Reviewed February 16, 2013

Went to Didsbury on a night out meeting friends, afterwards went for a meal at this restaurant, good move! Food was excellent and very tasty rather than just being SPICY HOT like most curry houses in the area, staff were attentive and pleasant, we were not rushed or hassled but had a wonderful experience and will defiantly return with friends and family!!

“Awesome value for an authentic meal. Would recommend to anyone, especially big groups.”
Reviewed February 2, 2013 via mobile

We regularly eat at Namaste, and it never dissapoints. Its really authentic Nepalese food, and good value. We often go as a large group or get home delivery.
The restaurants decor isn't cutting edge, but the service is friendly and welcoming. Its my favourite take away restaurant in Manchester, by a mile. A real hidden jem!

“Great food, friendly staff”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

Went here for a meal with the Husband, and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Our curries were delicious (if a little on the spicy side!), and the service was good begin with, but did tail off towards the end - I think it's because we were tucked away in a corner.
I was quite suprised as to how quiet it was, although there is a lot of choice in Didsbury - now there are 3/4 curry houses to choose from on the main strip of Burton Road alone.
A great curry house, we will certainly be back.

“Our favourite Indian”
Reviewed October 5, 2012

Almost a monthly trip for my family..
Run by the former manager and chef from the Great Kathmandhu ~ keen to do as well as their neighbour ~ service is a little bit better/quicker ~ the food is just as nice (fresh herbs and a brilliant amount of heat tailored to your needs, non fatty meat and brilliant hans) and the setting is a bit better .. It may be a suburb but its classy and worth a go - oh, and dont forget the Kathmandhu beer ~ very special..

“Great night, great menu choices”
Reviewed August 29, 2012

I was looking forward to this. A curry night in Manchester for the southern softies!
After a lovely day spent in the company of our friends we met a couple more and went to the Namaste Nepal.

The interior was your typical curry house type. Nice colours and traditional music playing in the background.

There was a previous review which said something along the lines of "lack of menu choice" Do me a favour!
This was obviously written by a rival eatery.

I normally know what to choose but there were so many mouthwatering choices on the menu. Some straight Nepalese, Indian or a fusion of the two.

I went with the chicken balti, my wife went with the garlic lamb, with extra garlic (no goodnight kiss for her from me).

Both dishes were absolutely delicious. The rest of our party were all happy with their dishes and the portion sizes.

The service was excellent and they made sure they took the correct order. One of the party had to wait a couple of minutes to receive his main after ours but he was kept informed by the friendly staff.

Good value for money (about £20 each) for the amount of food we devoured.

Great company and great food.

We would definitely return here to tackle that menu again.
