Australian | Melbourne CBD, Inner City

Set menu for larger groups - superb. Tasty pumpkin, potatoes and steak were incredible. Great ambiance and atmosphere and well priced. Service really let the experience down unfortunately-was the only thing to not make it 10/10. Pushed through to take plates, asked to be passed majority, couldn’t get anyone’s attention when required and had to ask for the bill 4 times and just not really that happy to be there. Will go back for food but won’t expcet much on service. More

We had a wonderful experience and were delighted that Om Nom lived up to all the reviews. The cocktail were spectacular and we had the “feedme” menu which gave us a sample of everything that Om Nom offers. I can honestly say it was the best dining experience I have ever had. Loved it. More
