Nice atmosphere and pleasant dining room, great food, seriously overpriced alcohol - be warned! Politely queried with manager whose response was just to walk away with a sour look on his face. Obviously used to ripping people off for the drinks without any complaints.

Been coming here for a few good yrs now and have to say it gets better each year. It's a 10/10 on all counts. Fine dining at its best. Highly recommend it to all. Our family favourite. Ben and Family Mission Botswana

Namaskar is tucked away in a shopping centre that's a bit off the beaten track, but it's well worth making the effort to find it. Walk through the doors, and you're transported into an elegant, upmarket restaurant, where you can relax and enjoy the cuisine....More
