Namaste India deserves applause for bringing another ethnic restaurant to Arvada in 2013. Both of Namaste’s owners are from Nepal: Ramnath Sah runs the kitchen, and Bibek Rauniyar, who moved to Colorado to pursue a degree in chemistry and math and worked throughout college at Yak & Yeti and Jewel of India, is the general manager. For the most part, Rauniyar says, Namaste’s food is prepared as it would be made at home. Still, like so many Indian, Chinese, Thai and Malaysian restaurants in this country, Namaste tends to turn back the heat and scale back the spices in order to please an American audience. However, most Denver diners are likely to be pleased with many of the dishes on Namaste’s very long menu, particularly if they order the korma, which is more nuanced than the versions you usually find at Indian restaurants in America; the lamb vindaloo, a specialty of the Indian state of Goa, promises even more intrigue, with ample spices and plenty of lemon juice.
