Best sushi in town

Wonderful selection of "exotic" sushi as well as basic sushi selection. Seafood is fresh and presentation is beautiful. Prices are a little high but well worth it. They are busy on weekends but can walk in during the week.

This is one of my favorite sushi places in montclair. I love their soups too. Great chirashi and original special rolls.

I love the nearby Veggie Heaven, but I can't bring myself to try their fake fish. At Nori, they use unusual combinations of vegetables and sauces so you don't even miss the meat. Service is pretty slow, but if you ask me you can't beat a $19 vegetarian sushi dinner. Bugs Bunny rolls are the best.

This place...does it right! And they do it very, very well. Excellent sushi -- fresh, high quality fish, and very well prepared. We only had sushi for dinner -- and every roll was excellent. The special rolls were excellent -- perfect balance, not overkill and too much of anything or everything. These aren't some thrown together multi-ingredient monster rolls. I... More

My fiancé and I have eaten at this nori and the other one many times and we are never let down. The food is awesome. She always gets the sushi and never has any complaints. I usually will get a bento box or some kind of teriyaki. This place never disappoints. I've introduced many friends to nori and no one... More

Yep, Nori Sushi is some of the best sushi we've had in the area. We're relatively conservative sushi eaters, honestly, keeping it to things like yellowtail, spicy salmon rolls, shrimp tempura rolls. No eel for us. We ordered all of the above and it was delicious. It may be the best shrimp tempura rolls we've ever had. The acoustics in... More

I discovered nori back in 2008 and automatically fell in love with it. I highly recommend it. It was a perfect place to start my love of sushi. At first I would only eat California rolls and donkey kongs, but now I am open to all the rolls

This is one of my local places for sushi. It is one of the best places to get fresh fish. The sushi roll selection is big and the love boat is more than enough food for the 2 or 3 they say it feeds.

I've tried all the local area sushis over the past few years and though many are good or very good, I find Nori to always be the best. Uni lovers need to come here. Everything else is very tasty and the service is always excellent. Pieces are big and fresh.
