Hindu style!

I went for dinner with a friend, we were attended to very quickly. We selected some starters and main courses, of which there was a considerable amount, value for money in my opinion. I think the decoration may be in need of attention, a mix of objects. We were not there when there was any... read more

We came for its lunch menu, so we can't say a word about the shows that other reviewers have mentioned here. For 9.95 € it was a fair deal. Nothing special, but If you're hungry and nearby, and you enjoy Indian food, its lunch menu will do the trick for an average price. Take into account that they only serve... More

We discovered this "find" only a block away from our Hotel in Barcelona, while craving for some Indian food. We had two excellent meals at Namaste and as an Indian, having eaten at various Indian Restaurants in Madrid, Malaga and now Barcelona (on our 10 day holiday coming to an end now), I can safely say this was the best...

Reading the other reviews of this restaurant makes me think that maybe we just got very unlucky, however that's not really an excuse for a restaurant to provide bad food. We visited the restaurant on a Sunday evening, found it completely empty except for maybe one other guest. I really like Indian food so I was looking forward to it... More

Quite good Indian taste in Barcelona. I have just spotted that somebody has put a "terrible rating". That person for sure is somebody from the competition - and as such you should read it as really good. So far I have been at this restaurant few times and (many more times at Namaste I - the people who run it... More

Staying in Eixample

Neighborhood Profile
Eixample
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognizable by its more spacious streets and elegant atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district, Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognized architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
