Namaste is one of our favorite restaurants. We have eaten here probably 20 times over the past several years. They have the most consistently excellent service and food of any restaurant we have tried. They also have awesome platters (meat or vegetarian) that have several small portions of their best dishes, thats what we always have. Highly recommended!!!!
Blander than last time – The service is fine and the food is good, but they don't seem to be using as much spice as they used to. Most of the customers are not from South Asia, and the food seems to be geared towards those who don't like much spice.
It's a good place to stop at for a decent, quick lunch, but I wouldn't go out of my way for it.
Maybe in 2001. Now...not so much. – Terrible food. Bad service even when the restaurant was empty. Their waiters use the filthy restroom, then go back to work without wshing their hands, even when a customer is in there with them. They charge full price for a glass of wine, even though they only bring you a half glass.
I love Namaste! It's definitely my favorite Indian restaraunt in the area and has become my family's go-to choice for celebration dinners. The Baigan Bharta is by far my favorite thing on the menu, and the naan is consistently fluffy and perfect. Everyone who works there has been very friendly and attentive. While I agree that the decor is very modest, my focus is on the food, and I've always been very happy with that. The people who complained in their reviews that they had to ask for raita or side dishes obviously didn't read the menu, because it's very clear that they need to be ordered separately. My one wish is that they would add this appetizer I've had in Indian restaraunts in DC but have never found out here called aloo papri-- little potato puffs, chick peas, tamarind chutney, raita, and coriander chutney all mixed together. Then it would be perfect.
Barely satisfactory – My wife and I were barely satisfied by this restaurant. We will not return because, although the food was decent, there are many better places in Denver. The raita was watery, and our chicken curry was not served with any raita until we asked the waiter for some. A picture on the wall near us was falling apart, and the tableclothes were not changed after each customer, something quite unappetizing. The service was barely satisfactory- the waiter assumed we wanted the buffet at lunch and so failed to bring a menu until we asked. On the plus side, the restaurant looked like it served good food, and our waiter gave us the name of an item that wasn't on the menu so we could order it next time.
Best Indian Food In Southwest Denver – This is the best Indian food in Southwest Denver and the price is right. Every dish that I have had is great, and the cheese naan is the best I have ever had. Amazingly, there is never a wait. The service has always been great as well.
Needs some help – I lived in Northern California for 10 years, and Chicago for 5. I have been to many Indian restaurants. I can say there is nothing special about this place. It was overpriced. The atmosphere made me feel like I was in a hotel lobby style restaurant. My recommendation, paint your walls something besides white. Dim the lights, and get rid of the TV. All of your staff should wear Indian clothing, not just the women. Also, there were no Indians dining in the restaurant. That tells me what Indians think of it. I left hungry and no side dishes were served with my meal. My waiter didn't even know what I was talking about for desert.
