I called my friend whether she want anything for dinner on the way back home after my dinner at The Grumpy Cyclist as there is a Chinese, Thai and Indian restaurant located nearby and she said "She is fine with anything" .I was attracted by the beautiful aroma of this particular restaurant. Any guess? It is Namaste Indian Restaurant, located next to The Grumpy Cyclist. They serve both North Indian and South Indian foods. After going through the menu, I ordered Vegetable Briyani and the staff told me the waiting time will be 15-20 minutes. While we were waiting patiently, the aroma from the food was too hard to resist so we ordered 1 additional Thosai for us to take away. The foods are good therefore we drop by the next day for dinner. For dinner, we ordered Egg Briyani, White Rice, Chicken Varuval and Mum's Fish Curry (This Post is a combination of my dine-in and take away)
Complimentary Papadum was freshly prepared after they have taken your order. It was fresh and crunchy and it takes some time to be served.
Mint Chutney was watery and it does not have good minty taste.
Egg Briyani was delicious. It was served with 2 Hard boiled egg hidden underneath the rice. Yummy!!
Mum's Fish curry was a delightful dish. The curry was slight spicy with the use of curry powder and spices. Fresh slice of Tenggiri Fish cooked with ladies finger and brinjal. My boyfriend loved it.
Chicken Varuval was okay. Sadly it was not up to my expectations as it does not have the best kick of black pepper and spice flavour. I guess its maybe because of the Bell pepper they use to prepare the dish instead of dried chilies.
Vegetable Briyani was so flavourful with spices. The portion was very big and it can be shared by 2 people. Vegetable Briyani @ RM 10.90
Thosai even tasted delicious. It was served with coconut and mint chutney. If I am not mistaken the coconut chutney was freshly prepared once we place the order.
Thosai @ RM 2.90
It was a good dinner with my sister and boyfriend. Nice foods except Chicken Varuval and Mint Chutney that need some improvements. The foods are reasonably priced but be ready to wait for 30 minutes to get your foods during non-peak times while peak time, 45 minutes – 1 hour. This is because the foods are freshly prepared once order is placed to ensure the foods are served piping hot and fresh.
