It must be mentioned that there is nothing that comes close to Sushi Ninja. Without mentioning other names, nothing reaches Sushi Ninja's level of freshness, presentation and innovation at this Php500 to Php1K price point.

During my last visit here, we made sure to try nothing but their Poke bowls. The one in front is the Maguro and Sake poke bowl. The one behind it is the Spicy Sake poke bowl.

Both of them, very very good! I can't rave about it enough how it hits all the right points on being a great dish. The sliced fish used here, you can really taste how fresh it is. The sauce, both are flavorful but not overpowering. The presentation, you can see how good that looks. Very effortless to take a beautiful shot using my iPhone.

I usually dine here on a weekday night because the place is not that packed. It really is the perfect way to end a heavy work day. Sushi Ninja really is one good reason South dining one of a kind. Yushoken for the ramen and then Sushi Ninja for the sashimi. Heaven.

This is just the first of many more visits to this restaurant which serves both traditional and modern Japanese food. Their extensive sushi dishes are uniquely prepared by Chef Matt Floro Tanjuakio, who studied the art of sushi-making at the California Sushi Academy in LA. It is interesting that some of the varieties have European influences with the use of ingredients like Spanish ham, Gouda and truffle oil. I am not a big fan of ebi tempura but theirs was simply one of the best I've tried.

I looooooooove this place! Omg! I'm so inlove with their own variation of sushi!

The place is small but we came here around 4:30pm for an early dinner, stayed for hours then left with FULL STOMACH! Can't wait to try more of their sushi and others. Wuhoo!

Oh, btw. They have the bigger sushis! Hehe.

Came from a good round of golf in Laguna so we were all so hungry! Heard a lot of golf stuff about this place - super lucky that we were seated immediately as apparently there's always a line at this place. It's basically a more sossy version of Omakase, albeit with better quality stuff. I would def come back to pig out here again. 127843127833

On this particular Sunday, we found ourselves going to Alabang. We rarely go to Alabang being Pasig dwellers, so I really make it a point to get a restaurant recommendation each time we get there. My friend recommends Sushi Ninja in Westgate!

Parking is easy and cheap since it is Alabang anyway. We luckily found a ready table for 2 despite it being Sunday night. Most of the tables were reserved already!

For our orders for the night, I ordered Marunouchi-Toshi, (Kani, mango, ebikko with nori powder) Shake Poke (Hawaiian Salmon salad) and the Hotate Sashimi. The wife ordered another Toshi, the Asakusa Toshi which has her favorite unagi as part of the ingredients.

A toshi is a deep fried lightly battered sushi rice ball. Placed on top are the choice ingredients you choose for your order. Think of it as a new way of doing sushi!

I would recommend the place for sushi and sashimi enthusiasts! I'd like to say that I'd want to go back but since it's in Alabang, it may be a while since we get back there! Total damage with the mango shake was around Php1500. Not the most expensive but not the cheapest place either, but if you want to try a new place and a different take on Japanese food - it's a place worth going to!

My college barkada agreed to my request of having our next meet-up in the south instead of the north. They travelled all the way here, braving the traffic for a quick brunch. They wanted me to suggest a restaurant but I didn’t want to be blamed for a bad experience. Given this, I offered that we try a new restaurant, a restaurant no one has tried before. We chose sushi ninja but made a rookie mistake by not checking their opening time. Apparently, the restaurant opened at 11:30 am. Some of us arrived at 11 am and waited outside the restaurant. Good thing the restaurant was accommodating enough to let them in at 11:15 am, probably because they know how unbearable the summer heat has been recently.

Highlights:
1) Uni Sashimi: I love Uni. Although serving was just right, taste was the key driver for the performance of this dish.
2) Hiroshima Maki: One of the cheapest options under their modern sushi selection. The spicy salmon was fresh and it went well with the kani and spicy mayo. Although, you might not like the texture of the kani they used.
3) Nagasaki Maki: Spicy tuna again but accompanied with ebi tempura and sliced tuna and negi. Yum.

Lowlights:
1) Tempura: Didn’t like their breading. I prefer a softer outer layer.
2) Chahan: Found it a bit too moist.
All in all, it was a good restaurant experience. It ended with us gushing over a celebrity who was apparently a customer as well during our stay. By gushing, I meant rushing out of the restaurant to confirm if we were not dreaming. I think that says a lot about the staff, with our table still having as much attention as other tables. Staff were very attentive throughout our stay.

