Best in a looooong time. My wife and I have eaten Indian food from Singapore to HK to London to S. Cal and this was some of the best. Friendly attentive staff, chef shared receipts, owner gave us extra carrot salad and the best mint chutney ever. We went 2 days in a row, and took home 4 to go boxes in our cooler for trip back to Califonia. Very tasty and fresh, I would go back if I was ever to visit Vancouver or Portland again. Do yourself a favor and try it. I expected little and got lots. The negative reviews must like to eat at Denny's because this was worth the trip and that was only lunch at 6.95
Real bad experience...better to avoid. We went to lunch buffet, lentil sambar was converted to lentil soup. There were not many good items in the buffet and the food tasted like it was old, not fresh at all.Also, the service was very unprofessional. If you really want to taste Indian food please try somewhere else.
Exotic ethnic food in Vancouver, WA.
One of my favorite places. Food is a good value if you hit the buffet M-Sat for lunch. Look for a coupon in the local paper or ad flyers.
You will almost feel guilty for using a coupon here. Food is exotic, well prepared, and the atmosphere is warm. My new favorite is the Nan bread, the fried vegetables (indian french fries?), the tandoori chicken and its curry partner. Try the tamarind with the Nan bread (must have!).
I have never come here for dinner, its expensive, so hit it on a Saturday for lunch and be pleased.
Authentic Indian. Having lived in England, and eaten at a gazillion Indian restaurants, I can say, with no reservations, that Namaste is as authentic as I've found in the States. The lunch buffet is tremendous, service is excellent, price is right. The makhani isn't like the red, tomatoey tripe usually served, the samosas are heavenly, it's all just plain fab. If you're in Vancouver, make it a habit; if you're in Portland, take a drive. You won't be disappointed!
Disappointed Diner. Food is mediocre, but service is very unprofessional. I ordered Tandoori shrimp which arrived very dry and inedible. I sent it back and ordered tandoori chicken instead. The bill came and I was charged for both. I mentioned it to the waitress. She left and did not come back for 10 minutes. I went up to the desk and they took the less expensive chicken dish off my bill but I was told the owner said I had to pay for the inedible shrimp entree. I asked to speak to the owner. He told me tandoori seafood is always dry, and then finally agreed to charge me for the chicken instead. He was very rude, and I will not be back.
