You'll get the point after reading the comments from some of their satisfied customers.

But this is more than just a restaurant. Because it offers free Internet, many customers arrive with an appetite and a laptop or other electronic devise. If you peek over their shoulders you will see all sorts of interesting things. One evening there was a group of about six young adults mesmerized and very animated while they watched one of their friends apparently win big a an online slots game he was playing at one of the many us friendly online casinos you can find on the web. At first we all thought that they were watching a video game, but as the atmosphere became tense at the table and then they all erupted into cheers, hugs, and back slaps it became obvious the player had won a big slot pot. Amazing. I think of online slots as a game in which the player loses more than he/she wins, but not in this case. One of the waitresses asked what online casino he was playing at. It was a US friendly site called SlotoCash (in case you are interested) that he had joined via an online website called Online-Casino-Party. That name seemed appropriate, since these folks were definitely partying on Gloria's Caribbean cuisine after their friend won!

Great food. I feel they offer very authentic Caribbean flavor and texture in the dishes. Had the stew chicken with plantains, rice and peas. OMG! Mouth-watering goodness. Plus, the yummy grapefruit juice was unlike anything I've ever tasted ~ sweet with a hint of spice. Delicious!!!

Gloria's has the best tasting roti in New York. Hands Down!!!
Awesome Curry Chicken meal!

Gloria's is a no-nonsense standout in a heavily Caribbean populated neighborhood. Get the perfect Roti whether it's the goat, shrimp or the conch and wash it all down with a honey iced tea.

The oxtail soup at this Crown Heights fixture draws customers from Harlem and beyond. Don’t miss their doubles- Sylvia's offers the best in the neighborhood.

In my opinion Gloria's has the best vegetarian pumpkin roti in Brooklyn, hands down!

Gloria's chicken rotis are on point... Those roti shells are perfectly made... Yummy & Delicious!

This place may be the best substitute for authentic Caribbean home-cooking outside of the Caribbean. You've got to try the rotis and curry chicken, and don't forget a sorrel or mauby!

The Pelau (peas & rice) is over the top....

Doubles are amazing!! Could eat a dozen!

Boneless chicken rotii was the best.

I visit Gloria's for mostly for roti (buss up shot) which are really good!
And they are my Favorite spot to get stew beef, rice, peas and macaroni pie YUM!!!

Love all their roti from the chicken to the curry goat curry shrimp. I find that their dinners are great & the mauby & grapefruit juice. Best Trini roti spot around. It reminds me of back home.

Not Familiar with Roti?? And Just What Is Callaloo or Doubles?


The food of the Caribbean is influenced from many countries including India from which ROTI is adapted. Gloria's prepares a number of roti dishes using what is called a Dhal Puri Indian-inspired flat bread. Gloria's offers their roti with some type of meat (goat), beef, or poultry curry or with vegetarian options (potato, pumpkin and spinach )wrapped inside it. In the West Indies, the term roti may refer to both the flat-bread(roti) by itself, as well as the popular street food item, as found at Gloria's, in which the roti is folded around a savory filling in the form of a wrap.

CALLALOO is a popular dish that originated in West Africa. The main ingredient is a leaf vegetable, traditionally either amaranth (known by many local names, including callaloo or bhaaji), taro, or Xanthosoma. It is served in different variants across the Caribbean. Callaloo can vary depending from which island the recipe originated. As an example: Trinidadians and Dominicans primarily use taro/dasheen bush for their callaloo, although Dominicans may also use water spinach. On the other hand, Jamaicans, Belizeans and Guyanese use the name callaloo to refer to the amaranth plant.

DOUBLES is a common street food found on the islands of Trinidad and Tobago. Basically it is a sandwich made with two bara (flat fried bread) that is filled with channa (curried chick peas) and then topped with mango, shadon beni, cucumber, coconut, tamarind, and extra pepper sauce. Delicious!
