Hands down the best Indian Food I have experienced, and the price was an absolute steal! Great service as well - can highly recommend this place.

This was our 3rd trip to Namaste, we sincerely apologize for the disturbsion our visit caused to the server. She apperently left her personality at home before showing up for work, I have never meet such a rude waiter. We arrived a bit early around 18:30 and since only one table was occupied I politely asked the waiter " is it open" the answered me with "what do you think" and walked away. We waited 10 min before she came to take our order. We ordered Ticka Masala, the food as always quite nice as well as other times we have been there.
At the end we happily paid the bill and she didn't even have it in her to say "thanks"

Bottom line...
The food was good but she ruined the experience.

We will never pay this place another visit.

Now you’d expect to be warmly welcomed to the restaurant but this person must have been having a bad day as her mannerisms were lacking of warmth let alone personality.

We were shown to our table but it took 10 minutes before our drinks order was taken. The place was not busy. The bar only has small bottled beers so another negative, as you have to have a nice cold pint of draught Indian lager.

The menu choice is ok but the lay out is a little confusing.

We ordered onion bhaji starters and chicken tikka along with two main dishes of chicken Karai and chicken masala, only to be told by the surly person that we ordered too much food. I found that a little condescending as it’s up to the customer on how much food they order...

Now when you order starters you expect a small portion but credit where credit is due these were huge and one would have fed four. They really ought to point this out to save customers ordering too much. The bhaji was tasty but a little oily. The chicken tikka kebabs were ok but lacked seasoning but were tender.

The mains were not great as they use thigh meat when really it should be breast. The texture and overall flavor was lacking in being able to distinguish the difference between the two and off putting. Not a good experience.

Overall the whole experience was poor from the service to the quality of the meal.

We had a dinner reservation and the staff were just acting really really strange. We tried to order appetizers from the menu, and the weird waiter didn't listen to us and said: I'm gonna bring you this and this... Um, okay, we went with it because he knows best, right? He then forgot about us and we then waited for about 30 min. After that a lady came to check if we ordered anything. Well yes, we've been waiting! Anyway, the food was ok. Mine was great, my husband's was tasteless, which is very weird for Indian cuisine. Luckily I got a big portion, so we both ate that. His remained almost untouched. I don't know, maybe we just came at the wrong time, they were all acting really strange and we didn't feel very comfortable.

We were stuck with where to eat the day after New Years, came across this place and it was about 8.45pm, we were a group of 5 and the staff accommodated us no problem even though they were close to closing for the night. They were knowledgeable about the food and gave us advice on not ordering too much (always nice to have!!) the food was lovely and we were not rushed at all. We were so impressed we took other friends back a couple of days later!!
