The Flying Ninja is a nice, cozy Japanese and Korean restaurant near the Fishermans wharf area of San Francisco. We really welcomed having friendly service and delicious food. The korean bulgogi was great.

Tired of crabs and clams I decided to visit Flying Ninja and was pleased by the results. There were quite a few options for rolls so I picked the Shrek roll (good), the Bay Scallop (baked) roll (really good) and the XXX (really good). Empty...More
