Nora Restaurant And Bar Ratings and Reviews
From the minute we walked in the door to the last crumb of dessert, Nora was 5-Stars all the way.
I had the pleasure of going to Nora on a Saturday evening with 3 other people. The decor was tasteful and the tables comfortable and nicely appointed. We were warmly greeted as we arrived and the staff went out of their way to make sure we were happy.
They have good wine choices, and the dolma were the best I’ve probably ever had. The hummus was delicious and the pita soft and warm. Our waiter Craig honored our request for an easy paced dinner and his wine recommendations were spot on. My partner had the lamb shank and I had the Kadu with the added lamb. Both were drool worthy.
For dessert were had the baklava and a recommended chocolate mousse. Excellent!
I can’t wait for the weather to get nicer so I can go to the roof!
We finally ventured out to Nora this past weekend. The place was humming. The Afghan food is authentic and flavorful. The Qabali pulao is to die for and my favorite. The Mantoo appetizer was very tasty and very nicely presented. The restaurant has a cozy ambiance and it was worth the drive from North Dallas.
We had a great experience when we went there just before Christmas, so we wanted to go back and invited friends to join us this time. The food was definitely not as good. My entree was cold and my guest's entree was particularly dry, and those were just the complaints I knew about. We were also bothered by the loud bass pounding from the rooftop bar, which we had been warned about but didn't experience on our first visit.
I can am always depend up on Nora to provide consistently good food. Each dish has its own unique flavor, and the service is excellent. The ambience is upscale casual, and the noise level is such that conversations can actually be had at the table.
My wife and I keep coming back on a regular basis. We have brought different sets of friends along from time to time, and they too have put Nora on their list of restaurants to frequent.
This is a lovely restaurant with an amazingly unique food and wine menu and great service. It has always been a wonderful dining experience and great for the price. However they’ve begun playing loud music on the rooftop bar which doesn’t match their restaurant vibe or what their brand seems to be. We were very disappointed in the rooftop bar experience this past week, before had been lovely relaxing and a nicer experience than other area rooftop bars. I hope they lower rooftop music volume.
We had a fabulous dining experience😀😊The food was delicious and perfectly seasoned, my tastebuds enjoyed every bite. The service was impeccable, our server Jenna took excellent care of us and the ambiance was wonderful. The owner Matt takes great pride in his beautiful restaurant. We can’t wait to go back!!
I overheard a stranger in a cigar shop earlier in the day speaking highly of this restaurant. Since we already had plans for date night at Nick & Sams, but were too late to make reservations, we decided to give Nora a chance. Lower Greenville has changed so much over the years, and there are many new options, and some fantastic old ones, so it's an easy option when considering a night out. Nora's ambience is immediately inviting from the patio through the front door. The host (maybe owner) was kind and welcoming. The waitstaff was friendly and knowledgeable which, considering this was our first experience with Afghan food, was truly appreciated. The portions were large and delicious. Similar to Indian cuisine but unique, the combination of spices explodes in flavor without being uncomfortably spicy-hot. We look forward to bringing our friends back to enjoy the experience. We dined indoors, but the sidewalk patio along Greenville Ave. and rooftop lounge are nice options as well.
The food was amazing. We had Kadu and meatballs for our appetizers, and then couldn’t decide on dinner so the waiter suggested the chef could make us a sample platter. We did that and loved the lamb, beef and chicken as well as the sauces, sides and lovely presentation. Simply delicious! I’ve already made another reservation for an upcoming business dinner.
Nora's is one of our favorite restaurants which is why we chose to celebrate our 37th Wedding Anniversary here. The food was wonderful as always. The flavors are so delicious and unique. We enjoyed two different specialty cocktails which were really nicely done. We know their desserts are great but we had to save that for another visit which will be soon. The owners of this restaurant really care about their product from the food to the service and ambiance. It shows. Well worth checking out Nora's as I don't think you will be disappointed.
I have been to Nora's several times over the past year. Initially the food was fantastic, the service perfect, and the overall experience terrific. However, over the past three months the quality has slipped dramatically. The last two visits people I have dined with have wanted to try salmon and have been told that the restaurant is "out of fish". This last visit the bread was stale and had green mounds of mold growing on it, and the server was continuously forgetting items. The drinks remain a strong point, with automatic and interesting combinations of flavors, however I think that given the general trend of the quality this recent visit may be my last.
Tried this restaurant during Restaurant Week. It was OK, nothing special. Food was luke warm. Had Lamb Shank for entree and was hardly any meat. What was there tasted fine. The Basmati rice that came with it tasted like Rice A Roni. Service was decent, but a bit slow, considering it was a Tuesday evening and not very crowded. Atmosphere is pretty good. I think there are enough other more interesting restaurants out there that there is no need to waste money on this type of experience.
Really enjoyed dinner at Nora this past weekend! We had been there previously but hadn't been for a while, the DFW restaurant week motivated us to return. Cocktails were great. The Mandoo appetizer (beef dumpling with yogurt sauce, great spices) was tasty. We followed with salads - cucumber and Nora salads, and then on to the delicious lamb shank. Every dish had interesting and unusual (to us) spices as we rarely eat Afgan food...but should do so more often. If you haven't tried it: go.
Excellent ! We loved the food and the drinks! Innovative and interesting menu and the dishes are as tasty as they sound. Four of us shared a sampler appetizer plate, Mantoo, A vegetarian plate, and Beef Kofta kabob with saffron rice. The portions were ample, but not huge, and had distinctive, well balanced flavors. We will be back!
I am from Afghanistan and always been searching for Afghani food around DFW but after two years finally found my favorite one.Took my girl for date here and she loved it too. The lamb kabob and Saffron rice was incredible. We decided to go here every other week. And great service Ever !!!
My husband and I went to Nora's on recommendation from our friends for our anniversary. It was a true delight! The food Oh! was amazing. I had the Sabzi, so fresh! The hummus, a dream! The staff was just cool and comfortable. I had a cake brought there in advance to surprise my husband. The did so great with signals on when to bring it out, it was hilarious my husband had no idea. We will definitely be making Nora's a regular visit when we are in Dallas. I recommend it highly!
