I've eaten at Namul twice now. The service is friendly. The decor is very pleasant, a combination of wood and antiques; very nice. The food is very fresh and delicious. Generally too much for me to eat in one sitting, so I can look forward...More

Went for lunch based on the reviews. Place was empty (sunny Friday). Service was friendly. Had one if the lunch specials. Nice fresh vegetables with a bit if shrimp on a lot of rice. Tasty. $10.50. Good but not orgasm-inducing. Will try again for supper.

The one and only Korean restaurant in Nanaimo! Namul is a Korean word for seasoned or sauteed vegetables and any edible greens or herbs. Our menu consists of authentic Korean cuisine, fusion Korean cuisine, and many kinds of rice and noodle bowls. We have gluten-free options as well as vegan options. We don't use any MSG or other food additives. We don't deep fry anything either. We cook everything the right way for the full healthy nutrition. We freshly hand-cut all of our vegetables and meats for our food. For an authentic genuine home-style restaurant in Nanaimo, come to Namul and enjoy the fresh and homemade food
