    What I loved about the food was that each dish had such different flavors and all the food was delicious. Couldn’t decide which one I liked better. Have to come back to try everything in the menu. Service was excellent. Really an amazing experience.

    My girlfriend and I were celebrating our anniversary and decided to choose Noko as our dinner spot. So glad we did! As we arrived at the host stand we were promptly greeted and wished a happy Anniversary. We had a few minutes to wait for our table to be ready so there brought us complimentary champagne to enjoy. After being sat Madeline came by and explained the menu to us and talked about the market catch for the evening, which was Monkfish. She was very helpful and knowledgeable about the menu. We ended up choosing seven dishes to share, which was more than enough! All dishes were unique and bursting with flavor. The manager Wilson came by and welcomed us and chatted for a few minutes. Overall 10 out of 10, thanks to all for a wonderful night!!

Really liked The Hero as a booze free option. Grateful to have y’all in the neighborhood. Will continue to return and grab take out!

    We went there for late Valentine’s Day celebration. Gotta say we had a really good time! The food was delicious, the vibe was great - slow and smooth, and the drinks were awesome. Definitely recommend for special occasions or if you just want to try really good Asian-Fusion food. We started with Yuzu Spritz and Yo-Ho Brewing Umami (recommended by waitress Natalia, thanks!). For the good, we ordered: Salmon Carpaccio - lightly salty, the salmon was really fresh and tasty. Tuna Crispy Rice - very cool dish - raw tuna at the top with crispy “rice cake” at the bottom. Brisket French Dip - best dish of the day. The sandwich was soft, the brisket was on-spot and the beef soup was the cherry on top. Really good. Japanese Fried Chicken & Waffles - Southern style with an Asian touch. Fried chicken was tender, the waffle was light and not making you feel stuffed, and maple syrup was the awesome - not too sweet but get you the sweetness you need.

    LOVED our experience at Noko! The food was fantastic and our waitress was phenomenal at bringing plates out to us without overwhelming the table. There wasn’t a single dish on the menu we didn’t like! Our ground ended up ordering 2nd’s of a variety of dishes because of how blown away we were! We’ll definitely be back!

    Easily one of my favorite restaurants in Nashville. It is an absolute treat when a restaurant does everything right. As always Wilson and staff took care of me and my wife, the hospitality at Noko is second to none and just on service they deserve more than 5 stars. The food and drinks are always prepared to perfection and always innovative. The ambiance and vibe of the restaurant is perfect for a date night but also great for a casual gathering with friends. Music is always at the perfect level where you can feel the energy of the restaurant but can have a conversation without having to raise your voice. Noko truly checks every single box when it comes to dining experience and they are only getting better. Keep up the amazing work, your hard work has not gone unnoticed by this customer!

    What a gem in East Nashville! We celebrated my birthday at Noko and I enjoyed the meal very much. We ordered East side shrimp, wagyu tartare, tuna crispy rice, edamame and crispy potatoes. So delicious. Wilson stopped by to wish me a happy birthday and I was touched by the gesture.

    My friend and I really loved the food, the service was great. Unfortunately we were seated next to two screaming kids for almost our entire meal. It made it hard to talk to each other and put a bit of a damper on the experience. Especially since it was our first time. I know the restaurant it not responsible for this, but just the same it made the dinner less than pleasant.

    Wow, what a great place! When the “locals” tell you “this is our favorite place and has the best sushi” you listen and believe them! This place was amazing! 100% recommend.
