Cyrus is the Proprietor and Executive Chef of the Café Spice Namaste in London.  Over the years, Cyrus has picked up a number of prestigious awards including British Curry Awards Industry Personality of the Year 2007 and Best Indian Chef in the UK.

With a strong emphasis on British ingredients, Cyrus changes his menu every two weeks to offer the most seasonally fresh vegetables, and his food features game and rare breed meat. He is an advisor to the HRH Prince of Wales Mutton Renaissance Campaign, and he has been awarded an MBE for his commitment to skills development and training within his industry. In 2004 Cyrus was made honorary Professor of Thames Valley University's prestigious London School of Hospitality, Tourism and Leisure.

Cyrus regularly features on television and radio programmes, with appearances including Saturday Kitchen, MasterChef, The Paul O'Grady Show and Great Food Live.  He has written two cookery books: Café Spice Namaste, and India, part of the International Cuisine series, which has since become required reading for catering students in the UK.
