We have been regular customers at this small family run restaurant for over 20 years, we have always been well received and the food is very good in terms of quality, quantity and price. It can get busy like many places so book in advance if visiting at peak times.

7 of us just turned up which was no problem (although it was a Tuesday evening). Good menu, reasonably priced. The manager was a bit like a car salesman, upselling starters, additional sides when it was clear what each of us wanted to order. Food was good, although I did expect a bit more of a kick in the more... More

Thank you for taking the time to review Namaste. Our manager does become a little "excited" sometimes and sends his apologies! We have noted your comments re level of 'kick' and as this varies from place to place, would ask you to please mention that you want dishes a little hotter and chef will happily oblige. Thank you again. Regards. More

Ordered the chicken murghlai and a butter chicken. 1 chicken tikka and chicken shashlick to start. My murghlai had no spice at all and was completely devoid of any spice or Indian flavours. The starters were very very mild too. I came as I was desperate as I had to get home and so needed a take away. I will... More

We are sorry to hear you did not enjoy our food. The Mughlai dish is very mild made with almonds, cream, etc and spices which do not have 'heat'. Also, we have reduced the amount of salt we use as a result of customer feedback. May be you were expecting more of a curry flavour which would have been prevalent... More

A recent visit to this restaurant for a family Christmas celebration has certainly prooved one thing. We will never go again. The main man in charge was rude. Whilst serving the courses he was impolite even telling one member of the party in a very abrupt manner "move out of the way". The food was tasteless and bland. Towards the... More

I am sorry to learn of your experience at Namaste. When serving food, the hot plates are extremely hot and the serving dishes very hot.
