Indian
The name NAMA comes from the word Namaste which means I bow to the divine in you; or showing respect as you greet someone. The entire design and atmosphere plays off the traditional colors found in Indian culture/sub-region and will ultimately create a cozy and warm atmosphere for guests to enjoy.

Seating will have an array of options from intimate to groups. What differentiates our Indian Concept is that we will present a majority of the menu items as Shared Plates which are appropriate to enjoy and are vastly popular as all-day offerings. The idea behind the concept is that groups of people can enjoy spending time together socializing and mingling whilst trying a wider variety of offerings instead of just ordering an entree per person. This will allow Nama to cater to a wide variety of preferences and palates!

Service a little awkward, but it was obvious that they’re working out the kinks. It was a little odd with Switch being right next door—totally different atmospheres.

The food and drinks were fantastic, so we will definitely be back.

Exciting, delicious menu. Small enough yo be manageable for the uninformed. Very pretty decor, friendly and accommodating, capable service. Beer menu should be expanded

Beautiful space, INCREDIBLE food, everyone was so friendly and helpful. Only complaint is that the portions are pretty small for the price, but that does make for a fun progressive dinner. We will absolutely be back and have already recommended it to several people!

Had the Lamb Kebab, Crispy Cauliflower, and Chicken Tikka Masala w/ a Paratha and Garlic Naan. The Lamb Kebab was the perfect consistency and flavor. A little on the spicy side, but it came w/ a cucumber/cilantro-esk sauce on the side that cooled it down if you needed it. I'm butchering the names/descriptions slightly (no menu posted as of yet). The Cauliflower Tapa was a little small which was sad because it was sooooo good. Typically, I feel a lot of palate saturation w/ rich dishes such as Indian curries and stews but their Masala has lots of layers to it. I shared the pot, but could've eaten the whole thing by myself w/out getting bored w/ it. The Paratha and Naan were the standard offering. No flair, but no flair necessary w/ Indian breads...just do it right.. Spent $50 and would happily go back and try more of their variety. Roughly 20-25 items on the tapas menu and 6-ish curry pots. Not a huge beer selection, but it's not a bar.

Nama was a solid experience. We ordered 5 small plates and one large curry bowl to share. The food was tasty, but missing some flavor as it felt the dishes were toned down from other traditional Indian restaurants. I believe with more time and refinement this will be a go-to location for my wife and I.

If you’re looking for something new and delicious in Richmond, this is IT. I met a girlfriend here for dinner, and we split 3 small plates, a curry pot, naan, and 2 desserts. Needless to say, we left in blissful food comas. Everything we tried was flavorful and cooked perfectly. My favorite small plate was the Palak Chaat - so yummy with crispy spinach! The Chicken Tikka was amazing, and the naan is freshly made in house. I would also suggest checking out the cocktail menu! I’ll definitely be back to try more of their food and beverage offerings. Our service was exceptional! The waitress was knowledgeable, prompt, and happy, and the free valet parking was a great perk!
