We didn't get further than the desk at the entrance door. First ouside at the streer there was a guy asking if we were invited by some-one. As we didn't have a personal invitation we were asked to walk up the stairs beside the red mat. That was only for invitees. We were the only ones going in so the... More

If you are inclined to spend time in a restaurant/ night club where you greeted with unfriendly doormen and lousy service, then go ahead and visit On the other hand if you want to have a nice evening out on the town I am not sure that this is the place you want to go to to spend your money.

We had brunch at Namu with 5 friends a Sunday morning. The brunch was very tasty and the restaurant succeeded to offer something different from the traditional scandinavian bunch table, which was a delightful surprise. The starter table was lovely with different salads, small crunchy home-made, oily nachos with tapenade, guacamole, salsa and hummus, meatballs etc. The warm food was... More

I went there with my boyfriend yesterday to enjoy their great brunch. They served very tasty salads (e.g. wasabi pasta, tuna pasta, cinnamon couscous, etc) which were all very fresh with lots of herbs. Definitely something you don´t get at every corner. Then they also had some warm dishes (different meat, grilled tomatoes, fries, mushrooms etc.) which were also very... More

First of all, the service was friendly but not smooth at all. We ate two courses and we were served by four different waitresses. Each time we had to wait for a long time to get a waitress to serve us. The restaurant didn't even seem to be busy, so we thought the waitresses didn't really know how they should... More

We were looking for a place to eat before coing clubbing in Helsinki. Could not have chosen a better place! Namu turned out to be an inexpensive restaurant offering Californian/Mexican -style food. Because the restaurant is called Namu Food & Lounge, it has two sections - restaurant and nightclub. We entered the restaurant side around 8 pm, stayed until closing... More

So I guess this place must have been an Asian style restaurant at one point but has reopened as a California style bar and restaurant now. We were in the shopping center where it is located and thought by the looks of it it might be really expensive. Luckily we took a look at the menu and saw that it... More

The service was was amatuer-class, very young, inexperienced waiters/tresses. Starter = poor, main course = very good (ribs), desert = ok (extremely small portion). The interior was not very cosy, a compromise when one tries to combine a classy food restaurant and a night club...
