It’sfair to say Indian food in London can be a bit hit and miss, unless of course you know where to go. Namaaste Kitchen is definitely the place to go in Camden – just don’t be put of by the slightly glitzy interiors, the food here well worth a trip.
The restaurant is sister to Salaam Namaaste in Bloomsbury site and specialises in grilling. We started with the Barwan Panir Shaslik, or four chunky squares of home made cottage cheese filled with spices as we like to call them and the Tandoori Aatish e-Jingha, a jumbo prawn marinated and cooked in a tandoor giving it a slightly crisp coating and juicy centre.
We followed with Char grill Jingha, huge, juicy tiger prawns marinated with ginger, yoghurt, paprika, ground spices, dried mango and ajwain seeds and the Chettinad Chicken; a hearty curry with quite an after kick served with coconut rice. Freshly baked keema naan and a bowl of creamy dahl finished us off. Although we did make space for an Indian Tea, of the cocktail variety.
For decent Indian grub in Camden at reasonable prices, Namaaste Kitchen has it covered.
