We get takeout Lunch occasionally from Namu and it is always delicious. They do a great job of blending the spices. I have never personally been to the restaurant (guys I work with have always picked it up), but their food is delicious. I love...More

The local restaurant reviewer described this place as "paper tray gourmet" and I can see why. It's a combination coffee house and fast-casual Korean restaurant which sounds odd, but they make it work. Location is hard to find unless you know how to take the...More

This place has great food, great prices and a great atmosphere. Our whole party has a great time. The Korean food was amazing and they also have very good wine, beer and coffee! Go check them out, you won’t be disappointed.

The food is okay, not too impressed with what I got. However, I will be back to try some of their special sauces and spice it up a bit. The atmosphere is great and you can find a quiet corner to have a private conversation.
