Nori Sushi offers both a sushi and an Asian fusion menu. Sit out on the large patio and people watch as you enjoy a plate of chicken lollipops that have been made with three Asian spices or a serving of sweet and chili tofu. Or choose to sit indoors at one of the comfortable tables and enjoy a plate of seafood pancakes or a jumbo lump crab cake. Nori Sushi offers several lunch specials such as the bento box with choices including teriyaki, tempura or galbi. Whether you come for lunch or dinner, sitting at the sushi bar is always an option where you can watch the chefs prepare your order of nigari or sashimi. Rolls and special rolls are also available. Nori Sushi offers a large drink menu with choices of red and white wines, sake and beer. There are several signature cocktails that can be tailored to your taste.

    We had the double dragon, soft shell crab and one other roll along with the salmon belly and hokaido scallops. Everything was fresh and good. The drinks were good and cold and the wine was at the perfect temperature. Our server was absolutely perfect. He seemed to know how much space to give us and when we needed him.

    Served very tasty rolls and Nigeria. Fish was fresh. Nigiri pieces were a little bit small. Overall, a little on the pricey side. Service was great however.

    Was not a busy night, countless tables open. At first they didn’t have any menus for us, the food came 50 minutes after we ordered. They frequently forgot our drinks or didn’t ask us if we wanted anything else. We watched people come in way later and get served before us. Overall a negative experience and we won’t be back. Baked lobster roll was good but everything else was average at best and very overpriced.

    The food was good! We had a variety of apps including spicy edamame, tempura cheese, gyoza, tuna poke. My husband had some salmon belly nigiri that he said was amazing. This restaurant has been open for a year and we were shocked to hear that. Service was lacking for an upscale restaurant. Our server seemed very nervous and unaware Service was incredibly slow. It took 30 min to get gyoza. Then the rest of the food just all came out at once and the table wasn’t even big enough to hold it all. No refills on water, had to flag someone down 3x. Server never came to ask if we wanted more drinks We spoke to the manager and he made excuses but did apologize and comped a few things. Then our bill came, I saw the total, we gave the card and when the bill came back after running our card they add $35 to the bill??? Really?? Sadly not sure we will return

    There for a birthday lunch. It was quiet and we had a pick of seating. The service was attentive and we were not rushed in any way. The food was good and came out quickly. I hope the same happens in the evening. I’m ready to try it again!

    The only reason this amazing restaurant is getting 3 stars is because when we went the air conditioning was being fixed and it was so hot and uncomfortable. The food is amazing, but I didn’t want to stay too long because I was so darn hot!

    Took 40+ mins to receive my order, which was only nirigi. Other tables that seated/ordered offer me got dishes before me. Also their indoors was overly warm and stuffy, poorly operating AC.

    They did not have what I ordered at 6.30 so I had to settle for one order of goyze and one small skewer of beef and my husband had one rainbow roll and a beer. I also had a cocktail. The bill was over $85. I am sure most of the staff was new which seems true everywhere these days, but the whole experience makes me even less excited about going out to a restaurant.

    This is the first time I’ve been here since Nori moved from Desert Ridge. I wasn’t impressed. The patio tables were super wobbly and not very clean- even the waitress said she’d asked the management to replace them for over a year. They had cloth napkins shoved underneath them and it looked like they’d been there for a year, too. The sushi took awhile to arrive and when it did, it arrived a room temp which was a little alarming. The waitress and host staff were kind, which we appreciated. We will try somewhere else next time.

    We were only 6 tables that evening, but it took them forever to get the drink(s) or food. At the end a guy came to clean our table even though we were not done, I asked him if they are closing and he said NO but I need to leave!! The food and cocktails were great.

    The food was delicious (as always). The service was awful… our waitress was friendly but forgot about our drink order, and our food took significantly longer than usual, even though we were one of maybe 8 tables in the restaurant total at the time….leading me to suspect it was sitting in the kitchen waiting to be delivered. Not the greatest experience service-wise, but the food is always delicious at Nori and we will be back.

    The quality of the food was better than expected. The Lobster roll was perfect and the sashimi fresh, crisp, and full of flavor. However the restaurant was understaffed and that created a poor experience. The servers did their best - but it wasn’t enough.

    Service was poor. Not enough place settings for our group of 3. Had to ask 2 different servers for more plates and napkins. Our sever was nowhere to be found. We had to ask other severs for other items we needed such as refills. Attention would have been nice. It was not busy at all. Maybe 3 other groups outside where we were sitting. Quality of food was poor for the price you pay.
