The place is not the greatest but the food is excellent. We usually take out. Lunch is a great deal if you get the buffet. I am in love with the tandoori chicken and the curry. Naan is great too, get garlic!

Tell me the last time you enjoyed Nepalese cuisine. That's what I thought. This place isn't just a unique destination though- the food is scrumtrulescent. Truly a gem in the beautiful metropolis that is Rio Rancho.

Have only dined inside the restaurant once and had a very good experience with great service and excellent food. However, we do takeout quite often for family get togethers. The portions are good sized, and fresh. We particularly like the Spinach with potatoes, the chicken curry and the rice, however that is based on our preference. In general we have... More

Namaste never disappoints. The naan is amazing. My favorites are the green chile chicken curry and the tikka masala. The buffet is an excellent value and always delicious. You will not be dissappointed.

The food was pretty good the staff is pretty friendly. I had the buffet, and I expect the blandness was due to the large amount of different types of tastes they had to cater to. While still good the food was kind of lacking in kick that I'm accustomed to the traditional Indian cuisine. I definitely plan on coming here... More

We went to this place recently. Used to be a place (although not an authentic Indian restaurant) with great food and good hospitality and we are regulars for the past 5 years. But now under new management as the old nice Nepali owner lady is missing and this business is taken over by unpleasant daughter and her waiter boy friend... More

I did not really care for their food. I thought it was gross. It did not look appealing and it kind of smelled bad.
