Reader: How about an American restaurant in India that serves tuna casserole and Hamburger Helper?

Saag paneer at Namaste India: the mild, mild West.
Saag paneer at Namaste India: the mild, mild West.

The owners of Namaste India, which Gretchen Kurtz reviewed last week, are both from Nepal and say they make their food the same way they would back home -- but while the fare is solid, it's also a little stolid. Namaste's kitchen does stock ginger, cumin, turmeric, cardamom, coriander and chiles. But like so many Indian, Chinese, Thai and Malaysian restaurants in this country, it tends to turn down the heat and scale back the spices in order to please an American audience.

And while many Denver diners will be pleased, it left us looking for more. See also: Namaste India gets mild applause in our review

What would be the equivalent for an American restaurant in India? Says Steven:

I'm going to move to India and open an American food place that serves tuna casserole, mac and cheese and Hamburger Helper...

Don't forget, we've already sent McDonald's around the globe....
