“Good food, limited menu.”
Reviewed February 10, 2013

The food is very good here. There isn't a huge selection, butI I will take a place that does what it does well on a consisitent basis over a place that can't figure out what its niche is.

“Cozy and delicious. Great for take out.”
Reviewed December 10, 2012

This is a very small restaurant with few tables. It's probably a little chilly to sit by the door when it's cold outside. I always to take out from there. It is authentic and delicious. No hesitations in recommending it! Yum!

It's a tiny place, not alot of room to sit.... but the food is worth it! DELICIOUS! That is the only way to describe it. Owners and staff are friendly and cheerful. I am glad that our neighborhood finally has a great vietnamese restaurant like this! I highly recommend!!!!!!

“Delicious”
Reviewed January 8, 2012

I've been to Nam Nam three times now. Twice was carryout, ate in once. It is very tiny, but they do have outdoor seating in nice weather. Their predecessor, Simply Thai, did so well in this location that they expanded and moved across the street and even added a second location. I predict the same will happen with Nam Nam. I had the vermicilli dish once, which was cold. The flavors were good, but it wan't my favorite dish. The clay pot catfish is fabulous with an interesting sauce. However, the one meal I cannot resist is the Shaking Beef. My husband actually ate it 3 times in one week! Moist chunks of tenderloin are marinated in a tangy sauce then flash cooked. So lean, yet it melts in your mouth. It comes with a dipping sauce and a mixture of fresh greens.

Once, on Christmas Eve, we stopped by for an order of beef and they were out. They were kind enough to tell us to return in 20 minutes and they would get some more. That's the kind of people who run this business! Whether you dine in or carry out, you won't be disappointed. The prices are reasonable as well.
