Harden's survey result
For 25 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. This year diners have submitted over 60,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK.
Cyrus Todiwala’s “genuine, exotic and intriguing” Parsi cuisine “relies on spices rather than heat (though you can get that too)” and delivers some “perfect flavours”. “The man himself is very jolly as he works the room” at his Whitechapel HQ, where there’s “always a cheerful welcome, and great service”.
Cyrus Todiwala’s “vibrantly decorated” Indian is a longstanding bright spark in the “culinary desert” south of Whitechapel; service is “jolly” and his “original” and “delicate” Parsi cooking remains a distinct “cut above” (“the specials are always worth a try”).
“A gem in a dreary City side street”; Cyrus Todiwala’s “interesting Parsi take on Indian food” – with great game dishes, and “favouring spicing over heat” – maintains the long-standing acclaim for this “friendly” stalwart.
Cyrus Todiwala “continues to weave his magic”, at this “quirky” City-fringe veteran – his trademark Parsee cooking is “sophisticated” and “different”, and it’s charmingly served in a “funky” and “colourful” high-ceilinged room.
Café Spice Namaste Restaurant Diner Reviews
"A fantastic Indian meal in east London and so different to your local restaurant here we experienced such an amazing array of stunning Indian flavours and spices that enhanced each dish. On arrival you get a nice friendly greeting then you get to see the menu and believe me you want to order everything as it all sounds fantastic. We in the end decided to go for the Tasting Menu which includes 3 glasses of wine and was also told that it is actually unlimited food so when you say stop they will then serve you Dessert to finish . The one thing is that you don't know what you get until it arrives which to us was great . We managed to survive 10 courses before surrendering and having Dessert . So it all started with popadoms & dips followed by Samosa , potato cake , fish fingers , a sweet and crunchy rice , duck , chicken , prawns with spinach , salmon and cheese then to curry dishes of chicken and lamb that forced us into submission so we're then served dessert to finish to which on was a delightful spicy creme brÃ»lÃ©e. Most of the dishes were brought to us by our very friendly waitress Martina ."
