Tried the bulgogi with the ban-chan, which was a nice selection of 5 side items (kimchee, broccoli, etc). It came out piping hot, in what I’d call a “lava rock bowl.” There was significantly less meat than I expected, which was disappointing. Overall, it tasted pretty good. Service slowly warmed up during the meal. I spent about seventeen dollars for... More

I had not been to Nam Kang in several years. The food there was never very good and it was always a little pricey for what you got but at least the ban chan used to be pretty good. Well, now both the ban chan and the other food are on the minus side of mediocre. The waitress was the... More

I keep coming back again and again especially because this place offers great options for hearty vegetarian food. The scallion pancake is really excellent. The Bi bim bap with tofu is very filling. Another plus is that they are open late. I also have brought my family members from out of town who have never had Korean food and they... More

I have to admit, I am not an aficionado of Korean food. I'm also vegetarian, so the cuisine doesn't always have a lot to offer. That said, I am hooked on Nam Kang's banchan bowls. There may not be a lot there, but they are so tasty and flavorful they're usually my favorite part of the meal. You do get... More

I moved in across the street from this sketchy-looking place and work nights. The moment I locked eyes with the shadowy basement entry stairs, I knew it was only a matter of time before I ran out of Larabars and ended up down there for a desperate middle-of-the-night solo lunch. On that fated night, the terror of what I was... More

It is hard to find authentic Asian food in America unless you know who to ask and where to go. Talking to a local bartender, he led my friends and I to our new favorite, must stop place in Baltimore. We visited the restaurant very late after a night out. Most people would walk away being dropped off in "the... More

Nam Kang, is an unassuming basement restaurant that is exactly the home-cooked, authentic flavor Korean, Japanese, and Chinese spot you've been looking for. Forget about the generic "American" Asian restaurants that litter the Baltimore area and visit Nam Kang to get fresh flavors, homemade noodles, and a wonderful assortment of kimchi/banchan. Here's what we ordered: - Sae Woo Pa Jun... More

This restaurant is on my list of favorites; prices are fair, and the food is very good. I like the lunch menu; my favorite dish is beef with vegetables on a hot stone pot. Very good chewy rice at the bottom of the pot. The service is average, sometimes English is limited depending on the server, but often prompt, and... More

Nam Kang is a pretty average Korean restaurant, a little pricier than its competitors, but also less busy. There's ample seating in the restaurant, but not sufficient parking outside. The jajangmyun is decent. It can't compare to its Ellicott City/Catonsville counterparts, but it's certainly a win in Baltimore. The tangsooyook can be better. It's not as crispy or fresh as...

I came here with a friend last week late night and had an amazing experience. It might have been the best korean restaurant I've been to in the U.S. - definitely right up there with all the korean places i've been to growing up in the north jersey/new york city area. We started with the dumplings, which were standard dumplings... More
