One of Toronto’s premier places for drool-worthy roti is closing up shop after 25 years.

Gandhi Roti has announced its impending closure in a little storefront note to customers. Roger Yang of Avelo snapped a photo of the notice to share the word on Twitter.

“After 25 years of business in the Queen West neighbourhood, the time has come to say goodbye,” reads the restaurant’s note.

“The past few months have been very trying for our family business and due to the financial uncertainty of COVID-19, we felt that it was best to close our doors permanently.”

Gandhi will be closing on June 30.

The emotional replies to Yang’s post promptly came pouring in.

“This was an institution,” one person wrote, while another offered: “Noooooooo.”

Some commenters asked if there might be a way to support the restaurant and allow it to continue operations.

At this time, neither the restaurant’s social media nor their websiteĀ offers any indication of whether or not the owners would accept financial support from customers.
