About | Our Approach is Simple!

Opened in 2005 by award-winning Chef-patron Sabbir Karim, Salaam Namaste rapidly became a favourite destination for the residents of London Bloomsbury, people who know a thing or two about food. As befits an Indian restaurant fêted by critics and patrons alike as 'vastly different from the norm', a visit to Salaam Namaste is a journey into a world where the tired clichés of the curry house have no place.


Following an eye-catching refurbishment in late 2013 Sabbir re-launched Salaam Namaste and took the opportunity to design a delectable new menu reflecting his passion for the new styles of cooking emerging from innovative kitchens across India and demonstrating the breath taking depth and variety of Indian cuisine with a matching wines & cocktail list to complement.

Meet the Team

Chef Sabbir’s team go to great lengths to ensure that every meal is perfect. This begins with subtle, complex marinades, the best quality spices and freshly prepared seasonal produce. Salaam Namaaste menu also includes a wonderful, extensive choice of modern and traditional curries, biryanis and a delicious range of gluten-free, vegan and halal options. Prepared with exacting technique & finesse, the food at Salaam Namaste concentrates on dishes cooked on the sigri (a coal flame) and on the tawa (a hot iron griddle),serving an array of mouth-watering Bukhara grills alongside a selection of curries both traditional and modern, using the freshest ingredients and matched to a wine list which provides pairings which will delight.


Salaam Namaaste is a stylish and contemporary space for intimate dinners or ideal venue for entertaining the guest and business clients, a hidden gem away from the mayhem of busy west end. The restaurant can be hired for private dining, corporate parties and social celebrations for parties of up to 70 seating and an heated alfresco decking.. Wrap this in sleek, modern yet welcoming surroundings and you'll see why Salaam Namaste has such an enviable reputation as a destination for aficionados of Indian cuisine and best Indian restaurant in London.
