Reviewed 14 June 2014 via mobile

Noodles were ok, service a bit messy at the entrance and waiters are not patient. When I asked for chilli padi, which is usually FOC at restaurant, they asked me to pay SGD0.50 for that! !! This is the FIRST restaurant in Singapore that I ever encountered that I need to pay for chilli padi!!!

Will not go back again!

Jika Anda ingin mampir ke tempat ini, bersiap-siaplah untuk antri panjang, karena tempat ini sangatlah ramai, terutama pada jam-jam makan malam.

Meskipun antri, pelayanannya cukup cepat dan ramah. Saya dan teman saya memesan Chicken Pho Noodle soup with extra Pork meatballs dan mince meat pork meatballs spicy dry noodle.
Keduanya datang dalam porsi yang cukup besar dan panas...rasanya enak, mi pho dan instant noodle nya pas, bumbunya sedikit kurang berasa asin buat kami, tapi mereka menyediakan kecap asin dan hoisin sauce di atas meja. Pork meatballsnya benar-benar pork!

Suasana restaurannya sangat ramai, seatingnya padat dan orang-orang datang dan pergi begitu cepat, jadi terasa kurang menikmati hidangannya.

Having been ripped off at the high end of the market (SGD 500 for an omakase dinner at Tatsuya's!!), I thought I'd average down by having a meal at a cheap place. I was lured by the long lines, and thought Nam Nam must be good if it's so popular. The pho is indeed pretty good, although the beef brisket is sliced too thick - they're almost cubes! I then realized that it's on purpose (in order to save on labor cost), because efficiency, or rather: greed, runs this place. They charge extra for what would normally be offered with pho at any restaurant in America or Vietnam - 50 cents for chilli padi, SGD 1.50 for herbs and bean sprouts. Vietnamese salad is usually served with prawn crackers; here, the latter cost an extra SGD 3.90 on top of the SHD 5.90 for the salad! What you think is cheap is actually not, because these people are sharp (or shark?) businessmen!

This is the early or late lunch place as there is always a line by 11:45 at Raffles City Basement location. Pho to order (brisket, balls and tendons) prawn rolls and salads. Hits the spot for quick lunch!
Seating is crowded and not terribly comfortable so quick turnover!
Tucked in the back are a few better tables, quiet and more comfy but hard to get one!

The food is pretty good for a noisy, crowed, elbow-touching restaurant. You order self service and the food is brought out quickly to your table. The Pho with chicken was delicious, served piping hot with flavorful broth, plenty of noodles and meat. A few of the other dishes were not as successful. All in all, not bad.
