When you glance up at the ceiling of NSHRY, you’ll see 1500 timber stakes. The striking feature piece was painfully hand bolted over the course of a week by owners Jen and Michael Nham. It’s a good example of the creative ideas that set them and their venues apart.

With a background in digital media, starting in hospitality seemed an unlikely option for Jen, but she was persuaded by her brother, Michael. Their other establishment, Banoi, has since opened in the CBD and Docklands to offer Vietnamese food.

NSHRY’s menu draws largely on the pair’s Asian heritage. It offers classic family recipes with a contemporary spin.

Breakfast includes crumbed eggs with yuzu yoghurt and parmesan crisps; and Viet eggs with grilled Chinese sausage, bacon lardons and mixed Asian mushrooms.

Signature lunch dishes include the Umami Burger, Viet Chicken Salad and Taco Rice Bowl. Rotating weekly specials offer a change of scene for regulars.

There’s also a selection of craft beers, wine and ciders to sip while you enjoy the salty breezes that aerate the beachside space.

NSHRY is now hiring. Find out more on Scout, Broadsheet's new employment website.
