Service was great. However the sashimi was tiny. They made us pay for more ginger when we order about 40 pieces and only gave a small amount. Also has the weirdest toilet signs I have ever seen.

The meal was out of this world, the atmosphere was great and the service was nothing to sneeze at. I will most definitely recommend Nam Jai to all my friends. Thanks for a lovely day.

This is the third time we have tried this restaurant and every time we hope that they will redeem themselves in their food department. Unfortunately, my teriyaki pork belly was overcooked, rubbery and too sweet. My family had a similar experience- their chicken was overcooked. Our food also took an hour, and the music kept alternative between loud and soft.... More

The meals here are on the pricey side, but they do not disappoint! The portions are extremely generous. The Thai Curry is just out of this world! Soooo much flavour, you can taste every single ingredient and the prawns were cooked to perfection. Also have to rave about the bamboo tempura prawn sushi - so divine. The Chef at this... More

Its just on the sea side walk. They give you a menu but its all on the wall so you dont have to sit and if you dont like it get up and leave. The service is great so helpful and kind. The food was OK but they can do better. Also the price is fair.

Most expensive sushi in town. Portions are also small, especially the sashimi. And the whole plate comes drizzled in mayonnaise, even after asking to leave mayonnaise off. Disappointing.

We arrived with family around 2pm after chilling out at the Small Craft Harbour. Staff was friendly but the menu is just fairly boring and a bit overpriced. We shared some tempura prawns which came in far too crusty cover. 4 for R 90. A not too inviting crispy duck which was far too fat came with a price tag... More
