Great Food

I handle all of the catering for my company and we have had the pleasure of working with Mami Nora's often. Our employees love this place! The yellow (mayo & honey mustard based) sauce and the spicy green sauce are very popular! The food is great and we get good portions for our money!

Normally we get the meal to go and I would say it was always good. But this trip we decided to eat at the restaurant. This meant that everything was very hot and just great. We get the chicken with beans and rice. Our grandchildren have chicken with a serving of corn. Our daughter picks a vegetarian options. It is... More

My son suggested we go here for lunch and let's say I'm happy I listened to him. It's a place you can order your food from a simple menu with delicious tasting food. I ordered the chicken breast/ wing combo with rice and black beans. The chicken was so YUMMMYYY!!!!! It was seasoned just right. It was an average price... More

This place never disappoints. There are now 2 locations in Raleigh! We visited the new one and were pleased that all of our favorites were still in tact. They're known for their mouth watering chicken, but be adventurous and try other signature dishes like the pollo saltado or arroz chaufa. You won't be disappointed!

Mami Nora's menu has its roots in Peru. Now, I had traveled to Lima several times on business but never truly got to experience the great cuisine. This was unfortunate. About 10 years ago I was in New Jersey for several weeks and drove in to Paterson a half-dozen times and enjoyed great Peruvian food. [We understand that Paterson has... More

Mami Noras restaurant must be the hardest restaurant in Raleigh to live or work near---the wonderful smells of the delicious roasting chicken would drive you insane all day long!! I can't get enough of the food here. A great place for lunch or a quick dinner, Mami Noras gets packed fast at meal times so come a little early if... More
