Lets face it Indian cuisine is not cheap, and if it is good luck. Namaskar is not the most expensive but by far one of the best we have ever experienced. This was not our first visit to them and neither will it be the last. We ordered a Chicken Korma for my wife an I had the Lamb Kohlapuri.... More

The food ambiance in restaurant is excellent and food is superb! Quality and taste was amazing but very pricy. There is ample space and very tastefully decorated. Service is also good. Location of the restaurant is not apt compared to the status of the restaurant.

Definitely not a good choice if you have kids, No high chairs- when asked the guy explained they are strictly not child friendly, they explained its even printed on the menu card. My two year old was expected to sit in the chair and dine. Food is ok but definitely not worth the money, compared to my previous visits they... More

I have been at Namaskar on a number of occasions. It is a fantastic venue for a business lunch or dinner as you can ask for a separate room to sit in. This ensures privacy during your discussions. Food is fantastic. My personal favorites are the lamb tops and the prawns, but often enjoy the naan with a chicken dish.... More

A party of nine family members went to Namaskar on Tuesday evening to celebrate my sister's upcoming birthday - a meal to remember. The food was absolutely delicious and the service and personal attention we got from the owner was superb. Unfortunately I don't live in Pretoria, if we did, we would most certainly be regular visitors. Special mention must... More

We once again visited this top class Indian Restaurant where we were treated to some fantastic dishes complemented with a variety of Naan flat breads and wine. The menu is large and it is always a good idea to take advice from the owners before deciding what to have. The service as usual was friendly and prompt.

We visited Namaskar for a graduation celebration and were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food and efficient service. The curry was aromatic, plentiful and the menu is varied enough to accommodate a range of guests. A range of starters are offered - the cheese and corn fritters were a favourite. We'll definitely be back!

Decided to treat a Free State couple to quench their Indian food craving. Benn often to this restaurant. I would say sure it does not have the ambience or decor of its competitor Geet. But the cuisine makes up for the trip to Colbyn. A decent wine list. The veg mixed starter is a must even for meat lovers. I... More
