Noma is a deceivingly large place with lots of tables and a sushi bar. Lunch crowd is fairly large so get there early. Quick service The shrimp tempura and eel roll was a large 8 piece serving. Rice was tender and just a thin layer not overshadowing the fish. Eel was fresh and BBQ'd to perfection. Wish I had time... More

We had sushi here for dinner and it was delicious. We also had the sesame chicken salad and it was very tasty. I should also note that they did not skimp on the chicken within the salad. If you order the sushi, we highly recommend the yellowtail. The waiter was also very attentive and pleasant. So if you are in... More

This restaurant has amazing sushi rolls and bonita boxes. If your with people who don't like sushi they too can have an amazing meal. My favorite is the rice cakes with spicy tuna.

Excellent and consistent food and fairly fast service. The only draw back is that it is dark inside which is not always ideal for a bright sunny day. I go back over and over for the food.

Friendly & helpful service. Dish recommendation: chirashi sushi. Only downside was that salmon had a bit more fat that usual.

I've been to Noma a few times and have enjoyed each and every visit. It's a casual, convenient neighborhood restaurant that hits the spot. Onsite parking is free, but is limited and can be tricky. There's also metered street parking, or you can walk up the block and park gratis. No valet is available. The service has always been good,... More

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighbourhood Profile
Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers, roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa Monica pier spins high above the water, while park revelers scream with delight riding the roller coaster. Inland from the beach, Third Street Promenade bustles with shoppers and street performers, where every block seems to have a musical or acrobatic act drawing crowds giving Santa Monica both the feeling of a laid-back beach town and a major commercial hub.
