Great food and great service. The prices were also very reasonable, especially for the location.
Loved our first visit to Namaste. This is probably our new favorite restaurant. Looking forward to regular visits!!!!
Conveniently located near the King Street station, if you are just passing through Old Town. The owner was extremely friendly and the food was outstanding!
We went for dinner. I have been to the Namaste on Franconia road for the lunch buffet and we are always very pleased with the food and service. The restaurant itself is very attractive, but on a Friday night at 7pm it was pretty empty. The service at this location was confusing. We had multiple servers. We asked one server for recommendations, he simply replied it is all good. So we were on our own. Not being especially familiar with Nepalese/Indian cuisine I got the stand by dish of Chicken Tikka Masala, it was unimpressive. I was with 3 other people they all liked their dishes enough, but not outstanding. The naan bread is not included with the meals so you must pay extra for it. We were given 2 dishes of rice, even though 3 of the dishes were supposed to be served with rice. We all shared a plate of chili momo dumplings as an appetizer with a chicken filling, these were the best part of the meal. The bill was $100 for the 4 of us for 1 appetizer, 4 main dishes and an $8 basket of naan...no drinks or dessert. We felt like it was overpriced for what we got. We may try the Old Town location again for the lunch buffet, but I wouldn't return again for dinner.
The food was wonderful. Shrimp curry was excellent. I enjoyed the food so much, I returned the next night and ordered the Seafood Thali, which was beautifully presented and quite delicious.
The food is delicious and the wait staff is friendly and attentive.
We stopped in for the Sunday buffet and were blown away. Incredible flavors. This is seriously some of the best Indian food we have had in years. The sauces were silky and luxurious. The chutneys were thick and flavorful. Servers were friendly. The restaurant is very clean and bright. Highly recommend. Cannot wait to return and order off the menu.
So good. When they say their vindaloo is hot, believe them. Love it.
Great food, nearly empty (due to polar vortex)... Found it strange that they decided to seat other patrons right next to us (no privacy!)
Was quiet and cold in the restaurant and they didn’t have half the wines or beers on the menu. However the food was excellent.
Food was not seasoned properly... worst was the service. Had to wave arms wildly for service...
Fabulous restaurant. Wonderful people. The manager Jay is terrific.
First, compliments to our server - I didn’t get the name, but she was a very friendly young lady who said she was from Mumbai - for doing a great job with the six people at our table! She had a good sense of humor, accurately took down the many things we ordered, and never made us feel rushed throughout our long dinner!
Many compliments to chef!! The food - all of the dishes - were delicious! We started with Samosas, and Pani-puri, for the apps, and for the main course, had lamb Rohan josh, Chicken Tikka Masala, Baingan (eggplant) Bharta, Bhindi (okra), and the Aloo-Gobi (potato-cauliflower) dishes, followed by desserts: Gulab-Jamun, Ras Malai, and Mango lassis. All SUPERB!!
Thanks to the Namaste team for a great experience!!
Absolutely fantastic food and ambience!! The chef personally comes to your table to explain the day's menu and you see him cook all your food only feet away in a completely open concept kitchen/restaurant (no walls - not even glass walls). The setting is sooo much fun and the mediterranean food was delicious!!
Waiter was excellent - recommenced great appetizer and was a great sounding board for main dishes. Gave skepticism when we ordered lots of naan bread which was good because he did not know our love for naan vs rice.
Food was good but not sure got lamb korma that we ordered. If it was then least favorite lamb karma that have had after eating Indian for the last 20 years to include a few years in England.
On a good news, Butter Chicken was awesome - soaked up good naan with the sauce.
The food was so flavorful, beautiful and carefully prepared. The peanut appetizer was one of the biggest surprises-can’t wait for a re-do on that. Everything was wonderful but the peanuts were special
Great food choice. Nepalese and Indian specialties. Vegetarian choices are extremely numerous. Beer, wine and cocktails are expensive but good.
This is one of my favorite Old Town restaurants for the food and ambience.
Three of us went for dinner. Service was attentive, but not annoyingly so. Food was really good, no complaints from any of us. Nice wine list and reasonably priced. I’ll definitely go back.
Food was good. People were nice. Service was ridiculously slow. Place was very unorganized.
Not impressed. The wait staff were not attentive and made mistakes. Lacklustre approach. Food was nasty. I found a sharp chicken bone in my dish which shouldn’t have any bones in it at all. The manager didn’t care. Won’t be going back.
Excellent, authentic Indian food including Tandoori dishes. The service was attentive until the main dishes were served, but we were abandoned thereafter, unable even to order a second drink. I t would like to think that this was an unfortunate aberration, since the food was superb.
