Really great Indian food. Garlicky cauliflower was out of this world. Lunch combo vegetarian plate provided several delicious samplers.

I come here at least once a week and am surprised I haven’t already written this. This restaurant is one of my favorites in town. The chef is always on the line and takes pride in his work. Not only is the presentation always beautiful, but the flavors are outstanding. Obviously someone who is passionate about their craft puts this menu together. I am so happy we get to have a gem like this right in the middle of Evans. More...

This food is sooooo good! The owner is super friendly and has a passion for the food they offer. The chef is outstanding, we did not want to stop eating but we had to because we were so full from eating everything. This would be an awesome place for lunch or a hip spot to take a date. Great food and great interior decorating as well. Attached a picture of the food below but I forgot to take a picture before we ate because it smelled so good and we wanted to dive in. Highly recommend :) More...

We have been dying to try this place after seeing social media hype and reading other reviews.  I will admit the inside was a little more casual than I was expecting, but still clean and bright. We ordered the Murg Makkai Soup (thick corn and chicken soup), burrata butter chicken, and Goan street vindaloo with lamb, and garlic naan.The soup seemed to be somewhat of a misnomer. It was not thick at all; actually, it was quite thin. While it had the color of corn, there were no corn kernels to be found. The flavor was good, but overall was just very different that what we were expecting based on the description.The burrata butter chicken was delicious and a very decent portion. I often find myself wanting more meat at Indian restaurants when I order curry, but this place gave plenty of meat in their curry dishes. The Goan street vindaloo with lamb was different than I was expecting. The sauce was a very deep red/brown and almost a barbecue sauce taste, but had a nice spice level.The couple we went with had the tikka chicken, samosa chaat, cheese kulcha and shish kabob. They seemed to enjoy their food as well. However, we all agreed while the food was very good we weren't sure it's necessarily better than the other Indian options in town. More...

One of the best places I have eaten at in Augusta. It's a small restaurant where you order at the counter and they bring you your food. They served some alcohol here. We ordered Garlicky chicken, mushroom and truffle oil kulchas, vindaloo chicken in a cone and butter chicken (Don't judge the quantity). Needless to say it was a lot of food. Everything here was incredible and probably will be a regular destination. More...

I was being lazy but finally I had to write them a five star review. After moving from a city where Indian food meant curry only, visiting Namaste was a wonderful surprise. Im a huge fan of South Indian dosa and idli and was their masala dosa made to perfection. Oh and that delicious sambar. I weeped with happiness. Bhelpuri and Samosa chat reminded of my college days back home. I'm making every excuse to visit them now. More...

The food here is very tasty but kinda pricey, I have dined at the restaurant about 5 times now and it has consistently remained about the same. The only noticeable difference I have found is the taste of the chicken is a little different not sure why , I noticed this on my fourth visit  . Hopefully it will remain a good place to eat most things that start out well here in Augusta  go down hill after about 6 months so let's keep our fingers crossed this restaurant doesn't turn out that way.

Seriously great food!  The butter chicken, garlic naan, samosas and chick pea dish with the samosas are extremely tasty and beautiful. The chicken in a cone is edible art. More...

Last saturday we went to Namaste for dinner and it was a great experience. The staff was friendly and food and was brought to us in 15-20 minutes- buratta butter chicken,chicken in cone , beef ularthiyathu (fry) and paneer kulcha (bread). The quality of every dish was excellent and very tasty. My personal favorite was kulcha- was really soft and flavorful. Menu is unique so definitely will be going back to try more Namaste specials :) More...

This was my first time and it was a take out order. Absolutely DELICIOUS. I ordered garlicky cauliflower, Bombay Bhel Puri, Garlic Naan, and butter chicken. I do not have a single complaint. Everything is super flavorful, with all the delicious spices you'd expect. The Bombay Bhel Puri is fresh, herbal, and perfectly seasoned. The butter chicken is a warm, savory, and creamy comfort dish, and the garlicky cauliflower is a burst of flavor I suggest you not pass up. All of this along with the pillowy garlic naan is a meal made in heaven. Go. NOW. More...

The Thali was very good, the tikka chicken was dry. Presentation of food was excellent. Lassi was tasty and right amount of sugar. It was a small place with counter service. The service was a little slow. We would come back. More...

Awesome Indian food with great tasting vegan options. This place was a breath of fresh air being that there isn’t many vegan options in Augusta. The food was fresh and cooked to order. I’ll definitely be back. More...

Ordered delivery since we just moved and were busy unpacking. The kids butter chicken meal was perfect size and flavor for all 3 of my kids. They loved the bread that went with and the mango lasse was awesome. I got the adult butter chicken and it was yummy, the vindaloo was a little more sour than I like but not inedible, just not my preference. Naan is good, but quite thin... not the pillows of soft dough I am used to, but they are still tasty. Will definitely be trying this place again. More...

