As one of Singapore’s hottest spots for Japanese and Asian-fusion creations, Ninja Bowl is a restaurant that’s become particularly beloved in foodie circles. With an industrial-chic dining space that’s modern and relaxed, this Tanjong Pagar hotspot shines with its unique setting, and especially for their unbelievably flavourful specialities. With some of the friendliest service members to boot, you’re in for an all-around fantastic dining experience at Ninja Bowl – you’ll find it tucked away on bustling Duxton Road.
Unsurprisingly, given the hype following the recent opening of Tanjong Pagar’s Ninja Bowl, it’s never quiet, so you’ll need to book a table, but do it as fast as you can and look forward to an unforgettable meal taking you from the ancient traditions of the imperial Japanese Empire to a beautifully balanced pan-Asian soupy concoction of seafood, butter cream and miso, of course including their eponymous, delicious bowls alongside some truly unique masterpieces like the Fancy French, already said to be the best French toast in town. If you’re still reading, you’re wasting time – book now!
Love the atmosphere there and the fact that the kitchen staff is so fast and efficient, my food is served barely 10 minutes after I've placed my order. Food is decent, staff is friendly. Will definitely go back there again.
Great service great food, would definitely come back again. Mocha was decent as well. If you're not a fan of healthy food the brunch menu has a variety of options that are yummy.
It was really delicious especially with the 5 plump juicy scallops ! My absolute favourite ! The fancy French was also a nice sweet ending ~
Poke was good, very delicious. Variety of choices available. Ambience was very chill. Service is excellent ! Thank you so much for the food !
We had our delicious and healthy meals at Ninja Bowl. The food is great and they have a friendly staff that is helpful with recommendations. I would recommend more friends to visit Ninja Bowl.
Food was good but still lacking in service. For eg. We called earlier to check if they can reserve a cake for us as it was my friend's birthday. However, we were told there isn't any which is not true. In addition, we went there on National Day and there was promotion that if spend over $51, you get a desserts for free. However, this was not communicated to us at point of ordering and we only knew about it when we wanted to order a cake for my friend's birthday. Will still go back for the food but hope the service improved!
My wife and I are fan of ninja bowl and had been their loyal customer ever since. The food are really tasty and healthy! If there is one thing I hope they will improve on is that I wish they have an upside option. Sometime after meal I will feel satisfied but not full however I think this is so much better than you have a lot of low quality food but not satisfying.
Great food and friendly staff. It's my second time to Ninja Bowl. I had the Tuna and it is really good and simple. Today i tried the beef cheek and it is also good and simple
I've been here twice, had the unagi (Genki) bowl the first time and the salmon one (Yasai) the second time. Food was great both times - lovely presentation and delicious, although for the price the portion could have been a little larger. The coconut lemon mint drink was very refreshing (though also slighty expensive), but parts of the shell was scraped out with the coconut flesh, thus diminishing my enjoyment of what was otherwise an excellent young Thai coconut.
Had to share a table with another couple even though reservation was made. Understand that other tables might be under reservation too but the customers have not reach even when we were done with our meal, thus I think time and seating arrangements can be improved. Thanks for the great food thou :)
The food at Ninja Bowl were really tasty. The portion is huge too. The service was very good. They served the food really quickly too.
Food was good, portions generous and well-priced. Comfortable seating and staff were friendly. I ordered the Buta and Noka bowls with Ninja Rice, a satisfying mix of Japanese white and brown rice as well as the Fancy French. Found the Fancy French good but could have done with less honey as the main toast and fruit accompaniments were flavourful enough.
Waiting time was decent considering we were there on a weekend. Food was quite good, ingredients were fresh and they were generous with the portions, especially the proteins. However, drinks were somewhat lacklustre. We also tried 2 cakes (Speculoos and Matacha Yuzu), both of which were pretty dry. In short, go there for the mains and probably mains only.
Missed the place coz of a lack of signboard. Food is nice, esp the Scallop as well as the unagi bowls. Only thing is will be better if the food is served hot. Also a little disappointed at the removal of some items like Buta and Gyu as well as Tonkatsu spirit. Hope you can bring them back.
Great food, really enjoyed the butt cha Shu bowl and the fancy French toast. Will return for sure with friends and family to enjoy more Ninja Bowl goodness
The place is quite small and tables for 2 pax are placed quite close to each other, so you can practically hear your neighbours' conversations clearly even when the place is pretty crowded. However, the food was delicious and service was prompt! Will return to try out the rest of the menu!
The food is good and service is fast. This cafe is not a good place to chit chat with friends as the cafe then to be very noisy, i have to raise my voice when talking to my friends. But still i will visit the cafe again for the food.
2nd visit to this place. Food was great as usual. For seafood lovers, Ebisu is a must try! As for their signature dish Fancy French, the plating was good but portion wise , advisable to share among friends as the sweetness can be a bit overwhelming towards the end.
