About Namaste Village

Dear diners, a deposit in advance is required for groups over 8, and for bookings over 20, please contact the restaurant directly.

Namaste Village (and its twin Namaste Indian) stands out from the crowd as a specialist Indian restaurant. Not only does their Queen’s Road kitchen turn out specific regional delicacies – Punjabi, South Indian, Gujarati, and dishes typical of Bombay – the food is also fully vegetarian, with the vast majority of the dishes also being suitable for those following a gluten-free or vegan diet. Namaste Village also has a nose for the street food trend, offering irresistible food items like samosa chaat, pani puri, and pav bhaji. This top Lakenham player hosted Norwich’s first Indian Street Food Festival, attracting South Asian food fans and the adventurous to their gorgeous restaurant (a repurposed heritage dancehall with a mezzanine gallery running around the dining room) in droves. Even for casual dining, reservations are recommended.

Went to celebrate an occasion and we were very happy with the whole experience, very welcoming staff, great ambiance and food was delicious. The owner spent some time with us and told us about the origins and values of the restaurant. We will certainly come back.
