As someone who spent two years in Delhi and visited around India, I must say that the Namastey restaurant in Faro pleasantly surprised me. The atmosphere is pleasant, the staff is smiling and provides excellent service. And the dishes? Excellent and pleasantly surprising. Everything we ordered from crispy spinach, papadam, naan, Malai-Kufta and chicken chili - was served in beautiful dishes and was very tasty. Definitely recommended for lovers of Indian food and those willing to try. the price? 44 euros per couple including sparkling water and a small bottle of white wine, definitely worth it!!!

An Indian in the very warm weather of Faro didn't seem like a great idea at the time but the cool restaurant and the great food soon changed my mind. We went straight for main courses each with a Chicken Goa and a Vegetable Biryani with a single portion of coconut rice and peshwari naan to share. The portions were just the right size and tasted great, we had a couple of soft drinks and the bill came to 30 euros which was very reasonable.

Great Indian food in Faro. We’ve had a bottle of Conde Villar - Alvarinho, which complemented the food very well. A selection of vegan starters and couple of mains + 2 different type of rice and naan; bill came to a reasonable €30 per person, and service was exquisite by Nega. Definitely would recommend!

My husband and I visited on Valentines Day, whilst spending a week on holiday in Faro. The place was very busy and we had not booked, but the waiter kindly found us a table. The waiters worked so hard all evening, turning the tables around so quickly, so that people coming in did not have to wait too long. This made it feel a bit frantic and rushed, but the service was excellent. There was a television on the wall opposite, which was very distracting and unnecessary We had read the excellent reviews on trip advisor, but were a bit disappointed with the food. We ordered poppadoms and chutney tray for starters. They were seeded and tasted a little different from those we have in uk - ok, but preferred our usual. The chutneys consisted of two tiny portions of a very runny mango and raita. For mains we both opted for the tandoori mixed platter, which was probably the dearest thing on the menu ,at nearly 20 euros, but not unreasonable. We asked if it would come with naan etc, but waiter said it didn’t and advised us to share a naan and a mushroom rice, which we did. We were disappointed to find that , though a huge portion, the meal consisted of mostly chicken, presented in different ways and a couple of tandoori prawns. Sadly the food was quite dry and did not come with any sauce to offset this; it was also incredibly salty. The rice and naan were both good. I’m not sure if we were just unlucky in our choice of food, as most people seemed to be enjoying their curries, which were considerably cheaper and maybe would have been a better option. We had one large cobra and half bottle of wine. The bill came to £55.58.

The best vegetarian curry that I've had outside of India. I had the Mailay Kofte and it was stunning, definitely the most tasty curry I've had since being in India. Also shared vegetarian samosas, pakora and roti which were also excellent. The portion size is perfect and served in individual pots with candle burners which look lovely. The staff were all very helpful and friendly and service was excellent. Price was also very reasonable. Highly recommend for lots of vegetarian options, but also great for non-veg eaters. A real gem in the heart of Old town Faro.

We don’t normally eat other than the local fare of the country we are in, but we were attracted to this cheerful restaurant. Service was polite, if not particularly knowledgeable . All around us had their meals served first, which, after 30 minutes , we were a bit concerned about? However, when it came it was super! Naan bread was obviously straight from the oven, red hot and crisp on the outside, soft, sweet and succulent on the inside. My grilled meats were tender and full of flavour served with a hot spicy sauce. My husband had the Goa special with Coconut rice. Flavour balance superb. Topped off with Alhoo Gobi as a side dish. Portions just right for us, but if you have a big appetite you may require a starter?

I was with my friend and looking for i dian food we have been at namastey. We order chicken Malai kebab. Butter chicken lamb vindaloo and chicken bhuna with garlic naan it was really testy flawed full and fresh the Malai kebab awesome. Service also great five star. I think if you going namastey no need to asked for menu waiter can explain you everything about Indian food just need to tell them what you like. Highly recommend

Not worth the hype. Staff all kept staring at me and made me uncomfortable. Pressured into ordering poppadoms which came with flavourless mango chutney and the currys tasted of nothing but spice, all flavour no heat. This was massively annoying after requesting one of our currys be served mild. On top of this the toilets had no locks on the doors and no toilet paper at all. Highlight of the evening was ordering a garlic and cheese naan only for it to be served with dairylea style cheese spread inside and no real cheese!!

We came to Portugal for my birthday. We spent the last night at this amazing Indian restaurant. Being from london where you can get authentic Indian food, this is the best Indian food we have ever had. The butter chicken is unbelievable, you will not be disappointed. The food was flavourful and not overly spicy like some Indian places. The staff as so funny, polite and helpful. The whole experience was unforgettable. I can’t recommend this place enough!! We order 11 items and it only cost €75. This place is very affordable.

Was good just not amazing. Samosas are very good, just like I remember when I lived in Birmingham, nice and authentic. Main chicken curries we ordered were a little too similar in taste for me. Karabi and Jalfreze should taste much more different than they should. I do worry that the chef smokes though as both dishes were far too salty. Overall though it was tasty, and staff were friendly, decent value too. Why did they only get 4 stars and not 5 if we enjoyed it overall ? For me the over salty food, the similar tastes between curries and one surprising little thing.... While removing our starter plates the waiter asked us to keep our cutlery for the main course. I can honestly say in 30 years I've NEVER been asked to do that. We had to just place them on the table surface. That just shouldn't happen. A weird one.

I don't have a single bad thing to say about this place. The food was amazing. My fiancee says it is the best butter chicken she has ever had, and she has had a lot of butter chicken. Our waiter was full of smiles and jokes to lift the mood of the entire restaurant even higher.

Very tasty meal and great service. Make reservations before you go. We went on Sunday night and it was full by 7pm. Food was not spicy so if you like it spicy make sure to let them know.

We visited here for the first time this evening and what a find ! First of all, the service was exceptional and we were offered truly wonderful recommendations which proved to be very enjoyable. As this was our wedding anniversary we hoped for a pleasant time, we certainly enjoyed our visit and cannot recommend here highly enough. For an excellent meal, great service and true value for money, this restaurant delivers all you can ask for. Many thanks for an excellent visit.

Great Indian food. Staff were friendly, food beautifully presented, some different flavours from the UK restaurants which made a nice change. The starters tasted great, the mains was excellent. The naan bread made with fenugreek was very light and delicious. Drinks were also reasonably priced as well.
