Incredible food and atmosphere. I'm a vegetarian and they had so many great options (not just that one pasta they have to put on the list to please us). The cabbage salad and mushroom appetizer were awesome and split-able. I went with my dad and we also shared the veggie stone pot. That pot was a tone of veggies and rice, and for two hungry humans, we found 2 apps, 1 salad, and the stonepot a great amount of food. We also got great advice on a delicious sake to go with the food, which we drank out of custom made (in Berkley) ceramic tea cups. The staff was awesome as was the environment. I can't wait to go back.

The notoriously long waits on weekends kept me away from Namu Gaji for far too long. Once I took the plunge, the wait for 4 on a weekend evening was less than a half hour, and the staff will gladly bring you sake while you wait. Although the restaurant is small and seating is limited, thoughtful touches like coat hooks by the door and tiny bouquets on the table up the comfort level.

great spot in the Mission for New Korean American (NKA) cuisine. We came here since they offer Korean fried chicken(KFC) only on wednesdays. They do not list it on their menu but you can call in advance to order it. It comes with a side of spicy dashi gravy and pickled daikon and a spicy slaw. It is drenched in a sweet and tangy sauce but the skin still remains crispy since it is double fried which the inside is moist and juicy. also it is conveniently located next door to Bi-Rite Ice Cream for after dinner dessert noms the servers are very attentive and the open kitchen allows you to see everything being prepared

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.

I am not a fan of a lot of Korean food but this California Korean fusion joint nestled in the Mission is perfect for people like me. There's a lot of unusual and creative dishes (I especially loved the pork belly and the flavor of the shirataki with ponzu), the staff are super friendly and the place is bustling. A couple of downsides - it may be little overpriced for what is served and if you're after authentic Korean food, I suspect you'll be disappointed. I'd also recommend getting a reservation - to get the particular ambience they are after, the restaurant is packed and can feel a little cramped especially early evening on a Friday or Saturday night.

Not exactly sure why this place scores such high reviews. Ambiance is nice and servers friendly, but the food is nothing special. Actually, the Fish Sando is a downright insult - a slider-sized fish sandwich and a few leaves of baby lettuce for $13. Gamja fries were okay, but not great. Bottom line, I'd say don't bother with Namu Gaji. There are plenty of truly good restaurants in the vicinity.

Cozy Korean restaurant run by three Korean American brothers. All the staff here are warm and attentive. The food is bomb. We had the dumpling and salmon small plates, as well as the stonepot for our main. Everything was delicious and filled with rich flavors and textures. Can't wait to go back to this place. BONUS: If you don't get desert here, Bi-Rite icecream is right nextdoor...
