Om Nom at the Adelphi Hotel in the Melbourne is a stylish and contemporary restaurant and bar that specializes in delectable bites and gourmet desserts, all of which achieve their goal in delighting the senses. Popular items from Om Nom's grazing menu include the flat iron steak with caramelized soy sauce, the fried goat's cheese with sage, honey and toasted almonds, the seared scallops with miso emulsion and dashi jelly and the slow-cooked lamb cannoli with tabbouleh and tzatziki foam, all of which are tapas-style. Daily breakfast is just as mouth-watering, with plates including the toasted banana bread with bacon, maple syrup and mascarpone and the savory waffle with prosciutto, gruyere cheese, anchovy and hollandaise sauce.

Try to save room for Om Nom's desserts, which are crafted by executive pastry chef Jo Ward. The irresistible Om Nom choc-nut-bomb chocolate parfait with chewy peanut caramel is a top choice.

It’s possible my expectations were too high. We loved our experience here and thoroughly enjoyed the savory dish. We were disappointed with the sweets unfortunately.

The staff were wonderful. Informative and attentive.

The room was very dark but we became accustomed to the lighting.

The cocktails were delicious and theatrical.

A fun day but not a marvelous day.

Om Nom is a magic experience. The ambience is beautiful, the food is superb, and the service outstanding. It was my second visit, and my friends are keen to go back very soon after their first time.
We felt indulged and had a wonderful experience. Thank you isn't sufficient.

Creative dessert menu. The drink was okay only, had better drinks elsewhere.
The manager didn't let us used our Zomato gold, apparently there was a maximum of two gold members per table. It was not stated in the term and condition on our Zomato gold app, we were only informed at payment, really disappointing!

I can't remember the name of the dessert, but the passion fruit/basil one was amazing! I never would have guessed those flavours worked together so well. We also had the Strawberry Kisses (I think) and unfortunately that fell a bit flat as we had the passion fruit/basil one first so it was hard to compete with.

Excited to taste Om Nom, my wife and presented ourselves before the time alloted and handed over my Birthday voucher. We were to be seated at the table next to the cash register. As I began to left my arms to eat I was regulaly bumped by customers and staff. As it became busy and more cramped,the frequently it happened. So really spoilt the night. However the food and drink made it bearable.

Food and desserts were outstanding. Would I recommend, probably not. Service was lacklustre and not that great. Maybe because it was a midday on a Sunday, who knows. Just my opinion.

Food and cocktails were incredible! Definitely an experience I recommend to anyone. We were very disappointed by the staff and service they gave during our visit. We felt rushed and felt staff were quite rude and blunt. Considering the cost of food I definitely expect a higher level of service. We also witnessed what looked like the manager and front of house staff having an argument on the floor which was uncomfortable.

Wow, what a trip down the rabbit hole. I felt a little like Alice from Alice in wonderland. The deserts were amazing, tasty and mind bending. I'd go back for another round.

Om Nom's is our go to place for very special occasions. This one was a 60th birthday.
Our Maitre De was outstanding, service was great, food positively delectable, and the cocktails...well, for anyone who has been there I need say no more.
A wonderful evening.

Have been there a few times before and have LOVED it, so much so, we organized a lovely evening with friends (8 people). We were forced into having the “Feed Me” option, meaning we had no choice of the food coming out. We left, and our friends said they’d not go back, that it wasn’t worth the money (we covered half the bill so they didn’t know how much it was) because they didn’t like the food options given. Really disappointed that we didn’t have the choice. I don’t know if we’ll go back.

Unfortunately upon our arrival Maître d’ was abrupt to put it politely, seeming uninterested in our presence.
The food was very good, although we were advised to order more than we needed, meaning the table didn’t have enough space for all the plates!

We had big expectations and have wanted to try your feed me option for a long time. To say it was disappointing is an understatement. We walked out not very impressed with any of the courses -lacking in flavour and very small portions.

I went there with my hubby for his 30 th birthday
And I pre booked and requested dessert to make sth special and write 30th happy birthday to him but they totally forgot about it and the chair was so uncomfortable as I’m about 36 weeks pregnant 🤰
Food were just average but drink and dessert were well presented!

The food was good as always but the service was not great. We waited a long time to get our plates cleared after our first course and then he took half and forgot to come back for the rest. We were not asked if we wanted another drink and had to flag someone down to try to get another drink. They were busy but i was disappointed in the service. The food will get me back there and I hope some extra training of staff will improve the service.

Everybody’s experience is different. We thought with what we had was not value for money. We went there on other people’s experiences. Quite dark inside and hard to see. If we ordered something else maybe the whole experience would be different.

The food was DELICIOUS! (Would have loved bigger sizes of the savoury dishes because they were so beautiful); but the dessert dishes were very generous. We still can’t believe we had four desserts! And the cocktails were incredible! Loved our night out.

After all the hype, we were bitterly disappointed to have the de gust and not be wowed! I guess our expectations after hearing so much about it wasn't met. The staff seemed unexcited and we were sitting close to the bar with mounting dishes with little being done about it, not something we though was good practice. My wife and I have had much better desserts at lesser places without the fanfare, if it's hyped up then deliver. Flavours were not there, textures were not up to our standard and the whole ambience was a disappointing. We came all the way from interstate to try, not again sorry. Just a short visit to Burch & Purchase will nail anything here.
