    Noise level was deafening. Uncomfortable backless wooden stools meant to be used as chairs were anything but. Some pieces of steak were tender and good while other pieces of meat were tough and because the the pieces were too big they had to be ripped apart using 2 pairs of chopsticks. Again the greens in the salad were not torn into bite size pieces.

    Great neighbourhood gem of a restaurant to satisfy your eclectic taste buds. Korean dishes with a flair! Service was warm and friendly. Cool addition to put coats and bags in baskets under the table. Could use more art on walls to create a more authentic experience.

    Amazing food, and was quite enough to talk to my partner even with the community tables / closed quarters. However, we had a reservation and we were a little slow to be seated. Other than that it was fantastic - waitress even brought over extra sweet potatoes when we raved about how good they were.

    Love Namu Gaji! Creative, fun, delicious. Food is next level. The chefs are masters of flavor and the grill. Appreciate that produce comes from the Namu farm. Super special place. Order family style for lunch or dinner and you will not be disappointed. Many dishes only available for a season or nightly special!

    The place got good vibes with friends again, it requires something to complement with bits of ground meat & veggies to balance out. I wished the seasonings were more Korean inspired. A nice attempt for a fusion-y restaurant but needs further studies of both Japanese & Korean cuisines.

    Food and service are always wonderful. I always take out of town guests to Namu because I know we will never be disappointed. Food explorers are always delighted and the less adventurous order the hamburger which is one of the best in San Francisco.

    I absolutely love the food here. It is innovative, creative, and tasty. On this particular visit, we had the brussel sprouts, maitake mushroom, gyoza, steak, and stonepot. All of which (except the steak, of course) are or could be made vegan. For dessert, the butter mochi....delicious. As for service, it's pretty good, but it took a very long time for an initial visit from a server (we sat there with menus for around 15 minutes). Aside from that, service is knowledgeable and friendly. The restaurant was absolutely packed. This is one of our standbys that doesn't let us down.

    We had a reservation but still had to wait 15 min to be seated bc the hostess was nowhere to be found. When seated we also waited for a while just to get water because the restaurant was understaffed. Food was pretty good, but paired with the service and noisey ambiance, it’s not worth it.

    Love the food here. As someone allergic to both gluten and dairy, it's heaven finding a place that has amazing gluten-free okonomiyaki, and everything marked that can be modified on the menu. For Valentine's Day, there was a great avocado-based chocolate mousse. Don't ever change, Namu Gaji. Loyal customer here.

    We live Namu! We live in Maryland but spend about 8- 9 weeks in San Fran every year visiting with our son and his family. We MUST get to Namu several times. My husband loves the Okynomyoki and we have not found it in our area. I mix it up some and get different dishes each time but everything is always relish.

    Great place for a get together with friends. Food served family style. Great variety of Korean Asian-fusion bites. We had most of the appetizers which were all delicious. Then we had the steak, the bimbim bop, and the ramen - again, all delicious and flavorful. Overall an excellent place for good Asian-fusion cuisine.

    They obviously forgot about one of our lunches ordered, however wouldn’t admit it. Everyone who ordered after us received food way before we received even one dish, then next one took at least 10-15 minutes.

    Best okonomiyaki in the city- I pretty much bully at least one other person to share it with me. I added some oysters to my dinner this visit- delicious, briny, and sweet. It was a cold and rainy night- so we opted for the chocolate cake. Stupendous- chocolate with a bright hint of lemon, and a warm center. Would order again.

    Food was excellent! Unusual pairings and great tastes. I felt the prices were very high- it’s a tapas style / shared plate experience but a few of the small plate prices were 18.00.. seating is communal and if you have a bad back it may be uncomfortable- we sat on low, small, no back stools.

    The food is fabulous— at the same time is creative and inventive and also something is familiar and comforting. Don’t miss the dumplings, the Okonomyyaki (so flavorful!), the steak— but really everything is so tasty. Also great cocktails. The service is warm and attentive— Elise our server (who has waited on us before, too) is lovely and helpful. Fabulous evening all around!
