My South Asian friends raved about this place. It is located in the Bliss hotel...about a 5 minute drive from our hotel, the Voyager Beach Resort. The food was excellent. We ordered 3 starters and 4 mains for the three of us. The portions were very generous and I could have stopped at the starters. Don't over order!! Loved the butter chicken and buttered naans. The eggplant bharta curry was okay. The best dish was one made by the chef for us, but I don't remember the name. You may want to let the chef treat you with dishes rather than ordering from the menu.

My only complaint was that we were sweltering in the humid evening heat (and eating spicy food) so it was uncomfortably hot inside. Not sure if they have air conditioning?

We were taken by our family to the newish Namaskar restaurant situated in the Bliss resort , near to Nyali Centre for one of our last nights in Mombasa and initially we had high hopes when entering. Lots of money had been spent on the decor, design, water features etc but unfortunately these high hopes were not realised.

The young lady server was the best feature of the place, very pleasant, helpful and accommodating but the food did not live up to expectations. The prices of the individual dishes were very reasonable but the standard was lacking.

Seated and orders taken we had some lassi to quench our thirst. First there was no mango to make mango lassi! Then the salt lassi when it appeared had a very strange taste and had to be sent back. We settled for bottled sodas. Various chicken dishes were delivered, albeit at a very slow pace and none of them were exceptional, very average at best. The salad to accompany the meal also had a very strange off-taste, not very nice at all. ! What was wrong? How can fresh salad have such a weird taste?

Anyway, the chilli chips were edible and the chicken and fish fingers for the youngest member of our group seemed to be OK. The dessert of gulag jamun was ordinary. Dense and stodgy, lacking in syrup. Service was good and was far better than the food.

Not somewhere where I would want to return to.

In Mombasa foodies who miss Indian curries should visit Namaskar Restaurant at Bliss hotel.
Their tandoori food items are mouth watering.. food is slightly expensive but worth it. the quantity of the food serve is good for 2 to 3 persons.

What a beautiful hotel in which this little gem is housed. Everything screamed of great promise as we ushered ourselves in to be seated by the most hospitable steward.
Drinks orders were dispatched and served with speed and relish. Menus were looked at and choices made. Finger food for starters and curries naan and pilau for mains.
The house special prawns were heavenly. The shish kebabs not so great. The garlic naans were brilliant. Could have just munched on that and the prawns washed down with ice cold Tusker.
The chicken curry for our mains was a disappointment as the chicken used was obviously old as was evident from the texture and the taste. The pulao rice was too al dente for my liking.
I think they can improve on the food and then this place would be a winner. I expect all tables to be full. Just 2 on the night we were there.
