Café Spice Namasté information
Chef Cyrus Todiwala has taken an old magistrates court just a 10-minute walk from Tower Hill and decorated it in carnival colours; the service and atmosphere are as bright as the walls. The Parsi and Goan menu is famous for its superlative dhansaak (lamb stew with rice and lentils; £14.95) but just as good are the tandoori dishes and the Goan king-prawn curry.
Bonuses: it makes its own chutneys and there’s a little garden behind the dining room open in the warmer months.
