When Bowen and Lindsay Sun were students at Case Western Reserve University, they craved authentic Chinese food. So when Ninja City was planning to leave the bustling Uptown district, the couple quickly put in an offer on the location central to the campus. Bowen, a Cleveland native, already has years of restaurant experience from his time running Cincinnati sushi bars and eventually opening Szechuan Cafe in 2015 alongside his uncle.
You'll find soup dumplings, steamed and pan-fried buns, noodles, salads and spring rolls as some of most popular items here. Snacks like kebabs come in varieties like chicken, Chinese sausage, cuttlefish, tofu, lamb, mushroom and potato.
