Namaste Indian Restaurant, Paphos (Cyprus)

If you’re coming for holiday in Cyprus, you’re probably thinking the last thing you want to eat is Indian food.

But please hear me out!

After you tasted mezze in three local taverns, I can guarantee you will crave a bit of variety.

And more importantly – proper flavours.

And that’s exactly what you’ll find in Namaste Indian Restaurant.

Located near the bar street in Paphos and introduced to me by my vegan friend Liv, this place was a very pleasant surprise in the most unexpected ways.

If you don’t get impressed by the interior design, colourful chairs and relaxed atmosphere, I’m sure you will get excited about the menu variety. 

The menu is vegetarian and vegan-friendly and offers plenty of variety even for the most difficult to please.

The traditional Indian staples are complemented by a small selection of Chinese inspired dishes.

The prices are very reasonable and portions more than generous.

My absolute favourite was the starter – Sharing Chaat Platter – no idea what was there but it was so delicious!!

It is not the kind of Indian cooking you are probably used to – the sauces are not heavy and stuffy.

They are full of delicate flavours and carefully balanced to highlight the ingredients used.

The staff is super friendly and you will most likely get a glimpse of a cheerful chef who will come to greet you at your table.

What we had (in pictures): 

Sharing Chaat Platter (starter)

Tandoori Mushrooms (starter)

Beetroot cutlet (starter)

Garlic Naan Bread

South Indian Fish Curry

Prawn Masala

Chicken Rice and Butter Chicken.

During the week they have live music (don’t worry, no local dancers balancing glasses on their head). 

We visited during the week and didn’t have a problem getting the table of our liking.

If you fancy dinner full of flavour in a relaxed atmosphere, this is the place to be.
