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.

We enjoyed the buffet at Namaste and will return. Although the buffet needs a more professional presentation, the dishes were generally well made and tasty. Chicken tika masala was good although the tandoori chicken had little taste. I would very much like to see more vegetarian or fish choices here. The classic matar paneer and malai kofta were absent, replaced... More

Visited with the family for their lunch buffet around 1 pm on a Friday. FYI- the buffet ends at 2 pm and many selections were very low or out. The food that was available was very good and well spiced -the bread is of great quality. Nice change of pace and includes a small salad bar.

We went for lunch. They are open 11-2:30 for lunch buffet daily; 5-10 order menu daily. The lunch buffet was very good. Chicken Vindaloo was spicy without being too hot, lamb curry was tasty, other dishes very well prepared and delicious. Very affordable. Never mind the location; it's in a strip mall, but the restaurant is clean and comfortable. They... More

I love indian/nepali food. This place got the best indian curry and tikki masala. The lunch buffet is the best value as well. You can try different thing from the menu. The staff are very friendly and attentive. Highly recommend this restuarant to everyone.

The lunch buffet is just the best, service excellent. Has gotten real popular. Put the mango sauce on top of the tapioca for dessert. I must go more often.
