We discovered this place by accident but were very pleased with the food, price and decor. For about $10, you can return to the bountiful buffet as many times as you wish. The naan was fresh and hot, there were many hot and cold, vegetarian and meat dishes. We ordered wine which was also reasonable. There is a small dessert... More

The condition of the restaurant (tables, walls, chairs, floor) made me feel like I was eating in a busy high school cafeteria. There were large scratches on the walls, food and napkins on the floor, just general chaos. The food serving line was clean and orderly, although the items were not as hot (temperature) as I personally prefer. There were... More

We always enjoy the food here, it is buffet style and of course ALL YOU CAN EAT. The homemade Ice-cream is amazing. What we cannot understand is why they don't fix this place up a bit. Yes it appears sanitary while at the same time worn appliances are not appetizing such as the color of the rice steamer. Furniture is... More

Don't let the location deter you. This great Indian food buffet was a surprise to us, given its location next to a hotel. The food was fresh and delicious for both the vegetarians and carnivores in our group.

I've eaten Indian food all over the country. This place is not good at all, but unfortunately with no other options for food when staying at the hotel in the same parking lot, I was stuck eating here for two days. Day one was awful and my stomach was having an internal war going on after the food. Day two,... More

I went for lunch and enjoyed the freshness and vegetarian options and spicy curry. There was limited gluten free option, as most of the vegetarian dishes were fried or battered. I liked the unlimited naan. The staff is friendly!

Was craving Indian, did some searching, and Namaste was not only ranked well, but was on my way home too (SCORE!). The set up is buffet style, but you can also order off a menu, learned that on my way out :-(, was really wanting Vindaloo, but tried some other main dishes that I like as well. I got my... More
