There are few places in Montreal that will satisfy your cravings for wholesome Indian food, and fewer still that are competitively priced, and right in your own backyard. Namaste Montreal – a new Indian restaurant on Milton – meets all three of these requirements.
All of Namaste’s dishes are made fresh daily without preservatives, without artificial colours or flavours, and without cornstarch. Every dish is made with a healthy conscience by minimizing oils and maximizing flavour. All dishes on the restaurant’s menu is homemade, and offer satisfaction for vegetarians, carnivores, vegans, and those with a sweet tooth. Whether you’re a spice junkie, or prefer your Indian food slightly on the milder side, the conscientious staff will cater the dishes to your taste.
Namaste Montreal offers its fare at a reasonable price. A hearty portion of either Channa Masala (chickpeas cooked with onions, garlic and ginger in a tomato curry) for Dhal Makani (spicy lentils cooked in a rich creamy sauce) costs only six dollars; the non-vegetarian meals, including Butter Chicken and Lamb Curry, run for only seven or eight dollars. Or, try a Biryani—vegetables or chicken layered with basmati rice and baked to perfection.
The items on Namaste Montreal’s menu are limited but they don’t disappoint.Top off your meal with classic Indian breads like naan or roti, a healthy serving of rice, and or a serving of cooling Raita, a gently spiced yogurt dish with cucumber chunks. But make sure to save room for the grand finale! Finish your meal off with the sweet taste of traditional Rasgullas or Gulab jamun for just one dollar accompanied by a perfect cup of Masala chai. Namaste’s focus on these signature dishes ensures that you get the freshest meals, made with care.
Hungry and on the run? Try one of their amazing Samosas for only a dollar! Just don’t tell anyone in Bronfman that you’ve been straying. What’s more, you can always top off their samosa with a ladle-full of channa masala for only three dollars—the perfect snack on a busy day.
The final verdict:
Namaste Montreal opened just a few weeks ago and is ready to serve you. Let your senses be pampered with the delicate blend of Indian spices embellishing a warm and cozy atmosphere. The inviting red walls and friendly staff will make you and your friends feel right at home in this little pocket of authentic Indian culture, amidst the chill of the Montreal winter.
