Eating Out: Namaste Indian Nepali Restaurant

The Montpelier street corner which once housed Rivendell, a second-hand book store (mentioned here), is now home to Namaste Indian Nepali Restaurant.  The cheerfully, naturally lit space initially feels more like a diner but the Himalayan travel posters and the Indian pop music videos on the flat-screen tell a different story.  We ordered keema samosa, chicken tikka masala, mango goat curry and nan - all to share.

Overall, the food was nice.  We definitely could have been more daring with the heat.  We ordered the chicken medium and the goat mild - probably could have comfortably gone one level up for each.  I would have preferred less salt in the nan and fewer bones in the goat but otherwise, the meal was satisfactory.

Our waiter was friendly and attentive, perhaps even a bit maternal, checking in to see how much of each dish we'd finished.  We'll definitely be back.
