what the critics say


Zoe Williams - 2/5

Tuesday, March 12, 2013 - The squid wasn't too chewy, but it didn't have that beautiful texture that one associates with true freshness – where it feels very resistant on first bite, then gives way deliciously as you chew it. These tasted more like a starter from a moderately good Thai takeaway...Clearly, Naamyaa (the word means pot) is trying for an informal, all-day eating experience. But I wonder why Alan Yau wants to add to a market so crowded by his own creations (Wagamama, Busaba Eathai) without something more exciting to bring to the table.

The Independent

John Walsh - 7/15

Saturday, March 09, 2013 - It was a weird meal. The first half was so promising, the second so disastrous – as if the chap who understands about cooking simply took off at 2pm. There's something slapdash about the food that's at odds with the smartness of the décor and the service. There'll soon be a Naamyaa Café in a street near you, apparently. Try it by all means, for the spectacle – but it might be wise to leave soon after the ribs.
