“Not as good as before”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

Been coming here for many years but I feel the quality and taste is not as good as before, there are many other choices in the same area.

“Good food and service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

Service whilst not as fast as some may like... fast food it ain't!! Food was fresh made and tasty. Service was pleasant and polite. Not over priced. Was good to see the staff eating the food they prepared.

“A gem of a restaurant in a sea of choice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2013 via mobile

There are so many restaurants in ADAM it's hard to know what is going to satisfy your hunger and deliver good value and service.
Nam Kee is a little place with a take away at the front and the restaurant at the back. It doesn't look like much but one think you do notice straight away- it's full. And better than that- its full of locals! You don't need to make a reservation and you don't need to "dress for dinner". The food is freshly made, the tastes are amazing, the service is as fast as fresh food allows.
Highly recommend.
Have been back 3 nights and will probably return again tonight. :)

“Not what it used to be!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

I only went to this particular Chinese because it used to be one of the best ones. Howevever the last couple of times food wasnt as good as it used to be. Last time my duck was cold, pork belly was also not very warm. I like my food fresh, hot, and full of flavor. Not here anymore.
I will have to start trying other ones nearby.
