20 Renmin Nan Lu, Sect.4, Chengdu

Phone: (028) 85569118

Service here has declined so much over the past two years that all we can write is passable food served by possibly the most uncooperative staff in Chengdu.

    Well, Cacaja's food might not be great great but it's always on the same level the times i've been there. SO if you dont like surprises, stick to Cacaja.
    But this place here, Namaste, the food - i dont find it good. it might be sometimes very good but its not stable. plus the service.... Man...

    Oh, yeah, another thing - their menu!!

    I think it is common sense that if the chicken has bones it would be a sign or whatever on the menu as "Bone" or something. But there? its totally opposite. Only chicken curries which dont have bones has a "no bone" sign.
    So my friend, who followed her c ommen sense, accidentally ordered a normal looking curry on the menu without any sign says it has bones but turned out to be has bones!

    that was my last time and it will be the very last time too...

    (im feeling very negative about all the non-chinese restaurants in chengdu.. seem like none of them is getting better but continuiously getting worse... Btw, still no Brother's Kitchen???)

    Seems to me that the readers have always been at odds with the editors on Namaste given that it keeps winning the readers awards despite the lousy write up.

    Personally I love the place. Sure, the service is nothing great, but then according to the reviews for Cacaja it's nothing great there either. (far from 'most uncooperative staff in Chengdu' though -- have you ever been to a Post Office?!) The food at Namaste's priced somewhere between Cacaja and the Tandoor and probably somewhere between the two for standard of cooking. Neither the original or new Cacaja have ever really impressed me much with their food (and the Binjiang Lu branch certainly was getting pretty grotty last I was there), but the Tandoor's way too expensive so Namaste is a happy medium for me.
