I visited Silka while in London on a business trip hoping for a good curry. While the portions were generous, the quality of the food was very poor. The prawn puri was cooked in a fairly bland sauce while the chicken jalfrezi main course tasted...More

Dont believe the 5 star reviews(?!?), my girlfriend vomited an hour after eating here - After trying and failing countless times to book a table over the phone, we decided to turn up anyway and see if they'd give us a table. The staff were...More

This is not authentic tasting indian food. It's greasy and poorly cooked. portions were pathetic. counted 10 tiny pieces of paneer in a chilli paneer dish that cost 7.50. Way overpriced.

A good menu that caters for all. The food is made to view and the choice is extensive. If you want to taste authentic Indian flavours then this is a good place for a visit. The service is slow and waiters confuse orders so remember...More

Tucked away near Borough Market, we popped in here for a lunch and a breather. The surroundings reminded us of a cafeteria, but the food was really nice and the service was excellent. Would be more than happy to return.

Amidst all the frantic activity to be found around London Bridge, this restaurant is a comparative haven of peace; or at least it was on the Saturday afternoon when my wife and I visited. With little more frontage than a door, it is easily overlooked...More

Not realy bad food, but a dreadful place. Don't mind the cellar, but poor athmosphere. In good old England, famous for tea drinking, you won't get a cup of tea or coffee here! Only cash, no cards, which is out of time for a serious...More

Had a nice chicken madras, mushroom rice, onion Bhaji. Very good food - I especially liked the discoid (rather than spherical) onion bhajis - too many places do them as big tennis ball size dollops but these were lovely and flat and crispy. Bottle of...More

Even before the arrival of the instantly iconic Shard,
the riverside scene in Southwark had moved well beyond
any up-and-coming phase of development. For quite some
time, locals and out-of-towners alike have loved
browsing the boutiques of Bermondsey High Street,
foraging through the bounteous stalls at centuries old
foodie haven Borough Market, and flocking to the banks
of the Thames to enjoy some of Britain's biggest
