Reasonably good Indian food and a quirky vibe in the heart of Barsha 5 Reviews
If you’re after a reasonably good Indian meal, where the focus is on a more quirky attitude to dining rather than the food itself, then Salaam Namaste is your ticket. Set deep within the maze that is urban Barsha, the restaurant is unlicensed, so the one good thing about its location is that it is within walking distance of local drinking hole, The Locker Room. If you fancy a bit of song and dance with your meal, you’ll be thrilled by the loud music – on our last visit, it added life to an otherwise empty room.
The restaurant itself is spacious and the décor is pleasant – the vintage record player adorning the wall and fresh orchids on each table add a nice touch. The free-flowing poppadums are a good introduction to the mains, serving up the usual heavyweights such as paneer butter masala, kadai murgh and tandoor prawns. Naans and parathas comes piping hot and you’re guaranteed a giggle out of the handmade vegetable creations (ducks, lobsters and the like) decorating the plates. It does the trick without being outstanding.
