Great food great prices always busy so make reservations. Closed Mondays and Tuesdays except on holidays they are open. Very friendly and close seating . It's a bit loud in there but it's worth it.😎

Fresh seafood, fantastic sushi, great service. Have dined here many times, never been disappointed. Reservations are a good idea as most times it's very busy.

Very exciting restaurant in Nanaimo. My wife and I tried the sashimi and the flaming roll. They were excellent. Service was fast and atmosphere is addictive. Very enjoyable. Will definitely re-visit.

This is one of the best sushi restaurants that I have ever eaten at, including those we tried during a visit to Japan. (and a lot cheaper than Japan!) Fish & Chips rolls are awesome, and the sashimi is top notch. Always busy, make a reservation or be there when they open.

Service and food was great. The servers were on watch and no waiting. the setting reminds you of Japan. Tempura and dynamite rolls out of this world. You get what you pay for and this is the real deal.

Ask the sever to recommend dishes, they have a number of things not on the menu and very yummy. We took my adult son and family eight in all for birthday dinner, the restaurant was very busy but the food came out of the kitchen in a steady stream everybody had a great meal. I recommend Nori to everybody. Great... More
