Nowhere in Singapore does fusion food quite like Ninja Cut. Originally setting up shop over in Duxton, much to the delight of the city’s foodies, Ninja Cut are now bringing their creative twists on Asian classics to Bugis, with a new restaurant located on Seah Street. Drawing in diners from all over Singapore with its hip decor and mouthwatering menu, spaces at Ninja Cut are limited. Best be ninja quick and book ahead in order to guarantee one!
Ninja Cut is a name that is taking Singapore's foodie scene by storm, serving up brunch, bites and bowls. With its trendy, minimalist decor and industrial-chic detailings, this hip Bugis haunt provides the perfect backdrop for a number of different occasions, whether it's for a casual lunchtime catch up with friends, a romantic date, or a special evening meal. Not only is the restaurants aesthetic pleasing on the eyes, each dish is so beautifully presented that you won’t want to eat it – unless you’ve instagrammed it first, of course.
Head on over in the morning and start your day off with some matcha ricotta pancakes, some salmon confit or a grilled cheese sandwich. For lunch or dinner, go for one of Ninja Cut’s bowls like the chicken breast chimichurri, baked miso cod, crackling pork belly or the squid bowl, accompanied by light bites like the bacon and asparagus tempura, sweet potato fries and roasted cauliflower. For a fusion feast in Singapore’s Bug, head on over Ninja Cut on Seah Street – the secrets out the bag though, so make a reservation in advance to avoid missing out!
Food was superb but quite expensive. Many beverages were not available which was a pity.
Love this place! Been here so many times, food is good, service is great. Highly recommend the Matcha Hotcake and the Squid Fix. Flavourful and satisfying.
Super good as usual! Had the croissant with chili scrambled eggs and matcha hotcakes for dessert to share with my companion. Their matcha dessert is one of my all time favourites :)
Food quality was good to compliment the great service in this place.
Staff service is excellent. However, 60% of the food is sold out which is quite disappointed. Order Pulled pork and Huli Huli Chicken. Personally i like Pulled Pork more than Huli Huli Chicken. Overall, great experience. Hopefully there will be more variety when we dine at Ninja Cut next time.
The food was fresh and delicious. please note the small print as the dishes can get a little pricey as after you add quinoa/soba/sushi rice as a topping. Super casual place so the noise level is very high and hard to hear yourself talk. The best dish was the grilled squid. Most disappointing was the seafood Mentaiko - too rich in cream and couldn't taste the mentaiko. Sadly the coffee is bitter and sour and dessert was too sweet. Would just go back for a quick lunch meal and have the grilled squid dish.
Mains were really small and not substantial. While the flavours were good (we ordered the chicken and salmon), unfortunately, they felt more like a salad / starter even with the addition of ninja rice. We were still hungry after the meal and went elsewhere for dessert as we didn't want to shell out more for another small portion of food. Ambiance wise, the restaurant felt more like a fast food restaurant, with tables packed tightly next to each other and really stark, bright white lights. We were seated on rather uncomfortable high stools by the toilet, next to another couple, and unfortunately there was a party of four seating close that were unbearably loud which made it difficult to enjoy our meal.
The staff were friendly and approachable. Led us to our seats and even knew my name before I could even whip out my reservation details! The food arrived promptly and tasted really good without much garnishing. My aunt who is quite fussy with food loved her "Oh My Cod!". We also ordered "What's Your Beef" and "Waikiki Surf". Thumbs up! :)
Service was really wonderful, staff were friendly and even reminded by boyfriend about his umbrella when he had left it under the table. However, the food is really pricey and I can't say that the portions justify the price. Food is good though. Would recommend it if you want to eat good food, aren't feeling really hungry, and don't mind paying more.
Every dish was well prepared. The "What's your beef" dish was particularly savoury and went very well with the rice option. The "Squid fix" was tasty with a generous portion of squid. The "Oceans of Mentaiko was a perfect blend of mentaiko sauce complemented by fresh tasting scallops and mussels. Would have been better if it was a larger serving though.
