Staff is always friendly even then kids relax and little ones usually make a mess around the table. Good advise, if you are... read more

I visited Namaste on 2 occasions. Both times it was the same; Quality Indian food in very relaxed surroundings. The food is very tasty and in good size portions. When asked, the owner told me they have 3 Indian chefs which explains the quality. They advised me an Indian spicy tea with milk with was amazing to taste. Many traditional... More

Ok food, a bit overpriced and nothing impressive but portions were decent and one of our two curries was actually slightly spicy. But the meal did not end so well. We casually ordered two papadums, as you do when you go to eat Indian food. What arrived at our table was two of those small, store-bought packaged papadums, with no... More

The food and ambiance are good but very expensive. But the attitude of one of the waitress is extremely negetive.Waitress (a very skinny lady who speaks English) is extremely arrogant. When she gave me the cold water I asked for a room temperature normal water she says she do not have one. I mentioned that another waitress the other day... More

Located in a very ordinary looking building, this restaurant's interior feels a little claustrophobic. The menu is very extensive and ranges from Indian to Thai and Chinese food. We stuck with the Indian food and were very disappointment by the total lack of spice in all the dishes even though we asked for spice. The only dishes that tasted anywhere... More

We had 2 meals in a group. The food was very good in all respects--presentation,quality and quantity. The snacks and drinks along with belly dancing made it special. It is value for money as well

This was long back but still fresh in memory. The India feel is overdone but doesn't bother you much. Food quality is great (not authentic Indian but tasty all right) and the service is super fast. There's not much warmth in the way they take your orders but you get what you want and pretty fast too. Namaste was indeed... More
