This was a surprise to me for Arvada and am so glad they made it through the worst part of Covid and remain open. A very enjoyable meal and staff; helpful to vegan guest, too. Excellent place!

Some of the best Indian I’ve had in awhile. The Naan is made fresh to order and you can taste it. The family shared style makes it easier to try different options! The tandoori was amazing! Vindaloo spot on. And the lamb cooked beautifully! Try them out

Good food, comically inept service on Valentines Day 2020. Not all tables were occupied, yet it took them 30 minutes before they took our order, and another 30 minutes to get our food. They must only be able to handle self-serve lunch buffet. We won’t be going back. There are plenty of other Indian restaurants with comparable food that know how to serve their customers.

The food was very good. We do frequent this restaurant on a regular basis. Unfortunately I had to show the host my reservation on Open Table to confirm we had a reservation. The staff was way understaffed and not able to meet the needs of all of the customers in a timely fashion. The restaurant was full and the 'To Go' orders were slammed. They simply did not have the staffing available to meet the needs of the customer.

The food is great. The owner is very hospitable. However, each time that I have been to Namaste, the server has had problems understanding my order, which makes things uncomfortable.

I really like this place and wish more people knew about it. It is a very lonely restauarant, meaning that it doesn't have a lot of eat in customers. I certainly hope the carryout business is good because it would be a shame for this restaurant to close its doors.

Namaste India is a great place for dinner. The portions are generous, the food is delicious, and the service is attentive. The Vegan Platter for Two is delicious. Be prepared to take home leftovers.

The best Indian I’ve had in Arvada. I’m sensitive to spice and it’s not spicy. The wait staff was amazing and very helpful. And they deliver! I will definitely come back if I’m in Arvada and I want Indian food.

I was disappointed at the service considering there were few diners. I was hoping for a combination plate, but that is unavailable for dinner. The flavors were great so I think the lunch buffet would be just what I
wanted.

We were greeted politely soon after entering the restaurant. My partner had a special diet request and they accommodated by making one of the curry dishes lactose free. Decent wine selection. The waiter checked on us regularly and we had an enjoyable meal. I will return!

The naan was delicious with a delicate flavor. I had sweet potato korma and my friend had lamb curry. The rice was light and fluffy and out dishes were flavorful and rich. My only issue is the potion size. It seems rather small, like a lunch sized portion. Overall though, the food is excellent and the service was welcoming.

The food was delicious but the ambience of the place was a bit like a brightly lit lunch café. We were hoping for a little dimmer lighting in the evening and the candles on the tables were not lit. No real artwork anywhere in the place and the servers were not super attentive. I would say the main reason we went there was for the food but we did kind of go for the entire experience. If we were basing our review solely on the food it would get an excellent review. Based on the entire experience, it was good but not great.

Who would have thought that you can get great Indian food in Wheat Ridge or Arvada? We were a bit hesitant when we came in the early evening and the place was empty - but quite surprised by the authenticity of the food. The servings are generous, the seasonings spot-on and the naan particularly delicious!

We’ll be back for sure.

This was our first visit to Namaste India and we were not disappointed! The ingredients tasted very fresh and authentic. The servers seemed appreciative and were very hospitable. Aside from the food, our favorite thing was the entertaining Punjabi music videos that they had playing behind the bar. We really liked this place and will definitely be back!

My boyfriend and I like it super spicy and Namaste delivered just that. We got Very hot lamb vindaloo and Very hot madras. It was excellent; we were so surprised that it made us sniffle big time! The garlic nan and the yogurt too which was perfectly seasoned and creamy. We have found our new favorite Indian cuisine. Go there! The waiter had 7 tables and we didn't even notice because he was so attentive! We will be feeling the spice but it's so worth it.

The thing that most stood out to me about Namaste was how they organize their menu. I find many Indian restaurants to list things in confusing ways. For example, a vindaloo might be listed in 3 different places on the menu depending on whether it's chicken, lamb, beef, or vegetarian. I like that Namaste just lists the main dishes, explains what it is, then gives pricing for each type of meat. It was very clear and easy to read and I wish more restaurants would do this.

The food was good; not fantastic, but good. Something seemed a little different about the flavor of my lamb bhuna; maybe it was my fault for ordering it mild instead of spicy so others could share with me. We also ordered a tandoori chicken and were pleasantly surprised by the amount and size of the chicken. That was filling. We ate half of our foods and took the rest home. We had also started with vegetable samosas which were very good.

Their hot chai was also delicious, I highly recommend that on a cold night.

I've been to Namaste 3 times now, each successive time the service seems worse. I'll give the restaurant one more try, since the food is so good, but they need to find someone friendly to be the waiter/host.

Okay, I've been to Namaste now 3 times. Each time the food is really good, but this last visit I found no soap in the bathroom and the waiter was very unfriendly and stingy in terms of normal service to customers.

I'll try the restaurant again sometime, since the food is good, but if the service is that way again, there are plenty of other restaurants I know have good wait staff and would appreciate my business.

We enjoyed a Sunday evening dinner here with friends. Good value, everything very tasty. I had the lamb saag, and it was flavorful and not the least fatty. Host provided us with delicious complementary rice pudding at the end.
