Indian Food is part of British way of life

Chef Cyrus Todiwala is among the clutch of Indian chefs whose names and faces are recognisable in Britain. It could be due to his Café Spice Namasté chain, frequent appearance in television and radio shows, or, just the innumerable awards and recognition he has won.

Born and brought up in Bombay, Todiwala, graduated in hotel administration and food technology and rose to become corporate executive chef of the Taj Group in Goa.

He left India for Australia in 1991 before coming to London to run the Namasté restaurant where he developed his trademark style of blending traditional Indian techniques and flavours with unexpected ingredients.

Today, Cyrus is proprietor and executive chef of the Café Spice Namasté group (Café Spice Namasté and The Parsee). He was also in the team involved in the NHS Better Food Programme chaired by Lord Grossman. In 2000, Cyrus was awarded an MBE for his commitment and expertise in the restaurant and catering industry.
