June in Camden. Not quite April in Paris, but it’ll do. Satisfaction hasn’t been found in any of my visits to Indian restaurants recently: Dishoom was bland and Trishna overrated. Famous sub-continental hospitality has been non existent, and I’ve been having nightmares about Saag Aloo ever since. Namaaste Kitchen, a lazy stroll from Camden Town tube, is the second restaurant from ex-Chutney Mary chef Sabir Karim. It’s something of a hidden gem in blogging circles, despite Fay Maschler and Matthew Norman’s definite praise. Aside from tourist traps and greasy spoons, I suppose Camden is something of a foodie Bermuda...

As the vegetarian and healthy food reviewer for Food I Fancy I went to Namaaste Kitchen, a contemporary Indian restaurant in Camden to find out what it has to offer vegetarians who prefer fresh and healthy food.Generally Indian cuisine is a good choice for vegetarians with a variety of aromatic flavours and spices to choose from. It also tends to be fresh and healthy, although I’ve yet to walk out of an Indian restaurant having eaten a sensible amount!

What I really yearn for is an Indian restaurant that offers something a little different rather than the same dozen familiar dishes over and over again ad nauseam.Enter Namaaste Kitchen, brainchild of chef-patron Sabbir Karim, the only award-winning chef I have ever heard of who also works as a purser on British Airways flights!Having previously worked at Red Fort and Chutney Mary, Chef Sabbir opened his first restaurant, Salaam Namaaste, in Bloomsbury in 2005. Karim’s fresh approach to Indian cooking led to the restaurant being described as a “journey into a world where the tired clichés of...

Parkway is the main food hub in Camden. It is a pulsating thoroughfare full of restaurants, pubs and clubs.. Namaaste Kitchen sits about half-way down and the interior is an oasis of calm in brown and white after the hurly-burly of the street.

Camden isn’t much of a foodie paradise. I can only assume that those who reside there don’t actually eat, they’re all too busy dying their hair ironic shades of neon and clumping about in ten stone shoes to notice the calls of hunger. I guess they starve, in the end. A sad tale. If they do take time out from their frighteningly-cool lives to have a bite to eat though the Camden folk go to Naamaste, because it’s the only decent eating establishment in the area. And because cool people like Indian cuisine...
