Namaste is an Indian restaurant in Nugegoda with an attractive design which we had passed many times and finally decided to give it a try.
We walked in without making a reservation and were directed to a table for four. As soon as we walked in, the decor inside did not meet my expectations. It felt a bit dark which I don’t have a problem with but there was a TV sticking out from one of the top corners in the main dining area. A loud Indian movie was on, you can only see this in low budget cafeterias and restaurants. (it would have been perfectly fine if the food was cheap).
The service wasn’t great but it was ok. We spoke to a waiter/manager that we are vegan and looking for dishes with no animal ingredients. He helped us to select a couple of dishes and went away. A few minutes later another waiter came to take an order from us. We asked him to invite the same waiter the one who spent time with us and helped to order the dishes. However, the waiter/manager didn’t show up and we had to go through the ordering process all over again.
We had rice and vegetable curry it was ok but not exceptional. The food did not wow us and the price wasn’t cheap either.
