We love the food but the service must be improved. There seems to be NO proper training for servers. You wait and wait for drink orders, you wait for napkins after the appetizers have been served, you wait for cutlery and you have to ask for empty dishes and drink glasses to be removed. Totally not necessary and this will keep customers from returning.

I love the different dishes Namaste offers! There were so many servers standing around but we had to enquire as to where are drinks were. Several servers meant that one didn't know when the other had taken our order.

We had lunch and as it was out first time we had the sampler tray. five dishes with appetizer and desert for under $20. Everything was excellent and butter chicken was outstanding. Service was god without being overly watchful. All staff in saris looked good. Service was not fast but not slow. Nice pace to talk and eat. We will be back.

We ate on the patio, and the floor of the patio was not clean when we arrive. The wait staff are a bit slow. Nonetheless, the wait staff are attentive and hard-working, and the food is excellent.

Birthday group of 6. About $300 worth of good and drink so a big night for us. Service a little slow on getting all people lined up with alcohol. Food was great, spicy and well timed in terms of bringing it in patches....

Horrible, really loud motorcycle and cars driving past, really slow service, bland flavourless food, waited what seemed like forever just to order tpu see other patrons also getting annoyed, main course eventually arrived without rice and I kept having to ask the servers how long as our main courses were going cold, 15 minutes later and we could start eating only to find out just how bland the dishes were, go elsewhere, plenty of other better Indian restaurants around.

The ambience is great and the service is also good. But the food is little disappointing and is expensive as well. Not worth it of it's value.

First time eating in Kingston, so happy we tried Namaste. The food was excellent and the patio experience was positive. The next time we are in Kingston, this will be one of our stops.

Beautifully decorated and clean restaurant with traditional Indian artefacts in addition to gold decor and stunning crystal chandeliers scattered throughout. Service was friendly, polite and prompt. Food quality was very good; fresh, aromatic, little oil and hot. Garlic nan was wonderful; thinner than traditional nan allowing for a little crispness - garlicky delight!

I have been to Kingston Namaste a few times now and every time I have thoroughly enjoyed the ambiance and service. Food is excellent and authentic. Being an indian I am a bit fussy when it comes to eating Indian food in restaurants but I have enjoyed every dish I have ordered. I had brought a few friends on couple of occasions and they were also impressed by the whole package. I must say that waitresses with their beautiful smile makes all the customers feel very welcomed. I would absolutely definitely 100% recommend it !

Very poor service and we were mostly ignored - at the beginning and throughput the meal
Large parties and Skip the dishes seemed to be the priority
Female washroom unsatisfactory
No one came by to see about another drink
After food served took another 20 minutes to get the naan bread- and then only one order
Servers seemed uninvolved
Other patrons were complaining too
Very unfortunate for us with so much potential there
All this spoiled the pretty good food
We won’t go back - but may use a food service app and avoid the disappointment that was the restaurant experience!

Food was ok. Ambiance; although beautiful, was very crowded. We had to move the table to be able to sit down & I felt like I was overtop of the table all night. Not able to relax for fear of bumping into the patron behind me. Not much privacy as there was staff at our table it seemed every two minutes.

Staff and service were friendly and always on top of what we needed. Food was excellent and nicely presented. Noise and light level were a bit higher than I would have preferred, but not offensive. It was a full house in an open setting. Second time eating there and will definitely be going back. Great addition to downtown Kingston dining opportunities!

The flavours were authentic. It tastes just like when I was in India. The bowls the food was served in were deep, copper bowls which helped to keep the food hot. Warming the dinner plates would be a nice added touch.

Great ambience and service. Tad disappointed with food - Bland vegetarian curries and oily poori and samosa. Could add more spice and masala to bring out the traditional indian flavours and to ensure it's more savoury.
