Staff, is always so welcoming and friendly. The food is fresh and authentic. If you are feeling this cold weather than a nice big bowl of Pho is what you need! Delicious and makes me feel whole again.

I've only been at lunch. They do a thriving take-away business. The seating arrangements are basic but comfortable, outdoor / patio dining is available in good weather. You come here for the food not the ambience. Consistently excellent food with many vegetarian options. They are not dumbing the food down for the gringos as far as I can tell --... More

I ordered two dished with beef and it tasted like it was really old meat, not fresh, and I was afraid to eat it. It did not taste right.

We've eaten here numerous times and loved the flavors, quality and value. It is cramped and very much a cafe but worth it. favorites have been the Vietnamese Crepe, Claypot Catfish, Claypot Eggplant and Tofu. We've had the Saigon noodles, pho ga and Buddah roll which are all very good. This is a weeknight place for us as its too... More

My family and I ordered carryout a couple of days later, and two of my family members ordered the same dish of Saigon noodles with chicken. I thought they received the wrong order.

The food here was good. I had the vermicelli bowl with shrimp. Tasty and well seasoned. The menu is rather limited but has plenty of variety. I'll surely go back to the other dishes. My main reservation will be cost. My lunch with tea was almost $20. Ouch! !

Nam Nam has absolutely delicious food. My husband loves the chicken fried rice, which is very fresh and flavorful. He adds a fried egg to the top! the shaking beef is my absolute favorite - delicious tender steak with two fantastic sauces. Yum, yum, yum! The atmosphere turns some people off - it's very small, even with the recent addition... More
