The service wasn't a standard I expected. We were seated 15 mins late within a 2hr strict seating high tea. We went for bottomless sparkling but didn't get our first glass until 20 mins in. My glass was left empty twice during that time. It's not worth the money. Shane given the food is fantastic.

This place is delicious! I wasn't a fan of the desserts with alcohol for the high tea. A bit too strong, something berrylious would be amazing! but overall it was great! loved the savoury menu for high tea, would be great to have an interesting finger sandwich. scones would be amazing too to start of with! but it was AMAZING! I loved it all!

Service was poor. We sat for 10 minutes without a menu. We were the only ones there. The waitress just was not interested. The waffles were dry. A really underwhelming experience which was a shame because we booked brunch for a special occasion.

Service was horrible, all they wanted was for us to know how we were taking too long and how long our table was booked for. At that point, when we actually wanted to order, no one wanted to serve us and keept serving other tables who already had their food. Food was average and nothing very special beside the desert which were unique. Would not go ever again...

What a fabulous evening! The food and cocktails were superb, and our waitress was delightful with fantastic service. Great options for gluten and dairy free also which was helpful. The only thing that let the night down was the bar service, it was very slow getting drinks throughout the meal (even though the bar wasn’t crowded) however once we spoke to our waitress she rectified this very promptly. Overall a fantastic night out and would highly recommend it to others.

The service and ambience was fantastic. However, the value for money of the high tea was not. We left feeling rather unsatisfied. The inventiveness of what we at is commendable, but the value for the money of what we received was not. Thus I probably will not be visiting again, nor will I be recommending this place to others.

We had a lovely afternoon at Om Nom for afternoon tea to celebrate my birthday. The service was attentive without being so nvasive & the waiters & waitresses did all they could to make it a fabulous experience.
As one of our party was too unwell to come we will be back to share the same experience with her.

The service was attentive without being intrusive. The food was so visually engaging; the placement, colours, shapes and attention to detail, it was as if you had been presented with a piece of food art. Each small portion was unique and sufficient, you didn't feel overwhelmed from all the offerings after eating. The flavours and textures were such contrasts, my favourite was the Parmesan pannacotta, smooth sharp and crunch! It was lovely to find out that there will be a new menu in two weeks- can't wait to return

Wow! Where do I start? My partner and I dined at Om Nom on Friday 11th January 2019. We opted for the 'Feed me' which was 5 savoury plates and 4 sweet plates. The savoury plates were all a great combination of flavour, texture and visual appeal. Some of the highlights were the beautifully fresh oysters, crispy and delicious pork belly salad, and the tender melt-in-your mouth beef cheek. Then we were welcomed into Om Nom's dessert world, and we were not disappointed! The first two plates were 'fruit' desserts. The strawberry and cream dessert was a masterpiece in visual appearance as well as taste, texture and smell. We then were given the 'chocolate' desserts. We received a traditional Cuban cigar box where inside we would find a smoked chocolate cigar. Wow!! I have never seen anything like this and it's no surprise that this dish is so popular at Om Nom. All of the food we were served was presented immaculately and with great professionalism by the staff who also took the time to explain the components of each dish. It was truly a remarkable experience and I haven't even mention the spectacular cocktails. A sex on the beach that is literally served as a beach. We will definitely be dining here again and encourage anyone reading this review to go and try it as well. Thank you Om Nom!

The place has an awesome atmosphere and the people that work there actually love doing so which is good to see.

They are informed with what the meals are about and have a charm about them that actually makes you order more than you want doing so with pleasure

The marshmallow colada wasn’t too sweet and tasted of marshmallow. Medium size dishes of scallops and belly pork salad were enough before the desserts. Sticks and stones was excellent but the peanut butter dessert was a little too sickly and out of balance

Om Nom is well known for its desserts, which is the justification for the cost for all signature desserts to be over $25. Desserts are extravagant and pieces of art. So it's somewhere you would go for special occasions unless you're rich and love desserts.
The venue is quiet and dimly lit; ambience good for a romantic date. Bookings are advised if you want to dine at popular times.
Service was good but there wee times I had to call for the wait staff's attention, even though there were many standing around.
My recommendation is to have photos available for each of the desserts. Especially since tourists and foodies love taking pictures of these pieces of art, and are just as invested in the look not just the ingredients. Pictures do not need to be printed for each menu (considering the menu changes periodically and this could get expensive). But they could at least have them posted on the Om Nom website gallery. This will help customers with their menu selection and increase customer attendances, especially to show new menu items.

Great place to discover original food. We took the discovery menu and had a pleasant surprise. Be carefull with the check, they tried to charge us two times each drink that we order and we had to argue to get the right invoice. Also, they charged us a different price that what we booked for. The service wasn't that good, we had our drink along with the second food service. The food really worth all the trouble.

We chose On Nom for their dessert as it was recommended and the restaurant did not disappoint, visually and taste the desserts were amazing. Unfortunately we were not aware they also have a dinner menu, but are happy to go back for a second visit. We did try the fries with vanilla salt and raspberry aioli which were very moorish.
Unfortunately when seated we were not given menus and waited for staff to return, they did not notice and we had to ask for some menus after quite sometime. Still a wonderful experience.

The restaurant was very modern and the desserts were creative and delicious. My only critique would be the experience was quite rushed with only a 1 hour sitting.
We were seated too close to the people next to us and this was a bit disappointing. Otherwise a wonderful experience overall.

Loved it. This isn't just somewhere to eat. We had a unique and memorable dining experience. Cocktails a little pricey considering there are so many tempting options you cant stop at one. But the desert is so exquisite and the savoury food was rich, perfectly portioned and delectable.
Yes the leaf (Salted caramel chocolate) and everything in the bowl is edible.
My tip.. Share the beef cheek (tenederrrr and delicious) and the spicy corn croquettes (didn't get a picture) so you can fit in desert.
