This place is always packed. Best to make a reservation. Love their sunumono salad, especially the avocado kind. Had never seen that on a menu before and it's delicious. Also love their prawn tempura and crunchy California roll. Wait staff were friendly and competent. My sister and her... read more

After reading countless positive reviews about this yet another Japanese Restaurant, my wife and I finally decided to give it a visit. The restaurant looks really nice, clean, presentable and staffed by courteous and helpful, smiley people who seem to love their job! We ordered their appetizer samplers because we're not big eaters. I can always tell with the first... More

From start to finish the best Sushi I have had. I normally do like miso soup but after trying a taste, I had to order a bowel for myself. The lunch combo was an amazing value. The rolls were full and not just rice filler. The tempura was perfectly battered and portions generous. Of over 40 different sushi restaurants this... More

I have eaten here many times and the restaurant is consistently good. Friendly staff,quick service and the food is always delicious. Nice to go with a small group so that you can order several items and share.

I am a devotee and I know my sushi! Always fresh and well presented. Sometimes the restaurant is a bit crowded but take this a reflection of the food and service!

We go to Nori often. I have never been disappointed here. The service is great, they are always busy, and the food is what keeps us coming back :) The prices are fair considering the delicious options available. Mmmmmmmm Nori!!!! 😃

I'll start off by saying I am NOT a lover of sushi. We went last Friday night , a family of 4. We ordered 4 rolls and two tempura, two beers and it came to $80.00 The entrance was a bit snug. The lay out was ok. The booths are also a bit snug. No room to cross your legs.... More

Great sushi and other options available like Korean bibimbap. The fish is fresh and if you sit at the bar, you might get a free plate or two ;)

We came here last year and were blown away by the omakase (chef's choice) set menu.. We thought it was incredible and then the chef came out personally with more food! The experience was so much fun, we came back again this year and were not disappointed! Friendly staff, amazing food, and enormous portions, so come hungry!
