While I like Thai food and Vietnamese food, I’m not a big fan of restaurants serving different cuisines as I’m a firm believer that they should specialize. Having said that, Nahm does offer a very filling and reasonably priced set lunch which includes a salad and a main for under $100. Admittedly though, there are better Thai and Vietnamese restaurants around.
Green papaya and green mango salad
Enjoyed this cool and refreshing salad. The papaya and mango were fresh and went well with the herbs and acidity.
Lemongrass Thai egg noodle with grilled porkneck and basil salad
When I first saw this, it looked pretty interesting for a salad and the portion was huge. The porkneck was cooked pretty nicely, but the egg noodles and rest of the salad was only ok.
Pan-fried fillet of Sole in yellow curry with jasmine rice
If you didn’t know already, I love my fish and even more so with curry. Happily, this one did not disappoint either! The dish itself looks pretty plain (in fact, pretty sloppy too), but taste wise, the Sole was cooked nicely and remained juicy. The curry and fish also complemented the rice well.
Pad Thai noodles with prawn and squid
First thing is that it has squid so clearly, I did not order this. I hate squid. But I’m not being biased when I say that this was a below average Pad Thai. It was lacking in egg and also the peanut crunch, and just didn’t taste all that good. EVEN without the squid!
Overall, the food is good for a lunch set, but I doubt I would eat here for dinner when there are other better Thai and Vietnamese options.
