I always like this restaurant but the latest tinkering with the menu is not quite to my liking. Gone is the traditional Indian menu, no popadoms for a start, and in its place a small plates, tapas style menu. Which is fine if you want to share, and this time we did quite happily, mixing and matching. But we all had our favourites, which we always have, and it seems a bit silly if the day is coming when I have to order small plates of the same thing to get the main course size portion I know sometimes I will want. So the jury is out on the change in the menu, and I am not entirely convinced.
Amazing Indian restaurant!! Loved the food and the service was great. The portions are small which I’m not used to when I eat Indian food but everything was delicious so order a lot!!!
We really enjoyed the service and the extensive menu choice. The food was delicious and we really enjoyed that there was an Indian wine available which went very well with the food.
Visiting from the US every six months or so, we always try to get to Cafe Spice Namaste at least once a year. They always remember us and our preference, are always incredibly welcoming - and, of course, the food is spectacular!
Always a treat!
I have been coming here for several years and every bite is as hood as the first time! I often come alone when on business and and immediately made to feel like one of the family. This is truly one of the best places for Indian food and comfort at a very reasonable price.
Food and service were very good but we preferred the old menu.
Delighted with the experience. Brilliant food, ambience and service.
An old favourite which I haven't visited for over 20 years but which is largely unchanged in terms of quirky decor. The menu has moved in the direction of small plates but we enjoyed all those we sampled.
A cut above your bog standard curry house.
Excellent food and service.
We will return!
Fabulous food but the place is very cold. If your back is against the windows you will need to wear a jacket. Some heating would have helped.
Wonderful food! We let the waiter select the food and it was quite the experience. Good humored staff with a great ambiance!
Just the best place to have a curry in the uk
Great food, very nice staff
This is a popular high end Indian restaurant which serves excellent food. I had venison tikka followed by beef xacutie and a side order of Bombay potatoes, I started with popadoms and had 2 bottles of kingfisher. The meal was excellent with great flavours sand service was good. My only issue is that at £55, even with the quality of food, this seemed overpriced. However I will probably go back, just because the food is so good.
Although the food was good I felt that it could have been better spicing . Menu also bit dated need to take a look at lassan menu (Birmingham) to improve .
Absolutely awesome food and staff made the whole experience very enjoyable. It was lovely to meet our hosts Mr and Mrs Todiwala who took time out of their busy night to talk to us which was fantastic. Can’t wait to go again and would recommend to anyone!
Very special, not your every day restaurant.
Great flavors, nice food.
Best irish coffee in a long time :)
We had the tasting menu. It was excellent and just kept on coming. Had I known this was the route we were to go, I'd had fasted beforehand to do it justice.
Great dinner with friends, food was fantastic. Chef Todiwala even came out for a chat and photos!
Excellent venue, food, service. Our third annual visit and great fun. Loved the chutneys with the excellent papadams.
The London Hospital Dental Alumni
Really enjoyed our visit. The food was really tasty and there was far more than we could eat. Sadly we couldn’t take the left overs with us because staying in hotel for weekend.
I ordered the set taster menu for my friends, but as I am vegetarian I asked what was available for me. They custom made a vegetarian taster menu for me, which was outstanding. Can’t thank them enough. Highly recommend to all.
Excellent service and great food
Excellent. Une cuisine très délicate où les parfums et arômes se révèlent, sans excès. Un vrai plaisir.
Awesome all round - but then it always is. Cyrus was there too and always willing to chat.
Fantastic food with a friendly service
Lovely building but seating was a bit 'school room'
Staff were great, with lots of advice and on hand service
We were charged for too many drinks - nice wine though!
Food was really interesting and tasty
Lovely food. A little bit pricey.
Incredibly tasty food, great service, aromatic and generous portion sizes
Great food, brilliant service and good value for money. You always have an excellent dinning experience. Couldn't ask for more, unless they could move a little closer to where we live that is.
Really underwhelming, food lacks flavour and it’s completely over priced. There are many much more better value restaurants in London. 2 courses and 2 drinks each - £95.
Service okay, decor very mid 90’s.
Dear Sir / Madam, Thank you for your feedback which is really important for us in our pursuit for continuous improvement. We are sorry to read that you had an underwhelming dining experience. Would you please be kind enough to send us a copy of your bill to help us investigate where we may have faltered? We are particularly concerned as most other diner reviews have been positive. Kindly get in touch with us on firstname.lastname@example.org Thank you!
Always superb food it is the best Indian meal I have ever eaten and it is always this good
Amazing love it can't wait to re visit 😊😊😊😊😊😊😚
We had the most fabulous time on Saturday. Great atmosphere, attentive staff and of course the food was excellent. The whole evening was topped of by Mr and Mrs T both spending time talking to us, which for some of our party who were first time visitors, really was an unexpected bonus!
Can’t wait to return.
Never fails to disappoint, food is outstanding and away from the normal Indian menu of Chikken Tikka Masala and Onion Bhajis, authentic spicing, if you like Indian food you will love this place
Really disappointing considering the reputation and the Owner No atmosphere, indifferent service - the place feels like somewhere from the 50s' The food was awful especially the squid which was inedible and the mains were just gloop
Have been coming here now for a number of years. Food is always stunning and Cyrus and Pervin always make you feel welcome. One of may favourite places to eat.
The food was excellent and the service was great. Would definitely recommend the good but it was very pricey!
