“Excellent food but UNETHICAL owner”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2011

We used to be regulars at Noku. Food was amazing, service was even amazing. Then we found out the owner was not paying the waitress....for MONTHS! This included not giving her the generous tips we left for her on the credit card. After learning, that we could not justify giving him our business. Sorry, Jake, but until you learn to treat your (female) employees right, you will not get our business. This is the USA, not Korea, and your employees have rights.

“Love the service ....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2010

My first impression
...it looks like a very modest, simple, but clean place.
Also very friendly & family oriented ... kids love the sushi making process.
The food is a combination of Japanese traditions and Korean innovation, love the two !!
Everything was professional & very well served.
Tkx guys for a lovely night ....

“Not bad, but nothing stands out”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2010

Ordered their Bento Boxes with chicken teriyaki and spicy tuna, Green dragon and Spider crab rolls. We had to refer to their website to remember what we ordered. Again, not bad, just uneventful. Service was welcoming, friendly and professional.
