Review on Silka Restaurant

Silka tries to provide a soothing antidote to the frenetic foodie hustle-and-bustle of Borough Market. The restaurant is below stairs and it has been thoughtfully designed to create the calming illusion of a horizontal, layered landscape with clouds floating above. Trendy timbers such as rosewood, ebony and makore add a touch of exoticism, while frosted window frames surround the show kitchen.

It makes a suitably cool backdrop for classy Indian food with a healthy bias. Many of the dishes adhere to the holistic Ayurvedic principles of nutrition, energy and balance - witness lotus leaf salad (flavoured with sesame seeds and gram flour, and served with a medley of chutneys), steamed lemon sole wrapped in a banana leaf with coconut and coriander, or wild duck braised in ginger and garlic paste.

The extensive menu also has other house specialities including poached king prawns peri-peri with Goan spices, apricot and lamb curry, and Keralan-style tilapia cooked with mustard seeds and curry leaves - plus a full quota of curry house standards such as tandoori lamb, chicken tikka masala and rogan josh. Set menus are excellent value.
