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

If Asian fusions are your thing then food here won't disappoint. Service is without a smile but the waitress is efficient and on the ball. The chef is Indian and therefore recommend the Indian dishes more than the Thai or Chinese options. The Chicken Dopiaza was comparable to dishes back in the U.K and serves ample portions. Get off at... More

After 5 weeks travelling through China, Kyrgyzstan and Kazakhstan, we were missing Indian food! We had a pleasant lunch here - service was a bit slow but the food didn't take too long and was pretty tasty. The menu is extensive - Thai, Chinese and Indian sections - we might go back to try the other cuisines before we head... More

I like namaste. The service is kind, but somewhat slow. Was there at 1:00 in the afternoon on a Tuesday but there was no one else there. The food is good though! Chinese, Thai, and Indian food on the menu. Music, however, does not quite match the scenary ;)

I think they have a new chef... mixed reviews from me..food was pretty decent..nan not as good as in the past, ... tandoori chicken good but not as... one waitress for entire restaurant and she gave a valiant effort I always go back.. and hope they get back to previous standards which would have earned one more star.

This is what I call a typical sovietski sajus restaurant. From the outside the building looks like it wasn't maintained for at least 20 years ( even if it may be only 10 years old ). The interior is terrible cheap and there is not any atmosphere in the place. The indian food is - for kazakh terms - not... More
