Namaskar translates into “I bow to you” and is a common Indian greeting. No matter the age, race or what you’re wearing, the staff at Namaskar greet everyone in the same manner: with a smile, a bow and hands clasped together. This is just an example of the true Indian spirit that diners can expect when making use of today’s Groupon: Pay R46 for any R95 chicken dish.
The food at Namaskar is all prepared onsite, meaning that distinctive Indian flavours can be found in everything from the bread to the cheese and even the pickles. From the moment diners walk in, their nostrils and taste buds can expect a sensory exploration as they move through the flavours coming from the traditional Tandoori oven.
India is renowned for its colourful cuisine and traditions, traits that can be seen and heard in everything from the accents to the décor in Namaskar. Short of providing every diner with a sari and bindi, the staff at Namaskar go out of their way to make diners feel as though they are in a village in Goa where vibrant spirit is a way of life and happiness flows freely.
A single mouthful of delectable flavours such as tikka masala, Bombay style gravies and Handi spices will have you speaking with an Indian accent and wobbling your head from side to side before you walk out the door.
Spicy fact: A recent study found that one Indian person will eat two tonnes of rice a year. This amount could fit inside the diamond of a baseball pitch. Baseball was also India’s national sport until the popularity of cricket rose around the world. This is why Indian cricketers bowl so well.
