Inside are seats for around 20 people on tall-backed black pleather chairs at tables covered with white linen cloths. A service counter with a glass-fronted display of sweets is along one wall, with shelves of packaged savouries behind. Mirrors and pictures of village life in India cover the wall opposite.

Kake visited on a Wednesday morning in February 2017. There was only one other customer when I arrived around 11am, but three others turned up during my visit. No music was playing. The staff were working out the back when I got there, but the other customer advised me to press the bell by the till for service, and they came out promptly to take my order.

I ordered pani puri (£3.50 for ten) photo, and they checked that I wanted tamarind sauce and onions. The shells were almost all structurally sound only one of them leaked but two or three were a little stale. They were filled with onions, chickpeas, and mashed potato, and a couple of them were too full to actually get much pani in. The pani was nicely spicy, but I'd have preferred a bit more herb flavour.

Service was friendly and helpful, and a glass of water was brought with my food without me having to ask.

As of February 2017 they are cash only.

Accessibility: A small step and a heavy, narrow door to get in. Toilets not checked.
