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

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

Excellent vegetarian curries and great Dosa's. Their food makes a nice change from the usual heavy Bangladesh style found at most curry restaurants in Norwich.

I have dined at Namaste a few times now and am always very pleased with the friendlyness and efficiency of the staff,the speed at which the food is served but also the fact you never feel rushed either. The food is fantastic,hot and made using the finest fresh ingredients. Unfortunately the Paneer Labbabdar and Biryani rice is so good i always end up ordering that and should really try some of the other dishes. This was the first time i have ever been on a Saturday and the restaurant was very busy but this did not effect the service or the way we were made to feel important. The building is large with a very high ceiling so the noise level even though the restaurant was full remained at a level where conversation was easy and not strained. I can highly recommend this place and will certainly be visiting again....many times i hope.

Amazing vegan food! The vegan chicken butter masala and korma are two of the best dishes I’ve ever had. A
Lovely, attentive service from wonderful staff. Quite a loud atmosphere, but it was pretty busy. Looking forward to returning.

Little on the pricey side for some dishes and service charge added to the final bill was not well received for 2 of us. The food, service and aesthetics of the restaurant are great and would highly recommend.

Seal of approval from a mumbaikar livening in the UK ! Absolutely loved the street food . Loved the masala dosa . The chilly chicken was the right spice if you love spicy food . Definitely felt like food from back home.

First time at Namaste and will certainly be going back! Our eldest is turning veggie and so we are trying to eat at as many veggie places as we can to support her. Namaste was a great choice not just because it is veggie, but because it is bloody delicious!

The chilli stir fry curried paneer was exceptional, the special chat outstanding and the rest of the food did not disappoint either. They have even converted our meat loving uncle!

Would totally recommend!

Food was lovely as always. It is always a pleasure eating at Namaste village, authentic food with a slight edge to it. You get that extra special touch with the food, the fact that many dishes are vegan helps as well!!!
We had the street food chat dishes and if you closed your eyes you could imagine you were strolling the streets of India…

For the last couple of years we have been meaning to try this, I have no idea why it took us so long, it certainlyn not be two years before we come back!

Everything about this place is special, the building, the staff , the decor and the food is fresh, perfectly cooked and beautifully presented.

This was the best Indian food I've ever had in the UK. The tastes brought me back to India! The chat, puris and dosas were stand out dishes that I'd definitely have again. The service was brilliant too - so quick and friendly. It's a shame I don't live in Norwich otherwise I'd be here all the time!

The food at Namaste was delicious - a blend of flavours that are not overwhelmed by hot chilli spice. The range of menu refreshingly wider than the usual Indian restaurant repertoire, with several regional and house specialities. Good ambience and service not over-attentive but always available.
