I love this place. Never had a bad meal. They offer both eat in and take out. As well, although they specialize in Thai food, they also offer sushi. I wish they would relcate this restaurnt to Toronto!

Pros... VERY authentic thai with creamy curries, and phad thai. If you like basil.... try it, has the spice of Thailand.. They grow their own spices on property and you can taste the difference. There are some really good thai restaurants in the bay area but this one is our favorite because portions are decent, prices good, and location is close to home.
Cons... small 50 seat restaurant can and does get absolutely packed. If you are solo or go with just one other person the Sushi seats will work if you don't mind being next to someone else... That said, rarely will you wait for long as they do seem to push the flow during those times. So if you go BE AWARE that others are there to eat and it isn't a place during those times to be chatty after dinner! (had to put that)...

TOGO is an idea if you call ahead! Also, if you find it packed, place your TOGO, go next door and have a beer.

Lastly

ENJOY!

From the dawn of time to the present day, humans have gone to extraordinary lengths to find meaning in life. They have stared into their reflections on still glacial waters, scaled mountains, ingested peyote, sought advice from middle-eastern mystics. If only they'd known about Nori Thai & Sushi, they could have saved themselves the trouble. Not to mention brain cells and expense. Discovering the menu's sensual array of Thai and sush is like discovering a whole new meaning for your tastebuds. It's like discovering love again.

Don't let the understated atmosphere fool you. As the 8 year-in-row winner of St. Pete's "Best of the Beaches" awards will attest, this is a dining experience of the first order.

Nori's Thai dishes are hot, savoury, and packed with flavor. And their sushi is the best I have ever experienced - hands down. Especially since they use a unique palette of Thai sauces to ramp up the flavor in every roll.

If you're there for Thai, you can't miss with the pad-thai and "Thai-tanic soup." If it's sushi you're looking for, be sure to ask for their "special menu" - a single, laminated page of rolls reserved for regular visitors and others "in the know." You can also ask for the "momma roll" if you like a combination of cooked and raw, covered with crisp tempura and spicy sauce drizzled over top. That one is not on any menu, but I order it every time I visit.

Thai. Or sushi. Either way, you will not be disappointed.

We'be been here many times and ordered numerous items from their expanding menu, and its always been a pleasant experience. The prices are good, the service is friendly and the flavors are fantastic. If you want something to cool off to after a spicy dish, order a Thai tea...very sweet and creamy which helps counter the Thai spices.

Nori Thai is a very solid Thai / Sushi destination. Although not the best of either cuisine, everything I have had there is solid. A few of our favorites are the Thai-tanic soup, pad thai (obvious choice I know but their's is very good), St. Pete Beach roll, and the crispy duck.

The owners and the staff are very nice, and take great care of their customers.
