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.

Very good! My wife found it a little too spicy even though she ordered a mild dish, but still enjoyed the flavours

Excellent food. Thoughtful and helpful service. Went with a group of three so we did some sharing. All were tasty and well spiced. Very generous portions. Good beers on tap. Definitely going again as was great to find a place open for lunch downtown

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.

I love the different dishes Namaste offers! There were so many servers standing around but we had to enquire as to where are drinks were. Several servers meant that one didn't know when the other had taken our order.

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.

Birthday group of 6. About $300 worth of good and drink so a big night for us. Service a little slow on getting all people lined up with alcohol. Food was great, spicy and well timed in terms of bringing it in patches....

Horrible, really loud motorcycle and cars driving past, really slow service, bland flavourless food, waited what seemed like forever just to order tpu see other patrons also getting annoyed, main course eventually arrived without rice and I kept having to ask the servers how long as our main courses were going cold, 15 minutes later and we could start eating only to find out just how bland the dishes were, go elsewhere, plenty of other better Indian restaurants around.

Beautifully decorated and clean restaurant with traditional Indian artefacts in addition to gold decor and stunning crystal chandeliers scattered throughout. Service was friendly, polite and prompt. Food quality was very good; fresh, aromatic, little oil and hot. Garlic nan was wonderful; thinner than traditional nan allowing for a little crispness - garlicky delight!

I have been to Kingston Namaste a few times now and every time I have thoroughly enjoyed the ambiance and service. Food is excellent and authentic. Being an indian I am a bit fussy when it comes to eating Indian food in restaurants but I have enjoyed every dish I have ordered. I had brought a few friends on couple of occasions and they were also impressed by the whole package. I must say that waitresses with their beautiful smile makes all the customers feel very welcomed. I would absolutely definitely 100% recommend it !

Very poor service and we were mostly ignored - at the beginning and throughput the meal
Large parties and Skip the dishes seemed to be the priority
Female washroom unsatisfactory
No one came by to see about another drink
After food served took another 20 minutes to get the naan bread- and then only one order
Servers seemed uninvolved
Other patrons were complaining too
Very unfortunate for us with so much potential there
All this spoiled the pretty good food
We won’t go back - but may use a food service app and avoid the disappointment that was the restaurant experience!
