We like coming here, it's a refreshing change from the usual chinese and Indian restaurants in the area. We have always had really good sashimi and tataki. The fish is fresh and second to none. The staff are friendly too.

My friends and I were craving for Japanese food, and we found Noa on the internet. We arrived at the restaurant around 7PM, we mentioned that we did not make any reservation, therefore I assume that the service prioritized the reservations over the drop-ins. The...More

I visited Noa last night for the first time following in from a recommendation and was really impressed. We went for the set menu B and could not fault any of the dishes. The tempura and chicken karaage came out fresh, piping hot and tasty....More

The food was wonderful - we’re big sushi fans so we’re not hard to please in a Japanese restaurant. I highly recommend the crunchy rolls and spicy rolls - a nice authentic spin on usual sushi. Not too pricy either considering it’s in the middle...More

I don't have the new phone number but I would suggest that you just turn up. They only reopened last week so they were not at all busy when we went.

Bold, Exciting and Spectacular this is the new NOA Japanese. Born in 2009 Noa Japanese has been serving Clifton for over 5 years. But things have since changed. Nothing was left untouched to ensure the success of this huge Japanese beast that has laid dormant in a quite basement in the heart of Clifton, Bristol. "Noa Japanese has awoken!" We have changed our menu, decor, style and music. And have created a place which better reflects our passion for Japanese food just for you. Come, step inside and experience fun Japanese dining.
