THE NAME

What is numnum?

num-num (plural num-nums) is (childish) Tasty food.
'The Party' is a 1968 American comedy film directed by Blake Edwards and starring Peter Sellers and Claudine Longet. The film has very loose structure, and essentially serves as a series of set pieces for Sellers's improvisational comedy talents.
In one of the scenes, Seller's character - an Indian actor called Bakshi is mistakenly invited to a Hollywood party. Bakshi feeds a caged macaw food from a container marked "Birdie Num Num" an drops the food on the floor.

At numnum, we offer both restaurant, take-away and catering services for all occasions.

Our logo is colourful and inviting, designed via an international competition and sends out our culinary message, loud an clear:

We welcome everyone to our restaurant, for good food and a great time.
