So we have dined here a few times before. Typical buffet set up. Atmosphere is a bit sketchy at first, old and bit run down to say the least. However, once you dish up some goodness, that all goes away. The variety of dishes are good comfort food! We will be dining here again when the urge hits again!

The buffet is a great option as you can try many varieties of curry and other dishes. My family enjoyed trying and discussing several different things. We all found things we really liked and had several trips to the buffet. It was really nice that the items are labeled with their names and short descriptions, which makes it easier to... More

We just had the most wonderfully flavorful meal, the buffet at Namaste. It was a little challenging to get into, and the decor is more "family style" than "romantic", but none of that really matters when the food tastes this good. We got there early, so the buffet was fresh. There was a large selection, with several varieties of vegetables,... More

Had the buffet. Good selection between veggie, lamb, chicken and goat. Everything was nicely spiced without being too hot.

The buffet was recommended by the hostess, so that was what we did. The food was very good. The labeling on the buffet items was not so accurate or at least the placement of food and labeling did not seem to always coincide. The decor was what we think of as Indian. One of the waitstaff seemed to have difficulty... More

Consistently good food, lots of variety and friendly staff. They do offer a buffet lunch or dinner. We live in Vancouver so this is a favorite go-to restaurant, especially for my husband.

My friends and I were on a cycling trip in the USA and had a hankering for some Punjabi food. Loved the buffet: The crispy pakoras, freshly cooked naan, tadka daal and the vegetable curry were delicious. Some of the meat dishes could be further improved - But then I am being picky and we're lucky to have some of... More

This is our gesture of friendship and is accompanied with the greeting, "Namaste". "Namaste" symbolizes the culture and heritage of India, where we welcome everyone into our hearts... More

Today we were shopping at Vancouver Mall, which lies on Wa 500 just west of the 205. As lunchtime rolled around my wife suggested we try the Indian restaurant that I have been muttering about, Namaste, which was not too far away. A quick drive across the freeway and a button hook on Wa 503 got us to the restaurant.... More
