Diner Reviews
  • "Interesting location and good service but the quality of the food was disappointing. I would not go again"
    Dined on 10/3/2013
  • "Very good food, Interesting sauces, well prepared, generous portions. The menu has the standards plus some interesting variations. There is a lot to choose from, including many vegetarian dishes. There were six of us and they accommodated us without fuss, adding extra plates as needed and even keeping the water glasses filled. The setting is a huge wonderful room and when I go back, I hope to have time do find out something about its history."

  • "We enjoyed our dinner - particularly the South Indian food (Indian restaurants tend to be North Indian). The food was good, not great. The presentation was good."

  • "We have been here several times now. Like their food a lot. Interesting building that used to be a bank. Shrimp karahi was very good! I usually get the eggplant curry, but decided to try something different. Really liked the Karahi sauce more than I thought I would. Will likely get it again. I like their food because it isn't so spicy that you can't taste it! They also have wine. When we get the thali (dinner) we always leave stuffed!"

  • "Wonderful Indian food - my favorite in Berkeley. A little surprising that they didn't have iced tea (which is on the menu) and that the naan took so long to get my table. But the food is very nice and very reasonably priced."

  • "I ordered onion nan, butter chicken, and a shrimp dish & all was very good"

  • "Had been to this restaurant on 3 prior occasions and had been very pleased with the food. This meal was quite disappointing: tough lamb in the underseasoned curry, naan with little personality, and soup served at the same time as the meal in a difficult to eat from dish."

  • "There are a lot of Indian restaurants out there, but this new spot in Berkeley has become a favorite. Large, roomy space allows for both noise and quiet conversations. The menu selection is ample and the service is excellent. A great stop on Shattuck if you're in the mood for Indian food."

  • "We love the large dining room here which is a converted bank. When we want to go somewhere relatively quiet and low-key for great Indian food, this place is it. The service is nice, and the thali dinners come with dessert. The food here is very good and filling! They give you free papadum with dips as an appetizer. They also offer wine and beer on the menu. We always leave here satisfied and full!"

  • "Good value but the food could be more flavorful. Service was great."
    Dined on 9/7/2012
  • "Everyone who went with me agreed that most Indian restaurants serve dishes that have lots of gravy and little meat but Namaste is the opposite! Hearty servings - good value for money. Very good service - in fact, we were given a free serving of naan with our order. Because the ceilings are so high, I wouldn't call it a "cozy" setting but all-in-all, very nice."

  • "I have eaten at Namaste 3 times and each time the food has been consistently flavorful, delicious and generous. Service is courteous and attentive. Desired level of spiciness is willingly accommodated. Masal Dosa and uttapam are some of my favorite dishes as well as the lentil soup to start the meal. I will return again."
