These guys have been operating since Nov 17. Yum. We started with polenta chips and a plate of warmed olives. Both were perfect. Really good start. Then onto octopus carpaccio was beautiful, so full of flavour. Mains of smoked duck, lamb belly(smoked) with lamb rump and pork belly. All were outstanding with the winner being judged as the lamb. Finished with cannoli and coffee. The food and wine match was spot on but superseded by the waiting staff. They were engaging but not in your face. Overall a great food and wine experience. We will be back again and again, as I could've ordered any of the mains. A true sign of a great menu.

I have been dining at Nomad for the past few years. At times the service has not been great, but you could tell it was inexperience and was not really a bother. Last week shocking all round.menu items unavailable, inattentive staff, food off the mark, food forgotten.
Time to try some new places.

We have been going to try Nomad for so long, and Saturday was the day!

We were thrilled with the friendly face at reception and from the moment we arrived felt very relaxed. Our waitress also had a lovely smile, and and guided us professionally through the menu answering any questions we had.

Our choices were amazing, we were not disappointed. I personally chose the lamb rump, which was the best I have ever tasted, so soft, it melted in my mouth. Would love to know their secret of how it was so tender. My husband chose the Kingfish, he was delighted with his choice.

For dessert we shared the Jaffa expersso crema catalana, such wonderful flavours! Truly an excellent chef in the background, doing an amazing job!

The atmosphere in the restaurant was perfect, loved the lighting strung over the beams, really nice touch.

Thank you Nomad team for a delightful evening. We are busy sharing our special evening with our friends, who are also coming to see you soon.
We will definitely be returning.

Went there on a Friday, the atmosphere was nice and the service was top notch. I ordered the duck which was cooked beautifully and my partner had the kingfish which was again beautifully done. 5/5 for this place, will be back again. Thank you.

The chef has brought his international culinary expertise to New Zealand we are exceptionally lucky to have this talent in Tauranga. It's very rare for a restaurant 2 continue to impress the more often you visit but this is the case with Nomad. The Chipotle braised beef ribs fall off the bone and melt in your mouth accented with distinctive flavours of the Corn salsa. Words do not do this meal justice. Polenta fries with rosemary were perfect. We had first time Nomad diners in our group who were gobsmacked by their meal and a professionally trained chef who could not stop raving about the technique, flavours and beautiful presentation of all of our dishes. The desserts are creative and well executed too. We look forward to our fourth visit and hope to be able to get a table. The layout of the restaurant is well done with outside dining and indoor bar area as well as an intimate dining room with a fireplace. They have a beautiful outdoor patio as well so something for everyone not just on the menu but as far as comfort level within a restaurant. Needless to say when you have this kind of Talent in the kitchen you must match it with the skills of the service Nomads has excellent service in that they know the menu as well as how to provide non-intrusive service. Restaurant owners, chefs and servicers could learn from Nomads.
