Dosas were delicious, especially the Namaste special. Also recommend the Chef special aubergine dish - smokey and delicious. Peanut chat was excellent. Overall thoroughly recommend, wish we live closer so that we could come again.

The sharing starter platter was really tasty but needed a couple of sauces with it as it was dry. Of the four main courses our party had, the chilli gobi was nicest.

Super charming staff and delicious vegetarian food. Our first visit and we asked for advice from the staff- which was helpful. Loved the idea of making £4 donation so that someone could eat who couldn’t afford to….you buy a sticker that goes on the restaurant window which shows how many free meals are available. Other diners looked relaxed and well fed and there was a gentle buzz of good conversation and laughter . We certainly plan to go again.

Perfect Pure Vegetarian Hotel...Drove all the way from Cambridge to Norwich for Birthday treat of a friend at Namaste Village.
It was worth a visit, food was awesome. Ambience is also very good and The lovely Hindi Melody's were also mesmerizing.

Thank you Namaste Village Team.

Staff were so lovely - the lady that served us (not sure on her name but she had glasses and mentioned in the old branch she worked behind the bar) was so lovely and chatty with us! Food was excellent as well.

If I could give a sixth star for table service I would. The waitress was very helpful, knowledgeable and polite. It really made the whole experience that much better.

Myself and my friends will certainly be back.

Been to Namaste several times and I'm sure the food gets better each time. Staff are amazing, lovely people and really friendly. Wish I lived locally so I could enjoy food from here weekly. So please this restaurant made it through covid and stayed open because they truly deserve success.

Thank you so much.

Food was completely amazing, was so great to have so many vegan choices on the menu- we could even have the naan bread which is very rare! Service was great and everything was delicious, shame we live so far away but if we are ever back in Norwich, we will definitely pay Namaste Village another visit!

Booked for my son and I to have dinner and catch up. Didn’t realise was vegetarian until I struggled to find lamb on the menu.

Wow… what an amazing meal! One of the best Indian meals I have had in a long time. Will definitely be going back.

Very attentive friendly staff, food was incredible and most of our group were not vegetarian. Did not miss meat at all, lots of flavour in the dishes.
Very relaxed attitude and didn’t feel rushed at all.

I have been to Namaste Village a few times now, with friends. The food is superb. I used to live in India and I think I can say that the dosas and snacks are among the very best I have eaten outside of India. The sweets are very good as well. I love the Hindustani and on a recent visit the friend I was with had kheer (Indian milk rice). I had a taste and it reminded me of home cooking in Western India. Just go and eat there!

Nice food but didn't have the wow factor. For a vegetarian restaurant we didn't have any vegetables even though we ordered a mixed veg dish. We ended up with 2 paneer cheese dishes. Really enjoyed the appetisers but the mains in comparison were bland though pleasant enough.

Delicious food, kind people, spaced out tables. What is there not to love! We go regularly to Namaste because it never fails to live up to our previous expectation. Thank you to everyone who runs this place, works here. You make the restaurant feel so relaxed yet so lively at the same time. And to the chefs, you are incredible. Thank you for all the flavours!

We were extremely impressed with the consistent brillaint quality of both service and food during our visit last night. Attentive staff but not overbearing. Delicious food which we didnt wait too long for. Accommodating despite 4 people cancelling last minute for a 20 person booking. Beautiful interior!

Everyone walked out with a smile on their face.

Absolutely superb

This restaurant had a colourful atmosphere and quick, friendly service--not to mention great food in generous portions! We appreciated that the menu had not only the familiar menu items, but also new things that we could try, all of which was delicious. I was also really impressed with how generous Namaste is with its knowledge, offering classes and even advertising its instructional Youtube channel. Would recommend to anyone living in/near, or visiting, Norwich.

Highly recommend, great vegan options - making naan and other non vegan dishes / sides vegan adds about 50p to the item, but thought the experience was excellent
