“Okay, but nothing special”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

We went mid afternoon with a group of 8 and ordered a wide variety of items from the menu. The food was okay, but nothing special. The breads were very good, but some of the sauces tasted like they were reheated from a better time.. The service was friendly and reasonably prompt, and the place was pretty clean. Overall, a solid 6 (maybe 7) on a scale from 1-10

“Average Indian food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

The food was not very special if you have tried and like real Indian food. We have ordered at least 10 different courses and most of them tasted very similar. All contained tomato sauce (probably not fresh but from the can). The spicy courses were not really spicy (an Indian man would never call it spicy). When we asked the waitress for chilli sauce she said they don't have any and brought chilli powder ;-)
I love that Indian food is not cooked for too long especially tandoori but here all is cooked too long and does not taste very fresh. Any way if you have never tried Indian before you might like it but if you have tried it several times you will not love this place.
However, the waitress and cooks were very nice and friendly eventhough we stayed after opening hours.

“Hidden Jewel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

We found this jewel of a restaurant while dining out with a friend and wanting something different to eat while on an extended trip to Poland. Namaste has large sign out in front of the building, with a hidden entrance along the side of the building. Upon entering you immediately feel as if you have stepped into another world.
The gentleman who greeted us (I assume owner or manager) is Indian, and clearly brings authentic Indian food into Zielona Gora.
My husband ordered a very spicy chicken dish,, which wasn't that hot, until he bit into one of the many small peppers in his dish. I ordered the Goan prawn dish because I like more sweet dishes with coconut. We also ordered a mango salad and fried cottage cheese with a minty sauce. All of which was very good.
The manager, as well as the waitress spoke good English, which was helpful to my husband & I. The portions were large & filling.
Overall, a very good experience & judging by how many patrons were there, it is up & coming!
