Crispy duck was the worst I have ever experienced, they have no idea how to prepare Asia cuisine and should rather stick to simple dishes like steak egg and chips.

They advertise a lunch special, steak, egg & chips for R59. For a so-called award winning restaurant to have reduced themselves to lunch time specials should have been the first warning bell. We were the only people in the restaurant and it took them an hour to serve the most basic of dishes. The steaks came as ordered but it... More

Good venue, but over cooked fish in a sauce which was just salt and sugar. SALADE MISSED HALF OF THE INGREDIENTS , EVEN AFTER SENT BACK. Spring rolls cold in centre , when returned came back drenched in oil and soggy. White wine warm. Avoid this restaurant

The serving staff were very welcoming and made a good presentation on the specials of the day. The restaurant was quite empty as we were there just after they opened. The tempura prawn starter was very good with an excellent coriander pesto, but unfortunately with shop bought sweet chili sauce. I ordered a pork belly (first time ever), but was... More

The nam jai previously used to be in empangeni and the food was genuine Thai food. This new location seem to have a better venue overlooking the tuzi gazi waterfront in richards bay next door to the protea hotel on the waterfront. We ordered Veg(black bean) noodles and crispy duck. The waitress brought jasmine Veg noodles in error, however the... More

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
