Noka

Posted by Staff / Listed on June 14, 2012 / review policy

Noka TorontoNoka is a newly opened sushi spot in the Annex found right next to Sushi on Bloor. Formerly Sushi 101, this location seems to bank on the line-ups and overflow from their popular neighbour. They've got the goods with a $5.95 lunch special and sake bomb happy hours twice daily.

This is my bf and my go to sushi restaurant in the annex. Before noka came, we were going to new gen most of the time and had tried out all the other sushi joints between spadina & bathurst. This place is such a refreshing change!

First, their sushi rolls come warm - the rice isn't cold (or frozen) like you get with most other places who prep their sushi way ahead of time. Their menus are not generic (no bentos here!) and they offer a happy hour menu which is pretty awesome.

Their prices are comparable & their lunch special is the best on the block (you can easily walk away full having spent just $6 + tax and tip) and they even have a 10% discount for students with id.

We went back to new gen last weekend 'cause I was craving some salmon fried rice, and it became pretty clear that we're not going back there any more. The complementary salad from noka is better than new gen's by far & the taste for their items are pretty much at another level.

If I had more thumbs, I'd offer more than two thumbs up for this place. And I've never written any reviews on here but seeing that 1 star gave me pause & I just had to offer my opinion!

Great food. Miso soup comes with REAL seaweed. Not just a flake. You an actually chew on it. Service was great and the food was fast. We got seated right away instead of uncomfortably waiting in the doorway of Sushi on Bloor next door. I will come back.

Wow. This place always surprises me with their horrible service. shitty attitudes and overall miserable staff. Their sushi is alright, but who ever heard of a 1 order only of sashimi? Its not that hard to find good sushi with good service. I suggest going somewhere else.
