Occupying the space formerly taken up by Sao Mai Kitchen, Nom Mee offers a wide range of Vietnamese and Chinese dishes. Some of their dishes can be ordered as small or large size serving. The small size should be sufficient for most people.

One of the rice dishes that can be ordered, the Chargrilled Pork Chop had succulent flesh with a good amount of savoury flavour. While not mentioned on the menu description, the dish also had some slices of roast pork with crisp crackling. Along with pickled vegetables and cucumber slices, dipping sauce was also provided for dipping the pork in to give extra flavour.

The portion size of their Chicken Omelette was quite generous and the omelette had the light and fluffy texture that we expected. The slices of chicken were cooked just right and the inclusion of bean sprouts added a bit of crunch to the dish. Topping the omelette was some tasty savoury Chinese gravy to alleviate the dryness of the omelette.

Using the clear tapioca noodles known as Hu Tieu, the noodles in their Sliced Pork & Prawn Vietnamese Thick Noodle Soup were cooked al dente and the broth subtly enhanced its flavour. The prawns were cooked perfectly but we thought there could have been a few more slices of pork to make the dish more enjoyable. Served alongside the soup was chilli to add some spice and a lemon wedge if you like the soup to be tangier.

Should you choose to order their dishes for takeaway, complimentary prawn crackers are given if your order exceeds $40. The restaurant has a nice causal ambience and off-street parking is conveniently located in the carpark behind the restaurant.
