Square Meal Review of Namaasté Kitchen ?

Grilling is the name of the game here and all the fiery action is on show as chefs skilfully handle the tandoor, sigri and tawa before your eyes. But that’s not to say this is a rough-and-ready sort of place, not a bit of it. Namaasté Kitchen has creamy leather banquettes, designer light fittings, and even a couple of chef’s tables – in other words, it’s a pin-sharp modern Indian restaurant. The menu reaches well beyond the curry-house favourites, with chukandari venison cooked in the tandoor (flavoured with beetroot and fennel), followed by Goan sea bass served with dhokla, or a Dorset crab vindaloo. Spicing is well judged throughout and everything looks rather splendid on the plate. To finish, mango brûlée is a contemporary fusion that wins the day. The wine list has a decent global spread, including options under £20.

    edge and spoon :: Naamaste Kitchen

    June in Camden. Not quite April in Paris, but it’ll do. Satisfaction hasn’t been found in any of my visits to Indian restaurants recently: Dishoom was bland and Trishna overrated. Famous sub-continental hospitality has been non existent, and I’ve been having nightmares about Saag Aloo ever since. Namaaste Kitchen, a lazy stroll from Camden Town tube, is the second restaurant from ex-Chutney Mary chef Sabir Karim. It’s something of a hidden gem in blogging circles, despite Fay Maschler and Matthew Norman’s definite praise. Aside from tourist traps and greasy spoons, I suppose Camden is something of a foodie Bermuda...

  1. As the vegetarian and healthy food reviewer for Food I Fancy I went to Namaaste Kitchen, a contemporary Indian restaurant in Camden to find out what it has to offer vegetarians who prefer fresh and healthy food.

    Generally Indian cuisine is a good choice for vegetarians with a variety of aromatic flavours and spices to choose from. It also tends to be fresh and healthy, although I’ve yet to walk out of an Indian restaurant having eaten a sensible amount! Although Namaaste Kitchen specialises in the lighter dishes from across the subcontinent, their dishes are surprisingly rich and filling...

    Cooksister :: Namaaste Kitchen review

    What I really yearn for is an Indian restaurant that offers something a little different rather than the same dozen familiar dishes over and over again ad nauseam.

    Enter Namaaste Kitchen, brainchild of chef-patron Sabbir Karim, the only award-winning chef I have ever heard of who also works as a purser on British Airways flights!

    Having previously worked at Red Fort and Chutney Mary, Chef Sabbir opened his first restaurant, Salaam Namaaste, in Bloomsbury in 2005. Karim’s fresh approach to Indian cooking led to the restaurant being described as a “journey into a world where the tired clichés of...

  1. Namaaste Kitchen has been on our radar for some time, voted Fay Maschler’s Critics Choice in ES Magazine, chef patron Sabbir Karim was the winner of the Best Chef of the Year 2012. Not forgetting Time Out who gave it a 4/5, the Telegraph seem to love it too. What could go wrong?...

    The Hedonist :: Review-Namaaste Kitchen

    Parkway is the main food hub in Camden. It is a pulsating thoroughfare full of restaurants, pubs and clubs.. Namaaste Kitchen sits about half-way down and the interior is an oasis of calm in brown and white after the hurly-burly of the street.

    The Celeriac :: Namaasté Kitchen, Camden

    Camden isn’t much of a foodie paradise. I can only assume that those who reside there don’t actually eat, they’re all too busy dying their hair ironic shades of neon and clumping about in ten stone shoes to notice the calls of hunger. I guess they starve, in the end. A sad tale. If they do take time out from their frighteningly-cool lives to have a bite to eat though the Camden folk go to Naamaste, because it’s the only decent eating establishment in the area. And because cool people like Indian cuisine...
