Looking at the other reviews - saw that other customers had recognized that the dishes reminded them of UK curries. Delighted to see Chicken Dansak and Rogan Josh. Hotter than we were used to but delicious.

For a road trip, Kingston is becoming more common for us. Loving authentic Indian cuisine, and none available in our small town, we decided to try Namaste. From beginning to end the food service and ambiance were excellent. 4 stars? I have sent a private note to the restaurant.

So much better than our last time here!
Greeted right away and seated on the patio as requested
Orders taken and drinks served immediately
Food arrived shortly after and other than one switched chicken dinner-all was tasty and spiced as indicated by our server
All in all an excellent experience with good food and service
We were all very happy with the restaurant and staff
There were even 2 former colleagues dining inside!

Food was wonderfully tastey, going to make one item st home it was so good. The wait time from being sat down 5:30 to order being taken 6:30 was way too long. There seemed to be sufficient staff, many just observing what was happening.

The food, and the service was excellent. Only one small complaint was that our main course came a bit to quickly, we had hardly started our starter platter when they came out with the main dishes…..they need to time things better so that you finish one course before the next is served. Also our bill was brought to us before we were asked if we would like dessert or coffee, so had to ask if we could see a dessert menu. Please let your customers enjoy their meal without being rushed.

Chef Kumar’s food is very elevated and incredibly delicious. It reminded me a lot of Vij’s, which is my favourite west coast Indian restaurant. Overall great restaurant, perfect ambiance, spacious and clean.

Dreadful experience here. We booked a table for 530pm through OpenTable. When we arrived they did not appear to be aware of the booking. We were sat down by 530 but other than being served drinks, we were not asked for an order. Eventually after waiting 30 minutes we asked to be able to place an order and explained that we were short for time. It then took another hour before our food arrived. We did speak to the manager who assured us our food was on its way, but it still took another 15 minutes from that time. By the time our meal arrived we were so stressed at being late for our next commitment and very hungry that we didn’t really take too much notice but I think the food was reasonable. The bill come to over $100 for three of us, which would have been reasonable were it not for the dreadful service. Despite speaking to the manager, we were at no time offered any kind of apology for the service. This was our last meal with our son before leaving him at university and it was completely ruined by this restaurant’s appalling service and attitude. We will never eat here again.

A lot of staff that were very friendly and attentive. The food was excellent. I thought the music was odd, modern hip hop by Drake etc. was a strange choice.
We were sitting on the patio, but asked to come in due the wasps, they were very accommodating.
Great experience overall.

We love the food but the service must be improved. There seems to be NO proper training for servers. You wait and wait for drink orders, you wait for napkins after the appetizers have been served, you wait for cutlery and you have to ask for empty dishes and drink glasses to be removed. Totally not necessary and this will keep customers from returning.

We had lunch and as it was out first time we had the sampler tray. five dishes with appetizer and desert for under $20. Everything was excellent and butter chicken was outstanding. Service was god without being overly watchful. All staff in saris looked good. Service was not fast but not slow. Nice pace to talk and eat. We will be back.
