This was only my second visit to Nomad - the first was for drinks only.

But this second visit -I will add to my friend's review that the food received was really not great. We indicated that we were not in a hurry, but after 45 minutes of not receiving food, it was a bit worrying. We then advised the waiter to bring the wings in the meanwhile as we were hungry. The wings were "ok" but really not the best we've tasted. We then received the ribs (1 round only although bottomless), but OMG, it was tasteless - as if it was just boiled - no seasoning and just a slap of sauce on after.

Even though the owner came over and explained the issue he had with his supplies, due to his night before, and it being the first Saturday of the promo, one should be prepared when offering such a promo. At the same time, this is not the first time they are selling ribs - so if this is the taste all the time, then I would not recommend the ribs.

Besides the food issue, there was a shortage of waiting staff - and the barman, Angelo, jumped in and his service was really great. We then had to endure to noise from a table of group of patrons who were excessively loud, which was a little discomforting to other patrons, not just us. Certainly the owner/manager should've said something sooner to these patrons, and not wait for us as other patrons to complain.

The bistro itself also lends itself to being a little "unclean", which could be from the night before's happening. There was slight stench in the air, but we shifted tables closer to the door and windows, which helped. Could do with a steam clean just to freshen it up a little.

I commend the owner for the food specials that are being run, but the food should still be of enjoyable quality and taste.

Hi Ian,

First of all thank you for visiting NOMAD.

Thank you for your constructive feedback! We will take into account the details mentioned above & try to incorporate this into our procedures before the next round of specials are run especially over long weekends. We would certainly like if you would give our Ribs special a 2nd try, we are very known for the same! Thank you for visiting again.

Regards
Team NOMAD
