‘Hum’ comes from the Sanskrit mantra ‘Om mani padme hum’ and the place stimulates all the senses, from the wall of flowers outside, to the birdsong-based soundtrack, tinkling water features, prettily lit wall panels and of course, the fresh, fragrant flavours of the Southeast Asian menu, which details not only ingredients and cooking method for each dish, but also potential health benefits. From the familiar – spring rolls, pad thai, and tempura veg (lightest, crispest batter ever) – to exotica like climbing wattle in egg roll or banana blossom salad, starters, mains, rice and homemade tofu are gorgeously presented and staff are helpful and happy to help you choose.
