My husband and I were looking for a new place to add to our list where we could dine on Saipan. I tried the garlic steak. It was tough,overpriced and lacked seasoning. My husband ordered something but I cant remember what he ordered...... it was that average. We won't be back, but it is good we know. The search is... More

I waited for over an hour and a... More

This is the spot for all things garlic. It is a small busy restaurant and we were turned away the first time we tried to eat there. Like many things in Saipan, it may be helpful to speak Japanese. The food was internationally great, with reasonably priced items especially in the appetizer menu. We ordered multiple appetizers and shared them... More

I really like this restaurant. They have some simple yet delicious pasta dishes that are a sort of Japanese/Italian fusion (think olive oil and soy sauce) and their beef oyster sauce is quite tasty. But the best thing about Nin-Nikuya aka 2298 Garlic Grotto Restaurant (the restaurant has 4 names, if you understand Japanese you'll know why) is their TUNA... More
