Namaskar is one of our go-to restaurants. The food right across the board is spectacular and authentic (we travel to India). The people are just simply wonderful - we always leave feeling like we've been pampered and spoiled. We can't recommend this restaurant more highly.

Visited Namaskar for dinner whilst staying in Havelock North and was really impressed. The Samosa Chaat was an excellent appetiser and the Butter Chicken and Balti curry also superb. Best Indian meal we had both had in sometime!
