My favourite Bristol restaurant
"I love this restaurant. Super friendly staff who make you feel welcome, delicious food and cocktails, brilliant atmosphere and great value for money. This has become my favourite place to eat in Bristol. Can't recommend it enough"
A+ for food, A++ for cocktails
"Went in the other day with friends to take advantage of their 2 courses for £10 deal and can't recommend it enough! Great food, good atmosphere and some very nice staff. Was meant to just go in for a quick bite but ended up staying for cocktails. Recommend the Gyoza's and Chicken Katsu Curry for food and definitely the Zen Garden Martini and Millenium Punch to drink. Go and see for yourself and thank me later!!"
Fantastic every single time
"Nomu nomu nomu. What can I say? I adore you!!! I’ve visited multiple times and there’s a reason...
1) Team member ALWAYS super friendly and up for a chat. Very lovely handsome gentleman who works there whose name I’m sure my girlfriend would love to know... he makes fresh vibrant and mouth watering cocktails to die for. He’s very genuine and always knows the right time to approach the table
2) OUTSTANDING food. Ironically my girlfriend doesn’t actually like raw fish so it says a lot about the restaurant that this is still one of her favourite places to go... there is plenty of other delicious things to try on the menu apart from sushi so people should be afraid if they don’t like sushi, give the place a try!!
3) LOVELY atmosphere warm, charming and comfortable
4) GREAT VALUE for money.
If I could just hint that the lovely gentleman should take a paid day off, he’s always there working hard!! Thanks NOMU you will be seeing us very soon."
"Ate here with my boyfriend this evening and we were both talking about the meal all the way home. The place itself has lots of interesting japanese art, paintings, sake and whisky boxes dotted around the place. Lots to look at while you wait and definetly some Instagram opportunities!! We both had a beer and I ordered their 3 small plates/sushi for £14 (deep fried prawns, pork gyoza and dynamite rolls) and my partner the black bean tofu and some veggie gyoza. We got the edamame to snack on aswell. I thought I might have still been hungry afterwards but the portions were very generous. The tempura batter was really light and the prawns huge! Really enjoyed the dynamite rolls as was something I hadn't tried before. The owner Ken was very helpful with suggesting some Japanese whiskys to try and they were amazing. So good. He really knows his stuff and they have a huge selection! The meal was very reasonably priced as well and the other staff lovely and friendly too. Will definetly return and will be my go to Japanese spot! Highly recommend."
"Visited Bristol for the first time in a long time and was overwhelmed by the amount of eateries, so much so we didn't bother to plan where to spend the evening... And it was a good job too as me and my partner 'stumbled' on to Nomu and was instantly impressed by the simple yet pleasing ambience, the staff, and the gorgeous food offering... We were only planning to stay for a 'quick bite' and a drink, instead we ended up staying for a few hours because of the amazingly comfortable atmosphere! ... Whole-heartedly recommend!!! :)"
"Popped in last Friday, thinking I would just have a drink and a nibble, but was so pleasantly surprised by the relaxed atmosphere and the look of the place that I ended up staying for dinner. I had the 3 small eats. Loved the tempura prawns and the dumplings! Really nice to get a pint of Asahi, a rarity and a great beer. Lovely staff too...I could see me turning into a regular!"
Lovely Authentic Food
"We booked this place to celebrate my partners birthday. We've walked past it many times & always meant to visit. We were greeted by happy staff who were attentive throughout our visit. We started with 2 types of gyozo to share. They were crispy on the outside & oh so fluffy inside. Delicious! Our mains were also delicious, both of us opting for noodle dishes. The restaurant was closing early for a big party that was taking over the place later but at no time did we feel hurried to leave. I'll definitely be back here!"
