As good as most Japanese restaurants in Vancouver at half the price. Always very fresh, and the staff especially the sushi chefs are very friendly. love this place.

“Friends from back home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2012

How surprised were we than to receive a greeting that we used to receive from our favorite sushi place on the mainland. We looked up and there were two of the chefs from the mainland restaurant. We are thrilled! The sushi is creative and always the freshest..the dining room beautiful and the service impeccable. Sit at the sushi bar and talk to Chefs Shaun and John. You will not believe the wonderful sake collection too!

“Great sushi”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 11, 2012

My husband and I ate an early dinner here recently and loved it. He asked for gluten free soy sauce which they supplied. The sushi was very fresh, they had a special order of ahi tuna in and it was amazing. The tuna tataki is very fresh and tasty. The gomae spinach salad is also delicious. We will choose Nori Sushi again soon.

“Simply amazing !”

Consistently tasty and fresh! My favorite BBQ eel. Visiting at least once a month and the food quality, portioning and freshness is always the same - as well as great service!
