Family owned and operated, Ninja Sushi began in July, 1993 at our first location on Jeanette Street in Uptown New Orleans. Over the next few years, our list of regulars and newcomers grew rapidly. In July of 2001, Ninja Sushi moved out of the close quarters on Jeanette Street to accommodate the large crowds that would gather for their first rate sushi experience and other Japanese fare.

Once relocated to 8433 Oak Street in Uptown New Orleans, regulars and young families toting small children were again able to enjoy our award winning Japanese food. Our daily regulars are a testimony of our friendly, courteous, and experienced staff with an overall high quality dining experience.
