I love nams, they have the best satay and I also love the beef chow mein :) The vermicelli noodle salad is also fantastic. The lunch specials are great value! Can't wait to go back.

It's been years since I visited this restaurant. It was a little tiny, average looking restaurant with great food. This haven't changed much. It's small, not much on looks but looks can be deceiving. The internal decor is quite pleasant, the service fast and friendly, the food delicious and the prices reasonable. The portion sizes are very generous Although I... More

We visited Nam for lunch today. We both ordered $11.00 lunch special. He had pork, I had chicken. They both came with salad and vermicilli. It was more than I could eat but every mouthful was absolutely delicious. I wish I could linger here longet to sample more of Nams mouthwatering offers!!!! Highly recommended.

Situated just off the main street this great little restaurant had been a family favourite for decades. The menu is one which caters for all who like to sample Asian food (Vietnamese cuisine in particular). A family run enterprise which provides diners with that special touch of personal service only a family restaurant truly can. Highly recommended!

This family run restaurant provides excellent Vietnamese food at a reasonable price. Only draw back is that the washrooms are outside and shared amongst the other businesses; other than that, highly recommended and very happy with the food. I would eat here again!

This is a small family run BYO business, which is always busy. Service is good and food is excellent. Especially love the fresh Vietnamese wraps that you make up yourself, also the chicken curry is another favourite. Very reasonable prices.
