Last Friday saw the second ever South West Blogger Social. This time a small, yet I like to think select, group of bloggers met for some rather lovely curry at Bristol’s Namaskar Lounge.
Namaskar Lounge is centrally located on Bristol’s Welsh Back and is truly an Indian with a difference. The decor is incredibly sleek and stylish boasting an open-kitchen and rather lovely cocktail bar. The food is not only beautifully flavoured but presented in a modern, elegant way. And ladies, the bathroom was immaculate!
The staff could not have been more helpful and were able to advise myself and the lovely Babberblog on a suitable wine from the well-appointed drinks menu. I opted for a chicken dhansak for my main along with pilau rice which proved to be delightful. It had a nice kick of heat without being too spicy and not at all greasy. The naan-bread I stole from Babberblog was also light and non-greasy and even this was presented with some style.
We were lucky enough to be joined by fellow bloggers Purple Mum, Knitty Mummy and Circus Queen and it was my first opportunity to meet the lovely Medicated Follower of Fashion, who truly is as stylish as she sounds, and the very funny Mutterings of a Fool who shamed me with his admission of running EVERY SINGLE MORNING! He has two littlies at home as well so have no idea where he gets his energy from, though he was able to give me a couple of jogging tips.
The general feedback from all was that it was absolutely delicious and I know a few will be returning with their partners and families soon, myself included. With mains coming in at around £15 with accompaniments it is not the cheapest Indian in town, but it is very likely to be the most stylish and in my opinion is worth the extra few pounds. If you have a special occasion coming up this would make a lovely setting for an evening meal, and if you request a table by the window you will also get wonderful views across the river from the first floor.
I really cannot recommend them highly enough.
For more information and to view their menus why not pop on over to their website here.
Disclosure: No payment was received for this review however Namaskar Lounge were kind enough to give us a discounted food-rate for the evening. All opinions expressed are mine alone and 100% honest.
