The Naam Restaurant – Vancouver, BC

By shokutsu on May 24, 2009 - 7:46pm

To begin, a little history and background on Naam. It proclaims to be vegetarian. Reporters have noted it to be one of the oldest natural foods restaurants in the city. It is open 24/7, everyday except for Christmas Day. And although the sample size is smaller, I’ve found that each time I’ve dined in there is always a lineup out the door especially at mid-day or on weekend brunch.

Once you are able to get a table, the overworked (and I think outnumbered) wait staff might come to your table in a timely manner. And I’m not saying that to be fescious. They truly are overwhelmed by the crowds, and given the laid back nature of this restaurant (heck, it has its roots in Vancouver’s hippie culture after all), diners are forewarned not to expect quick, attentive service or responses to any of your usual dining needs.
