Loved this place for my first Japanese eating experiance. Lunch is best as gets more expensive in the evening and is enjoyable relaxing for lunch.

This restaurant is my go to for authentic japanese food. Food are always fresh and beautifully presented. The portion size is small like more japanese food so we always end up with a big bill at the end.

Nori is one of many Japanese restaurants dotted along Parnell Road. It has been there for a few years now and still going but standards have slipped with respect to service. The restaurant is at the corner of Garfield Street and Parnell Road - an easy location to find. There are car parks for patrons in the parking building just... More

The Nori Japanese Restaurant was recommended by a Parnell local as being great. When we arrived we were warmly greeting and shown to our table. At the next table was group of 8 Japanese nationals – always very assuring to see nationals at an ethnic restaurant as they certainly know quality food. The décor is modern and largely in black...

Parnell is one of Auckland's busy restaurant precincts, and you have to be pretty sharp to win regular customers around here. Nori has been going a few years now and has always maintained a busy lunchtime clientele who come for the Bento Lunchbox, or the Sushi or other dishes. Quick, inexpensive, great service and delicious. For day visitors who are... More

This has been our go to Japanese place for a year or so now, and have never felt let down by the quality of food, or service. However, of late they have been advertising on coupons for dinner discounts, so my wife and I decided to have a special dinner there one Saturday evening. Food was as always very good,... More

a good selection of hot & cold dishes familiar in most japanese restaurants but limited set meal options. Our tempura, sushi and sashimi were all excellent. Service is pleasant and unobtrusive. There is enough choice of beer, wine and sake to accompany your meal.
