My roommate and I were really looking forward to trying ninja and especially so today since sushi fest was such a bummer. We arrived and we're coldly greeted by the bartender who asked "bar or table?" We said we preferred a table and he huffed "it'll be a while." We decided to sit at the bar instead (we were the...

Shockingly bad service. You can literally wave your hand back and forth and not get noticed here. I had a single California roll arrive so late that it went straight into a to go box. It was taking so long that I repeatedly tried to get the waitresses attention. From what I hear, the owners deduct credit card fees from... More

The first thing we ordered was a salad with sashimi, cucumber, avocado, and a jalapeno dressing which was excellent. Next, the tuna tartare which was also very good. Then everything went downhill with the sushi. Got the devils roll, rainbow, and the spicy lemon drop roll. Rainbow was fine, spicy lemon drop roll said it had jalapenos in it which... More

I've been eating at Ninja since they were in the little house on Jeannette St. Although I still like this restaurant and eat here frequently, I remember it being much better when it was in that little house. Maybe it is just because I was a teenager and hadn't eaten at too many Japanese restaurants. The current location is ok.... More

The inside of Ninja isn't anything special or pretty, but the food they serve is some of the best in town. My favorites include the ninja salad, the firefighter roll, and the rainbow roll. If you order enough sushi, they'll bring you a free soup!

I used to be a regular, but I moved. My wife and I use Ninja as our measuring stick of great sushi. Our October visit was awesome. The crunchy roll was so good I messaged my good friend who introduced me to the roll to tell him that if I had to choose I would choose the crunchy roll over... More

We were super excited to see the vegetarian menu and all the wonderful options! Food and service were both great! Glad we found this place on our trip to NO!

A nice little place but not much atmosphere, the food was okay nothing special and a little on the pricy side. They had been open for several months when I went thought that it would have been better.

We have been going to ninja for a couple of years and the food is always great. We love sitting at the sushi bar and watching the food being prepared. The sushi is always freash and the service is always great. I love the salmon box and my wifes favorite is the lemon drop roll. The seaweed salad that they... More

My family has been going to Ninja Restaurant for over 10 years (back when they were on Jeannette Street) as regular loyal customers (1 - 2 times a week)! Tonight we had a shocking experience and will NEVER EAT THERE again. I personally do not care for the atmosphere because it is dirty! Cobwebs in the ceiling corners, they finally... More
