Update August 21, 2019 - Namaste opened today, August 21, 2019. Let's all support them and give them a try.
Namaste has opened a new restaurant featuring Indian Cuisine and is located in the former home of Spinello's East Coast Eatery at 35 E Main Street. Opening date was August 21, 2019. The restaurant is located right next to the (now gone) Yogurt In Love yogurt shop.
The owners have noted that they are not initially taking reservations given the size of the location. Remember they do takeout too so if you don't have time to go out to dinner you can order and pickup. We'll update this when we hear of a change.
Parking can be challenging in this area. There is some street parking but pretty busy at most eating hours. There is also some parking on College Avenue, behind Nicks Next Door. Additional parking is available along the street in front of the Los Gatos City Hall / Library and its a very short/quick walk.

Update: June 27, 2019
There's new "now hiring" sign up on the front door so they are in the final stages of prepping for the opening of this Indian Cuisine restaurant. Opening is estimated to be around the first of July. Stay tuned; we'll let you know when the opening day is official.
The town is all abuzz over the news that our pasta fave, Pastaria & Market is moving to 27 N Santa Cruz; the location vacated by OPA! We don't have a date yet, but as soon as we get an update, we'll let you know. Personally I'm super-excited about this one!
For Some historical fun, here is the history of the businesses that have been in this location in the last forty years or so:
