Our family ate here after a long day touring Barcelona. We were looking for some authentic Indian food and were not disappointed. Got some delicious paneer, chana masala and daal makhani, with hot butter naan and basmati rice. Yum!
The owner was very gracious and we learned the cook has been there over 25 years. We really enjoyed our dinner and will go back there again.

Everyone who visits Barcelona should do them self a favor and visit Namaste. The food is amazing, especially their pakora. Their butter chicken is so tasteful, and to my surprise is the mango chicken one of the best Indian sauces I've had. The staff is so friendly and we were recommended a beer. A light beer. "Number one beer in Indian" as he said. Very light and very good to drink with your food. Namaste gets 5stars from us.

I highly recommend this restaurant if you fancy good Indian food plus a great service. The owner was very friendly and we followed his recommendations. He knows very well how far he can go with the spicy ingredients depending on the customer. For some of us it was the first time eating Indian food but certainly it won't be the last. Don't miss it.

I've been to this restaurant many times when I lived in Barcelona. Now that I live abroad after 3 years, I decided to come back and see if something changed. I found that the Chicken Tikka was a bit more oily and less tasty than last time. However, the Peshwari naan is still very good.
