Serves meat, vegan options available. Japanese restaurant located Uptown. There is a separate, extensive vegetarian menu (see website), so ask for it. Gives you hot moist washcloths for your hands before you eat. Has a bar downstairs, and the dining area is upstairs.

First Review by kayellebee

Separate vegetarian menus - Edit

On entering, the bar/waiting area looks disheveled, but the upstairs dining area is very neat and bright. The vegetarian menu is extensive.

We had the enoki mushroom appetizer, the vegetarian sukiyaki and the tofu steak dinner. We were happy with all the choices, and were pleased that there were so many choices to make. It was very nice of the owner to come out to make sure we understood the vegan options.

The only drawback was that our server was a bit too solicitous and did not give us enough breathing space.

Pros: vegetarian menu, vegan choices

Awesome Veg/vegan menu! - Edit

They really have so many choices if you ask for the veg/vegan menu. Like the other person said, Ninja has about 4 huge pages! It is so good, and a relief to finally have another accommodating restaurant in nola! If you are local, you must swing by in October. They have a really cool haunted house built into the first floor! Also, check out the clock on the wall. Whenever the hour strikes it behaves in strange ways! I would also give them 5 stars because they have two completely separate menus, and it is like you are dining at a veg restaurant, but 4 is the limit for non completely vegetarian restaurants.

Pros: Vegan Friendly, Excellent Staff, inexpensive

Huge Vegan/Vegetarian Menu!! - Edit

Make sure you ask for the vegetarian menu when you go in, otherwise they'll just bring you the regular. It was amazing! 3-4 pages of veg wonders. There are even asterisks denoting small amounts of egg and dairy in the dishes. The staff was friendly, understanding, and accomodating. It's pretty far from the French Quarter, but if you take the St. Charles streetcar to Uptown, get off at Oak St, and walk about 3 blocks west - you're there! We will def go back if in town again.
