If you’ve been downtown lately, you’ve likely noticed a new restaurant that’s getting a lot of attention as 2019 comes to an end.
Namaste Kingston offers authentic Indian food with a modern twist, and recently opened at 178 Ontario Street in the city’s downtown core.
At the helm of the kitchen is Chef Kumar, who trained in the best culinary school in India and worked at the finest kitchens in the country preparing authentic Indian food.
Chef Kumar is serving the some of the best curry in the Kingston area by presenting North Indian flavours through the exciting curries on their menu. Adding modern twists to curry, Chef Kumar provides a new experience to it by blending authentic curry with ingredients like crab, lobsters, salmon, and more to provide the most unique culinary experience.
Chicken Jalfrezi is becoming more popular than the more traditionally known Chicken Masala, which is a top Indian curry worldwide. The Chicken Jalfrezi was full of flavour and delightful to enjoy. It was perfectly paired with the Saffron Pualo Rice complimenting the spice in the Chicken Jalfrezi.
The Old Delhi Butter Chicken cooked with a creamy tomato gravy was full of flavour and perfectly paired with their traditional Naan adding even more buttery flavour to it.
The Mango Lassi was creamy and refreshing, making it a perfect traditional drink to compliment the authentic Indian flavours. And don’t forget to check out some of their signature cocktails, served at the restaurant’s bar, which beautifully compliments the décor of the space – a space that blends the classic beauty of Indian aesthetic with the rustic charm of the exposed brick and limestone that makes it uniquely Kingstonian. This was the best Indian food I’ve had in years!
