Namaste Hindustan (Indian Restaurant)

By Thibaud (Jakarta100bars)
Namaste Hindustan is an upscale Indian restaurant in Setiabudi. The setting is not  as spectacular as other venues in Jakarta such as Hazara, but the food probably just as good.

We visited on a Sunday night and there was only another client that evening, an Indian. The manager is Indian also, and he greeted us when we entered. The waiters were very warm and knew about the food they were serving. This proved very useful since I'm still new to Indian food and I asked many questions.

We ordered the Paneer Makhani (also known as Paneer Butter Masala) and the Dum Biryani Hydrabadi Mutton. I didn't keep the bill unfortunately, but from what I remember, both dishes cost around Rp80,000. It is rather expensive for Jakarta, but affordable compared to Europe. Some pictures here:

Overall: Namaste Hindustan lacks a really beautiful setting to be perfect, but in spite of that, I enjoyed it and I will come back. The food was excellent (even for my still unexperienced tongue), comparable with another Indian restaurant tried a few weeks earlier, Queen's Tandoor.
Operating Hours:
Open daily from 11am to 3pm and to 6pm to 11pm

  1. Went for lunch to Namaste as recommended by a friend who is a regular clientele. We had the 80K++ all you can eat buffet, it was worth it. There was a lot variety on the buffet ranging from the northern to southern part of India, as explained by the Indian butler. The Lamb Briyani tasted exquisite and not to mention the Chicken Tikka. Everything was perfect, it was my first try of Indian cuisine and was instantly addicted. For dessert, we had the popular Gulab Jamun with vanilla ice cream, a perfect way to cleanse the palate. Too bad the atmosphere was pretty bland, service was ok. 8/10.
