    I took my Mum here on Friday (15th June) to celebrate her 70th Birthday, whilst we were visiting London for the weekend. She is a big fan of Cyrus Todiwala from Saturday Kitchen, so she had wanted to eat at his restaurant for a while. It did not disappoint. The staff were very friendly (especially Mrs Todiwala!) and welcoming. The ambiance was good, the prices were reasonable and the food was delicious. My Mum had a great time! Would love to visit again. Thank you Cafe Spice Namaste :)

    Although I no longer live in London we made the decision to return for a meal at Cafe Spice Namaste following a wonderful family meal some while ago. The staff were friendly, helpful and professional. I love spices but think that I must be more of a traditionalist when it comes to eating as I am not keen on "modern twists" or "a contemporary take" on a classic etc. The exception is, here. The food is wonderfully flavoured and superbly cooked. The atmopshere is wonderful and relaxed. My husband felt the addition of Mr Todiwalla's IPA to the drinks menu was inspired and that it made a perfect accompaniment to his meal. I could not fault the food or service. This was by far the best meal of our stay in London (which included a meal at a highly regarded 5* hotel retsaurant) and is definitely going to be central to our itinerary when we return to London next. I'll admit that I was a little worried initially, as I did think that it would be impossible to repeat such a wondeful experience as we had the first time I went there. I am so happy to say that I shouldn't have been worried as I have now 2 fantastic meals there to look back on and am planning my 3rd. I know that I haven't talked much about the food itself but for me food and ambience are equally important and tastes are subjetive. There are other ways to find out the details of the menus etc.. Thank you
