Description: 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.

The waiters were awesome. Very welcoming place. Food was fresh, and quite decent, but was lacking coconut flavor in the Thai curries. But understandable as it is not very accessible in Zimbabwe. The owner, Mrs.Toy came to see us at our table and made sure that we were well taken care of. Definitely recommended if you want a change of cuisine in Victoria Falls Area, from European and Western food. They also had decent collection of Chinese dishes-Plus lots of Vegetarian choices. Stick to Chicken dishes, as shrimps were very small.

We love Thai food, we were a bit sceptical about eating here! We didn’t expect Thai food in Zimbabwe.
Located upstairs in the Elephant Walk shopping arcade. Colourful decor in a lovely location.
The service was very attentive and we were very pleased to hear the owner and chefs were Thai. We ordered a chicken green curry and a beef red curry. Both were delicious and tasted very authentic, with some of the traditional vegetables substituted for what is available in Zimbabwe. We then shared banana fritters which were delicious.
Portions are very generous and we were very impressed.
Definitely worth a try. They also have a Chinese menu on offer.

I love take-out from Nam-Took. It is good comfort food and tastes great. It is in an easy location to walk to and it is open-air.

I recently visited Victoria Falls. My family and I ate at Nam Took on the first day we arrived, then again 4 more times over 2 weeks.
The food is phenomenal and the service outstanding. Toi is front of house and head chef, the best recommendation I can make is do not order off the menu. Talk to Toi and tell her what you feel like eating, then sit back and let her cook up a storm.

I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND Nam Took.