Butter chicken was great! The service was slow but worth the wait. Garlic Naan/Mango Lassi are solid choices. A little pricey but you get a lot!

Our Family ate here last night. The atmosphere is very cosmopolitan. It, definitely, has international vibes. The smell, sound and decor takes you on a cultural ride. The menu is amazing with all sorts of twists and turns. The food is hot, fresh and delicious. The portions are very generous. We had to ask for a take out box. Treat yourself to some Naan bread. We ordered both garlic and regular. It was piping hot, soft, flavorful and delicious! The Customer Service is the best in town. They are friendly and professional. Top your visit off with a Mango Tasi! You’ll be happy that you did! I, highly, recommend this place and will return. More...

I ordered the butter chicken and the lamb shish kabob and both were outstanding. The food here is fresh, delicious, and done quickly. I especially loved their long grain rice, which had subtle floral flavors to it, and their garlic naan. This will be in our favorite restaurant rotation for awhile. More...

We're not from the area so me and my fiancé have been trying different places to eat every day and this is the best tasting food we've had in the area so far. A little pricey but entirely worth it, we won't go anywhere else for takeout unless they're closed More...

Check your order.   I came in for a to go order and asked for one of the drinks while sitting and waiting but didn't get it until the to go order was ready around 30 mins later.  I had to ask about the mango lassi after they handed me my order and did a quick check when I got in the car and saw I didn't have rice. I went back in and they were nice about getting me rice quickly.  Unfortunately I drove 25 mins home only to realize they had not given me butter chicken but paneer.  I called to let them know and they asked if we wanted to bring it back and get the correct item but honestly I didn't want to spend another hour dealing with it. The food.  Overall the food was great.  Not spicy like I expect from Taj so now I know to order it with spice.  If you like spice make sure to ask. But overall the flavors were very good. I will probably try them again but a little disappointed in the first experience More...

I have been thinking about this place since I first tried it (12 days ago) and was hoping I could convince my husband to come with me. I made the mistake of ordering chicken tikka instead of chicken tikka masala but the chicken was done well, just wouldn't order it again because it's not what I usually like. My husband got the butter chicken and I ended up stealing several bites from his and it was fantastic and full of flavor. The garlic naan was near perfect. I'm not sure why but their menu and the way it's organized is a tad confusing to me. It doesn't seem to be organized all that well and makes things harder to find than I would like. Either way, bad menu or not, the food is delicious and I hope to keep coming back and trying new things off the menu! More...

I have been wanting to try this place since it opened and got the opportunity to try it today with a friend. I'm hoping they work some kinks out with the ordering system but they are relatively new so won't hold that against them. I got the chicken vindaloo ($14 which I thought was a bit steep for lunch prices but they don't seem to change from lunch to dinner) and they asked on a scale from 1-10 how hot I wanted it and since I love all things spicy but am also terrified to not enjoy it, I went with a 6. It was the perfect amount of spice and think I could go 7 or 8 next time. Full of flavor, good size dishes, the bowls they were served in were beautiful. My friend really liked her chicken tikka masala. We had naan on the side and that was fantastic. I also tried a mango lassi for the first time and really loved it and am not even a huge fan of mango. Can see this being a really nice treat on a hot day. I also got the mushroom & truffle oil stuffed naan to bring home for my husband and unfortunately didn't love that but will be trying another one the next time I'm in. I can't wait to try more on the menu! More...

I ordered about $200 worth of take out from Namaste yesterday evening for a work dinner we were hosting at our home. I was so impressed. I have never seen take out that has beautiful presentation. Not only was the food beautiful but it was delicious and portions were incredibly generous. The Namaste staff helped me with my numerous bags and loaded my car too. We ordered the samosas, kale pakoras, garlicky cauliflower, paneer tikka masala and butter chicken. Every single item was a hit with our non-Indian guests and Indian guests alike. So glad that this gem of a restaurant is here now serving a gap and can handle large orders too! Well done, looking forward to returning again for dine-in and for future take out orders too. More...

This was a pleasant surprise. The place is easy to find and in the Publix shopping center. I walked in and went to the counter, the girl there seemed very confused and unorganized and really didn't provide good customer service. Didn't catch her name though. So I can't give them 5 stars.I ordered the sriracha mayo chicken cone (chicken in a waffle cone), the cheese naan, and the namaste tea. I paid just under $16. This food is one of the best Indian food places I've had in an exceptionally long time, beautiful presentation, amazing flavor. The chai tea is real, not powdered. I was happy and surprised. The sriracha chicken cone was packed with flavor. It left me wanting more for sure. The cheese naan was perfect. I love the orchid garnish. I will definitely be back! More...

It is a nice place to get Indian food. A group of friends fathered to celebrate 2 birthdays there. We ordered some appetizers and tea. They were very accommodating to our cake from outside. The owner came specially to meet us and made sure we were being looked after. Very nice place. I just wish they would greet diners with Namaste! More...

