Namaste creates traditional and scrumptious foods of the eastern flavors. Always courteous and food is excellent. Value for meal is good balance. I never walk away dissatisfied. I would recommend a sweater, typically I am a little cold in the restaurant. All my guests that have joined me for a meal have raved about the experience. Delightful Eastern food -... More

I visit Anchorage almost every month and this is a go to place once during my trips. I always stop to get takeout. I did the same this time as well. They are pretty prompt - food is ready for pickup in about 20 to 30 minutes. I had the biryani and curry. It also comes with a small raita.... More

We went here for lunch on a Thursday afternoon. They don't have a buffet but have a huge variety of lunch options. I had the thali meals which was more than adequate. It doesn't come with bread though. Only rice. Some of my coworkers got biryani and the portions were huge. The food was hot, fresh and very flavorful. The... More

Don't let appearances fool you. Despite being in a unappealing strip mall the atmosphere inside is pleasant and quiet. The seating area is not large but it's usually not too full. The food here is great and there are a lot of options. Smooth take-out process as well.

I was skeptical yet we had good experience with the food. We found momos in the menu.It was really worth trying and we actually got it packed for our first glacier tour. However, the waiting time was almost 45 minute coz it was jam packed. We had two meals here and it was far better in taste( it cannot be... More

According to their website, the restaurant closes at 9:30 pm. We arrived at 9:00 pm. The restaurant refused to seat us but offered to provide To-Go orders instead. The reason: Chef wants to go home early. Really? Who was back there, Gordon Ramsay? Due to desperation and dire hunger we ordered to-go boxes. I had the Chicken Biryani and was... More

We have been here twice now and this place has good food and a nice atmosphere, quiet but not too quiet. We had the Masala which was excellent but the mango chutney had gone bad. If not for the chutney I would have given them an Excellent overall rating. I would say this would be a great place for a... More

This place was very busy, could be a good thing. The staff seemed to handle it very well. We ordered to go and though it took a long time the staff was in-tune with our needs as we waited. They actually gave us a table to wait at. The food was prepared from scratch though which is unique to a... More

I ordered to go on a Wednesday evening. They seem to close early around 8:30 itself. Placing the order was easy and the food was ready when I went to pick it up. The biryani was very flavorful although quite spicy. My fault - I asked for Hot and didn't realize that I couldn't handle it :) Enjoyed the burn... More

I decided to try Namaste Shangri-La for dinner since I was in Anchorage and in the mood for some good Indian food. The place was extremely busy but they seated me right away. I placed my order and waited. Some time later, after more people kept piling in, the hostess started telling people that the kitchen was running really behind.... More
