Great food average service.

It's such a shame to be presented with a place we love to eat due to the awesome food, however it is let down by average service. It's not consistent and when it's not good it's really not good. We will go back but hesitate to take new people.

Lets try the new version of Nam Thai he said . .. it will be lovely he said... so off we went to Nunam with latest reincarnation of the old Nam Thai... What a let down.. This once beautiful restraurant has become a updated cafe. We opted for coffee and two salads from the underwhelming menu. Then we sat.. and... More

We went for the Banquet option where you can choose 2 'tapas 'style aperitif's, 2 entrees and 3 main dishes; we were both full after the first main and took the rest home. Food was fantastic, and even better the place is BYO. Service was very friendly and attentive. All up it cost around $130 and next we will just... More

For those who revered the outstanding food served previously at the Nham Thai and even for a few months after the change to Nunam, a return visit will prove to be very disappointing. We were a party of four having dinner on a Wednesday night. We ordered four entrées and four mains which cost around $60 per head including 2... More

Ate here with friends in April 2015. The food was exemplary. The duck pancake was a refreshing way to start our dinner; the aromatic beef shin was tender, delicious and a clear favourite. The chicken and fish curries had the perfect amount of heat and I can't fault the presentation nor the flavours. Nunam (formerly Nahm Thai) is well worth... More

Found some of it not to be traditional thai. Food was excellent though. Attentive staff. Good experience. Would go back :)

Nunam is the new name for the previous Nahm Thai. Apparently it has changed its service offerings, and decided on a new name - Nu Nam, get it, with it. The name change doesn't make sense to me - why change a brand that is well known into one which causes some confusion. I think that there must be a... More

I'd heard such great things about this restaurant..and was really looking forward to amazing food! Some dishes were tasty, particularly the Pork Hock and the Seafood Curry but overall, VERY EXPENSIVE and certainly not worth the CASH we had to pay! Also, for a restaurant that fancies itself to be a cut above the rest, you'd think they could have... More

We indulged in the $68 per head banquet on a Thursday night and the food was all very good. Miang of prawn in betel leaf, duck pancake, salmon sashimi, duck curry, chicken masaman curry and grilled prawn salad. The lone waiter did a good job of looking after the 3 tables.

Now called Nunam, but still rated by some as the best Asian Restaurant in WA. And deservedly so I think. Most dishes rivalled or came close to the best Thai I've had elsewhere, including the Nahm restaurant in Bangkok, rated as the best restaurant in Asia! The scallop in coconut and palm sugar was one of the best entrees I've... More
