We love this little store and the treats and treasures we find there. Friends and fans, please stop by often - they need our support and business!

stuff it. It's a nice store and has great food. I guess you don't like Asian foods. You don't have to. You also don't need to be nasty.

A local treasure! I've been shopping at Nak's for years. The best Asian produce and perfect sashimi (if you can cut your own).

I'm so glad to hear this, and hope that people will continue to spread the word about this little treasure in Menlo Park. We are slowly becoming more and more homogenized and less and less
interesting, which makes stores like Nak's more important than ever. Even if you don't shop there, ask your middle schooler if he's ever stopped in to buy Pocky and Ramune!

I was very sorry to hear Roger Reynolds closed, and now with the possibility of losing Naks it would be a double loss to our wonderful community. Naks does provide fresh produce, asian and dutch delights! It really is convenient to have this little mom & pop store!

Fun little store. Try their thing sliced beef. It makes great sukiyaki. Also the fresh tofu.

Naks is the best!!! I love shopping there for all of my hot and sour soup items and the fresh sashimi! YUM! So happy they are staying open.
