The service and atmosphere were excellent at Nanam, but the real standout was the food. Reasonably priced for such a high-quality dining experience. The tapas menu astounded with the Taco Pao (Nanam's signature dish) and sweet and sour Brussel sprouts. We had the braised beef cheek and pork belly mains. The beef cheek was exquisitely cooked, so soft it fell off the fork! The pork belly had a thin, excellent level of crackling and the fat was rendered very well. Every dish we had was especially wonderful for the use of texture in each bite.

Am itching to go back already!

We went there with my 2 young kids. As soon as we got there we were greeted warmly and offered water. We were offered baby seats even before we asked. The restaurant had a nice ambiance. They also offered the kids menu which we didnt know they had. They checked if we want the kids food to be served ahead which was great as they get very impatient when hungry. The other food came after about 20minutes. Everything was delicious. We thought at first the there might not be enough to fill us up but surprisingly it was the right amount. We ordered pork skewers, chicharon, eggplant, kumara for appetisers. They were all very tasty. For the mains we got a variety. Kare kare, duck, caldereta, angus beef. I recommend the angus beef inasal. My partner really enjoyed it. For dessert we tried the halohalo and bibingka. The combination of everything was amazing. Thank you for a great experience.

A friendly local restaurant with outstanding food and service. The food is quite unique compared to your classic Asian fusion but so delicious. The wagyu roll ups, chicken sinigang, papaya slaw and Kumara are personal favourites!

This place was mind-blowing amazing! We couldn't fault them on anything. The food was superb, all the flavours are combined perfectly. To start we had the Lamb croquettas and grilled pork belly, both very enjoyable. For mains we had the beef cheeks that just melted in the mouth, it came covered with a lettuce leaf and it was like unwrapping a gift to reveal what was underneath, presentation was very nice. Also ordered the Angus rib eye which was very moist and tasty. For dessert we had the Halo-halo which was such a refreshing dessert that wasn't too heavy for our already full and very satisfied bellies. The service was very attentive, personable and and friendly (Dana was our helpful and lovely waitress). We went with open expectations and left as huge fans, definitely returning to this place :)

My friend and I had a fantastic dinner experience at Nanam. We were new to Filipino food so didn’t know what to expect. We loved the decor, the relaxed friendliness.
We ordered taco pao, eggplant and kawahai for entrees. We got the tuna and duck mains along with rice and papaya salad. We had the pandan panna cotta and sago desserts.
It was amazing. We enjoyed all the food. It was the kind of food where it tasted familiar yet combinations were so clever and different. We savoured every bite!
We hope to come back to try more things on the menu.
The service was good too- they didn’t rush us and were very responsive to requests.
We had a great evening catching up with awesome food. Thank you.

This is at least the tenth time we have been to Nanam, we bring friends visiting Auckland and they are never disappointed. Delicious innovative visually appealing dishes which you would not find anywhere else in NZ. Friendly vibe. They have a few good plant based dishes along with the meat choices, but the plant based mains are too small for the price and I left hungry, even though we had side dishes and an entree. If they improve this, then I would nothing but good things to say about this restaurant.

I never had Filipino Cusine so was looking forward to try something new.
We thought it might be some new Asian type of dishes, atmosphere. But it was rather Spanish/Mexixan type of food and particular atmosphere!

All in all
Great food, great atmosphere, great service!

My favourite was the Beef Cheek.

I asked the waitress after dinner and she mentioned its Filipino Cuisine with South American fusion.....

Went for my son's birthday & had a lovely meal. Tried four entrees - scallops, tuna, prawns & pork. Each one was scrumptious. The flavours were fresh, unique & so very very tasty. For mains had fish, pork belly, Angus beef. Each one had another array of flavours. Simple side dishes like beans weren't just beans they came with delicious dark mushrooms that added a whole new dimension. The same for the broccoli salad. The dessert was a banana Sundae - a pastry wrapped banana mousse type filling. A little sweet for some but tasty for sweet tooth people. The only thing I didn't like was the powdery chocolate crumble underneath. It made for a dry combination. The other dessert a Halo Halo was an interesting combination of fruits, mousses & other things. A in all the service was outstanding, the atmosphere pleasant with tables not squashed too close & we rated the food as the best meal out we've had in a long time.

4 of us shared a dozen Tapas dishes. A wonderful medley of flavours, colours, textures, tastes. Everything about the experience was a pleasure. We were never rushed and the information from staff on each dish was both helpful and lived up to their descriptions. Definitely deserves a 2nd, 3rd and 4th visit to work our way through the whole menu.

The food was delicious, with very interesting flavour combinations that I hadn't experienced before (I'm not very familiar with Filipino food). We had 8 of the tapas, my favourite was the beetroot bao. The service was also lovely - attentive but serene. I would definitely go back!

This was our first time to dine in Nanam and will definitely recommend it to others who like to try Filipino cuisine.
Excellent food from small plates to dessert. I understand now why a lot of people are raving about their food especially their taco pao. We ended our meal with halo halo which my daughter would not even share with me because it was so delicious (love the leche flan in particular :-) )
Service was excellent and they served the food very quickly.
Looking at the menu now and thinking what to try next time.
Thank you nanam and first table.
