Namaste vs. Foodshop 45

Both establishments have good food, great staff and friendly owners, who are often seen working alongside their staff rather than bossing them around. So, this review is in no way meant to be negative against Foodshop 45. Please go there. You won’t be disappointed.

However, if you compare the two, Namaste is definitely a notch above Foodshop 45 for the following reasons:

* Namaste offers at least twice as many options on their menu from both Northern and Southern India.
* If you don’t know what to order, just call one of the owners over (a husband-wife duo from India) and tell them what you like and what you want to avoid. They will order for you and you won’t be disappointed.
* Foodshop 45 cuisine is great, but Namaste is the real deal when it comes to authentic Indian cooking.
* Large group? No problem. Namaste is very spacious with plenty of seating.
* If I only had hot garlic nan from Namaste to live on for the remainder of my days on this planet, I would have nothing to complain about in life ever. Yes, it’s that good. Feed your kids some Namaste garlic nan and they’ll graduate from Harvard. Give your boss some of this magical bread you’ll be promoted to your dream job.

To be fair, Foodshop 45 has some selling points as well. There was more thought put into the décor at Foodshop than at Namaste. The view at Foodshop is much better as you are overlooking Truc Bach lake. And, you can sit on the floor at Foodshop if you’re into that kind of thing. So, if you’re looking for a cozier atmosphere, Foodshop should be your destination.

I ordered the Chicken Tikki Masala with some rice. This would have nice had they been brought out together rather than the rice coming out 5 minutes later. The Chicken was chewy and sinewy. The sauce and rice were great. What was not great was the fact that 2 hours after my meal I started to feel very hot! This meant going to bed feeling a little worse for wear (sad considering I hadn't even been drinking). In the early morning I just had to get up and use the bathroom... suffice to say, the sauce was not as tasty the 2nd or 3rd time round.

Atmosphere was not pleasant, it was noisy and hard to hear the conversation across the table. Also, restaurants that do not include tax in the menu prices and the "tax not included" in small print irks me somewhat.

The new Namaste on 46 Tho Nhuom Street is stunning - bright and airy. It seats over 250 people but there is enough space so you don't feel crowded. But the real reason to go is Gopi - If there were Oscars for restaurateurs he would be first on the list. For over 10 years we've followed him in his different restaurants. Never intrusive he always suggests the perfect meal. The food is still the best Indian food in Hanoi ... or maybe Vietnam ... or maybe ...

5 stars for the food .... A true taste of India in Hanoi. This is THE place to go to if you miss flavorful curries, yummy naan bread and crunchy paper dosas. Pure bliss.

They had to move from Lo Su to this new location and I am glad of it. The new place is more modern, spacious and comfortable. And it looks like exactly like restaurants in South India, that is to say a little bare but not a Hollywood or colonial version of India. Their cooking also is genuine, freshly made, generous and tasty. Try their spectacular paper dhosa or their delicious tandoori. The quality does not vary. The owner is incredibly considerate, he discreetly supervises everything and makes sure his guests are happy. Nothing escapes him. I like going there.
