Food is lovely but the service is a bit slow, probably short of staff!! The price is slightly higher, compared to the portion of the food.
However, we ordered some tequilas, the tasting and knowledge explanation is very profession, me and my friends enjoy a lot.

food and drinks were really good but service sucked, originally sat at bar while we waited for our table to be freed up, but had to ask to be seated 30 mins later because we were not taken through. Asked for more drinks on 3 separate occasions, had to follow them up with the same person who looked clueless that we ever asked. Food and environment was fine, just really poor service.

Great place and great food, really enjoyed it.

The waiter was working hard as he was the only wait staff member on the night - he did a really good job managing people coming in, taking orders, making drinks, serving food and arranging bills and payment. If they were to have more guests the restaurant should probably have additional staff on the floor

The food was just amazing! Every dish ordered was excellent.
Cocktails were a bit watered down.
Food took a while to arrive as there was only one waiter attending the whole restaurant as well as preparing cocktails at the bar. He was super friendly though.
Great ambiance.

Music was quite loud and when diners sat two tables away we could hear there conversations easily as they were talking over the music.
Music was good though, just loud.
Food was amazing.
Drinks are pricey spent more on six drinks than the food.

Seated us at the bar and service was awful. We did not stay for long. They took over 20 mins to ask for our first drink and a further long wait to receive the drinks

Great little local Mexican option in Grev St. Excellent tacos & quesadillas + love their chipotle artichokes. Not to mention the endless Mezcal options & great margaritas.

I know it’s a bit weird with restrictions but we saw the staff turn away over 50 guests due to “being fully booked” we were the only ones inside for the entire time of our booking. They could have easily taken people for a quick pre dinner drink as it seems their bookings were after 7:30pm. Food and drinks were good but felt like the margarita was watered down. The staff were nice enough but no leadership or conversation offered.

Food, drinks and service were great! Especially loved the frozen margarita pie.

The only concern was that the restaurant was so warm it made it a little difficult to enjoy. Even after another guest asked to turn the aircon on it didn’t really cool down.

Fantastic place if you miss Latin American food, some quality dishes with great flavours and nothing so fancy it's unrecognisable. Cocktails were beautiful, as was the rum I tried. The only negative I could say is that the chilaquiles were just nachos rather than fried tortillas in sauce and a little dry. The quesadillas and tacos were beautiful, and my friends loved the choripan. Please try this place, we need more quality Latin food like this.

Last little note, the empanadas can be Chilean or Colombian and vary but it's not clear how, so will definitely try to catch the Chilean ones sometime. Might have to call ahead to know when though.

Also just FYI the website is broken. The links take you to all the wrong places and trying to book through it or look at drinks will drive you mad. Hopefully the owners can have this fixed.

Loved our dinner at this restaurant; the ambience was wonderful. Good mood lighting, great salsa music and only a few other people dining so it was great for a date night. Highlights were the Chicken Arepas (honestly one of the best I've ever had, was perfectly crisp on the outside and soft on the inside) and the Frozen Margarita Pie (just get it, trust me). The waiter was attentive without being overbearing and the whole vibe was very chill. Will definitely be back!

After having a wonderful experience across the street at White Oak Saloon, Casa Nom was a huge letdown. We have been wanting to try it out for ages seeing the fancy beautiful cocktail images on their Instagram. Reality hardly matched up when I asked for 3 drinks from Instagram and none were available. The $20 cocktails we received were poorly presented and not drinkable. I thought the bartender was going to rectify the situation as she asked me what was wrong and what I usually like to drink, instead, she just walked off to talk to other customers and did not even offer to fix or make us new drinks. Never returning.
