Welcome to Sushi Ninja

Sushi Ninja is the only Japanese-owned and operated Sushi Bar/Japanese Restaurant in New Plymouth. It is owned and operated by husband and wife team, Ken and Sophie Kurota.

Where is Sushi Ninja?
Sushi Ninja is located at 89 Devon Street East, which is on the hill, New Plymouth - Taranaki, New Zealand.

Our Mission - to provide our customers with the highest quality service and food

Casual café-style dining during the day includes a wide range of takeaway sushi packs and dine-in meals such as bentos (lunch boxes filled with a variety of favourites), donburis (large bowls of rice with different toppings), curries and more.

At night ‘izakaya’ sake-bar style dining emphasises communal ‘tapas’ meals in great variety where friends can share the different flavours.


Special Message to Japan

Message to JapanThe disaster in Japan has affected us, not just generally but also on a personal level as Ken is from Yamagata, which is in the Tohoku Region, the worst hit area. Fortunately, his family and friends have been accounted for and are safe, however there are many many people that weren’t so fortunate and even the survivors have a long road to recovery.

On March 13th (two days after the earthquake & tsunami) Sushi Ninja staff and friends climbed Mt Taranaki to honour the people in Japan. Upon reaching the summit after six hours, taking with us a Japanese flag signed by friends & customers with their messages of sympathy and encouragement, we offered our prayers to the victims and made our way back. Kia Kaha Japan. Ganbare Japan!

We, at Sushi Ninja will do everything in our power, to help with the efforts of recovery in Japan. We are currently collecting donations for the Japan Earthquake and Tsunami Appeal for Save the Children Japan via collection box in our shop by the till. This charity has been helping children from all over the world for more than 25 years. They are now focused on helping the children who were directly affected by the earthquake and tsunami. We would appreciate your kind donations.

We are planning other charity events to raise money for Japan. We will keep you posted on dates & times. Read the full article on
