NORI Japanese restaurant

Spare in name; spare in nature. On the lower end of Parnell Road. This sleek individual’s stone frontage and bright, low-key neon attract the eye. A modern take on Japanese food. The menu keeps things simple for western eyes with food classed as Light Servings, Mains, and Side Dishes.
This is further broken down into sub-headings. Under Light Servings, check out the kushiage finger food − available as single skewers, or in a combination. Salads are tataki or Japanese. You choose, not only the food item but (with the Japanese salad) the style of dressing. Sashimi, you can order singly or as a plate. Sushi : rolled − either thin or medium − and nigiri. Both the latter are available as mains. Rather than use Japanese names, items are classed according to the foodstuff, eg : salmon, tuna, eel, prawn, white fish…
The mains feature Nori’s fusion style of cuisine, favouring sauces. The innovative stone grill main is excellent. Check out also their tuna steak, teriyaki, tempura or udon. Under Side Dishes, try the delicious pan-fried udons. The small-sized chicken dishes make perfect children’s meals.
There is a good wine list and, for the very hungry, the Dinner Course set.

About Japanese Restaurant Guide

We admire the effort and the confidence of the Japanese restaurants here in New Zealand. We also look forward to the new styles of food and the creations they will come up with as they continue to progress individually, and as they blend these elements with New Zealand cooking culture.