That’s it for now. Take care everyone.

After going through the traffic from libis to alabang yesterday, we decided to treat ourselves with our favorite Japanese food. We ordered hiroshima and california maki, both are equally yummy and generous in serving. We'll definitely come back for more!

Sushi Ninja is just 10 minutes walk from my office but I only been here twice. I fell in love with the place since it has this modern take of a regular japanese restaurant with some wooden crates used as lampshades and cute ninja warriors on their wall.

We are just lucky we got some seats at around 6pm on a monday. The service is a bit slow but its understandable knowing that the place is full.

We basically focused on their Kindaiteki Sushi (Modern Sushi). We tried their Sakura Maki, Shinjuku Maki and Covarrubias Maki. All are beautifully plated and are perfect for sharing!

The one on the photo is their Covarrubias Maki. It's their spanish inspired maki with chorizo and tempura flakes. The Sakura Maki is their salmon, tamago and cream cheese maki. My favorite is the Shinjuku Maki which is spicy tuna, unagi and tamago which is deep fried topped with kani and ebiko. Juicy in the middle and crunchy on the outside!

Next visit we will definitely try their Poke and the beautiful Toshi Sushi. Thank you Chef Matthew Floro Tanjuakio for this wonderful creation! 128523128079128079🏽128079🏿

Food - ✔️
Service - ✖️
Food was good especially their California Maki and Tempura. Service was bad because the bill was faster than the food service and they'd give it to you even without asking for it. Also, they'd take away the plates and clean your table while you're still there and have no plans of leaving yet.

Love that they have poke on the menu! It's a great alternative to sashimi if you want a flavorful taste. And it's really yummy!

Oh my maki! Didn't realize that the portions here are ginormous! You're totally getting your money's worth. We had the California Maki, Hiroshima Maki, Tori Teriyakidon, Miso soup and Ebi Tempura. Damage was Php 1,375 for two, without drinks. But because of the serving size, it felt like we ate for 4 people 128513

Taste-wise, I'd have to agree with the previous reviews - the food is good but nothing stood out that truly wowed me. But that doesn't mean I won't be coming back - very eager to try their Toshi sushi.

Service was alright, our original server (didn't get his name) was very cordial - he went to check on us to see how we were enjoying our food and even told is that he was going on break and will be endorsing us to his peers. His "sub" wasn't as personable though but it was still alright.

Ambiance was quirky - love the Japanese street vibe with the cartoony accents such as shurikens on the wall and painted tiny ninjas climbing up the menu board. I just found it odd that the big wooden vat where the cooked rice is stored is placed on the bar right beside the entrance. It was actually the first thing we saw when we came in.

Definitely coming back to try their other makis.

I don't think anything really stood out for me. Not to say though that it wasn't good. Had the Chirashi Don. Definitely more types of Sashimi than your standard which made it good. Makis were also good and Sashimi was fresh. With the abundance of Jap places in the south though still thinking what would set this one apart. Service was ok. They forgot one of our orders and I appreciated the fact that the waiter owned up to it rather than making up some lame excuse. Also found it weird that the Rice Meals came out before the Makis and Sashimis

New favorite. Sushi Ninja never fails! This off-menu item is called Sake Poke. It's a Hawaiian dish made of cubed slices of fresh salmon, sesame and a dash of some magical Hawaiian dressing.

Time and time again, Sushi Ninja is consistent in serving fresh slices of salmon. Kikufuji is still number 1 in my list but this place has already overtaken Nihonbashi Tei, in my opinion. But if we're talking about south side of Manila, Sushi Ninja can't be beat.

Plating on this was just gorgeous. I liked how that slice of mango hugged the kani salad. Flavorwise, it was just good. A bit sweet coz of the fruit and other ingredients added in. The topping paired well with the toshi which is a fried sushi ball. Yes, very inventive yet still staying respect to Japanese cuisine. 127886

So I read somewhere that this is one of the top 10 Japanese restaurants in the Metro and I cant miss this one out cause its just right in the heart of Alabang. My husband and I ordered the Shinjuku Maki, Gyuniku yakitori, Chahan rice and 5pcs tempura. I think the Chahan rice is too pricey when its only just 1cup of rice and there's really nothing special about it. Rai Rai ken offers Chahan rice with similar price but the serving and taste is better. My two thumbs up is the Shinjuku Maki, the size is big, the taste is so flavorful and its satisfied my taste buds. I really love it! I will definitely come back but only to try the rest of the maki selections.
