The food is very good, if not pricey. The service is always bad from the owners. They’d fawn over the foreign clientele and those of lighter hues. Today, I was asked to join friends who were having lunch there. I thought I could have a...More

Namaskar is a must. Situated in Hatfield Pretoria, do not judge this restaurant by location! The owner is friendly, the staff are amazing, the wine list is good and the food is flawless. Try any curry, or the tandoori lamb. You will not be disappointed....More

We were passing by Pretoria in our way back from the Kruger National Park. We made a stop here to have a break and were positively surprised about the excellent food that we were able to taste.

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.

Authentic, great tandoori and vegetarian dishes. Great indian "breads". Nice and pleasant owners. A little it on the expensive side but because of the quality of the food still value for money.

Living reasonably close by my family frequents this establishment a lot. If you like Indian cuisine this is the place to be. From the most simple "Home Style Curry" to Bunha Gosht, Okra and much more. Even my sometime vegetarian wife is always delighted with...More
