Tropical Desires: Worst West Indian restaurant in Toronto

This must be the wose west indian restaurant in Toronto. We were tired of waiting in line at Burrito Boys, even though those burritos a absolutely the best in town, when we saw this new roti shop. Usually west indian restaurants all share the same recipes, however, this one : Tropical Desires at 224 Adelaide Street West, did not. I have no idea what they are thinking. We ordered 10 rotis. 8 chicken and 2 goat. They were all awful! our 8 chicken rotis were full of chicken carcas. Just not a one here and there, about 1/2 a cup of bones and cartilage! Which amounted to 1/4 of the size of the roti. The taste was also a major issue, the goat was just as vulgur. I have never in my life had something so disgusting that I couldn't even swallow one bite! I was not alone. all 10 of us had the same uncontrollable convulsion. We all ditched our meals and headed out for something else. From what I hear around here, we are not alone. I guess next time, long lines mean better food. If you do want to try this place, i suggest you eat at the restaurant, just so that they can see your reaction. Maybe only then will you get your money back.
