    Best indian restaurant in Cambridge! (Which is why it is usually packed so I highly recommend that you reserve in advance) The dosa's are always my go to when in Namaste village but the curries are also amazing, though beware of their spice levels, they are not lying when they say it is hot!

    We were put in front of the window, where it was very draughty near the front door. I wish we had asked to be moved to a warmer spot. No one came near us to take our order for drinks or food, and in the end we had to ask for service. The food took a long time in coming (although the place was nearly empty) and the people near to us were served before us. It was as though we were invisible. The food was fine, but why did we have to wait so long to get some service? It spoiled the atmosphere. I am sure the staff who run the restaurant mean well, but I would never go there again, despite the enthusiastic reviews online.

    The service was erratic but friendly during our visit. The food was fine but we didn't love it and given the competition from similar restaurants in Cambridge, Namaste isn't quite as good.

    As a confirmed pair of meat eaters, we weren’t sure what to expect, but based on other reviews we decided to give it a try. The place was very busy when we walked in, always a good sign of good food! Greeted straight away and shown to our prebooked table. Staff were very quick to come and get drinks order, closely followed by taking our food order. Starter arrived very quickly, piping hot and superbly flavoured. The best onion bhaji either of us had ever tasted and the lightest poppadoms we’ve ever come across. Main was full of flavour and an ample amount of food. The naan bread was again the best I’ve tasted. A definite 10 out of 10 experience and we wouldn’t hesitate to eat there again.

    Good range of vegan options - nice to see vegan garlic butter naan, vegan lamb and chicken options, which you don't get in most Indian restaurants. Some of the food could do with more salt/spice, but nice overall.

    Love the decor, love the menu. Unfortunately our food was all a little too spicy…even paneer butter masala which is usually mild. We had one lovely waiter, but otherwise the staff were quite incompetent-we had to ask for water, more drinks and old glasses and plates were not cleared, leaving our table very full and messy! Would like to return, but there are a few issues that need ironing out to ensure this business thrives!

    Very nice decor, food, ambience and staff. Service was quick, polite and unobtrusive. The food was excellent for all of our party and clearly described on the menu. The quality and authenticity of the food is so good that the fact it is vegetarian or vegan is irrelevant - the meat eaters in our party thoroughly enjoyed their meals, just as much as the vegans.

    Clean and bright restaurant, a fair amount of ambiental noise. Food was tasty but a little greasy and salty for our taste. Great to have a full veggie / vegan menu though. Service was good. Prefer Montaz restaurant in Newmarket, but would bring kids here.
