Noma is a Santa Monica staple because of its large list of inexpensive specialty rolls and an atmosphere that makes the most of its strip-mall location. It’s a great sushi lunch spot or place for dinner if you’re planning on an extreme night of karaoke at The Gaslite across the street. Everything is good here, from the tempura rolls to the best knock-off Nobu miso cod you’ll find. Don’t miss the Garlic Lover’s Albacore.