The burrata butter chicken combined with the mushroom and truffle oil kulchas is to die for!! My boyfriend and I have gone here once a week since they've been open. He's more adventurous with trying other food but this is definitely one of my go to meals when I am craving Indian food. The people inside are so nice and even brought out water for our puppy when we ate outside. More...

Finally, Augusta has another option when it comes to Indian food. This place is fantastic. It's essentially Indian fast food. Has all the traditional favorites and and several American/Indian fusion options. I ordered chicken vindeloo and it was delicious. Perfect spice level. Also got a fried chicken cone as an appetizer. Delicious!!!  Kids ordered dosa which was as good as we've ever had and bhel pori which was also excellent. Employees were extremely nice.  Only negative is that the menu is limited when you order in person.  If you order online, it's extensive.  I love asking questions about stuff and you can't do that online. But overall, I was very satisfied.  Rest assured I'll be back to this place many times. More...

It's always nice when a new, not chain, place opens up in Augusta. Obviously as a newer restaurant there are some kinks that need to be worked out like some issues with the menu screen and some confusion about where food was supposed to go, but I think those issues are minor and will be fixed. Something that didnt have a problem was the food. It was awesome. Me and my father both got the Thali special, and both loved it. As people that were raised with food with strong indian influences, it brought us right back to our childhood, and with street food, i think thats exactly what its supposed to do. And they did it well. My meal had a great balance of flavors and different things to try. It felt like no conpromise indian comfort food, and that's exactly what I want when I eat food from a different culture than mine. I will definitely be returning.As for service, it was great. Everybody in the building was happy to help and tell us about some items on the menu, which is a nice change from miserable people in miserable places. You can tell they care about the food and satisfying the customer. Twice they came out out and ensured they food was good, you could see that it  was really important to them. Everybody should go here, especially if you're feeling more adventurous. More...

It's just recently opened up. The butter chicken was not spicy (which I like). I thought it was a little on the pricier side, but you get a good portion size. It is enough for a hungry person to finish and be satisfied but also enough to share between two people who aren't too too hungry. I don't think it's fancy Indian but definitely Indian street food.

Our daughter wanted to try Namaste for her birth week lunch. I've never had Indian food before so I had a lot of questions. I am gluten free so I had to ask the associates which items were safe for me to eat. They were unsure so they pulled whom I  assume was the owner over and she was able to help me choose gluten friendly options. She was very friendly and patient with my questions. . She suggested the butter chicken. It was amazing. It comes with rice and was fresh and flavorful. Beautiful dish. Very large portion (loving leftovers). My husband got the coconut chicken. The sauce was very good. The chicken was "OK". I feel like there are too many entrees that come without a side of rice - for the price, rice should probably be included. I believe the restaurant just opened so they are still working on their flow. My daughter and I got our dishes several minutes before my husband received his which was disappointing, but the staff was very considerate and apologized. I feel like they will get their timing down. We will eat here again. It was a fresh and nice change from the usual choices in augusta. More...

I cannot believe how amazing this place is!! Not only is it easily the best Indian food in Augusta (so long Taj!) but it is the best Indian food I've had anywhere, including lots of major cities. And probably the best meal overall I've ever eaten in Augusta. I was not expecting that from an order-at-the-counter establishment. The dishes were so full of flavor and beautifully garnished. The naan has the chewy center you love and expect from naan but these wonderful crispy edges you can't get without a tandoori oven. The garlic naan in particular was incredible. I've never had it so well made. Lots of fresh chopped garlic that gets nice a crispy on the surface. We've tried several dishes and they've all been A+, but the lamb biryani in particular is just plain amazing. It lacked the gaminess you often get with lamb and was so tender and flavorful. And the rice it came with was full of bright herbs and seasonings. I wish I'd taken a picture!Try the burrata butter chicken too. Yum! But really my guess is there isn't a bad dish on the menu. This place is a true gem. I so hope it gets the local support it deserves. More...

Just had a yummy dinner of butter chicken, garlic naan, kale fritters and coconut fried chicken.  This is real Indian food with all the flavor you expect.  The dining experience is fast casual, you order at the counter and the food is brought to your table.  They did a great job with the branding and design - clean, simple and modern.  Our only complaint was that the coconut chicken entree didn't come with any sides.  I would suggest changing the menu so that all protein entrees are served with either naan or rice.  We'll be back!

The portions and prices are really great and I was shocked by how beautiful and delicious the kids butter chicken was. The staff was professional and very attentive. I had the butter chicken and it was absolutely phenomenal. It was more complex than other butter chicken I've had and the chicken seemed to be tandoori or at least have it's own dedicated spices as well. You need to try the vegetable samosas because the sauces they provide you to dip with are out of this world,The rice pudding was very interesting and good. It wasn't like Mexican or other Indian rice pudding I've had before. It was heavily flavored with saffron and reminded me of Persian food. More...
