I've been going to Namaste for perhaps ten years now, and what I love about it is I'm still discovering wonderful new things on the menu. As a mostly veggie couple with a weakness for the occasional invertebrate dish this place is fantastic. So many...delicious vegetarian options, such great shrimp dishes, so many decadent uses of paneer. I can not recommended it highly enough.More

Indian culture speaks here through your tongue in Namaste Hanoi. Your mouth dances with taste of authentic spices of India. Perhaps if you are honestly in search of mouth watering -healthy-authentic lndian food in Vietnam this is the right place for you! The menu is...like poetry you have long, medium short type of items based on your appetite on that day, that mood and the season. Ambience is lndian, hospitality both by the local staff and especially the owner Shree Gopi ji is very good. Always you can hear lndian songs, music in Namaste. Gopi ji keeps on adding new food item into the menu card! I am a regular visitor of Namaste Hanoi for more than two years & believe me being a very good foody l am unable to exhaust their menu! Even during challenging days of Covid 19 pandemic they have maintained same hospitality (guest is god), prize, neatness, smiling face and authenticity as it was before. What more you need. In terms of Indian food l consider Namaste Hanoi not only a restaurant by an institution by itself. South and north thali are very good, always fresh. Dal makhnee, mushroom soup, sabjis, medu vada,... my list of favourite food here in Namste is big. Whenever my family and friends have visited Hanoi l make it a point to bring them here. For me eating in Namaste means eating in Bengaluru. When you are in Hanoi next time make sure you dine at ' a thing of beauty in authentic lndian food ' called Namaste Hanoi.More

I moved from Kuala Lumpur to Hanoi in 2017.Over the past 3 years, I had the opportunity to try out all the 15+ Indian/Middle East restaurants in Hanoi for few times, which brings me to this review. I would recommend Namaste Hanoi to those looking...for authentic Indian dishes, especially South Indian. I find the food taste and quality has been consistent over these years. My favorites would be - Kottu Parotta (Roti Canai Goreng), Set Dosa, Chicken Tawa Masala, Prawn Pepper Fry, Mixed Bhajiya, Paneer Tikka Masala...and many others. Of course, to wash it down with Masala Tea and Carrot Halwa after that. ( followed by guilt feeling of busting my diet) On top of that, one would instantly notice the comfortable and the spacious atmosphere which would add the experience to dining, especially after a long hard day. When Covid19 hit our shores and the city was in lockdown, I was also very pleased that the founder - Mr.Gopi quickly ramped up his food-delivery service and made sure me (and others like me)are not left in hunger /crave. To my surprise, even via delivery , the food was on par.More

Food was great. Owner Mr Gopi Sounded very passionate about the cousines and spices they use. We really enjoyed and will go back again. Honestly the best place for Indian cuisine in Hanoi! Mr Gopi (owner) was extremely helpful in recommending their signature dishes.

The food is delicious. A huge menu that caters to everybody with both North and South Indian dishes. The staff and the owner are friendly and helpful and will give recommendations too. The prices are really reasonable, portions are generous - one of my favourite...spots.More

Honestly the best place for Indian cuisine in Hanoi! It's an ultimate dining experience as opposed to just a restaurant. Many Indian people actually frequent it, and the owner Gopi was extremely helpful in recommending their signature dishes. The spice and flavour level is also...high, unlike many of the others that lack in richness.More

If you are craving for South Indian food, there is no other place to go and enjoy some delicious Dosa, Idly, Upma and much more. But the North Indian dishes are excellent too thanks to two specialized chefs! The friendly owner and staff make the...visit even lovelier!More

I have been here twice and enjoyed every single bite of my meals. So delicious! Also, the manager seems to really care about his costumers’ experience and gave us some great recommendations. Totally go for it!

Myself and my wife really enjoyed our food at Namaste. We were pleasantly surprised to see the owner/manager (Gopi) taking orders and making his customers feel relaxed and at ease. He was happy to make recommendations on what food to chose (the menu is lengthily...and my knowledge of Indian cuisine poor!) and his recommendations were indeed delicious (particularly the lassie, though I can't remember the name... ) The portions are large and the bread fabulous. The staff are knowledgeable, polite and attentive. We will be back again for sure. Thank you, Gopi and staff.More

I don’t believe it’s the worst food. In fact I had no problem with the meal. The owner is most definitely annoying and it was his attitude that left a bitter taste in my mouth. It certainly wasn’t the food.
