The meal was slightly mediocre. Not bad, maybe even above average, but after eating at Delhi Diner in Albany, Namaste didn’t seem to be quite excellent. Like Delhi Diner, Namaste charges for chai refills. The Naan was OK, and the Chicken Saag was OK –...More

Ordered the Chicken Tikka Masala with rice and naan bread. It was really good, especially the naan. The prices were also reasonable. I will definitely come back!
