The meal begins with a simple greeting, namaste , and is quickly followed by a plate of pappadam and chutney, vivid green like fresh-cut grass. Things continue to impress from there. Virtually unheard of in Burque, Namaste’s Nepalese dishes—like succulent chicken momos —throw noodles and dumplings into the Indian repertoire. By highlighting this region that blurs the line between India and the rest of Asia, and doing it with impeccable service, Namaste quietly sets itself apart as a worthwhile reason to drive to Rio Rancho. Don’t miss the masala tea—a Darjeeling brewed with cardamom, cloves, cinnamon sticks and milk. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

  • Best Indian in New Mexico? Probably so....  [ Thu Feb 3 2011 4:51 PM ]

    As we walked in, we were welcomed with a warm greeting, Namaste, a sweet smile by the friendly staff, and heavenly aromas wafting from the kitchen. Namaste means "I bow and respect to the divine spirit within you," used in India and Nepal to greet each other. The term has many meanings -- my favorite is, "I honor the Spirit in you which is also in me."

    Namaste Cuisine of India and Nepal was started August 2008. It is the first Indian and Nepalese restaurant in the Duke City area. The room is quite lovely, the staff quite friendly, and the service is exemplary. But this is true of many Indian restaurants here. What sets Namaste apart from the pack is the food, and that's why we go there.

    Aah, the food! The spicing is delicate and the sauces are complex -- *never* over-the-top shouting at you, "I'm Indian, therefore cayenne-hot." The balance is so close to being perfect that you can taste everything -- amazing in this Enchanted Land of Chile.

    The menu is not so huge as to be overwhelming. But you will surely find your favorites here. Chicken, lamb or goat, seafood, biryanis, vegetables, and much more. Tandoori, korma, vindaloo, tikka masala, and more.

    On our last visit, visiting sister had the Seekh Kabob (ground lamb, spiced, and cooked in the tandoori), which she declared first-rate. Jane had Saag Paneer (spinach and paneer cheese in a gentle creamy sauce), which we all declared among the very best we ever had. I ordered off-menu (as I often do) and asked them to prepare Fish Korma for me. White fish cubes prepared in a complex, cashew-laden white sauce. Simply perfect. [About a month after I had this dish, it appeared on an updated menu.] The basmati rice with peas was fine. The Nan was beautifully done.

    This quickly became one of our favorite restaurants. It's just up the hill from where we live. Perfect Friday night place for us. You, too, maybe.
