“Good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014 via mobile

After an eight day road trip was good to have some Indian food. The Garnish restaurant was a nice end to our trip. Decor wasn't as bad I expected, a bit plain. Food was good, not the best Indian food I have eaten but it hit the spot.

“A great experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

Tasty, spicy food with good portion sizes. We have had both take away food and eaten in. Either is to be recommended although the clinical lighting and decor isn't greatly appealing. Cannot fault the food or the friendly staff.

“Good Indian Cuisine now available in Namibia”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

As an extreme lover of good North Indian food, its great that Windhoek has a new authentic Indian restaurant. Interior decoration is simple and basic which makes a change from the often ostentatious attempt of trying to create something that is not! The restaurant is small and is located in a local apartment building. So you need to book to avoid disappointment.
The food is authentic and tasty. The butter chicken, chicken tikka, palak paneer, aloo gobi (not on the menu) were all excellent, the garlic naan bread decent. The portions were more than sufficient for two people to share. It is still early days, staff are still finding their feet, but there is nothing wrong with the overall service, it was fast and friendly.
They also offer a very popular take-away service.
Take your own wine as they are not licensed yet.
Just please do not namibianise the menu (as so many restaurants do to cater to the whims of the local palate) and stick to traditional Indian cuisine.

“Authentic Indian indeed!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013

The food at Garnish is an absolute delight! It is real indian cuisine at its best and prepared in the shortest amount of time. The owners are very friendly and the atmosphere is really warm and hearty. I wish they would not Namibianise the menu as is the tendency in Namibia of foreign cuisine.

“Authentic Indian cuisine back in Windhoek”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

After a long absence, Windhoek has a new Indian restaurant. No prizes here for interior decoration, but the food is authentic and tasty. The lamb Rogan Josh, butter chicken and breyani were all excellent, and the garlic naan bread decent - however a bit oily. It is still early days, staff are still finding their feet, but there is nothing wrong with the skills in the kitchen. I will be back for more!
