Harden's survey result
“In an unlikely location” east of the City, Cyrus Todiwala’s brightly decorated HQ delivers “time and time again”. “No ordinary Indian, the varied food is prepared with panache and extraordinarily skilled mixes of subtle flavours”. Service is “excellent” too, and the worst complaint amongst the many reports we receive is that “it’s a bit pricey”. Events are a regular feature here, and “Cyrus is very informative and entertaining throughout”.
“Every mouthful is a joy”, say fans of Cyrus Todiwala’s “airy and bright” (somewhat “eccentrically decorated”) City-fringe Indian, where “extremely attentive service” is a hallmark, and where “the man himself usually does the rounds in a clubbable fashion”. The “wide variety of unusual Parsi dishes” – “quite different food to standard Indian fare” – “are spicy rather than just hot (though you can have that too)”.
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”).
Café Spice Namaste Restaurant Diner Reviews
"Excellent Indian food - away from the tourist traps nearby"
"Had not been for a year or more. Standard was very good."
"We enjoyed a pre-theatre meal and wished we could stay another hour or lived near enough to make an evenng of it. Imaginative and proably authentic Indian cooking and service that couldn't be bettered."
"Subtle flavours which don't kill your tastebuds. Also a wide range of options for both carnivores and vegetarians. Well presented and executed dishes. Cyrus personally visits each table which is a nice touch. If you are lucky he will also talk to you on the way home which he did with us after bumping into him in the street."
