I frequently visit Nams, and although on the pricey side do not mind paying because the food is off excellent quality. However, the waiting times for courses is becoming increasingly ridiculous, if the waiting time is going to be so lengthy, a suggestion would be to at least refill the prawn cracker bowl whilst the customer waits.

As always, food excellent, only complaint was the amount of rice served was on the sparse side. Most of the waiting staff were fine, but one girl was so sullen and huffy that we ended up making a joke of it. Normally I defend Nams when people complain about the long wait for food, they are a busy popular restaurant... More

First of all I phoned to say I was running 15 mins late for my table which was booked for 6pm. I phoned the restaurant to inform them and I was told they were very busy that evening so I decided just to cancel my booking. Five minutes later I phoned back to say I would be there for exactly...

I have been to Nams restaurant a number of times and always found the food good and the staff helpful, however this isn't the case if you want a takeaway. The food was overpriced, the rice tasteless and the chips overcooked (to death). The meal, as a whole, was a complete let down and I would never go there again.

We never thought about Vietnamees food before this restaraunt opened in East Kilbride. The quality of food is only bettered by the service. A little gem and a must to visit when in EK

I do not understand how this place has so many good reviews, it is good but with that price you can eat at another for better quality food. It may be just me, but I didn't find the food fresh at all. I was here yesterday for dinner with my friends and it was like they dumped leftovers onto my... More
