Nice clean restaurant with a nice ambiance.
Reason for the 2 star rating is we are disappointed with our food order. We order Indian quite often however first time from this establishment, upon ordering we confirmed that our dishes would be dairy-free (Aloo Gobi and Chana Masala), what they did in fact was change the aloo golbi as the same sauce as the chana masala which was disappointing because we wanted two different flavoured items but ended up with dishes that practically tasted the same.
My wife and I dined in this restaurant for one of the best evening Indian meals we have ever had. The staff are wonderful and helpful and take time to explain the menu and ensure that you enjoy the dining experience in their restaurant. It is also extremely great value for money.
It's a rather spacious restaurant and tends to be one of the quieter places in the area. The food is very tasty and the waiters are very polite. Been there couple of months ago, not a good experiene food was ok, bad customer service.
Not so authentic Indian food. Hate the spice levels where you end up getting raw heat of red chilli which completely overpowers any dish.
Really like the spinach curry. The tandori chicken on the other hand needs a bit more flavours
This Namaste Express on Great South Road has some awesome lunch deals, which are only about $10.99 - e.g. rogan josh, beef jalfreezi, chicken tikka masala and a whole lot more. The meals include your choice of dish, with rice, and a plain naan. You can upgrade the naan for about $1.50 to your choice of flavour - e.g. chilli, cheese and garlic naan. Even with the upgrade, an indian lunch meal for $12.49 is great value. For a couple of dollars extra, you can include a soft drink too. The food is always piping hot, as it is made freshly when you order it. I must have eaten here over 20 times, and I've not had a bad experience yet. Great place to eat, drink and be merry!
