OC Weekly's Description
Namastey India a deceptive place—your classic ethnic store of streaked floors, plastic tables, calling cards, and hi-def television tuned in to native entertainment (sumptuous Bollywood movies in this case, of course). The buffet has no markers, although your Orange County life should’ve already taught you how to distinguish your paneer (cheese) from your palak (spinach) and tikka masalas. Poster boards on the wall feature other hand-scribbled specials—order from here, from the buffet, it doesn’t matter but order because the people behind you are fidgeting. Namastey’s emphasis is on Punjabi-style food, which means the meats and breads come from the tandoor, and the spice level is cosmic.
Tips from foursquare
The flavors of New Delhi come alive in a small restaurant tucked away in an ethnic grocery store in Buena Park, where the owner-chef prides himself on from-scratch recipes and freshly prepared dishes.

Appetizing Indian food on a budget!
Everything served on foam plates and plastic ware. Great tasting Indian food and friendly service. Very good Naan and Chicken Tikka. YUM!!
Gotta call to make sure they have lamb curry, as the chicken marsala is rather dry/tough.
