    Outstanding decor and atmosphere. Very relaxing from the hustle and bustle of shopping. Presentation of food was excellent and very tasty. We enjoyed our appetizer and our meal. Cocktails were delicious too! Great value!

    Couldn't eat either of the dishes ordered. They didn't seem to concerned. No veggie sushi rolls. The decor is great the menu needs an overhaul

    Exciting food! Very fine dining here for sure!! Beats everything else in Hingham and further afield. The crispy crunchy eggplant bao and the Peking duck bao are scrumptious! Too bad I had to share them with my date (of 54 years standing). We each had an order of the tuna crudo. Superb. The sauce was light, citrus-y and delectable. The grilled lime garnish was a touch of genius. The most delicious cuts of the tuna. And the Wu-Tang braised pork ribs with Thai BBQ hoisin with chopped peanuts, Thai basil, and crispy shallots as a garnish were excellent also. We have reserved again for lunch a few days from now. Oh yes, the ramen broth and noodles are wonderful. The broth has a wonderful depth of flavor and the noodles are just right al dente. Thank you for a wonderful dining experience. We are grateful. One caveat: give this chef a chance. The food may not be familiar pan Asian. But you'll develop a wonderful mouth memory of his cooking and crave more!!!!!!!!!!

    Loved Nomai last night. Food was delicious. We had the salmon dish, the teriyaki burger, koji chicken sandy, and a yummy rice noodle salad. All were very flavorful and enjoyed by whole table. Meg was our server and she was great. Attentive, knowledgable and friendly. Will be back again!

    The food was mostly inedible. The restaurant was so cold we left our coats on. Mostly empty… I guess other people know not to dine here.

    Exceptional experience in all aspects. New menu for fall/winter. The salmon entree was delicious and the crab fried rice, one of our favorites. Tuna tacos were the best we’ve ever had. Casey, our server, was top notch! Looking forward to going back soon.

    Best asian food around!!!! Ramen, Tuna tacos, tuna crudo, Peking duck bao, etc. Fabulous! Even their cheeseburger and fires are so special. The quality at Nomai is heads above other close by eateries that pack in the crowds. Simply cannot compare if you really like fine food. Thank you Nomai!!! Oh, and by the way, it's a gorgeous place. The manager and service is excellent. I can't wait to go back!
