Namskar, Calgary, Restaurant Review

Indian cuisine is something I’ve recently tried and I must say that it is absolutely delicious!  Namskar not only offers a WONDERFUL vegetarian selection but the staff and ambiance makes it a great place to enjoy.  One of the really nice things about Namskar is their menu.  Being a newbie to East Indian food, my friend and I were at a lost to what to order and what to expect.  Namskar’s menu featured pictures of some of their dishes as well as what to expect for the contents of the dishes – great for expectations of spiciness or cream- based dishes.  We ordered Mushroom Muttar – a combination of mushrooms and green peas cooked in an exotic curry sauce with fresh coriander leaves, Veggie Jalfrezi – a mixture of fresh vegetables and cottage cheese cooked with sautéed onion, mixed peppers and a touch of spiced tomato sauce, Saffron rice, Garlic Naan bread and Chai tea.  You can also request the kitchen to make your food extra spicy; I recommend this if you can handle spicy food as I found the regular dishes not spicy at all.  They were quite busy on a Saturday night with large and small parties all around.  Our food came out fairly quickly and was enough for 2 people.  From entering to leaving we were greeted with smiles – something that hasn’t happened for a long time!  Namskar on Urbanspoon

  1. Hi An! This is one of my favourite restaurants in Calgary. Besides being really good food, its consistent, which is always something to look for in a good restaurant :)
