A fantastic night, the restaurant spoiled us on our first anniversary.
As ever cafe spice has exceptionally tasty food, great service a cold beer! What else can a man hope for!
Food menu was varied enough. Portions were small. Was tasty though and staff were lovely
Another lovely meal at Cafe Spice Namaste. We had the Kitchen Menu because we always struggle to choose from menu. It which was more than enough food and it was all delicious. It's a good opportunity to be introduced to some new tastes and flavours. It's also a good mix of different dishes. I've marked ambiance down slightly only because the restaurant was almost empty when we arrived. It filled up later and had a much better atmosphere.
Food is always excellent and seasonal specials a real treat. Great staff with the knowledge to explain the dishes
As always the team at Cafe Spice produce exceptional food in really comfortable Sutton Dinh with just the right level of service.
The food was absolutely delicious. We tried the vegetarian sample menu and it was very good. The service was excellent as well. Highly recommend it for foodies.
Have been a regular customer for over 20 years and NEVER disappoints. Great food, warm welcome, excellent service.... Go for the tasting menus, Kitchen or Gourmet and enjoy the journey!
Always a great night out with fantastic food.
Second time at Cafe Spice Namaste. Booked table for opening time due to a later engagement. Wish we could have stayed all evening. The food and drinks were excellent and our waiter was exceptionally helpful explaining the menu and the format of the dishes. The traditional Goan food is first rate and the service was timed to our needs.
Superb authentic Indian food with excellent friendly service
Plenty of space beteeen tables not crammed in - light, airy , spacious and comfortable to talk. Staff helpful and the food of good quality . Different types of regional Indian dishes which made for an interesting experience
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.
Never have a bad experience here! Highly recommend anyone going here, a hidden gem that is worth exploring! More to offer than just a great meal!
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.
