“Not your typical Indian restaurant”
Reviewed August 23, 2012

The flavors were Indian, no doubt, but combined in creative ways to make it a unique experience. The service was excellent.

“Worth a detour”
Reviewed May 25, 2012 via mobile

Excellent Indian. A nice atmosphere, gently new age. The food was a cut above the usual South Asian.

“Good Food”
Reviewed January 11, 2012

I brought my daughter's here for lunch before they headed back off to college. The place is in an old house which makes for a neat environment. The food was very good, just the right amount of spice! I like my foods spicy and they actually have SPICY food!

“Delicious, Inviting, Authentic”
Reviewed November 2, 2011

The Namaste Cafe in Minneapolis, MN is a must for anyone who loves Indian/Nepalese curries and an interesting selection of appetizers which include traditional street food, not commonly found on menus. Don't miss the mamacha (dumplings) and the Namaste curry. If you like lamb, no one does it better!
