We were driving from Italy to Netherlands and decided to stop somewhere for a meal. With a little bit of searching Namu came up as a top suggestion. After calling they reserved a table for us outside and even though it took us nearly 3 hours to reach Dortmund the table was there. The food and service was great. I... More

Really authentic food at a beautiful place. I ordered bibimbap and it was excellent! The egg was fried (usually they serve it raw) but I guess you can have it the authentic way as well. I can highly recommend this place if you want to try something new. Perfect for veggies as well :)

It was a true surprise for a random evening in Dortmund - everything we ordered for starters was tasting fantastic (dumplings, rice rolls, spicy kimchi soup). When we though we cannot eat anymore, the main arrived - some massive beef dish. I don't know how it was physically possible, but we devoured it all and did not even feel stuffed... More

Variety of food is enough for you to experience Korean cuisine in Germany :). Not really spacious but cozy, friendly place to ones who prefer close talk and meeting.

We have visited it many times, and always leave fully satisfied with the food's quality and the service. Prices are reasonable. I highly recommend it.

We arrived in Dortmund knowing that we were going to check out this restaurant. I was impressed by the layout of the restaurant, the friendly staff and have to admit as a lover of the BIBIMBAP - it met my standards (Instagram SimplySimon30 for pics). If you like Korean, this is the place for you - and yes it was... More

I didn't really expect to find an authentic Korean restaurant in Dortmund (or maybe even the whole of NRW) but I was positively surprised by when I visited Namu for the first time and have been back twice. It seems like the restaurant is family-run and what I like most is that you don't only get the standard-type cuisine such... More

Bibimbap is the Thursday lunch special. I would come here every Thursday for lunch if I could. Sehr lecker! I have been for dinner as well, and although more expensive than lunch, it was equally as good, and the soup that comes with dinner was lovely. Always great service. Good atmosphere. Nice to sit outside on warm nights.

Thank KDortmund
