Ninja Jones - Northpoint, Mid Valley City, Kuala Lumpur

California Roll (RM14.00) - avocado was creamy as it should be and the rolls were fine.
Dynamite Roll (RM22.00) - slightly spicy with fresh tuna and some crispy fried tempura batter chips to add some crunch to the rolls.
Salmon Zukushi (RM38.00) - salmon sashimi, salmon belly sashimi and salmon roe (ikura) - kinda difficult to eat the roe on its own without rice as salmon roe are salty. The salmon and salmon belly sushi were fresh.
Shuriken No. 1 Special (RM16/pc) - snapper wrapped crabmeat and avocado - this is a delicious crabcake with a twist (the snapper) - a tad too pricey though... it's so tiny... Tori Teriyaki (RM16.00) - lean chicken with a slight crisp, just the way I like!
Wagyu Ishiyaki Steak (RM52.00) - Hot Stone Seared Wagyu Steak - so soft and fragrant - watch the steak on the hot stone and make sure it's not overdone.
Eringi Ninniku Shoyu Grill (RM15.00) - Sliced Eringi Mushroom doused with shoyu and sake and then Grilled on the table

King Prawn Roll (RM32.00) - it was just ok. Nothing spectacular.

One thing about the rolls though is that they are generally generous with filling and rice is just minimal to hold the good stuffs together.

Ninja Jones scored well in terms of the ambience (imagine male service staff in Ninja outfits complete with covered faces, huge selection of seats - from the usual dining area to the sushi bar and private rooms, great washrooms!) and food presentation.

Service was good since every staff was very attentive though most were inexperienced. Thumbs up for their efforts.

Food was generally good and depending on how you look at it, the menu can be overwhelming as it was extensive or it could be a welcome if you like variety. If you like wagyu beef, this is the place to be. On Japanese alcoholic drinks, they also have a lot to offer but we didn't have any this time.
