Spice of London

Tasty curries, very pleasant atmosphere, good service, revolting coffee.

Fantastic, innovative food in lovely setting. I thought it was all delicious, with the weakest dish being the first: a slightly underwhelming scallop with some sort of dal (please forgive my ignorance!). The rest was superb, particularly the quail with tamarind and any dish that combines chocalte with samosa with such success gets my vote any day.

I love the room too: very intimate and tastefully decorated and I thought the service was charming and very competent. I certainly don't agree that the waitors' English was poor either. Although as we were presented with cool towels upon arriving in order to wipe our fevered brows they probably could have communicated in grunts and I'd still have been charmed!
