Description: Open 7 days a week for lunch and dinner, Nam Took is an Asian Restaurantin central Victoria Falls adding to the cosmopolitan cheerful buzz of tourists and locals who will be quick and eager to recommend this great restaurant. Located just 800m from The Falls, Nam Took is situated upstairs under a welcoming, cool and high thatch roof looking out over riverine bushveld and beyond,out to the Victoria Falls Spray rising up into sky.

“Stunning”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2014

We have been fortunate to have had a number of meals at this fabulous restaurant. Without exception, the food is incredible - either Thai or Chinese. You run out of superlatives when eating here. The decor is fresh and uncluttered, and a HUGE and welcome addition to Victoria Falls. Recommended without hesitation. Well run and authentic

“The Best Food in Vic Falls”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

We had a great family dinner in Vic Falls at the Nam Took, Thai Restaurant. The food was excellent. Decor is fresh and the owner and chef are VERY much involved and passionate about the place.
Highly recommended if eating in the falls.

“Authentic, inspired, healthy, great value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014 via mobile

Semi outdoors location at Elephants Walk, within sight and sound of the Falls and an easy, safe walk from most hotels. Open 12 noon to 9pm allowing for late lunches and early dinner flexibility for those with a hectic activity schedule this fabulous restaurant offers authentic Asian cuisine which may be adapted to all tastes and offers great value. They are licensed but you are welcome to bring your own without corkage. Hands on ownership/management ensures a great experience. A very welcome addition to Victoria Falls dining options.

“Great Thai food in Vic Falls”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2014

The spring rolls are amongst the best I have come across. The Tom Yum soup is delicious as well as the satay chicken and sweet n sour pork. The owner and chef is clearly passionate and the service is excellent. Can even take your own wine without any corkage. Fantastic - a welcome addition to Victoria Falls!

It is due to great feedback like yours that the "Nam Took Spring Rolls" are becoming legendary and may well be on the Top 10 List of things to do in Victoria Falls!. Thank you for your appreciation.

“Great addition to Victoria Falls dining”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2014

A new addition to Vic Falls dining choice, and a great one too! Situated upstairs in Elephants Walk shopping mall behind the banks and Ilala Lodge, we were welcomed to ice cold drinks at the bar while we went over the extensive menu. You have a choice of Tai and Chinese and can mix and match. We went for Thai and can highly recommend no.16: Prawns with Ginger, veges and oyster sauce. No9: Beef, Chicken, Pork in red curry paste and veges also great! Service was excellent and drinks prices reasonable, although the Clan MacGregor scotch should be a $1 cheaper than the rest of the Whiskeys on offer, considering it only costs $12 a bottle at Liquorama! Will be back soon to test the Chinese menu

We are very happy you enjoyed the ice cold beers and Thai food at Nam Took. You will also love the Chinese dishes next time you visit, especially the spring rolls, and try the pork Chow Mein. Thank you for pointing out the price on the whisky, and have adjusted it accordingly. We look forward to welcoming you back to Nam Took.
