Sashimi, sushi, and tempura. When it comes to Japanese food in Kuala Lumpur, there are many Japanese restaurants and sushi bars to choose from at a wide variety of price points.
Today, at better sushi bars, fresh wasabi is standard, and chefs compete for the best and freshest ingredients served, proudly piling the urchin atop carefully pressed mounds of seasoned warm rice. And while the spendy sushi trend doesn’t look to be slowing down any time soon, the good news is that all this stellar seafood is inspiring heathy competition among local chefs, yielding a new slew of restaurants — like Nori Sushi — which strive to serve great fish at an accessible price.
With the new modern renovation, talented chefs, also inspirations from the traditional and modern recipe, we will like to invite you to join us to a relaxing journey of sushi feast. High quality sake of all kinds and seasonal menu will be introduced by our friendly and efficient servers to make sure everyone is spending their quality time here at Nori Sushi – a memorable one.
Nori Sushi’s executive chef, Joe San, grew up in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. He has numerous years of experience in the Japanese culinary scene and was trained under re-known Japanese head chef Ahagon Makatsu san in Japan. He has also worked as a Sushi Chef at The Sheraton Zimbabwe late 1994 to 1998 where he headed the Harare Sheraton, Japanese restaurant. Chef Joe has embarked his culinary journey to Thailand to worked with Oakwood Residence Hotel Japanese restaurant named Aonasa, and since then, this has inspired Chef Joe to incorporate those ethnic ingredients and spices into his Japanese dishes – curating modern Japanese cooking. In his dishes, guests will find ingredients like Thai chilli, farmed micro greens, and beets.

They have a selection of set lunches price at RM37 (for 3-course) and also ala carte to order from. And if you’re in the mood to leave it to the chef, check out their Omakase Dining priced from RM188, RM238 or RM268 per pax.
We enjoyed Omakase as they meticulously crafted a dinner for us, curated by a head sushi chef. Knowing I’m currently pregnant and still would like to enjoy sushis and Japanese food, they have selectively created some items suitable for my diet. Very thoughtful!
We were served with an Appetizer of trio: Salmon Cheese Fried, Tamago Mentai Yaki & Mix Jelly Fish with Avocado Salad. A trio of flavoursome items that ignited our palate almost immediately already.
