We invite you to join us here at our authentic Indian, family-run restaurant and sample some of the finest Indian food Norfolk has to offer. Namaste Village is a traditional yet progressive Indian restaurant, serving vegetarian and vegan food from different regions of India, which is both healthy and delicious. The dishes on our menu are unique and they are developed from our family recipes. That is why the taste so different and unique. Come, see for yourself and experience the spirit and spice of India in this fine city of Norwich.
The fact of being a vegetarian restaurant should not be disappointing you. More than 70 % of our customers are not vegetarian and still this is rated as the number one Indian Restaurant in Norfolk on Tripadvisor and also featured in The Times as the 8th best curry house in Britain.

Excellent food as always with very friendly, helpful staff.
Would definitely recommend. One of the best Indian Restaurants i have been to.
Great food and we had a lovely waitress! Cannot wait to go back
Two of our party had never tried either Namaste or true Indian food. Both were well impressed and will return as soon as may be
Despite a few teething problems with their new ‘order at table’ service, the waiting staff coped well and the food was - as ever - amazing!
Good food, well presented, staff very helpful and welcoming.
Very friendly staff, delicious food freshly made and so tasty.
Gorgeous food, pleasant staff and beautiful building.
First time we've eaten there, and won't be the last. Very convenient parking opposite. The food was so different to that of the Indian restaurants we dined at before, but the absence of meat / fish was not even a factor, the different vegetarian dishes were so damn tasty. Fantastic service from all staff, really helpful. A really enjoyable meal in a nice light, airy restaurant.
The peanut chat is without a doubt, the best beer snack I've ever eaten as well
Delicious food and amazing, friendly service. Would definitely come back.
The food was tasty as always. What let things down a little was that the server forgot to get us the extra picked we had asked for and our order came with one dish missing - neither issue that big a deal and they were corrected.
When the bill came I was a bit surprised to see an extra 50p added to each dish because we had the vegan option. It may well be on the menu somewhere but I didn’t spot that and I don’t recall ever being charged it before.
Most importantly to me it seemed adherence to the whole COVID restrictions were being adhered to much less. Servers taking their masks of when speaking to people, no NHS app sign in to be seen at the entrance, we didn’t sign in at all, nor did I see anyone else sign in. I appreciate you have to book online, so they do have contact details, but that’s only for the person who made the booking, so no one else in the group would be contacted. Lots of people walking out the door marked entrance only and a sign in the toilet that said all surfaces have been sprayed with a chemical that gives something like 28 days protection against COVID. (Having googled it I’m not aware of any such chemical that is also good safe). I apologise if I’m wrong about anything there but I just didn’t see enough attention to the COVID restrictions to feel it was being well managed.
I’d recommend the food, but not sure about recommending eating in, with the controls they had in place last night.
Really wonderful atmosphere with beautiful decoration, all staff were attentive with excellent service. Food was also served in good time and everything was delicious. So lovely to go somewhere with so many vegan options.
An impromptu visit - and we were welcomed and treated to our favourite dahi puri, masala dosa and chili gobi; the delightful waitress even helped me to process my first Applepay payment by explaining what to press on my phone!
The waiting staff were really helpful on advising dishes to try as it was our first visit, and everything we tried was absolutely delicious. We will certainly be going back.
Amazing food!!! Being an Indian I find it hard to find a good Indian restaurant that our taste palette would enjoy. Without a doubt this is probably the best I’ve had in a while.
Amazing service, staff were all so welcoming and food was delicious!! We had a table of meat eaters and vegetarians/vegan and all were more than satisfied. Definitely returning
We discovered Namaste on our last visit to Norwich and vowed we would come back. The food is delicious and everything we have ordered the couple of times we have eaten here has been sublime. The staff are very attentive and friendly and just makes for an enjoyable experience. They also have a little shop where you can buy spices etc to help you cook your own Indian food at home. Would definitely recommend a visit and we will be back!
Really good food and amazing service..
Delicious food, served quickly and efficiently, by smiling staff.
No rush when we’d finished, we were able to sit and chat for half an hour after we’d paid the very reasonable bill.
My first visit to this wonderful place , a great foodie experience and such lovely staff, we will be back soon !
The Dosas are so special- always beautifully presented and then such great flavour. The Chat is out of the world- a taste explosion in the mouth
I have never been disppointed in my experince
Delicious food, great ambiance, what more could we want? A*
Really lovely flavours and great choice. Friendly, helpful staff who went above and beyond to make our meal special.
A Father’s Day treat was just that. The Mango Lassi, Dahi Puri, Chilli Gobi, Vegetable Butter Masala and Jasmine rice were a perfect combination. All served with the usual friendly courtesy in this stylish, yet comfortable, restaurant. A real pleasure!
Booked this restaurant on the basis that it was a short walk from the hotel - I didn't even look at the menu. Then I read the reviews and it was recommended by a friend. A very happy punt. Great food and service. It has a fantastic atmosphere, filled with all sorts of people. It's not the cheapest place to eat, but I'd never call it expensive. Excellent value, with very knowledgeable and helpful staff. I'll definitely come back.
Excellent, my favourite Indian restaurant in Norwich!
Will always recommend to friends & family
The restaurant is in an interesting, bright open building. The staff were very attentive and helpful. The food was delicious and we're looking forward to going back to try new dishes on the menu.
This is no ordinary Indian resto. The food is amazing the staff delightful and the resto is beautiful a bit quirky and very relaxed. This is our 3rd visit and we live inManchester!
The food was amazing as always. Staff are friendly and helpful
Fantastic meal, excellent service, friendly staff. Thank you!
As always a lovely evening, spent eating really good food with excellent service. Very full restaurant so was noisy with people enjoying good food and conversation.
Really tasty vegetarian food. Will definitely visit again.
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!
Excellent service and food. Staff very friendly and efficient. We were served by Vijay again and she’s lovely, recommended a few options and they were all very good.
Interesting menu, friendly and helpful service, and good value.
Great vibrant restaurant in the heart of Norwich. Great friendly staff. Ambience in restaurant was great, and the food was delicious. The owners were very accommodating to my dieting needs.
Great varied menu, very friendly staff and authentic venue. Excellent value for money, delicious food.
My favourite Indian restaurant in Norwich! Such lovely and friendly staff. The food was delicious! Would definitely recommend!
