Café Spice Namaste traces its roots to the day Chef Patron Cyrus Todiwala decided he wanted to become a chef, initially against his parents’ wishes. It was eighties Bombay and undeterred, Cyrus went on to study Hotel Administration and Food Technology at Basant Kumar Somani Polytechnic. Upon graduation, he began his professional career with the Taj Group in Bombay, where he met his wife Pervin, also a trained chef. 

Cyrus and Pervin moved to Goa, where Cyrus was appointed Corporate Executive Chef overseeing Taj Holiday Village, The Fort Aguada Beach Resort and the Aguada Hermitage. It was a big role, but in 1989 came a change of direction. Cyrus decided to leave the Taj to help restart a famous restaurant in Poona

An even bigger step was leaving India for London in 1991 Cafe Spice Namaste’s elaborate and extensive a’la carte menu incorporates the best of Indian cuisine with specialities and influences from all over the Asia, often with a European twist. Our recipes also draw from Cyrus and Pervin’s rich Parsee heritage.

Rare, unusual meats feature on the menu and our Speciality Menu changes regularly to take advantage of the best the British seasons have to offer. All our dishes use only the freshest of ingredients, cooked with natural herbs and Cyrus’s own spice blends.

If there is something you particularly fancy and don’t find on our menu, please get in touch. When it comes to food, we always do our utmost to make things happen. Namaste!
