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'm going to say in no way is the food bad, overall the food prices and service is definately 4.5/5. My main issue was the meal I had, was more like Chinese food than japanese. Not a bad thing at all just at the time...More

Story short, best sushi restaurant in Bristol, the only thing they should improve is their ramen variation and quality

Nice place, friendly staff who coped well a visiting group of lively Japanese guests who were confused by some interpretations of Japanese food. Not fantastically authentic, and too much sugar in the sauces used across a number of different dishes.

Frankly, the worst food we've had for years. Tasteless tempora. Nasty noodles. Ghastly gyoza. Toxic waste wine. Nope, rather have eaten my trainers.

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.
