We usually go there about once every three weeks. One thing we are very impressed with them is their consistency. We get same quality of excellent food every time we go. Not many restaurants keep this level of consistency. Bravo to Nori!

Without a doubt, this is the finest sushi restaurants on Vancouver Island. The staff is wonderful and the owner John stages himself front and center offering warm greetings to all while preparing the most extraordinary dishes that tantalize even the most discriminating palate. If you haven't experienced Nori's, you haven't experienced the best sushi ever!

Not only is Nori super close to my house but every time you walk in the door all of the sushi chefs greet you as well as the servers. We eat there at least once a month and the food is always fantastic and consistent. The servers are friendly and we have had free dishes brought to us from the chefs a few times. Overall excellent! And a fun, friendly and relaxing atmosphere.

Sushi can be pretty pedestrian, especially at some place in a mall...near a Costco. Well not at Nori!
The food is fresh (including the fish), well prepared, innovative and well plated and served. The biggest problem I've found is that once you discover it you keep coming back...and so do a lot of other people. Come early, come late, make a reservation if you have a group (ask for a private space), order take out (which is well done).
The only reason they don't get an Excellent rating is the location and the (sometimes) crowds.
