I normally don’t do this because I work in the service industry but my last time visiting was the worst experience and we’ve been eating here since it was called ninja 6 years ago. Their was 6 of us and it was my boyfriends birthday. We ordered the Korean BBQ combos and my friends ordered off the regular menu. Our drinks took at least 10 - 12 minutes every time we ordered. 2 of the drinks we ordered never even came and we had to ask twice where they were. My friend never received his food and the server never noticed. My other friend was missing her soup and we had to ask if that was ever coming out because I’m assuming it was never rang in. My boyfriends rice had plastic in it which we told our server and all he had to say was “sorry”. We ordered combo A which comes with kimchi and the seaweed salad and we never got that nor did our server even notice we didn’t get it. He was too busy SITTING down at another Korean bbq table across from us entertaining what we assumed was his friends from how comfortable he was. When I told him we never received the side dishes that came with the combo he once again said sorry. When he brought the bill 22% was already added and for missing food, having plastic in our rice and taking 10 minutes for a drink when it wasn’t even busy is absolutely insane to me. To compensate for all his mistakes he brought over a free fried ice cream which was nice but when I’m spending $150 and they’re is that many mistakes it didn’t matter at that point. We asked for a manager and no one ever came over. Don’t think we’ll be back which is really sad because it was our favorite sushi spot.

I’ve been here multiple tines and have always enjoyed it. The food is very good. They are on the expensive side so be prepared. Very noisy inside. Sometimes you can’t hear the conversation at your table. Our server was very sweet and attentive.

Beef negamaki and scallop appetizers were excellent. Entrees were disappointing. Music was very loud when we arrived. We probably would it go back.

Food was a disappointment.
Nori is the worst quality.
Shrimp in the volcano dish was underdone. Could not taste the curry in the rice.
The large portions of food do not make up for the lack of quality. Will definitely not go back.

No parking (which is insanity) we would have left but my daughter had her heart set on going there for her bday. Service was very very slow. The bbq was a unique experience but would not return. Not worth the hassle

Impossible parking. Took 3 girls to sit us down despite our reservation and nobody being there. Sitting is worn out, no cushioning. Service and food were fast but the waiter did not answer a lot of my questions. I could have ordered more but he seemed annoyed with my questions. Portions were good and ok value. But the taste wasn’t the best. We went there because a lot of people recommend it but seriously don’t see why. The food is pretty basic and forgettable

The service was not as expected for a place that you will spend at least $100. for two on the BBQ grill, there were no refills on the drinks they did not bring out everything ordered which we had to ask for a couple of times. Once the order was taken we only seen the server only when I called her over about the missing items. We may have just had an off night, the food was very good, this was an anniversary dinner and we are use to superior service from the competitor but I wanted to try a new place.
I would go back just to see if as I said this was an off night but if it's the same next time that will be it for me.

We decided to do the barbecue which was a mistake. While they brought our items out they basically left us alone for about an hour and never came back to our table. We had ordered several items and because the barbecue is so small and there were 4 of us it took a very long time for our food to cook. When I got home I had terrible stomach pains and got sick. Would not recommend the barbecue.

Sushi and service is so-so
With many other excellent sushi options in Boca we would recommend another restaurant for sushi.

Note: The grill table dinners are fun and will be back for that

The service was slow- took quite sometime to get our drinks, the restaurant was not even half full.
We were told the shumai will take some time as it takes longer to cook (never heard that before) it came well done. Drinks were fair, beer wasn’t that cold.
Sushi was ok.

I understand that we we next to a grill but the overall temperature was too hot and it was very uncomfortable. The service was extremely slow and we had to find our server twice, the Bar bill would have been much higher had she come to the table every once in a while.

Beautiful restaurant and creative food. Server was very nice. The Menu has something for everyone and it’s a Great location.

The only thing stopping a 5 star rating and only negative was service itself. They forgot one appetizer and one entree but they brought both out when told.. The biggest issue was The glasses of water as well as beverages were continuously empty. Maybe Hire a busboy to keep tables clean and fill water glasses. Easily fixable issue but very important.

That being said I would definitely go again and give it another shot because the food and place itself were very good.

I came here to celebrate my birthday and told the hostess in advance a few days ago when making my reservation. However, during my sitting I was never told happy birthday and never got a desert :(

While the food was very good and extensive choices, the noise level in the place was over the top. There were several birthday celebrations and being that they were mostly kids it was almost impossible to talk to our other diners. If making a reservation I suggest calling the restaurant to find out if they are hosting any parties during the time you want to diner.

When it’s smoldering hot and multiple customers ask to close the doors and turn on AC it’s probably a good idea to listen. You cost yourselves over $500 in revenue as a result and questionable whether we will dine at your establishment again.
