We don't usually frequent buffets as the food quality tends to be poor. My kids wanted a sushi buffet for the older one’s birthday so we decided to try out Nori Nori. So glad we did! Everything was delicious, fresh and of good quality. Can’t...wait to go back!More

I been to Nori Nori twice. Once for Dinner and once for lunch. The dinner buffet is costlier but it is definitely worth as you have more variety of sashimi for dinner. Nori Nori is by far the best Japanese buffet I have been which...offers a huge selection of sushi and sashimi. But the huge selection doesn't mean they compromised on the quality. I am definitely going back.More

My wife and I have been dining at Nori Nori since 2014. What was once an up-scale fresh seafood establishment is no longer. Our latest visit was the absolute end to our visits. We came during the lunch buffet recently and were absolutely shocked at...how drastic their establishment had changed for the worse. When we were walking to the entrance, there was an un-refrigerated truck out front bringing in boxes of food. I can only hope the food being brought in was not fish or meat. The vast majority of the selections were unavailable. The sushi was disgustingly lukewarm and tasted clearly not fresh by any means. I absolutely love sushi, sashimi, etc. trust me when I say that this was not fresh. We addressed the missing selections in hopes to have a salad of some sort to no avail. Sure, they said they would restock it, but never did. As time went by, we spoke with the supervisor/manager. Who bowed a few times and explained to me they have new staff and our still learning. *Which is irrelevant! I just want some food! All of the employees literally couldn't look more miserable... Except for our waitress Mohoganay, who was very friendly. Last but not least and to cap off our miserable dining experience, there was an actual roach like bug scattering around on our table! Never in my life have I actually had this occur to me, let alone from a so-called high-end buffet. When I bought it to our waitresses attention, she appeared shocked when she seen it. She then told the manager/supervisor who came with a towel and quickly did whatever she did with it. She (the supervisor/manager) did nothing about the situation. Literally, I spoke and she didn't! She did nothing! Let alone a comp. It was actually strange. How do you receive a complaint, and then personally see a bug, then a complaint, and say nothing at all!? It's not like she didn't understand me, as she had previously made various excuses and justifications as to why there was nothing to eat but soup and old food scraps. I am a person who generally eats plenty, especially at a buffet style restaurant. I left hungry. *Also, the 'Owner Replies' from other displeased reviewers comments are nonsense. The servers are NOT trained well to handle situations such as mine, as they did nothing to rectify our situation(s) when brought to their attention. I couldn't be more shocked and displeased at this simply disgusting experience. This is what you hear about in restaurant horror stories! Well I now have my own, thanks to Nori Nori. What we experienced is inexcusable. Any legitimate owner explanation would be appreciated.More

I’ve reviewed this restaurant several times over the years. Overall, it has remained true to it’s original theme: excellent Japanese Food at a fair price. While it’s not cheap, the foods presented are reflective of the price charged. If you’re looking for a large China...buffet with some rolls this is not your destination. I’ve spent some time in Japan and the foods here, except the Soba, are similar. The Soba presentation was nice, however, it’s short of my Japanese experience. We generally do lunch. Service is excellent and that’s rare in a Japanese restaurant.More

I have been here several times and every time it seems to get worse and worse in quality. This is by far the worst time: the sushi rice doesn't have the vinegar flavor like it should, the fried calamari was cold, chewy and too fishy....The tempura was cold and not fresh. The common theme: cold, unfresh and low quality food. I wish they go back to where they were. I will never go there again. I would rather pay the $34 somewhere else where I can have good quality delicious fresh food.More

We have been to Nori Nori several times and each time has been great. We took our oldest son for his birthday and he was thrilled with the selection and quality. I don't eat sushi but there is a lot of other choices too. The...only problem I have is they always try and get me to eat sushi, I'm just not a seafood person. :)More

Stopped in on a Saturday night at Nori Nori and our socks were knocked-off by the sheer size of this buffet. It's HUGE. Like, really. H.U.G.E. Tons of different options for rolls. Hibachi. Traditional Asian buffet offerings. An awesome crepe station. It has great potential,...but ... What keeps it from Excellence: Some of the sashimi wasn't fresh. The rolls, while plentiful, were combinations of the same fish (mostly salmon, tuna and imitation crab); and I didn't see anything wrapped in soy paper. (I'm not a huge fan of seaweed.) The hibachi station is consistently backed-up, and the Crab Legs that account for the weekend up-charge aren't plentiful. The prices aren't posted, so you may be surprised when you receive your bill. (It's $33.95/person on Friday, Saturday & Sunday night.) So if you go, plan to be there for a weekday lunch ($18.95/person). I'll probably go again, but not on a weekend.More

This place has an amazing location. Not only looks good but also it has wide variety for you to try new flavours. Try the sushi, from sweet to spice you will enjoy perfect tastes.Might be a little pricy but it's worth it due to the...organization and how well prepared the dishes are. A place to go several times when in town.More

My husband is a major sushi fan where I'm not but they have all sorts of options for those of us that don't like it. From shrimp, crab legs, and hibachi which is all excellent!! The dessert bar is off the chain which my husband...loved while I continued to stuff myself with seafood! Awesome place!More

I believe it is around $32-$35 plus drink and tip. Very good restaurant if you like sushi and prepared salads and hot foods.
