Good Vegetarian Options
Are you looking for a real Indian dining experience ? Are you bored of greasy and heavy Indian food ? Do you even know what real Indian food actually tastes like ?

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.

Despite a few teething problems with their new ‘order at table’ service, the waiting staff coped well and the food was - as ever - amazing!

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

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.

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!

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.

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!

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.

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.
