Fun place to go
i recommend slightly dimming your lights for better vibes.
One of my favorite restaurants in the city. Great service, great food, incredibly friendly and fantastic value.
The best place in the world i owe you my life i will be eternally grateful , I could not choose a better place to propose to my girlfriend thank you very much guys see you soon.
My husband wanted ramen and we found this place in Opentable. The ramen was fantastic! Fantastic broth! Best I’ve had in a long time. The serving is relatively small, but made up for it in flavor and leave you room to have other stuff. Yakitori was also delicious. And don’t miss the chicken gyoza! Super nice staff, too.
Some of the best food we’ve had in the city. Incredible potstickers! The Wagyu beef and the giant red shrimp on a skewer cooked over Japanese charcoal was terrific. The rice ball was perfectly cooked - crunchy on the outside, moist on the inside, with a beautiful hint of seaweed. Really interesting and refreshing cocktails to start. An incredible plum wine to finish. Service was great!
Food was ok but portions for the price is not great. Easy 50$ a head which I find a bit much for this kind of food.
Lovely service and delicious food!
Noren Izakaya was an amazing birthday dinner spot. Great cocktails, food, and service for our group of 8. We definitely over ordered but everything was delicious and we tried almost everything. We definitely got special treatment as we were the biggest and loudest group on a quiet Wednesday night but the servers and the proprietress did a fabulous job showcasing their hospitality and amazing selection of yakitori: the full gamut of chicken parts, bacon wrapped asparagus, scallops, and mochi, wagyu and soooo much more!! I’m so glad to have a new yakitori spot in the area.
A bit pricy for a full meal (expected for North Beach due to rent cost) but it was delicious and service was fantastic! Will be back for sure
We brought a couple of friends to Noren Izakaya since it was new and we generally like Izakaya-style food. The food was good, but not outstanding. Nice sake and shochu. The service was excellent. The decor is uninspired by okay, but the big big problem is the noise. There was super loud music, even after they (graciously) turned it down a bit at our request. "Energetic" doesn't capture the noise level--it was so loud we came away exhausted from the noise and trying to hear each other. All the hard surfaces amplified the racket from the music plus all the diners having to shout to be heard. I'll grant you, we are in an older demographic and like to converse. So I gather we are not their target market. They seem like nice people, and I wish I could give a more positive review.
Great range of small plates as well as ramen. We had a few of the skewers (top marks for the chicken breast and short ribs!) and the bacon wrapped dates and scallops (also super yum!) plus the edamame and shishito peppers. Decent selection of sakes to choose from. The service was great -- informative, friendly and efficient! It's got some good elements for absorbing the noise of other diners and music that's not loud, which means you you can actually have a conversation while eating without shouting!
Bottom line: Nice neighborhood restaurant, and an unusual find in the usually Italian-focused North Beach area. I would have gone back the next day if they were open. I dined during the "soft opening" of the restaurant. The menu contains some interesting variations on standard izakaya fare, all well prepared. I always get saba shioyaki when I see it on the menu, and Noren's was perfectly cooked. The service was friendly, like a good neighborhood joint. However, they were short-handed on service the night I visited, so some dishes did not arrive warm. I can't wait to go back after the grand opening, when things get up to speed.
