Time Out says

Sushi and Nori is not your average food court sushi train. Positioned near the escalator amidst the Emporium’s packed Café Court, there isn’t a soggy scallop or tired tuna in sight. Instead, complimentary bowls of thick, yellow pickled ginger and packets of wasabi frequently pass by on the train. There’s a serious amount of salmon on offer at Sushi & Nori, so go for the highlight: the grilled teriyaki and chilli salmon steak, which comes served on a bed of smashed avocado. The oysters, served with seaweed salad and topped with roe, are surprisingly fresh flavoured. The ‘chef’s special sauce’ that they’re served with seems to be the traditional ponzu, a soy and citrus dressing that brings out the oysters best qualities. Each new dish is announced in both English and Japanese, and is accompanied by a chorus of ‘hai!’ from the waitstaff. Sushi & Nori does struggle against its location – the bustle of the food court and the long line can make you feel a little rushed. The prices are also a little higher than other sushi trains, at $4.5 and $8.50 for deluxe plates.
