Located next to the grand Southwark Street entrance to London’s Borough Market, Silka is a stylish Indian restaurant that matches impeccable atmosphere with high-quality South Asian cuisine. Eschewing the heaviness so often associated with run-of-the-mill Indian food, Silka focuses on authentic dishes and contemporary creations that emphasise lightness and variety, with a focus on Ayurvedic principles and healthy eating. The restaurant is very popular with Southwark’s workers, located as it is in close proximity to London Bridge station and underground, but a meal at any time is spectacular, from European-Indian fusion ‘show bites’, classics of the genre, or the nicely balanced degustation menus featuring prawn, lamb, chicken, or vegetarian dishes. Another section of the menu we recommend you plumb are the restaurant’s signature dishes, spanning the Indian subcontinent from north to south.
An old faithful. Ultra reliable. Consistently tasty food. I've been going for years. I can see why it survives. Don't be put off by the entrance which looks as if you're going into a cave. It's really bright and airy down there. Highly recommended.
We prebooked our table online for 12 noon but when we arrived they weren't expecting us and tried to turn us away as the kitchen wasn't ready, however they did accommodate us and we weren't waiting long before ordering and receiving our food. The food was lovely.
Food is fine. Nothing amazing but I've had far worse. Odd location tucked down in a basement (mind the stairs!!! Definitely not wheelchair friendly). Minimal decor. Pleasant service, friendly but a little robotic. A mid week visit meant there was only 2 customers.
