    Would love to give 5 stars next visit! Love this place!! Amazing vegan options and great for all the omnivores too! The only reason for not 5 stars all around is that they added parmesan to my food by mistake. They were of course ready to replace it asap, but I didn't want the food wasted so I just picked it off. The only thing that bugged me though is they kept trying to say it was their Daiya vegan cheese on top, but no I tried it (unfortunately) and it was 100% real parmesan. Would love if Daiya was that good but they're not lol. Also the service was just okay, lovely server, but she disappeared half way through our meal and no one seemed to take care of us after that. The vegan version of the truffle mushroom benny is to die for!!! Yum!!! Will be going back hopefully very soon :).

    It was nice we didn’t have to wait for a table and the service was excellent. The menu was very interesting - I wanted to try several things so it was hard to decide. The pancakes and truffle breakfast bowl were nicely executed. The value was good. I’ll go back.

    Food was fabulous but we were not served for atleast 10-15 mins until we asked a server if we could order. Put in our coffee order and the server then again forgot and we had to wait another 10 mins but other than the wait time food and attitude of servers was pleasant.

    This place is amazing! The food, the services, the atmosphere... I drove by this place many times and thought this is just a typical cafe. I was completely wrong. I went there first to try out the YYC vegan week feature dish. It was so good. The East Indian and western fusion went so well. My boyfriend ordered a masala chicken on waffle. Again, it was very good. So I asked if they can make a vegetarian version. I went there this week and tried the marsala paneer on waffle. It's so good. I definitely will go back again to try out all other vegetarian dishes on the menu.

    I LOVED IT! I was so happy to see so many vegan options on the menu! It was so hard to choose what to have for brunch. I went with the Field Bowl and it was DELICIOUS. I want to try the vegan french toast next! I have already recommended Namo to a couple of my other friends. I WILL DEFINTELTY BE BACK. Also, the service was AMAZING. Thank you!

    Amazing food at this little gem of a restaurant. The chef is truly gifted and you can tell he puts much care into every dish. We had an appetizer of Indian dosa with some curried meat on top. The dosa was a little crisp and SO delicious, plus we had a hummus and naan dip as an appetizer and that was very good too. Our main dishes were very tasty. Between the four of us we had beef bolognese, eggplant parma bowl, fish and a mussel dish in coconut broth. I love the meals here because the chef will totally cater to me or my friends being low carb, gluten free, vegan or whatever. We had carrot cake with pistachio ice cream (kulfi) for dessert. The cake was warm and the ice cream was made by the chef. YUM! I will definitely be going back.

    Namo Bistro is an inviting little spot with an interesting menu and friendly staff. The food is always delicious. They are careful to confirm about vegan/vegetarian preferences, and are excited to modify dishes as needed. The chef is passionate about his menu. We are looking forward to Namo being open for dinner again!

    Wow! Excellent food, service. Sunday Brunch. Offer vegan, vegetarian, regular options. Lots of interesting combinations. Servers very pleasant, friendly, helpful and informative. Willing to accommodate any allergy and food sensitivities. I had a bennie with guacamole, drizzle of tomato sauce, twisted potato fries, etc - fantastic! Very tasty. Loved large sections of fresh fruit. Free range chickens so poached eggs delicious. My friend had the bacon, mushroom,etc salad with tater tots which she said was excellent but found the tots salty. Thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. We'll be back. Small (50 seats), bustling, energetic, happy place.

    Namo was great, a great menu with options for indulgements, healthy eaters, vegetarian, vegan and kids! Excellent service! It was a cold day but surprised it wasn’t busier. A great option in the Renfrew/Bridgeland area for brunch/breakfast especially if you don’t want to deal with lines AND make a reservation!

    Our meal was delicious, we all had the 2 egg breakfast with bacon/sausage, potatoes and toast. My friends loved the potatoes, me not so much. The cup of tea I had was the best mint tea ever (pricey though) and my friends thought the coffee was excellent. One of my biggest complaints just about everywhere I order a breakfast dish is no fruit, same complaint here. This restaurant is perfect for those who follow a plant-based diet, as there are a lot of options. Very attentive (not annoying) and gracious service.

    Fantastic food, great service and unique menu items. I was sad when OEB moved out of it's Edmonton Trail location, but little did I know a new restaurant was going to take its place. Nestled in this cozy spot is Namo Cafe & Bistro. Chef Ashish serves high quality, tasty food that is as creative and filled with as much love as the previous inhabitant. There must be something about this spot. Great food haunts 824 Edmonton Trail, just like a friendly ghost. Better get in there before the line-ups are down the block. I know I'll be back.

    So glad to see this little gem take the place of the original OEB on Edmonton Trail. Ash and Mira run the place and have just begun to offer dinner. Their breakfast/brunch menu has been available for a while. Dinner was pleasant with very friendly service. The menu covers a variety of cuisines from an Indian Thali to several kinds of Bao - delicious - to a burger and lots of vegetarian options. Several nice wines by the glass were appreciated. Must try the brunch next time. I can see this becoming our "go to" place in the future.

    Went for brunch with a girlfriend to celebrate her 30th birthday. We enjoyed a matcha latte each which was deliciously warm and not overly sweet. My friend had the pork ramen (the social of the day) and I ordered the Beyond Benny featuring the Beyond Meat vegan patty. Both of us were extremely satisfied with our choice of food! The chef surprised my friend with two lovely raspberry macaroons with fresh raspberries and a strawberry on the side with Happy Birthday written in chocolate. It was a wonderful touch! Will definitely be back to try out more options from the menu!
