MAKE A RESERVATION
Reservations can be sat at the chefs counter, window counter, communal table, or dining tables, based on availability. In your reservation notes, please specify if a dining table is preferred and we will do our best to accomodate.
*We accept reservations of up to 5 guests on a limited basis due to the small size of our restaurant in order to also accomodate "walk-ins." If you do not find the right time that works for you, do not be discouraged to "walk-in." Our host will be sure to take care of you.
**We only seat complete parties up to 15 minutes past your reservation time. Please call us at 415-431-namu if any members of your party will be running late.

Group dining for parties of 6 or more guests is the best way to enjoy a family-style dinner at Namu Gaji. We course, pace, and portion your custom dinner to your needs.

Large Parties Walk-ins
We accommodate walk-ins of up to 5 guests. Parties of 6 or more guests are welcome to walk-in as well; however, due to the size of our restaurant, availability is very limited for larger parties and requires a $40 per person food + beverage minimum. The minimum excludes parties that dine during Happy Hour (5pm-6:30pm, Tues-Sun) and vacate by 6:30pm. Once there is a wait, we can only add parties of up to 5 people on the texting wait list app (see FAQ's for wait list details).