Fresh food, substantial portion, but I wish they hadn't fine printed the additional payment for the base (quinoa, rice, lettuce etc). Feels like I am paying extra for what should have been part of the meal. Just build it into the total cost.
Great customer service and really delicious food. Refreshing and unique taste, with a fusion of Japanese and European palate. Will definitely recommend to others, just a warning that it is slightly harsh on the wallet!
Service staff were friendly. Seating space is quite limited and squeezy. Crowd started to enter at around 7pm on a weekday night. Food is not exceptionally good, just usual health food that is above the price I would be willing to pay. Yet, food portion was adequate to full our tummies.
Tried their Ebisu with Udon which is heavenly for seafood lovers. The bowl comes with four fat and succulent Hokkaido scallops served with mussels cooked in umami cream sauce. Not a very healthy choice but it is so addictive.
Very nice place to grab a meal with friends during lunch. Would suit those who are especially conscious about eating healthy - all their bowls contain a variety of greens to go along with your choice of meat
Portion may be a little small for big eaters. Good taste but on the pricey side. Would have liked to hang out at the place a little longer but but it was rather warm on the day we went so we left shortly after finishing our food.
Food was good! Portions were generous (maybe I'm a small eater) and the cafe had a great ambiance. It's a popular place, so would recommend making a reservation ahead of time.
Food was delicious. Highly recommend the bowls. Although the Poutine was a little too salty and lack flavour, the bowls were flavourful and delicious. Will definitely be back fro the bowls.
had a kaisen bowl - yummy big scallops in lemon butter cream, along with a generous serving of mushrooms, mussels, carrots. orzo as a carb was tasty with a great texture - definitely returning for more
Food was average. I felt like my food was frozen & they just heat up for us. Our food was room temperature. I feel that the standard have dropped since the last time I went.
RSVP was handled online and very smooth. Nice menu with something for everyone. Food arrived promptly and was tasty. Dessert a bit dry but otherwise a pleasant lunch. Will come back. Well done ninja bowl!
you got to try this if you want to encounter new taste in your life! awaken my taste buds! never knew rice can taste so wonderful! espcially the unagi!!
Very impressive service and food! The staff were very patient to explain / recommend the menu! food-wise, was healthy yet nice options wonderful experience. will be back again soon!
Creative cuisine. Nice little diner at the corner of Duxton Road. Perfect for lunch, and casual dinner. Carb-free options a welcoming addition to SG food scene. Kudos, too, to the simple but sophisticated drinks.
Nice ambience & good food. Great for gathering. App easy to use for reservation but may take some time to accept the reservation. Only downside for the restaurant is that it closes too early
The food is delicious and service is good too. Love the interior design of the place as well. Would be better if they have more seats and more obvious signboard to show its location.
The staff were amazing! They changed the background music and helped with the cake for the birthday celebration - which I really appreciate! The food was good too!!
Heard and read great reviews and decided to visit. To sum this place up in 1 sentence: Grain bowl with an Asian twist. Food wise the quantity and quality of food is decent. Ambience wise the place is too cramp for comfort.
Food was awesome and portion was just right! Service was excellent too! The noka beef was marinated so well and recommend the coconut lemon mint as a drink!
Nice place! Recommended for lunch. Worth to visit. Coconut lemon mint is a must! Overall, had a good experience there. Can't wait to try out other items there.
It was a little crowded on a Tuesday night at around 8.30PM. Love the food and the ambience! Food didn't take too long to come and service was good. Unagi was the best!
I love the service and the enviroment chill out with my friends on the weekend at nijia bowl. Fresh food and drink was serve short waiting time
Great experience. Food was good as recommended by other bloggers and on instagram, place was easy to find. Do book in advance to reserve place preventing disappointment
Awesome healthy food!!! Loved the Yaki Unagi with Quinoa! No Service Charge so it was less than $20 nett. Really value for money! Would go back again.
Very delicious bowls and great coffee using Smitten beans. The Genki and Naka rice bowls are great with melt in the mouth beef cheek and savoury unagi.
Great friendly staff with nice ambience. Excellent food quality served in perfect portions. Tried Genki and Ushi this time. Will definitely return again to try other bowls.
The staff is helpful and prompt. Food arrived with very little waiting time. Ambience a little stuffy. Aircon needs to be colder on warm days like today.
Would have given a perfect 6 if it wasn't for the lack of tables (despite online reservations) as well as the poor attitude of a serving staff. Foods wise is definitely a thumb up especially the newly launched brunch menu.
Affordable healthy food with a wide variety of choices. Cosy environment. Centrally located, easily accessible. Better to make reservation before going down to avoid Long queues
Indeed a ninja place since it's really well hidden. The place was small but the quality food and warm service more than made up for it.
Great place to meet up with a Friend a share a healthy bowl to start the day! Would definitely come back for another round of those
Fantastic food. Had the salmon bowl with quinoa. Onsen egg is delicious, salmon was perfectly marinated in the sauces. Super healthy and hearty bowl. Highly recommended.
