I visited with my husband on his birthday. The sushi was excellent, so fresh and delicious! The service was attentive but not overbearing. We will definitely be returning to try more of the Japanese food on the menu.

Visited with friends, and fiancé. We had the set menu so we could sample lots of different courses. Food was excellent quality, value for money and authenticity (having been to Japan last year I was anxious to try good Japanese food again) The staff couldn't do enough for us, and we're very friendly. Try their speciality 'crunch' California roles! Wow!

We popped in on a quiet Friday evening and are so glad we did! We tried a range of their dishes and really enjoyed them all, tuna sashimi, vegetable rolls, beef teriyaki - all the options were tasty. The service was friendly and it was good value. We will be back.

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.
