Growing up in the suburbs of Boston, the Lee Brothers—Dennis (”the chef”), Daniel (“the engineer”), and David (“the musician”)—spent many hours working at their mother's popular pan-Asian restaurant, DAH-MEE. Years later, after all three had moved one-by-one to San Francisco, they were naturally drawn to a reuniting of food and family.
Their vision was to create a dining experience in the Mission District they felt was missing in San Francisco—a comfortable and personal space, featuring mouthwatering Korean-Pan-Asian food that reaches beyond traditional culinary boundaries. Their mother taught them that a table needs three legs to stand, and that they must stick together to accomplish their dreams. Namu Gaji is their dream come true.
