Namaste | Jongno-gu, Seoul

Anyone who’s ever taken a beginner yoga course knows that “namaste” means “welcome” in languages all over the subcontinent. That includes Nepal, which is helpful since this, as well as many other Indian restaurants in Seoul, is run by Nepalese.

If you ever wanted to dress up like a sherpa, there’s an adjacent shop where you can buy all sorts of Nepalese garb. Namaste is very cozy and specializes in southern Indian cuisine, which is a bit spicier and less creamy than northern variations.
