Nori Nori goes against what I believe in. It's a Sushi Buffet in Sandy Springs that is such a massive operation that if should be a complete disaster. And somehow they pull it off.
I know, when you think of an asian buffet, this type of establishment pops into mind.
But this is really what it looks like.
And the exterior presentation tells you your are entering a great establishment.
The Sushi Menu is pretty extensive and they make some really good specialty rolls as well. The hot and cold non sushi items give it a rounded menu that doesn't make you exclude the non sushi eater, which all of us have in our groups, right? There is a sauteed curried squid that may be my favorite thing on the "non" sushi side.
Now, the one thing you can't escape is that it is a buffet. Nobody is getting your food for you and it eats into your conversation time (which may be a plus at times too!).
But it is $17.50 at lunch, so you do pay for what you get. I have no problem with that as long as they deliver.
So I would basically call this a sophisticated buffet. It's the buffet that can do it all. Basically, the LeBron James of buffets, though I would avoid a sushi buffet in Cleveland, though Cleveland has some great culinary tradition of it's own!
Come hungry and try everything that you can. It's worth the trip and definitely worth the price.
