Vietnamese Cafe style

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... read more

I had lunch and ordered the Saigon noodles with chicken. DELICIOUS! 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. It looked and tasted NOTHING like my lunch! It was terrible......more like chicken lo mien with... More

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

First time at this restaurant and won't be last! Service was wonderful and waitress made fantastic recommendations. I had the chicken vermicelli, plenty of fresh, crispy vegetables. Sauce on side was delicious. Hubby had the carmalized claypot catfish and declared it nirvana! The building and interior is not much but the food is out of this world!

I can not describe how good the food is here. It is absolutely amazing and extremely flavorful. The shaking beef is so good and tender that I can eat it several times a week. It is my favorite dish from any restaurant and I eat out quite a bit. It has even inspired me to try to make this dish... More

I got the Saigon shrimp and noodles which is also fantastic. It was big portions for the price, enough for lunch the next day. They had a nice bear... More

My daughter and I had lunch at Nam Nam on 6/25/2014. I ordered the summer rolls and a small salad with tofu. She had the Banh Mi, a Vietnamese sandwich. The summer rolls were the best I have ever had--big "real" shrimp inside with all-fresh ingredients and delicious sauce. The salad had super-fresh mixed greens of baby lettuces, and the... More

Great food friendly staff. Dine in facility is a little small, but food is fab. I usually get the noodle soup. Lots of veggies and mushrooms and servings are huge. My wife loves their curry. The staff is always friendly, run by a family so they do every thing very personally. We highly recommend Nam Nam.

Have had meals in both HCMC and Ha Noi, and we have Pho Grand in St. Louis which is as good as it gets in the US. Nam Nam was good but not great. Pho broth too sweet and light. The appetizers are good we had the two rolls. Those impressed but the peanut sauce is not homemade. Vietnamese crepes... More
