My first restaurant meal since lockdown. Long time self isolating so unaccustomed to masks etc. As always Namaste is welcoming and friendly and the food is exceptional. Great service, great tastes. I'll be back. Many times.

Fantastic service, as always. We had not been for a while and had almost forgotten just how good this place is. Exquisite food at a very reasonable price, served in a cool, yet vibrant atmosphere. Thankfully, we cannot visit every week!

If you're looking for something authentically Southern Indian that is delicious, friendly and affordable then this is your place. I love Namaste and it's always a real treat to have one of their dosas.

Always love coming here all the way from Essex. Whenever I am in Norfolk a trip to Namaste Village is on the cards. Best Indian food flavours I’ve ever experienced! Veggie and vegan so never have to worry.

It was very overcrowded and so noisy we couldn’t here the waitress speaking even though she was shouting and she couldn’t hear us,our table wasn’t ready when we arrived even though we pre booked 2 weeks beforehand ,they ended up shoving two tables together,no cutlery ,no table setting. No social distancing. People were all walking around without masks. The food was okay but not great and the whole experience was uncomfortable and unenjoyable. We have been here before and had a great time but had booked this for a special occasion and were made to feel like an afterthought. I won’t go back for a while.

Didn't realize this was a vegetarian restaurant when we booked. But don't be put off, the food was great and lovely surroundings. My only disappointment was the kulfi ice cream which was a bit watery.

Excellent food although personally would prefer more Indian options instead of burgers and pizza. Atmosphere a bit lacking but seating comfortable and bar area nice. Toilets excellent.
A bit pricier in the end than I expected but loved the idea of paying extra to offer a free meal to someone. Admirable ethics. All covid guidelines scrupulously followed.

When we arrived, we were not aware it was a vegetarian restaurant but no problem.
This was, by far, one of the best meals we've had and we will return.
Great service, great food and a great price.

Such a great Resturant with a family feel. Amazing food, lots of different things rather than the usual Indian curries. Staff friendly & helpful when trying to make a decision on what to have (without being pushy) all in all a fabulous meal! We will return !
