We were in Calgary to visit my Daughter and her boyfriend. Always make time to eat at Namskar. They have the best Indian food, price and service in Calgary. Perfect size portions and a great atmosphere make it a very enjoyable evening. Make this a must eat place when in Calgary!

I don't have much experience with Indian Food, but a vendor took me for lunch here and I was pleasantly surprised. The staff is pleasant and will answer questions about the cuisine, for newbies like myself they recommend the lunch buffet. Staple like butter chicken, naan bread and tandoori chicken are hot and fresh but also beef and goat curries,... More

I've been here a few times (with friends and then with out-of-town guests), and both times were superb! The staff is welcoming, the atmosphere is pleasant, and the food is excellent. The food was delicious and perfectly spiced. Although I haven't been overly-impressed with the Indian food options in Calgary in the past, I'm very happy to have found Namskar.... More

The food was okay, but the service could be better, would visit again only if in the area, not that it would be the first choice

Really enjoyed the food. The service was excellent. Superb atmosphere. Amongst the dishes we ordered, the goat curry was the best. I would easily rate this as amongst the best East Indian restaurants in Calgary, perhaps a little pricey though.

East Indian food is delicious but pricey to order by the dish. The best way to get around the $70 bill for all your favorites is to drop by Namskar for their lunch buffet. Don't be put off by the $16.95 price because you get great value for your money. There's 10 hot dishes and rice and naan bread. The... More

Another wonderful dinner at the Namskar. Pappadons to start with vegetable pakoras - there are 7 as an appetizer dish and the vegetable pakoras are tasty and hit the spot. They have many excellent main courses - all tasty for the palette - butter chicken for the timid souls (or tandori chicken), a variety of curries in mild, medium or... More

Was passing through 16 Ave and visited this restaurant for Lunch buffet. Once entered the restaurant i waited for 5 - 10 minutes as there was no waitress or staff to attend the guest or have them seated. I dint like their Tandoori chicken or dal and the butter chicken was average and too sweet. An average Indian restaurant

My husband and I went here on a Sunday night at the recommendation of our hotel. The place is set up very nicely inside and we very much enjoyed the atmosphere. The service was good. The best part was the food! My husband had goat vindaloo and I had a spinach dish with potatoes. We had a cake ball in... More

We have eaten at Namskar's buffet many times over a couple of decades and have always enjoyed the food. But today the food was very poor and definitely not worth the $16+/per/person charge for a midweek lunch buffet. The variety of dishes has been significantly reduced, the meat choices only consisting of beef curry and tandoori chicken or butter chicken.... More
