This is my third time going there. I have yet to be disappointed with the food. Everything is great. Great rolls and everything tastes fresh.

Food is way over priced for what you get. I got the churrasco which is a basic staple dish. They managed to overcook the meat and it had no seasoning. The mashed yuca was litteelly just that, matches yucca. I would think they would want to make a heavy attach a little lighter but alas no. I also got a rainbow roll and the crab was or shrimp in the roll was so like dry or overcooked. It made the whole roll unapitizing and dry. This sushi was not worth it. My date got the ninja bandeja which was an assortment of meats, rice , and beans. The only good thing on that dish was the beans and I have a suspicion that it was like those premade from a can or whoever makes the beans can just make it season correctly. The rice on this dish was the worse. It was undercooked and crispy; almost like what you would get a bottom of a pot of rice or something.
I will say the drinks weren't too bad. We got a half pitcher of margarita.

This is an amazing place! We have been there twice and not only is the food amazing but the ambiance is beautiful. They setup is very well done and the food is always fresh. The Dominican/Asian fusion makes all the dishes super delicious! Definitely on our regular list of places to go.

I had high expectations for this place but it was really mediocre. It’s a new place so it’s nice and clean but it’s really bright inside and everyone on the outside can see you.

Service was a little strange. Our waiter was nice but I couldn’t understand him and then he was saying something in Arab to me (and I’m Asian). Every time he came by he forgot his notepad so he would go grab it and then come back like 5 mins later.

We ordered cocktails, they were really good and we order 4 different rolls. Our rolls were fine (we got lucky and went on their $10 day). I thought it was strange that they only gave us one sauce bowl to share though. Each person should have their own! Once we got our rolls, no one came back to check on us. We had to ask the busboy for our check.

Here’s the thing...if you want sushi, there’s a lot more places to go that’ll be better. That’s it!

Ambiance was beautiful . Bar was great, they’re in house drink tasted great. Bathrooms were clean and now with covid seating they properly separated us from other guests. However most of the food did not par up to its looks. We had the calamari and tuna takati for appetizers which were great . I can’t say so much for their main entree’s as we didn’t order any but I would not recommend if you’re looking to go out and eat good sushi. I get it’s fusion rolls Latin/Japanese fusion but how it was prepared was far from authentic characteristics of sushi. The idea is appealing but the execution missed the mark for me. The quality was poor. Sushi rice was hard and overall majority flavorless , rice to filling ratio was inconsistent . Too much rice way too little filling. I would compare it to the type you get that are pre-made & pre-packaged in grocery stores. Of the 7 rolls ordered only 2 of the rolls were decent. Pricing is way up there. Ordered Cuban empanadas paid $10 for 2 regular size empanadas found in local shops. Overall would not be returning. But like I said I’ve never tried the entrees so would recommend ppl to go for experience, just keep in mind the sushi was a bust.

My visits to this restaurant never fails, I like to try different things from the menu every time. I love to see El Ninja, it makes the visit feel special and that he is proud to see the restaurant doing his purpose. I notice that sometimes the flavor on the meat or the mash potatoes/yuca varies, sometimes its on point and sometimes it might need a lil more salt or seasoning but thats no big deal for me since I can always have it fix with the server. The driks are really good, I love the Ninjarita and the Morirsoñando #Hands Up I went for my Birthday and my friends left the place with a perfect experience after reading some bad reviews they were a little skeptical about going. Can't wait to try some mofongo! Props to the Fukin Ninja

The food is amazingly good!! My boyfriend had the mar y tierra (churrasco, lobster tail, shrimp and yuca mashed) so yummy!!! I had three types of sushi; rainbow, la broa & shrimp tempura. It was all very fresh and delicious. We will definitely be back! Traveled all the way from Boston and it was so worth it!

El Ninja is a very kind chef and attentive with customers. I went there for the first time with my best friend and we had a great time. The food was AMAZINGLY DELICIOUS. One thing I recommend is to research the menu before you go because of Covid19 the time is limited. I’m going back soon.
