I heart paneer. 🙂


i love this place – i’ve only tried the paneer roll (which is so flippin’ delicious), so i can only speak for that, but i’ll definitely be back to try some other things. i for one hope it lasts!


I had a Kati Roll the other day and I thought it was pretty good. It was a little unexpected that the paratha (flat bread) was made of what seemed like corn, not whole wheat flour. I guess I was expecting something more like nan bread, not what tasted like an enchilada. Still and all, I’ll go back again and try a few more selections on the menu. The fact that these are wraps makes it a good “on the go” meal, and I love Indian food!
