The food and service here are excellent. Highly recommend Nora. The place is small and busy particularly weekend evenings, reservations highly suggested. But remember the place is small, so if you make a reservation show up or be kind and cancel so they can let the table go. More

Asian | Ellicott City, Baltimore Suburbs

Exciting alternative to routine dining out. Tons of variety and the “conveyor belt” approach is entertaining. Our group tried most everything and all came away feeling it was a fun and tasty experience. Sauces are memorable. Plenty of seafood, lots of protein. Definitely worth a try. When we noticed we were the only non- Asians, we knew we had found a winner! More
