We have eaten in at their restaurant for the first time in over a year and it was amazing. Great service and delicious food. We also ordered take out this month and always great food.

This is a nice restaurant for lunch and dinner. Lunch will give you an opportunity to try all their Dishes. My favorite dish there is the Paneer Tika And the Sag Paneer.

The restaurant is located at a shopping plaza, and the interior is exactly in line with other diners at such locations: square, booths and tables. Mustard yellow walls and red booth upholstery does not manage to give the slightest trace of Indian atmosphere. (Still, the...music does). So -a very romantic place to take your date this is not. But the food is a different story: The naan bread, especially garlic is very good, the poppadums not perfect, but the butter chicken and chicken vindaloo was among the best I’ve had in the US. Also the shrimp pakora as a starter may be recommended. A very good place if the food experience is the main focus.More

This establishment is my restaurant of choice when going to National Harbour for a concert. It's on the way, it's quiet, the food is excellent. Service good. You won't be disappointed. End it off with a cup of masala chai.

Excellent food, smooth service, pleasant surroundings. Just a nice place. Mostly they get takeout business, but I highly recommend for a good meal.

Delicious! This is one of my favorite Indian restaurants. Don’t let the fact that it is in a strip mall fool you. The food is delicious!!

Namaste has a reasonably priced, highly delicious buffet. Wondrous meals with great service and prompt attention to detail.

So nice to walk in and be quickly welcomed. Lunch buffet was an option but the three of ordered two mains, rise, and had to double the order of Naan. I have really missed good Indian food, and it was delicious to visit just a...taste of Indian for lunch.More

The chicken birani was very good as was the goat curry, butter chicken, and tandori chicken. The manager or owner asked the kitchen to make fresh naan for us. The food was good even though we went in at the last hour of the buffet...serving. The desserts were not as good, but if you're hungry for Indian cuisine the buffet was very well doneMore

The food is delicious I have a few favorites however the Chicken Birani is what I usually order. The lunch buffet is a great way to try multiple dishes. I definitely recommend this restaurant.
