Message: I am not a connoisseur, but I have been to places and have tasted variety of Indian cuisine, therefore today I would like to state here something about NAMASTAEY INDIA. Since the day I landed to Singapore, I was ushered to Namastaey India by my beloved better half, as I had expressed my intention of having a vegetarian meal for the evening. I ordered Thali, because in Kuwait I visit Udipi restaurant twice a month to have Thali.
The Thali was not the type I expected, but much better in presentation as well as the variety of dishes it contained. The quality and the quantity were just perfect and everything in it was delicious. Until then I used to think Udipi Thali is the best, but now I know that a Thali from Namastaey India is the best. I fell in love with Namastaey India, not only because of the meal, but because of the ambience, creativity, warm smiles of Rakesh, Joel and above all the smile of the owner Neetu. Rakesh is full of wisdom and smiles very easily. Joel on the other hand, is reserved, but when he smiles, it is like Mona Lisa. Neetu - I am fortunate to meet this wonderful woman. More than offering the delicacies, she offers so much of love. She is very pretty and exceptionally loving person.
I did not want my experience to end with the Thali, so I continued to visit Namastaey India every day at least for one meal. I tried Sizzler, Veg. Samosa, Maharaja Samosa, Corn Samosa, Green Peas Samosa, Potato Samosa, Paneer Samosa, Cheese Kulcha, Masala Kulcha, Harabara Kulcha, Maharaja Wada, Dhal Bati Churma, Corn Soup, Coconut Coffee, Maharaja Lassi, Mango Lassi, Green Chutney & Dhil Kush. Of course they serve all the other common Indian dishes.
I did not know that there are so many varieties of Samosas and Kulchas. Each dish had its own unique pleasant taste which soothed my palate. I have not seen the above delicacies elsewhere in other restaurants I have dinned so far.
Kudos goes to the creator of NAMASTAEY INDIA, Mr. Neelendra Jain. Proud man, and he deserves to be proud, for he has given to Singapore an outlet, which every person can afford to dine in and enjoy the numerous delicacies it offers. I am told that some of the dishes are exclusively his own fusion. The same proud man has a very soft side, which he hides, but is obvious when you ask him about his only daughter Niharika. I believe that nothing could be possible without Neetu, the inspiration of Mr. Neelendra Jain.
Wishing NAMASTAEY INDIA, success…………..and prosperity to Neetu & Neelendra.

Personally, I am a huge fan of those ‘simple dining’ Indian restaurants, which hit the sweet spot between a food court and the expensive fine dining ones in terms of both quality and bang for the buck! Namastey India is a quiet restaurant off the busy Syed Alwi road. The place is bursting with typical Indian décor, colours and light. It is quite a welcoming ambiance, one that makes you feel at home instantly. Right from the Indian flag and colourful painted wall endowing one corner, to the white wash of the rest of restaurant, the comfortable seatings, it brought out a nice neat look.
Browsing through the menu, I realized, that the all vegetarian restaurant has quite an elaborate menu. They start elaborately with soups (from tomato dhania soup to Indian-Chinese manchow soup), starters (veggie kebabs, chaats, salads and raita), to mix of Indian mains, Punjabi, gujarathi, loads of bread options to select from the normal roti’s and naan’s to specialized ones like Kurmi Naan and Rogni Naan, and finally the desserts… What intrigued us was the fact that apart from such an elaborate menu… they also have some specialized thali’s. Overall, a complete menu! Here’s what we tried…
 Bhindi Jaipuri: The Bhindi (Ladies Finger) Jaipuri was quite nice. Well seasoned batter and crispy Bhindi was a great starter.
 Dahi Poori: It was nicely balanced. The curd wasn’t too tangy or too sweet. The puri’s were crisp enough, despite being dipped in the curd. Overall a well put together dish.
 Thali: My hubby dearest was quite excited seeing the Daal Baati Churma Thali, but had to be disappointed when they informed us that it was available only on pre-order. He went instead for the Sunday Special Thali, and was quite happy with the outcome, especially considering the price. It included 5 veggies + daals, 1 dessert, 2 roti’s, rice and buttermilk. Quite filling.
 Yellow Daal tadka: The daal tadka was quite nicely cooked and blended…
 Shaahi Paneer: The Shaahi Paneer gravy was quite delicate to taste, various spices coming up well in the blend of cashews…
 Aalo Paratha: The Aalo paratha was good… not oily and the added tinge of coriander on the top gave it a nice flavour.
