At NAMA, aside from constantly creating delicious raw food goodies for you, we have some guiding principles that underpin everything we do to promote our own, individual philosophy within the existing raw food philosophy.
Here are the six pillars of that, which we live by, day by day:
Our sole aim is promote wellbeing through nutrition’. We believe in harnessing the power of natural food to create balanced, nourishing, life-enriching dishes that help you to attain greater levels of health, in both body and mind.
It’s about listening and responding to what your body needs and what it’s calling for! Above all, we are passionate food and health lovers, and this feeds into everything we do at NAMA.
At NAMA, we feel that not only should food taste and smell incredible, it should look amazing too. Eating good, healthy food should be a multisensory experience. We value the presentation of our dishes – their aesthetic – as much as their taste. We aim to create food that is instantly Instagrammable!
The restaurant itself is designed to be a light, bright, airy space, as we feel the interior should reflect the purity of the food.
Raw food works best, in terms of offering maximum health benefits, when the ingredients used are as fresh as can be. We get these ingredients in, daily, from our reputable suppliers.
All of our food is handmade, on the premises, and we never make big batches of food in advance, to serve later in the week.
We believe in choice. We believe in blowing away the common misconception that a raw, vegan diet is limited.
For example, at NAMA you have the choice of coconut, almond, rice, hemp, or soya milk in your tea or coffee.
We aim to show you, with our creative collection of dishes, that we are anything but simple ‘crudites and dips’. Pizzas, pastas, sandwiches, Pad Thai, umpteen desserts and drinks – that’s what NAMA is all about.
We don’t just eat and serve raw food, we live and breathe the ethos of a sustainable raw food lifestyle.
Everything at NAMA adheres to the raw philosophy. All of our packaging is biodegradable, and the cleaning products we use are eco-friendly. And, as we make everything fresh, we have minimal waste as it runs out through the day.
Yes, our actual restaurant is in one spot, but we’re all about the wider community that we serve. We want anyone and everyone to feel comfortable at NAMA; families (we have baby changing facilities), singles, groups, larger parties.
Our staff are carefully selected so that their philosophy mirrors our own, and they are passionate and enthusiastic in sharing the benefits of a healthy lifestyle with the community.
We’re also incredibly active in engaging with our online community, posting on Facebook and Twitter – little snippets of information, advice, or recipes – and recommending others who share our ethos.
