It was my 2nd visit to the Elements in Kowloon and my 1st lunch visit. I walked around trying to find a noodle house since I was alone and wasn't really that hungry to have a full meal. I do love noodle in Hong Kong. I didn't find one on my first visit here at the Elements. I did find a Shanghainese restaurant serving Ramen type of noodles but that wasn't what I was looking for. I then chanced upon Nahm and it was packed during lunch. I was lucky that it was after 1 pm and some diners have begun to make their way back to the posh office up above. Hence, my success at getting a table here.
I like the open concept of the restaurant. Most of the restaurants in Hong Kong are packed during the lunch hour, same for this one. It looks like a business restaurant but with a relaxed mood to it. Not too big and feels cosy. I decided I like it! On this visit, I had a set lunch. It's definitely a lot more economical to have a quick lunch here than to have dinner, I found out later.
Let's take a look at what Namh does well for lunch. The set lunch I had consisted of Pomelo salad and Green curry with rice. The Pomelo salad was spectacular, the very best I've ever had so far! The Green curry was pretty decent as well although I've had better in Singapore's Thai Express.
It had been about 3 months since I last visited. Now, I returned for another visit. This time dinner. I had a simple dinner though. Simply the Pomelo salad and Pad Thai. The noodle is great with lots of seafood and quite a huge portion if you're dining alone. I decided that my dining experience at Nahm is a lot better during lunch, especially if I'm dining alone or just need a quick lunch. The set lunch at HK$88 is truly of great value and the portion is more suited to my appetite. A salad (which is quite big in portion) and a choice of the main course (some 7 or 8 choices). If one is still not full, one can opt for a dessert (and it's truly good) at HK$25.
On my second lunch visit, I tried the Mango with black glutinous rice and it was yummy! It's however too much for me and I couldn't finish everything! Hence, my conclusion that it's truly value for money! My friend and I tried dimsum at another restaurant in Elements and it costs a lot more than what I have had to pay at Nahm. I'm truly happy with Nahm and will certainly make regular visits in future :-) 3 Thumbs up!
