Can one make an ordinary steam cooked idly into a crispy and crunchy and at the same time very palatable dish for your dinner? Yes, the gentleman Mr. Gopi, the restaurant owner, can make this wonder in the restaurant called "Namaste Hanoi", located in the...heart of the beautiful Hanoi city. After going through the sea food and other multi cuisine (except for Indian spicy food) for a month, and also tasted a few Indian restaurants that were not up to the mark, we almost lost our hope of finding an excellent Indian culinary until we landed in Namaste Hanoi. We had visited this restaurant thrice and all the dishes we tasted were amazing. We felt like we found an Oasis in the middle of desert. While the taste is extraordinary, Mr. Gopi's hospitality is exemplary. The restaurant is being run by him for the past 24 years. While he is interacting with the customers at the table, he always keep an eye at the entrance of the restaurant in the downstairs and rushing to the entering customers to greet them. During all our visits I observed that he almost greeted everyone who entered the restaurant. While the food is tasty and also being served in a calm and quite pleasing ambience, what more one can expect? All I can say is that It's worth trying, folks.More

We were staying at Somerset Grand and the best part of its location was that it was 10 steps away from the best Indian restaurant in the whole of Vietnam. The menu is exhaustive and even catered to a gluten intolerant person like me. The...staff is super polite and the service is quick. Quality of food - great - which is why we chose to come back here. Packed some Idlis for the flight too :)More

Worst food I ever had,the palak paneer tasted like Henna, the Naan was just dry and the service horrible. They had 2 waitresses for a restaurant filled with charter buses for tourists. Truly a tourists trap

Just had the most amazing authentic Indian food outside India at NAMASTE Hanoi!! Service was good, food was delivered to the table in less than 10 minutes, quantity was decent, restaurant was very large & clean, and the menu was huge. All Indian chefs work...here so they know what they are doing. Was just so pleasantly surprised to eat such authentic food so far away from home. And we even had a chat with the owner Gopi who made time to visit all the tables.More
