One of our favourite restaurants! The food is incredible, very fresh and the servers are very knowledgeable and will offer dishes that aren't on the menu. We can highly recommend this restaurant!

I eat at Nori sushi 2-3 times per month. They always have the freshest fish and the portions are larger than most sushi restaurants. It's gets soo busy sometimes that we order our food to go. The prices are great too.
