This food here is delicious, with a good selection of beers. The space itself is huge and I love eating in the outdoor garden! Also you can get tofu with almost anything so it's a good place for vegetarians too!

great place to grab coffee, meet up with friends, do some studying, or come get some beer during their open mic nights and just chill after work. Love their hours! 4/5 - only because food quantity and quality has decreased over time. Menu items not worth the price!

Awesome place to study or dine in! There’s tons of seating and food options! The staff was very nice and the seasonal drinks and desserts were great!

Namu has wonderful vegetarian food (among other things) and is one of my favorite places to eat. The Korean pancakes and their matcha lattes are out of this world! I wish they stayed open on the coffee side until at least 10 instead of 9 on weeknights, because my conversations have been cut short twice now, but that happening is still worth it for the amazingly delicious food!

BEST KOREAN BBQ EVER!! I absolutely love the very easy, laid back set up. Excellent atmosphere.

Nice atmosphere, friendly staff, great beer and cider selection and the spicy pork dumplings were good (could have used more spice/heat). I'll definitely go back and try other items. There were a lot of families with small children running around, I gather this is not the usual state and probably an event.

Let me tell you, this is a place that you want to go! The atmosphere and the food cannot be beat. Guys, the sauces. Do you like sauce? I am a saucey person, but even if I wasn't, I promise you that these sauces are ones you will DREAM of. 10/10 def recommend going here. You're welcome.

Awesome Korean fusion in Durham. This place is a go to if we can't decide what to eat. Everything is delicious, and the only problem is try not to order the whole menu. Not only is the food good, they have a great beer selection. There are also several TV's throughout if you want to catch a game. Stop by for some interesting takes on the food you already love.

One of my favorite spots! The burrito bowls are on point and the atmosphere is laid back and perfect for a casual night out. Love the spicy chicken!

Delicious coffee and food, great service, and amazing atmosphere. Very unique layout with tons of space, large tables, and beautiful decor. I normally can't study in one place for too long but I was here for 9+ hours and didn't want to leave. Will definitely be returning.

One of my favorite places to visit. It's tucked away so it started off as somewhat of a hidden gem but I think the secrets out! The atmosphere is great for meeting up, for studying and reading or just to grab a bite to eat. The outdoor spaces are also worth checking out. You order at the counter and they bring your food to you (usually within 10 minutes). I almost always get a rice plate with BBQ beef and add a fried egg. I could eat here every day! Only downside is the parking. Most of it isn't paved and during peak hours you sometimes have to park down the road.

Quirky place (in a good way!) with lots of good space for working and chatting. Kind of a hip take on a coffee shop atmosphere. Did not realize it was so big inside.

This place is a lot of fun with a diverse crowd and atmosphere. You can come here to work on your computer, watch sports. Drink beer with friends or have a quiet meal. The food is great and well priced for what you get. Highly recommend. Parking is a little sketchy but seems to work out even when they are busy.

Consistently delicious. I spend more money here than I care to admit. The food is so fresh and flavorful and the employees are always incredibly friendly. I love the vibes here. Sometimes I work remotely and love coming to Namu to work inside- good ambiance and great background music. I also love enjoying their outdoor garden/patio area. Ordering online for pick up/take out is also super easy. Love this place! One of my favorite Durham spots.

Very casual, relaxed atmosphere. Order at the counter and the food is brought to your table, indoors or the outdoor courtyard. Awesome food, slightly slow service. My bimbimbap with spicy chicken was delicious, fried beef dumplings were tasty and generously filled, veggie pancakes were very good. I'll be back next week.

My wife and I have been here a few times. Food is always great and the location is awesome! Outdoor seating is legit. Indoor it's spacious and laid out very well.

Very interesting layout. There is room for studying indoors, or a great patio for meet ups. The food came out promptly, there was a lot of staff that brings the order to the table. Delicious food for a fair amount.

I visited Namu recently for their open mike night. Their beer hall has a fantastic selection of beers, so I chose a NE IPA and wandered outside to find seating. Their courtyard is GORGEOUS. Friends all reported that the Korean food was delicious. You order inside and they bring your food to your table, which makes finding and moving seats more casual than a typical restaurant -- a nice feature for such a beautiful venue. I'll be back to enjoy that courtyard.

This place is very nice and unique. It would have gotten 5 stars but the female server with the hair locks always has an attitude and NO personality at ALL! Sometimes she is even rude. She can ruin your experience if she is around for to long. But besides her everyone is extremely courteous.
