This was our first experience at Ninja. They have great food options for vegans. We had the soy & ginger tofu, a few vegetarian rolls, and the vegetable pad thai. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Overall we had a great experience!

Went on a recommendation of a friend. The sushi was good. We really enjoyed the speciality rolls. The service was odd though, the server was very offensive and made very rude comments about children that I work with. It made the whole experience VERY uncomfortable.

Very much their own self sufficient unit within the
greater metro area, Uptown and Carrollton tone down
the urban edge with a friendly attitude and collegiate
feel. Home to Tulane and Loyola Universities, all the
students living in the area ensure that Uptown and
