Really good sushi and a wide variety of it as well as non-sushi goodies. Cheaper during the week. Authentic Japanese cuisine.

This is a top notch, high quality all you can eat asian buffet that is incredible. It is 27 dollars per person, but well worth it. The selection is incredible.

Approximately $30-$40 per person out the door, but honestly the best sushi buffet I have seen in any major city! Too many raw and cooked sushi choices to count, then you can visit the hibachi grill area, or the full cooked Asian food side - WOW...a place you have to experience for yourself. Highly recommend!

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed Nori. The atmosphere was lovelier than any buffet we've seen. The sushi display was very inviting, and the sushi itself was good. We appreciated the variety of seafood. Many intriguing fusion entrees were offered, some better-tasting than others. American offerings ranged from oysters Rockefeller to pork ribs. There was a made-to-order hibachi station, including very decent steak among the options. There was even a made-to-order crepe station, and a green-tea soft-serve ice cream machine. Service was pleasant and attentive, refilling our glasses, bringing us more napkins and extra plates to dispose of shells (from giant crab legs, clams, etc). We plan to return, next time we visit the area.

We haven't been to Nori Nori in about a year and something definitely changed since our last time. This occasion was a family birthday and we had 8 adults and 3 children in our party (ages 11, 7, and 3). Here are my impressions:

1. When you first walk in, the kids are measured to determine how much they'd be charged. Our 7 year old measured right at 4 feet. If we took his shoes off, he'd probably be a bit below. However, the manager insisted on charging him 1/2 adult price (vs. 1/5 price, $10 difference). This is after we tried to explain that we have 8 adults and one older child and they are already getting $30x8+$15 at minimum from us and maybe should not nickel and dime us. Plus, our child (as any child his age) barely eats so he will definitely never eat $15 worth of food. Maybe $6 worth max. (which is the 1/5th of adult price and fair). The manager seemed young and inexperienced and stood his ground like his life depended on it. This is definitely not the way to start off your clients' dining experience on the right foot.
2. We made reservations in advance since it was a large party. When we got there (right on time), the table was not ready yet. After 10 min. wait we were led to the table closest to the kitchen, right in view of clanging dishes and all the usual unappetizing sights/smells. We politely asked to be moved. We were moved to the table right by the entrance which had zero ambiance and cold AC blasting right at us.
3. The buffet left much to be desired. The freshness of fish was average (nothing to rave about). Many types of sushi were not replenished. The signs to mark the sushi were confusing because the signs are side by side while the menu items are arranged one behind another on the buffet. It was confusing which item you were getting as many types of sushi look similar on the outside but can be very different on the inside.
4. There is only one cook making to order hibachi style dishes and he's very busy. Kids typically only eat hibachi in this restaurant so it took forever to get their food made and resulted in very cranky children.
5. The restaurant had a distinct smell to it (maybe fishy?). The bathrooms also didn't smell good and seemed unclean.

All in all, a very poor experience for the amount spent. For this money, go to a nice made-to-order sushi restaurant and have a pleasant meal!
