About

This very smart venue brings freshness, lightness, and real pleasure to the creation and enjoyment of its east-meets-west menu. The decor is super-now, more Manhattan than West End, with cool creamy walls, chocolate-leather cubes, and design-statement high-backed chairs. The mixologists know their stuff - we are still working our way down from the top of the cocktail menu and expect to meet a friend working her way up from the bottom sometime next year. No complaints so far, and much praise for Nama's Mary. The food employs only the freshest of ingredients, and cooking methods favour steaming and grilling, so foodies can indulge without guilt. Try the sushi or the gyoza dumplings to start, then carry on with the buffalo steak with wasabi mash and crispy basil carrot. Puds include lime and coconut brulee. Those of the vegetarian persuasion will be happy here that's for sure. During summer you can dine alfresco at this lovely bar.

Nama Bar is so stylish, so fun, so buzzing, you'd be hard-pressed to find a better venue for your birthday, launch, or smart corporate do. The dining section, by the bar is kitted out in the latest style, and the pan-Asian influences of the menu suit the zeitgeist perfectly. Dine with your group right in the thick of things, or hire the basement bar for drinks and nibbles (up to 70 standing). The equally smart Shaftesbury Room will seat up to 16, while the Main Bar is the only place for a really big do, accommodating up to 120 standing. There are good facilities for business presentations, and a dj and dance floor for fun. The menu includes terrific sushi, a yummy bento box, so your guests can sample lots of things, chicken satay burger, or tofu with veggies, and fruity daquiris for pud. A great find.
