I went to Namaskaar in Paramus (on Route 4 West, in the non-pictoresque Mall at IV) for the first time yesterday. I had heard good things about it, and thought I'd check it out for lunch.

In a nutshell, it was really quite good. I was originally disappointed to see that the buffet had very standard Northern Indian food (I don't mind that it's Northern Indian, I was just looking for more unusual dishes). However, once I tried the "chicken curry" and tandoori chicken, I was impressed. The food is not run-of-the-mill Indian food for Americans. The dishes (including, as well, a vegetable dish and a Daal) were extremely flavorful. Perhaps this is why I noticed a number of Indians and/or Pakistanis having lunch there, as well (I nearly always take it as a good sign if there are "locals" eating in an ethnic restaurant, as long as we are ordering off of the same menu).
