Suriname food in London?

I heard rumors that there should be a Surinamese restaurant in London. There's 1 in NYC and there's a whole lot of them in neighboring Amsterdam.
Given the size of London and Suriname's proximity to former UK colonies (Guyana etc) I'd think here ought to be at least 1 Surinamese restaurant in London...
Second best, if no Surinamese food is available in London, would be Indonesian but then specifically Java style Indonesian (dying for a great saoto soup, it beats pho - and i love pho)
No Rob, no Surinamese restaurants here in London, I'm afraid :-( I have to make my own saoto soup! I am Surinamese Javanese myself. But I am craving for roti and pom! I do know a Surinamese lady here in London who is planning to open a restaurant... I'll check it out and I'll let you know!
Given the fact that the UK has little to no colonial/cultural/political/economical ties with Suriname, I doubt you will ever find Surinamese food in London or anywhere else in the UK for that matter.
Unlike the Netherlands, which thanks to those earlier mentioned ties hosts a Surinamese population that equals the population in Suriname itself! So for great food, head over the North Sea ;)
