The staff is so nice and helpful. The menu is great and unique. Our family likes this spot on our trips through town. The prices are very good and the quality is great. Looking forward to our meal there.

My favourite Japanese restaurant in Nanaimo. Bento selections at lunch are good value. Nice variety on the menu. Chefs work hard and are always friendly. I would have given a five star rating but last time I was there, it seemed the prices had increased.

The service is incredible, if you sit at the sushi bar which I highly recommend the chef's are extremely friendly and inviting. The food is absolutely amazing, I have had sushi at countless restaurants on the Vancouver Island and nothing compares to Nori.

We have eaten here many times and done take out, the food and service is always excellent. We don't eat raw fish so we love the variety and creative menu at Nori. Some of our favourites are the tofu bibimbab, the wild salmon teriyaki and the dancing shitake rolls.

I can't say enough about how good the Nori is and I can't express how excited I am that Sean is returning on Dec 2nd. I have my reservations made and can't wait to see his smiling face. This is the BEST sushi on the Island.

Just a wonderful place for the experience, service & food. Every time I'm up in Nanaimo I make the trip to the north end just to come here. Always a pleasure, would recommend to everyone.

Love the food and the service. Presentation and taste are excellent. Favourite is to walk in, sit at the sushi bar and just tell John "Oma Kase" and enjoy whatever he prepares for you!
