....no, not kidding. If you are of a certain age and remember what Holiday Inns were like in the late 70s, you will recognize this. Big open area, lotsa tables, worn out chairs, a place where the disco stage used to be, etc etc. Now, not so bad Indian food, but make sure you keep after them, as there can... More

The buffet was limited, but the food on offer was very good. The nan was brought fresh to our table, the samosas were fine, the spices in all of the dishes were perfect, and the chai tea very nice. Room for improvement: biryani was limited, and the meat dishes were all chicken (no lamb). Atmosphere was limited: no music or... More

This meal was a buffet. We found food we liked. I do believe that people from India or people who are into Indian food would have loved it dearly. The freshly made Naan bread was over-the-top delicious! The room was spotlessly clean and had mainly tables with some booths. This restaurant is in the Days Inn motel.

Strange to find an Indian buffet restaurant in a Days Inn, but I was pleasantly surprised! The food is good and the service is great. Will go back next time I stay at the Days Inn!

To sum it up quickly, I won't be going back. I hope the owner is aware that its important to welcome customers. Some walk in and haven't eaten there so dont know if should seat themselves or wait. Hospitality is a BIG reason ppl return, I feel. It seems theres only two workers atmost.. I dont know maybe they dont... More

I found this restaurant after craving for some Indian food yesterday evening. I used TripAdvisor's iPhone app and Namaste India was the closest Indian restaurant in relation to where I was at presently. So, along with my better half who is a "closet Indian", we found the place located in a small shopping plaza with the help of my iPhone's... More

Food was excellent; service was slow (as is usual in Indian restaurants). Servings were more than adequate, again as usual. I would return again if in the area.

My wife and I have been eating here for many years now. We almost always go for the lunch buffet and have eaten here at least 25-30 times now. The menu items change every time we're here so sometimes we like it better than others and range from really thrilled by the food to feeling it's ok but are never... More

Description
I thought the food was good so I'm sorry to give it one star BUT.....seeing a roach scamper from under my napkin and across the table trumps everything. Yes, there I was sitting at my table, getting ready to pay the bill. When I picked up my napkin from the table to be sure I hadn't left anything a ROACH came running out. I quickly called to the waiter but suddenly he couldn't understand English - even though he understood all my questions about the food and was able to take my order just fine.

Stay away from this place.
