Stopped in today for lunch for a break from the Overland Tour food. We had a really authentic Tom Yum and Pad Thai - and I've been to Thailand several times. Great service, ambience, cheap wine. Highly recommend

We had a really nice lunch at Nam Took. The staff is very friendly en has a lot of humour :-) We recommend Pad thai, sweat and sour chicken, satay and the crispy pork.

The place is not flash. Street lighting non-existent. Inside warm welcome. Tables on semi outdoors deck. Extensive Thai and Chinese menu. Owner is the chef. Service attentive without being too much. Food very tasty. Decor very simple. We would happily go again.

I think I expected too much based on the reivews. I don't think it's genuine Thai food. Food is o.k. please don't get me wrong. I am not saying it's terrible place but I wouldn't go back again.

I was disappointed by the good reviews. The pad thai was lacking though the tom yum soup was good. Green beef curry was also nice, though it could be thicker. Service was excellent

Kingdom Hotel is very close. It is 650 meters not worth a taxi. Very safe to walk at night. Take a small torch. The biggest risk you have is accidentally walking into a Warthog.

Open 7 days a week for lunch and dinner, Nam Took is an Asian Restaurantin central Victoria Falls adding to the cosmopolitan cheerful buzz of tourists and locals who will be quick and eager to recommend this great restaurant. Located just 800m from The Falls, Nam Took is situated upstairs under a welcoming, cool and high thatch roof looking out over riverine bushveld and beyond,out to the Victoria Falls Spray rising up into sky. The restaurant serves authentic Asian and all dishes including are cooked to order. Chef's recommendations to diners include daily specials but the spring rolls and spicy Tom Yum Prawn Soup are firm local favourites.
