When someone at home mentions they are going to the mall, I’ll usually tag along simply to see what might be new or worth reviewing. The latest visit to Towne East Square had me walking around the food court. While there wasn’t much newness, there was Nori Japan; a Japanese restaurant offering bento boxes and sushi. It’s been in the mall for a while but a place I had yet to review.
7700 East Kellogg Drive
Wichita, KS 67207
Monday – Saturday: 11am – 7pm
Sunday: 12pm – 6pm
Their menu features Butterfly Shrimp, Chicken Teriyaki, Beef Teriyaki Bento Boxes, Sushi and more. There’s even the ability to order online!
There was a small bowl of teriyaki chicken for under $5 and then I purchased their spicy salmon sushi for $5.99.
For $4 and change, the chicken teriyaki dish wasn’t half bad. While I wouldn’t say it’s anywhere near as good as many others in town, I tempered my expectations and just chalked it up as decent mall food. The chicken was tender, a little on the fatty side, but pretty good.
Meanwhile, the sushi was at best average. It was like a salmon purée with some spicy sauce drizzled over the top. For what it’s worth, I enjoyed Dillons sushi more as something to compare it against.
Nori Japan wasn’t necessarily a bad meal. I’d consider going again only if I was at the mall and my guess is most customers probably were there out of convenience. It was definitely better though than much of the mall food I’ve had in my time.
