Birthday dinner for my wife. All COVID safe and pleasantly set out. Nice touch with welcome drink and food was good. We have ordered takeaway previously and found that to be better but this was still quite good. Nothing done for the special occasion which was a little disappointing and also our packed food got thrown away and so they made some more but only to the small leftover portions. If you make the mistake and try to sort it then really this could have been better.

Visited Silantro for my Birthday with my partner as I’d heard good things. I wanted somewhere locally that had 1) a good ambience, 2) great food full of flavour, 3) a varied drinks menu. Then a rooftop bar and restaurant was the icing on the cake! We had an outdoor table and caught the sunset during our dinner with a cocktail in hand and DJ playing in the background. There was a weekend offer on as well so to top it off we also got 15% off and it all made for a great Birthday without having to head into London. Not forgetting the food: I recommend the dynamite shrimp, masala fries, salmon tikka, lamb chops, keema naan. Since dining we went back again, it was delicious a second time..

Booked a table via opentable for myself & my partner, they didn’t have a record, so lucky I had an email. There was a private event going on outside, they discussed it amongst themselves for Atleast 5 mins trying to find my booking before someone came over & said they are fully booked inside so I can sit outside!!! It was 7pm, windy & cold! I said no, so They sat me inside. I ordered lamb chops, Hakka noodles, chilli paneer, rosemary chicken tikka, keema cheese nan & prawns. Nothing stood out with flavour, we ate a little & took the rest home. Whilst having our 2nd drink, the waiter said at 8.20, we have another booking so can you sit outside!!! Awful service & will not recommend at all. We only went there to try the food for possibly our wedding.

The food was exceptionally good, tasty and well prepared. Friendly reception and attentive staff. Lots of space between tables and high roof line, so great for being COVID resistant. The owner need some socks and could use some social distancing skills.

First time dining-out after lockdown lifted and it was great re-building a social life whilst being Covid safe! I’m glad I ventured out. The location is lush. True definition of dining with a view! Food was amazing too: tasty, non-greasy & filling (without that heavy sluggish feeling). I’d go back.

We thoroughly enjoyed our second visit to Silantro. The food was amazing! As the evening was a little damp we sat inside, having sat on the veranda on our previous visit.

The only downside was the loud ‘club’ music. The venue is trying to attract a younger crowd, which is a pity as this would easily become a firm favourite for my friends and me.

Had a good time with friends. I'll recommend you don't go with families as the music is really loud in doors.

They have opted into the eat out to help out which helps cause their prices are quite expensive but the quality is good so you don't feel like you're eating any only Indian food

They do halal options too which was good for my family.

The chili paneer starter was OK, just a bit too chili not a fan.

The gobi machurian was excellent, crispy battered sweet sauce. Excellent!

They forgot our masala fries unfortunately!


Had bhuna for mains and I enjoyed that with laccha paratha.

Also tried the lamb chops, well cooked a d good flavour.

Avoid the rosmery chicken unless you like bland flavours.

Staff are a bit all over the place, the serving staff are separate from the greeting/payment staff.

Some people just stand around and are not sure what they are doing besides some executive management. Seemed abit silly.

The environment was great, beautiful space and warm atmosphere. The starters were amazing and portions sizes were generous, however, mains were a let down. Lamb rogan josh was very salty and when I mentioned this to a waiter and a new portion was bought out and tasted exactly the same, just a little more watery.


The staff were very friendly and welcoming.

On arrival we were immediately greeted with the warmest of welcomes at Silantro, our entire evening was filled with great music, mouth watering dishes (personal favourites have to the broccoli, palak chaat and the dynamite shrimp)
Each dish was curated and presented with the utmost attention to detail with taste to match!

The decor was impeccable and truly felt like you had arrived at a grand south asian festival underpinned by class, music and a true family run experience.

THANK YOU to the entire Silantro team, this was not our average “curry night” but more like a glamorous night out on the town where our dishes and cocktails were as good as the music... EXCEPTIONAL!

We sincerely hope this PopUp turns into a permanent gastronomical experience!

Food was spot on, views amazing, music very very cool. If you have the chance to go, you absolutely must take it. If the weather is nice sit out on the terrace and watch the sunset... The bhindi (okra) was probably the best I've ever had, but honestly all the dishes stood out as excellent. The butter chicken was perfectly cooked, and the tandorri king prawns were amazing. Staff were attentive, genuine and friendly. By far the best dining experience I've had for a long time. Covid prevention measures were taken seriously and adhered to, but were not overbearing or distracting.
Go! You will not regret it!
