"erg lekker gegeten, aardige bediening"

erg lekker gegeten, ik had het wel iets meer fusion verwacht. Het was mijns inziens 100% Vietnamees

"Restaurant week"
4.7 Cuisine 5 | Service 4 | Atmosphere 5

The restaurant is on an interesting little street like so many in Amsterdam. First impressions are lasting ones and if there was more thought put into the decor of the entrance it would make such a positive change. It needs work.

The restaurant is on an interesting little street like so many in Amsterdam. First impressions are lasting ones and if there was more thought put into the decor of the entrance it would make such a positive change. It needs work.
The service: we waited forever to get our drink orders taken and then 10 minutes later I received my glass of red wine, which was very pleasant, but my husband had to wait another 10 minutes for his beer. Really? It is not a huge restaurant and the servers were walking around not being terribly busy.
The food: was fine. Nothing to write home about and we were expecting better from reading the reviews. Why is Asian food so disappointing in NL? There is no reason for serving food with flavours and styles of the 60’s. Visit Vancouver. Learn what chefs and good cooks are doing. Come back and make a fortune selling really good food.

My husband and I went to Bo Nam during the Amsterdam restaurant week for a 4 course dinner. We had a very nice waiter, she was quick and did not miss any detail form our oder. Food was delicious.
Everything was nice, however we received too much food (I know this is not something to complain about), but we really ate too much. I think the portion of the courses are do not match the amount of courses perfectly. We asked to pack the most of the main course so we could take it home, and waiter was super helpful with this as well. Dessert was incredible.
One possible improvement - we did not really enjoy the cocktails much, however, food was great.

"Lang wachten op matig eten"
3.7 Cuisine 4 | Service 3 | Atmosphere 4

We hebben hier op een woensdagavond gegeten. Na ruim 1.5 uur hadden we amuse (1 kleine oester), wat brood, en 1e gang (flauwe vienamese springrol zonder saus). Bo Nam Spritz smaakte alleen naar limonade, en wodka (en vermouth) was ver te zoeken. Na het klagen kwamen andere gangen wat sneller op de tafel. Sommige ge...

We hebben hier op een woensdagavond gegeten. Na ruim 1.5 uur hadden we amuse (1 kleine oester), wat brood, en 1e gang (flauwe vienamese springrol zonder saus). Bo Nam Spritz smaakte alleen naar limonade, en wodka (en vermouth) was ver te zoeken. Na het klagen kwamen andere gangen wat sneller op de tafel. Sommige gerechten (zoals zalm in banaanblad) waren wel lekker. Op toetjes hebben we niet meer gewacht. Al met al was het geen leuke avond.

"Te goed om voor jezelf te houden!"

Gelegen in een straat waar ik sinds mijn studententijd amper meer kom, ligt verborgen parel Bo Nam. Tussen de kroegen en steakhouses zit nu ook een écht goed restaurant.

We begonnen met een Bo Nam Spritz (cocktail op basis van Belvedere wodka) en daarna nog maar eentje omdat deze zo lekker was.

Gelegen in een straat waar ik sinds mijn studententijd amper meer kom, ligt verborgen parel Bo Nam. Tussen de kroegen en steakhouses zit nu ook een écht goed restaurant.

We begonnen met een Bo Nam Spritz (cocktail op basis van Belvedere wodka) en daarna nog maar eentje omdat deze zo lekker was.

Hiernaast het 5 gangen verrassingsmenu gegeten. De ene gang nog lekkerder dan de ander. Kruidige gerechten met evenwichtige verhoudingen. Zowel vis, vlees als veganistische gerechtjes werden ons voorgeschoteld.

En zo vers als de ingrediënten, zo goed is de service. Informele bediening die in is voor een geintje.

Kortom: voor Bo Nam begeef ik me graag weer naar de Lange Leidse Dwarsstraat!

About Bo Nam

Cuisine: Asian, Vietnamese

Bo Nam is a restaurant/ bar concept located in the vibrant city center of Amsterdam since late 2016, near the infamous Leidseplein. The initiative of starting a Vietnamese restaurant with a hint of French bistro, originated from a long lasting friendship between five hospitality entrepreneurs and their shared love for Asia and its rich food culture (Nam in Vietnamese, simultaneously translates as five, as well as the South of Viet Nam).


Local entrepreneurs Bao An Nguyen Phuoc (Nghia N Nghia), Nghia Huynh (Nghia N Nghia), Thuan Hoang (Blender), Casper Reinders (Jimmy Woo, Bo Cinq, Lion Noir, Chicago Social Club, A L’Elephant du Congo, Blue Boy d’ Amsterdam) and Ho Kai Yen (Dynasty, Bo Cinq, Lion Noir, Woo Bro’s) intended to create a contemporary oriental ambiance, without making obvious choices. Hence, the easy-going urban experience and the eclectic interior design.
