Hott Shoppe is probably one of the most trusted places to get curry after 4 pm. The curry mango, channa, pumpkin, chicken and buss up shot that i had was not only filling (I couldn't eat all in one sitting) but delicious!!

Love the curry mango and paratha skins. I would usually buy these items for travel. The curry / roti are okay also. Customer service isn't the best!

When I first came to Trinidad this was the place to go for curry. of late I find that the curry is "watery" and needs to be more flavorful. they have a lot of choices and I will continue to buy from them so well worth a visit.

Writing this with foreigners in mind. Pretty good roti wrap with soft "tortilla" filled with crushed split peas. Good tasting curry chicken, goat, beef or shrimp. May not be the best on the island but has been consistent and probably the best in the west. A good first try for a foreigner. One of of my Go To places.

As a take away roti shop, Hott Shoppe reigns supreme in the Northwest. The service is good, the food is fast and taste is incredible. The prices are also really good if you just want to order roti skins or paratha. I thought the portions were a little smaller than they used to be, but after eating I was more... More

Couldn't visit Trinidad without having a chicken and potato roti and Hott Shoppe did not disappoint. The wrap is fresh and flavorful and the filling was just right, just enough seasoning and not overwhelmingly hot or spicy.

It is definitely one of the best Roti in the Port of Spain. The roti was full of flavor and the surroundings was really clean. The best part is that they are open till really late in the evening which is a plus. During the day you may have a long wait, but its worth it.
