Sushi is fine: fresh and imaginative. However, some of the creations are overworked, for example sushi with tempura batter scattered over and then flavoured sauce. You might as well go for a Big Mac, it also has special flavoured sauce.

The Teriyaki was a pretty and tasty meal.

The Japanese curry is to be avoided. It consists of a brown jelly with potatoes and a few carrot bits in it. On the side you get overcooked deep-fried pork or chicken and a helping of rice.

It's a very busy and very noisy restaurant so don't expect too much in the way of relaxed dining or attentive service.

Sushi is good, Service is good and staff friendly. But don't order Ramen noodles.

I was so excited when I found Ramen noodles are on the menu because not alot of restuarants dont have them. I have had Ramen noodles in Vancouver and it was great so didn't hesitated to order them at Nori. It was the worst noodles I ever had..... not even good... soup was too weak and NO fravor. I grew up in Japan so I know what is the right taste. They shouldn't have it on the menu if they don't know how to cook right...
