The hummus and the zucchini flowers were very delicous. The wait staff were very attentive and the ambience was great. They played light background music which didn't require you to scream in order to be heard.

About Nomad

When NOMAD first opened its doors in 2013, their aim was to bring together the best of Australian wine, produce and design in the heart of Sydneys' Surry Hills. Situated in a turn of the century warehouse with a large open central kitchen and bar, NOMAD is all about bringing together family and friends in a laid back yet beautiful atmosphere. Their team of chefs work with the best local producers from around NSW and Australia, while their extensive wine list celebrates Australia’s diverse wine community, with a list that spans the length of the country, showcasing the best small growers, producers and winemakers. From their freshly baked sourdough, brioche, lavosh and flatbreads to their own charcuterie and cheese rooms, the restaurant prides itself on house-made produce. Head chef, Jacqui Challinor’s menu is designed to share and is strongly influenced by Mediterranean and Middle Eastern flavours, featuring specialty dishes such as their Cannellini Bean Hommus or NOMAD Jersey Milk Haloumi.
