Nori's Saimin & Snacks
This out-of-the-way, unmarked eatery requires some looking to find it, but it is well worth it. Some of the more inventive sushi offerings on Big Island is served here, as well as special furikake scallops, consummate saimin of every stripe, chicken and beef sticks, homemade soups, and superb fried noodles. They are open daily for lunch and dinner.
My daughter and I just had dinner there tonight. The service is slow and the shop could use sprucing up but we love the food!
It's made just how I like it, local style. They are usually busy, so yes, they could probably use more help... but, so what?!
Our meal was worth the wait. If we wanted fast food, we would have gone to K's, Blane's or Cafe 100. This is a RESTAURANT, not a drive-in, so don't compare the prices to a window service joint. Besides, the owner, Bethann... she's famous, man!!!
Service is slow. Food is average for the price. Don't not eat here unless you have time to kill, expect to wait at least 30 minutes for you food from the time it is order. Don't not order take out unless you place order ahead of time at least 30 minutes.
Nori's is the best grinds on BI. I'm glad that it is hard to find and I hope nobody else finds it. It's not a touristy place, thank god. The girl's can be nice sometimes certainly not always but who cares. The saimin can't be beat!! Hilo style won ton min, special (w/chicken stick) is the best, but everything is onolicious and fresh. Also for Hilo this place is open late Who cares about the ambiance and service.
There isn't a whole lot of dining variety in Hilo, but there are a few gems. Tucked away behind offices across from the Cost-U-Less is Nori's, one of those gems.
There's something for everyone, with burgers for the unadventurous, saimin for the chilly, an array of salads for the vegeterians, and the massive Big Plate for the hungry. The Strawpia Pie is delectable, as is the Chocolate Mochi a la Mode. My personal favorite: the Pork Cutlet.
Go to Nori's. Sometimes the service is a little slow, but that's because the waitresses do most of the work themselves. As long as you have a little time on your hands, you won't be dissapointed. They're open relatively late on the weekends for the late night munchies.
Very poor service, BBQ chicken sticks was served cold, took 10 mins to receive water
after meal was served. Meals were over priced
and greasy. I have eaten at Nori's 3 times,
each time was worse than the last.
