I've eaten here twice, once for the lunch buffet and recently for dinner off the menu. I enjoy the buffet because of the variety of foods available but the dinner was fantastic as well. The restaurant is clean, nicely decorated, warm, and the servers are very attentive and friendly. The food is phenomenal and it just smells incredible as soon... More

This place is always packed during lunch time so get there early. They offer an all you can eat buffet, the food is wonderful and the price is very reasonable. My favorites are the spinach, the meatballs, the butter chicken and, of course, the naan bread. Finish it off with mango custard or rice pudding. I can't decide which one... More

My favorite meal at Namste is the lunch buffet because I don't know the names of all the dishes on the menu. The buffet gives me a chance to learn about Nepalese and Tibetan food. Everything is delicious and all the food is at the correct temperature. Some buffets have food that is too cool on the steam table but... More

Had their lunch buffet the other day, first time diner here by the way.......we were very impressed with the quality and selection of their rather exotic Indian cuisine. The atmosphere in the restaurant is mediocre. The restroom urgently needs updating and renovation. Food is very good......lots of unique tastes and fun entrees to try. I liked the spinach casserole and... More

Namaste is the best Indian food on the west side. I have only been to their lunch buffet but it is always excellent. They rotate the choices throughout the week, so you can go there often and it stays interesting. I haven't had anything I didn't like. There is a great vibe in this restaurant. It is relaxing and conducive... More

This friendly, Nepalese-owned and run restaurant has survived and thrived, not only because of its authentic, tasty Indian food and reasonable prices, but also because of the personal attention paid to each customer by the owner and staff. The lunch buffet is an unbelievable value, with a broad selection of typical dishes (Tandoori, Tikka Masala, etc. with chicken, beef and... More

Great Indian food. I have tried almost everything. Chicken tikka Marsala is the best I've had anywhere. Great flavors and good portion sizes. I would recommend this place to anyone.
