    The tables and atmosphere were nice. Lighting was so low we had to use our phone flashlights to see the menu. Portions small for the price. Our server was super slow and didn’t come back very often and took forever too bring anything we asked for. Food was cold. They did take it off the bill and give us a gift card. This was my second time here and I am not impressed.

    The food, as always, was excellent. The service was fast and courteous. Our only concern was when they brought the checks, that they had assumed (without asking us) - that we had shared our appetizers and they made the decision to split the cost between us. We had never had this problem before. They were very busy and we didn’t say anything about it. In the future we will make sure to inform the server about our preference.

    The food was good, but you definitely pay for presentation. This is the first Mexican restaurant that I have ever been to that did not serve chips and salsa. In fact, charges extra when you ask for salsa. Will not return

    Didn’t have a great experience here. Service was slow, ordered one of the more expensive combo platters on the menu and the side of beans that came with it was literally like 10 beans in a bowl of bean water/juice

    The ambiance and food was outstanding. Definitely authentic, flavorful and right on point with other truly "Mexican" restaurants that feel and taste truly authentic. We were there on a busy Friday night that was loud, with a large crowd at bar and many large parties within the dining room area so to be expected. Our waitress could barely understand us, many times we needed to flag down another waitstaff member to explain what we wanted or needed bc our specific waitress did not undertand us. We had a language barrier with her level of English. However, it didn't affect our meal and time at Nom Nom, it was delicious. Tacos (birria, fish and al pastor) all fabulous. Loved the chips and the spices that were added to them. We also got ceviche app and that was yummy too! Nom Nom margarita and Paloma cocktails superb!

    We enjoyed Nom Nom as a Purdue pregame dinner destination with 5 of our out of town friends. I thought the carne asada tacos were delicious; everyone enjoyed their entree choices. The chips and guacamole were plentiful. My wife had some sort of exotic Margarita and thought it was great. Nom Nom never lets us down. The place was certainly hopping, as plenty of others seemed to have the same plan we did for dinner followed by basketball. Yet our service was friendly and fast.

    This is my second time to the restaurant. The food was very good and the ambience was pretty good too. However the service was just damage this time. Multiple times my waitress walked past our table. When I wanted to get her attention who kept walking by. Twice I had to flag down different servers. So that I could get something that I needed.

    Very festive atmosphere on a Friday night. Almost every table was filled. The service was great - nice ambience. Food is not Tex-Mex so don’t go expecting a large pre-made burrito with refried beans. Guacamole is great - everyone enjoyed their food - they have great fresh lime margaritas.

    The food was excellent. While there are very familiar Mexican dishes they were done with a different flare. There were also unique choices that you don't find in typical Mexican restaurants. The service was great. Just the right amount of attention paid.

    The food was good. Definitely not what I expected from a Mexican restaurant definitely had a twist. The service was horrible. The staff was very friendly but our waitress never once asked to refill water or drinks. It took a while to even take our order. I won’t be back at the downtown location for while however I would like to try the southside

    We celebrated a family birthday and there were 8 of us. They kindly put together two tables to give us enough room. Our server Marilyn was sweet and did a great job, we were not the easiest table to wait on since we had multiple checks with shared appetizers, etc. but she kept track of it all and with a smile. I tried three different tacos and only liked one of them (the Al pastor). The octopus taco was very rubbery and I would not recommend it. My husband had the chicken tacos and they were very good. For the birthday they brought a sundae of ice cream and churros with fruit and chocolate sauce and a very nice birthday card! They also allowed us to bring in cupcakes to share after our meal. I would recommend Nom Noms for the excellent service and for how they help you celebrate your birthday.

    Unfortunately .. we were a party of 6 .. one person did not get their food when we did . Took 10 minutes to hunt the waitress down .. language barrier .. and then waited another 20 minutes for his food !!!!! And the whole party had no water refills .. no second drinks this whole time . Again, had to hunt down someone for another round of margs . Lastly, the mgr brought out two desserts at the end .. but sadly the person just got their food. Bad timing .. if you can bring out dessert food that quick then you should of put his meal to the front of all guests and got it out . We still paid 70 for two people .. and had poor service and poor food . Good luck .. they won’t last long in this town .

    Great service, our waitress was concerned and kept us informed of a big event slowing the kitchen prep time. Was not a problem, food came out fairly quick, and was great! The menu had many items I would like to try, unfortunately we are from out-of-town. Very, very accommodating staff, Great Food at a reasonable price. Highly recommended by a fussy shopper.

    The reservation was upheld and we were seated right away. I had a cocktail that was great. However, it took an hour to see our food after ordering and an extra 30 minutes for mine to come out after everyone else’s. Horrible experience.

    We recently went on a Saturday as a larger party of 7 for a graduation dinner. The food and drinks were outstanding and very authentic from the appetizers to the entrees, everything was delicious. The service at the table was great, I think the host was definitely new so be patient waiting to get seated. Other than that great aesthetic and great food.
