Nori at The Villa

"Amazing experience, delicious food served by an amazing staff"

With panoramic views of Balluta Bay and a first class menu, Nori is one of the best locations on the island for a good mix of alfresco Asian food; perfectly complimented with a super cool vibe. A post work DJ winds down the outside heated terrace between 5 and  8 pm on Fridays, spinning a more relaxed groove to savour the sights and authentic flavours. An extensive wine list covers the most palatable vineyards but if a cocktail with an Asian influence  is more your flavour, Nori has it covered! Efficient staff are warm, friendly and passionate about the job.
The food menu is an excellent representation of the diversity of Asian food. Served in starter portions (with starter prices) the emphasis is to formulate variety. A range of Japanese dumplings, beef dim-sum or Pork & lemongrass gyoza are served in bamboo trays, Thai skewers of Lamb satay or tempura fish are excellent as are the Indian curries served with rice, poppadum’s and naan. Great vegetarian options like the Korean miso tofu & vegetable stir-fry or sesame battered vegetables for a far-east fry up. Get a great selection of all these dishes and more with a mixed platter in all regional styles. The desserts are exceptional and beautifully presented. Kaffir lime fried ice cream with lychee syrup is wonderful or try a crispy ginger fondant spring rolls, totally awesome. Modestly priced excellent food with a totally cool ambience.
