Living reasonably close by my family frequents this establishment a lot. If you like Indian cuisine this is the place to be. From the most simple "Home Style Curry" to Bunha Gosht, Okra and much more. Even my sometime vegetarian wife is always delighted with the food. There is a curry for every day of the week. Service is very... More

We were in Pretoria for a work trip for about two weeks. We visited Namaskar three times and the food was always very tasty. The owner of the restaurant was very friendly and he helped us a lot to choose some very good South African wines. He also helped us to choose food as we liked, because reading the quitre... More

The last time we visited Namaskar, the food didn't disappoint but the service was really slow. This time the service was brisk, the options were explained to us and the food arrived promptly. The flavours were excellent,m with a perfect balance of spices. Prices were reasonable, portion sizes were more than adequate and their wine prices are particularly reasonable. We'll... More

It was amazing. The restaurant is beautiful and the staff is super friendly and helpful. The menu is huge but the owner explained all items and everything tasted fantastic. Will definitely go back again and again.

We were impressed when we walked in. The décor is stunning and everything looks very posh. The menu goes on forever and so does the wine list. We decided to ask the waitress for some guidance and offered the most popular dishes: Tandoori chicken and lamb and Rogan Josh. We ordered one of those wonderful breads with a spicy potato... More

Namaskar is tucked away in a shopping centre that's a bit off the beaten track, but it's well worth making the effort to find it. Walk through the doors, and you're transported into an elegant, upmarket restaurant, where you can relax and enjoy the cuisine. The food more than meets your expectations: this is stunning, authentic Indian cuisine which caters... More

I have been to Namaskar twice, the second time was due to craving of authentic indian food and naan. The Dhal makhani is the best I have tasted. They have a large variety of drinks as well. The food is slightly pricey, but portions are big enough to justify the price. The indo-chinese menu is also great - try out... More

Lets face it Indian cuisine is not cheap, and if it is good luck. Namaskar is not the most expensive but by far one of the best we have ever experienced. This was not our first visit to them and neither will it be the last. We ordered a Chicken Korma for my wife an I had the Lamb Kohlapuri.... More

The food ambiance in restaurant is excellent and food is superb! Quality and taste was amazing but very pricy. There is ample space and very tastefully decorated. Service is also good. Location of the restaurant is not apt compared to the status of the restaurant.
