Good Pre-Theatre

For a change we thought we would go to Nam for a pre-theatre dinner. There is a choice of Vietnamese or Cantonese menus. There were no European dishes on offer. Three 3 courses for £11.95 is good value. For my starter I had spare ribs Peking style. The dish was beautifully presented and the ribs... read more

We have been eating at Nam's for several years and for some reason had never written a review so here it is. In this instance there were three of us and we went for the pre-theatre meal which is excellent value. You can choose from either a Vietnamese menu or a Cantonese menu. For starters I had diced salted chilli... More

Went here for the first time a few weeks ago, had the sizzling steak satay and fried rice. Very tasty, would definitely go back! Great value as well on the lunch menu

Food was nice but I did not receive a knife which I thought was bizarre!! I recommend the Vietnamese pudding as I savoured and enjoyed every bite of the gorgeous food. A few criticisms is that anytime I asked what a certain dish was- the waiter did not know! Also my change from the bill should have been £7.10 but... More

Smaller than I expected, felt cramped. Loud, so if you want a romantic night or a catch up its not ideal, and the people beside you will hear your convo. I expected a great meal but I found it only to be adequate and my lemonade was room temperature in a warm glass, wasn't enough for my meals and I... More

Although I enjoyed my meal, the time we had to wait between courses is unacceptable. It's happened on each occasion we've eaten here. Staff do not seem happy and no wonder, they don't get the tips you leave for them. Shocking and in my opinion pure greed from the owners, as the staff tend to be young people trying to... More

nams always delivers a great service and great food but I was shocked to hear that the staff do not get their tips. I think that if a customer decides to tip their waiter then they absolutely deserve the tips!!!

Our party only order a main course, and thank god we did as it would have taken about 6 days for them to process a 2 course meal. It took well over an hour for our table of 5 to get one course. Service aside, the good is of good quality and there is plenty of it. Slightly overpriced and... More

So I frequently used to visit this place as i loved the chicken chow mein. One night I phoned for a pick up and I wait a hour even though was told would be ready in 30 mins. Another occasion I phoned for a delivery and as usual I expressed about my food allergies and if they could take special... More
