The sashimi never fails to please. We found out that they have stopped serving this at lunch but said if we were happy to wait around 45 minutes they could do this for us. Service was great and we were very pleased to have waited for the Sashimi as it was so fresh and absolutely delicious and very well presented... More

We ended up choosing a variety of different dishes to share (ordered way too much) but thoroughly enjoyed every mouthful of our fresh, tasty food. Loved it... More

A great night out for the two of us started with a warm welcome back. We don't visit as often as we would like. We tried some old favourites but also a new one - the Japanese Chicken Omelette - fantastic decision. Entire experience absolutely epic - and with no reservation

Not having a Japanese restaurant locally, it was great to be able to take our teens to experience a genuine Japanese restaurant. Relaxed & friendly service with a delicious variety of food on offer. A memorable evening.

We enjoyed our meal at Sushi Ninja as there were plenty of choices to mix and find an option for everyone. I would however have liked some of the options on the take away menu also available as dinner options as some items are quite expensive (having said that though, they are very authentic) We visited this restaurant about 8...
