Chaat, Lassi, and Chai. Oh, My!

Join us at Namaste Café in Uptown and enjoy traditional Indian street food like you've never experienced in Minnesota! Try everything from 3 different types of Chaat (traditional Indian street food), Mango Lassi (traditional Indian yogurt smoothie), to Mumbai-style Chai, and more!

Get ready to dance to Bollywood beats by none other than DJ Karma, and partake in authentic cultural experiences and games curated by Minnesota's own, CultureTastes:

  • Create your own rangoli masterpiece! Rangoli art is made with colored powders, flower petals, and chalk. The designs span from simple to intricate and are limited only by your imagination.

  • Take a selfie! Throw on a sari or kurtha, grab a sign, and snap a pic with your besties at our selfie station.

  • Test your spice knowledge! You've tasted them in food, but can you identify Indian spices? Look, smell, and feel them, and make your guesses for a chance to win some awesome prizes ... and some bragging rights!

  • Get a Henna Tattoo! Sit down, relax, and experience the art of Henna (temporary) tattoo by none other than Minneapolis Mehndi.

  • Play with food! In addition to being eaten or planted, seeds are used in many Indian games. Challenge a friend, and try your hand at some traditional games!

  • Shop the bazaar! Pick up Indian jewelry, spices, and handicrafts at the marketplace table!
