Namaste, and welcome to the best Nepalese restaurant in Bristol. While there may be a myriad of magnificent curry houses of an Indian, Pakistani, Bangladeshi and, at a push, Sri Lanka bent to be found up and down the length of the United Kingdom, the tiny Himalayan nation of Nepal is often under-represented. When you find a Nepalese restaurant then, think on that you pay them a visit, and if that restaurant is Namaste Nepal on Frogmore Street in Bristol city centre, you’re in for a treat. They offer the classic curries and tandoori dishes that mark out cooking on the whole subcontinent, with an additional range of delicacies from their native land. Start with some momo dumplings before jumping into a chicken jhol, mildly spicy with garlic and ginger, a masu tama with lamb, fermented bamboo shoots, black eye peas and runner beans or a Nepali thali.

The food was fabulous and staff very friendly and helpful. Recommend the Thali plate. Really good location for both 02 Academy and Colton Hall. Great!
Really nice place, with really nice food. The service was excellent! I will be back for sure as I would like to try more dishes from Nepal!
Namaste restaurant is the most relaxing place in Bristol. The food is really good, the spices never hide the good taste of the meat. The chef does a great job. The owner of the restaurant is the nicest man ever. If I could i would come every week there!
We received a warm welcome, had good service and the food was great - we'll definitely be going back and would recommend Namaste to anyone seeking good Nepali food.
The food was decent enough and the staff were very polite, however, it just took aaages to get served or noticed. Our drinks took about half an hour to arrive at which point we finally ordered, we were waiting ages to get the bill and then at least 10-15 mins after that to pay! Overall, we were there for 3 hours for a starter and a main and it wasn't rammed or anything. It was a nice enough place with alright food, but I think they let themselves down by how long it took to order/get drinks.
the food was excellent as always. Unfortunately I couldn't use my Taste Card because they have stopped this and have told you apparently on several occasions. However I didn't mind paying the full prices as the food and service is really good
Food was excellent but the service was very slow. The place was not busy but it was over an hour from us walking in to getting our meal. Others seem to be taking a similar time. However, if you are not in a rush, the food was lovely.
Amazing restaurant with incredible food and service. The Nepalese beer Khukuri is worth going for alone. The food was cooked to perfection. This was our 2nd visit and it definitely won't be our last
Food was very tasty and some great nepalese option you won't find in a typical curry house. However, service was slow due to only one front of house staff member, to the point where orders were forgotten entirely. May have just been short that night or may be the norm.
Excellent food, very friendly service, lovely venue in the centre of town. Really good value for money. Nice to try the Nepalese specialities, alongside all the typical Indian favourites. Highly recommended
