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.

The owner is very nice, the food is very good both indian and nepalese, and the price is right. I have only been for dinner, many times, and I have never tried the buffet.

We decided to go to Namaste after reading the positive reviews on Yelp, Urbanspoon and Tripadvisor. We were glad we did. We were greeted with a gentle bow and smile. The food was well prepared and very tasty. The service was very attentive and friendly. Highly recommend this restaurant!

This place has a medium sized lunch buffet, but all of the dishes that we tried were really great. They have mostly the standard dishes, but the ones we liked best were the vegetarian ones with Nepali spices. The available items seem to rotate from day to day.

My wife and I stopped by for lunch this past Saturday at Namaste. Even though the place was bustling with people the staff seated us right away. They quickly brought us our beverages (you should never have to wait for a glass of water!). The food quality is some of the very best we've tasted. Their specialty is the green... More

Best Indian food in the ABQ area. I used to love going to India palace for lunch, and still do. But once I had Namaste...whoa. Just unreal. But here is the kicker, my wife is super picky and did not like the first time I took her to India Kitchen (now closed), which was somewhat understandable but I thought it... More
