    This was one of the best meals we’ve had in a long time - beautifully created and presented - complex flavours but wonderfully complementary - and a perfect location on a beautiful night - well worth the $$

    We’ve been to NuNu many times before as we’re locals. Waited at least 10 mins before being offered water, then waited for drinks, then one drink brought twice. Had to ask if we could order food. We had a mix of small plates to share amongst the 3 of us. One dish was delivered incorrectly. Poor, uninterested service apart from the lovely girl who once lived in Essex, UK. You can do better than this NuNu !

    Wasn’t as good as when we came here two years ago but our expectations may have been higher as we really enjoyed the first time we dined here.

    Beautiful decor and surroundings, but remember to have insect repellent if enjoying the outdoors. The standout dishes for us were the melaleuca smoked fish wrapped in a pepper leaf and the grain porridge served in a small pumpkin.
