Contrary to the noisy and crowded pubs that line Club Street, Nazt Bistro Lounge offers a cozy ambience suitable for a quiet night out. The dim lighting, however, did make food photography a rather arduous task.
Warm and fluffy slices of herb bread and white bread were served after we placed our orders, I preferred the former.
Seafood Delight ($22++): Oven baked fillet of sole, grilled prawn & clams served with clam chowder, caviar & crab oil
Cooked to flaky doneness, the mild-flavored sole proved to be a good match with the rich clam chowder perfumed with crab oil. The caviar-topped freshwater prawn that was the centerpiece of this dish didn't disappoint either, with its fresh and sweet flesh.
Rachel ordered the pan fried red snapper ($18++), which was accompanied by savoy cabbage, parsnip mash & thyme cream sauce.
Pan Seared Watermelon ($8++): Caramelized watermelon with berries & ice cream
Warm watermelon's not my thing but I certainly enjoyed the delicious scoop of honey ice cream. This was made all the more delicious when paired with crunchy bits of buttery crumble.
While the friendly and unobstrusive service would be ideal for couples, I've got to admit that it was difficult to attract the waiter's attention when it was time to pay the bill! For those watching their wallets, there is also a $18++ three-course set lunch available at Nazt.
