I visited Noa last night for the first time following in from a recommendation and was really impressed. We went for the set menu B and could not fault any of the dishes. The tempura and chicken karaage came out fresh, piping hot and tasty....More

The food was wonderful - we’re big sushi fans so we’re not hard to please in a Japanese restaurant. I highly recommend the crunchy rolls and spicy rolls - a nice authentic spin on usual sushi. Not too pricy either considering it’s in the middle...More

The restaurant is great for value. My friend's Japanese acquaintance recommended this place and it didn't disappoint us. Soft shell crab roll and the classic roll have become our default sharing menu. The manager of the restaurant and the chef are very nice and we...More

So pleased to find this place. It is defiantly worth the money and the trip from Bath. The tempura batter the best I have had in a restaurant in this country and really nice to see you can have four or eight pieces of rolls...More

We visited NOA for the first time a couple of weeks ago and was fantastic. Food was delicious and would especially recommend any of the crunch rolls. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Can't wait to come again!

Didn't realise NOA was there- tucked away down a little side street. Food was good and arrived fast. Everything cooked well and lots of flavour. Would recommend - advise you order lots of dishes though as some are quite small.

Excellent place which serves up some excellent Sushi. Had a few drinks at the cocktail bar first before then enjoying an excellent selection of Sushi, sashimi and noodles. Also some really good tapas.

I don't have the new phone number but I would suggest that you just turn up. They only reopened last week so they were not at all busy when we went.

Bold, Exciting and Spectacular this is the new NOA Japanese. Born in 2009 Noa Japanese has been serving Clifton for over 5 years. But things have since changed. Nothing was left untouched to ensure the success of this huge Japanese beast that has laid dormant in a quite basement in the heart of Clifton, Bristol. "Noa Japanese has awoken!" We have changed our menu, decor, style and music. And have created a place which better reflects our passion for Japanese food just for you. Come, step inside and experience fun Japanese dining.
