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.

Very pricey, service poor, food a definite no go. Not recommended. Big waste of money. Menu limited.

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

Don't believe the hype about this restaurant - it is terrible. All the advertising and social media hype belie just what an awful restaurant this is in food, service, price and atmosphere. At the extortionate prices they charge you think you were at a top end restaurant however the food is par or sub-par compared to a mall franchise restaurant.... More

When you arrived, my staff immediately informed me that you are a Mr Price Guy. The denim was clearly not a labelled denim. We immediately knew you were on a low budget, hence the complaint regarding the price of the food. When my waitress saw you with your finger up your nose whilst eating, she immediately ran to the toilet... More

We had a take away sushi. Best ever. The staff was very friendly on the phone when ordering and when we collected the smells from the kitchen from the beautiful food was driving us insane

The ever so succulent eisbein, awesome asian steak and the wonderful new fusion sushi, the entertainment provided regularly and the awesome idea of the night market, this is for sure the best place to be.

I eat regularly in Singapore and a Hong Kong and Nam Jai feels and tastes as close as Africa can get to the Orient. Unpretentious set up, waterside views, attentive staff, wonderful authentic flavours (order the asian not the classic south african mea ls). Five stars to the Angry Pork Belly!

The Thai green curry and my sushi starter were flawless. A truly delicious experience and a trendy and bold dining asset at the harbour. Fresh, new styles of cooking meet traditional dishes that have distinct signature and flair - testament to the chef's passion and innovation in the kitchen. Service friendly and attentive. Nam Jai House will be our first... More
