Dined here on the night of November 9th. Ordered chicken dumplings, lamb skewers, prawn salad, shaking beef, pork belly, beef carpaccio, garlic broccoli and tamarind soft shell crab. It was mostly delicious, with the crab, dumplings and pork belly (especially the pork belly) all getting rave reviews from our family of five. The Carpaccio was a bit average, the fusion style didn’t work quite so well with that dish. The pork belly had a lovely thick sticky sauce that the rice mopped up nicely too. Service was ok - staff were a bit slow on refreshing the bottled water, and there was some confusion over the dishes ordered initially. But they were otherwise friendly and helpful, and had service with a smile. We liked Nem, and we will go back for sure. There is plenty of competition with Asian Fusion restaurants in Parnell and Newmarket these days, and competition must be healthy because Nem, like others, all appear to be hitting a very high standard.
