Phenomenal Korean-American fusion cuisine, with many big, bold, unexpected flavors. The food is creative and all round delicious. The place also has a very cool vibe to it, and while the drinks selection is not vast it is very well put together and will have all you need. One of my favorite spots in town for a good dinner.

We came to Namu Gaji on their Noodle Night (First and Last Mondays of the month). We had the 8pm seating, unfortunately our party of 4 were not able to sit at a normal table but at a bar (we paid separately online). I think this could have been solved by calling ahead. $35 for a 3 course menu seemed pretty good. You choose a time slot and prepay for dinner. However one of the main reasons for the low rating, is that we were majorly rushed. They brought our main dish which seemed like a minute after bringing our first dish. And with the bar seating, the dishes and drinks were taking a lot of space. We had the duck noodle dish, chicken dipping noodle, and the vegetarian noodle dish. The chicken noodle and vegetarian noodle were a bit bland. However I liked the duck noodle dish. Unfortunately the crab tom yum noodle dish was out by our seating time. The dessert was a great save, since we all enjoyed the banana ganache dessert. (Although save some room, Bi-Rite ice cream is next door) Overall, I felt very rushed throughout dinner, unsure if that has to do with the fact we already pre-paid. There were definitely no other diners coming in after us on a Monday. I won't be coming back.

Kicking myself for not going sooner...simply, wow. Here goes: The burger was really tasty, had a nice spice and perfect char (definitely order this medium). The okonomiyaki was better than I had in Japan, but of course they use finer ingredients you wouldn't typically see. Washed these down with a Magnolia ale that complimented both dishes nicely. Decor is clean. Service was fast and attentive--on a crowded night at that. Nothing but good things to say.

This place is right near on Dolores Park, we stumbled upon it looking for some brunch…. Sweet Jesus, Namu Gaji will cure all ills (well at least that next morning post partying tired foggy head state). The interior is Asian inspired; sunny with lots of wood; family style seating; counter service. I chose to eat the Okinomiyaki (Osaka-style pancake) and my friend has the Dosirak (lunch box) with chicken. The Dosirak made for pleasant lunch sustenance. Paper dishes were a bit odd, but was really tasty nonetheless. Now when it came to my Okinomiyaki pancake, this was o-u-t-standing. It’s served in its own sizzling hot pan and be warned its hot and REALLY savory. Every taste sensation of umami is covered here I think. The soft and crispy pancake was filled with kimchi, scallions, vegetables, bonito flake (dried fermented fish), oko sauce, seasoned mayo and topped with a fried egg, wow. I loved eating it so much I burnt my mouth a bit ;-)

I want to give this place 5 stars so badly because the food here is incredibly delicious. But come on now, $3.50 for a chicken taco that is literally only one bite of food?! I'm a 5'2 sub-110 pound Asian chick, and I think I'd have to eat about 15 of those to be completely full. Ok, setting price and portion aside, I love that they use seaweed instead of tortilla for their tacos. I treat this place as a little afternoon snack shop when I decide to go hang out at Dolores Park.

Fantastic fusion Korean food. Loved their take on the bibimbap and the their burger... I also love that they serve cheap refreshing beers as well. Perfect for a date night or a tasty meal after hanging out in Dolores Park.
