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. The restaurant serves authentic Asian and all dishes including are cooked to order. Chef's recommendations to diners include daily specials but the spring rolls and spicy Tom Yum Prawn Soup are firm local favourites.

“Great addition to Victoria Falls dining”
5 of 5 bubbles 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.

“Excellent New addition to Vic Falls Dining”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 29, 2014 via mobile

Authentic Thai food ( plus Chinese, although we didn't taste). Thai chef even makes her own Spring Roll rice wrappers -- do try them. Enthusiastic manager and staff. Very reasonable prices both food and beverages. Just off the main street, the craft Mall is behind the banks. Seemed safe enough to walk at night.
