Service wasn’t great and the food was very average with small portions and overpriced. The atmosphere (setting) was nice.

Our visit to Namaste Lounge was great and the food was lovely. I think the only downside for me was that we had to request new plates 3 times as they were dirty with food debris and the service was a little slow to take the order.

Overall, it’s a bit pricey but I would go again as a special treat.

Amazing food and lovely outdoor area to eat. Fully sheltered, heated and blankets provided! Only let down was the poor customer service from the staff and the very long wait for our food and drinks.

The services els have dropped, very dissatisfied customers. We waited for the menus for over 20 mins, all the staff are new and that’s what we were reminded each time. No communication between the waiters, being told they could not accommodate a third person as they were busy but actually they was space and we were told to move to the lounge to have our desserts when no one was booked at our table. Service level was poor not what it once one. Staff didn’t look happy and not very welcoming celebrating a friends birthday. We still paid the service charge which was added to the bill.

Service is very poor !!! It was a good 15 min wait till we even got served from the door, then when we sat down waited 15 mins before someone came over with menus and then another 30 mins before someone came over to take our order. The dark skinned lady she was really lovely and efficient waitress . However food came pretty quick after and was good. Not impressed whatsoever with the cocktail tree , as I had called the restaurant prior to tell them it was my sisters birthday and I was told that sparklers come with the tree. It didn’t! I asked one of the bar boys and he said they don’t do sparklers so was a little confused. For the price you pay for the cocktail tree isn’t worth it when you can just get loads of individual cocktails than just settling for one kind. It was just disappointing that the restaurant didn’t do anything for the birthday.

The outdoor bit is great and warm with the heaters. They seemed to be short staffed though. The brought our mains out with the starters and then said I was supposed to tell them I wanted them seperatley because other people usually ask for them together. That was a first for me and I'm 55 years old. Also had to ask for the big plates a few times before getting them and ordering second round of drinks no one came to order and when they did took ages to bring them. Nice ambience and food but need to up their game on the quality and speed of service.

Awful! Arrived and ordered food and drinks.. We ordered one curry with four sides and two drinks, our curry came with two sides missing and no drinks. I asked numerous times for my sides, one side eventually made it to the table, the other didnt. The drinks came ten minutes after the food only once I had asked for them again, Just an absolute shambles. Wouldn’t recommend and will never be going again. Then they added a huge service charge?! The cheek.

Seated promptly, drinks served. Then sat 20 minutes before being asked about our order, followed by another 20 minutes before the food arrived.. one lady kept coming to check in between her rounds, but only when she got the chance. Food on the floor area and side of tables..

As much as we like the food and atmosphere of the place, the service can either be very good or very poor. Unfortunately, it was poor on this occasion.

Our table was booked for 5.30 for 2 hours- we were seated at 6.10, spoke to 4 different waiters they did not know why table was not ready, we eventually got seated, service extremely poor, when drinks did finally arrive one of the glasses was dirty with hair on, complaint and sent this back, when meal was ordered the mushrooms were cold, sent those back but no replacement given and then was put on bill, complained again and that was taken of bill and refused to pay service charge
The capacity at Nameste lounge was hugh, staff could not cope, they need to employee alot more staff to cope
Will not go there again

The food was amazing but the service was slow had to ask many times for our drinks that eventually came after we finished our meal and when the bill came it had items on that we had not ordered. They were very apologetic but it kind of ruined the evening for us. Will definitely come back but would hope for a better service. The outdoor area is beautiful with heaters and blankets if you get cold .

Food came quickly and was well received. But trying to get a waiters attention to take our order , order more drinks , pay the bill took an enormously long time . However when you look up u could see a flurry of staff at the door . It’s just not very organised or very professional. This is one area of the club that I hope it can improve

Service was very poor. We were early and not busy at the time.
I Was a regular before lockdown, but quite evident they had inexperienced staff there now.
Main came before starters
Starters arrived but no plates or cutlery / took a good few mins to come by which time food gets cold as outdoor. No serving spoons either.
Had to keep waving/ flagging down staff to clear plates..
35mins for our only main dish to come from finishing starters.
Again - no plates, cutlery or serving spoons.
Ordered 2 desserts... only 1 arrived because other was out of stock.
However charged us for both and had to claim a refund.

Positive: Food was excellent..

Food is always good - shame the service really let us down this time - our first family meal outside the house after 5 months!

Waitress who greeted us at the door was abrupt and rude and the waitress serving us wasn't helpful when we asked for suggestions. Felt like we were holding her up. Restaurant wasn't really busy as was weekday lunchtime so she didn't need to rush us.

Service was not great - you need to waive your waiting staff down if you want anything - we ordered non alcoholic cocktail - and they brought alcoholic one despite us asking the waitress who brought the drink over that it was definitely non-alcoholic. Not enough staff to cope with number of tables. Bar service is extremely slow - your food will arrive before your drinks!

The reason for my scoring; is that I understand you may have been short staffed. however waiting 35 mins for just pappodoms is unacceptable. I had to tell our very nice waitress that we are leaving and because of this she ensured we were looked after
It was both our belated birthday dinner and was ruined by a long night, where then had to just cancel it.

The food is decent, but service was terrible, with us having to ask for items at least twice on every occasion. They have put a marquee up over the beer garden which rings the ambience / feel that was there previously. We used to enjoy eating there in the fresh air on a sunny day, but now it feels a little tacky and cramped.

Shockingly poor experience, waited over an hour to be served.
In addition,Waiters were rude with no apology for the slow service.

Drinks took over an hour to come, food an hour an half later and what’s worse we were told to quickly leave as they were busy and needed the table back.

We will definitely will not return.

We booked brunch for our first family post lockdown get together and we were so impressed with the food. The staff went above and beyond to make sure we were happy. We had a mixture of the breakfast menu and the brunch menu, all the food was delicious especially the scrambled eggs! Thank you Namaste Lounge for a great experience and for making us feel safe without compromising the ambience.

We booked this for a High Chai booking but open table did not transpose that to the restaurant and thus we did not get high chai at the restaurant instead we had to book from the brunch menu and then when we asked about the main menu it wasn't being served untill 12pm. When we did order from the main menu at 1210 we didn't get the food till 1245 and as the booking was only for 2 hours we were asked to leave without finishing our food at 1pm.

I have been to namaste lounge before but this time the service was appalling I went for my sister's 21st and the staff could not do anything for us. Staff there are over worked I heard one member say she finished at 2am the day before and was back in at 9am. On this occasion I wouldn't recommend booking through Open Table as my booking details for high chai did not get sent through.
