Once again Namaste village has impressed us. We chose to have our last meal out before going into Tier 4 at our favourite restaurant and we weren't disappointed.
Looking forward to visiting again as soon as we are allowed.

Outstanding variety of vegetarian and vegan options, great chilled atmosphere, aesthetic decor. Food is an explosion of flavours, great if you’re looking for something to break your routine. Definitely recommend dahi puri for starters- it’s the best thing I’ve tried in months. Went to celebrate birthday with my friend and we both got cooking books as a gift ❤️

Amazing authentic flavours, excellent staff and throughly enjoyable dining experience. It is refreshing to find a restaurant who celebrate the bold Indian flavours, rather than trying to tone it down and appease a western palette.

If it wasn't for the rather poor portion sizes, I would rate them among the top 5 places I have ever dined in.

Namaste Village
Responded on 2 November 2020

Thank you for the wonderful rating & your recommendation. We do trust that while we serve Indian food it is important it reflect the authentic flavours and taste to the required extent, and not just appear Indian visually. Thank you for appreciating our stand there. While we are priced fairly we also are keen to be generous with our portions. It indeed is a miss on check from us. We are sorry you had a different experience on that but be assured that it is not the norm. See you soon again.

Here for a long weekend and had found Namaste Village through trip advisor and the great reviews. They were right! Lovely staff - our waitress was wonderful - and fabulous food in a striking venue. We both agreed it was the best Indian meal we have had in a long while. Very different and varied venue, knowledgable staff, the restaurant feels very safe in these strange and constrained times. Highly recommend. Hope to come back again. Shame Kent is not closer!
