Ronin is located right next to the Royal Oak Music Theatre in Downtown Royal Oak. The restaurant is always busy, but we are usually able to be seated pretty quickly. There are different types of seating to choose from including tables, booths, chairs, a bar, a sushi bar and a couch/lounge area. The lighting is very serene and on nice days they open up all of the walls/windows so that the whole restaurant has sun and a breeze coming through.
The restaurant features a full sushi menu, a full bar menu, and many items on their kitchen menu including shoe string and waffle fries! They are always running specials and have a happy hour from 5 to 7 p.m. with even more selections. I usually get sushi and some sides, but I have ordered some of their entrees before too. No matter what I have gotten, I have been pleased.
We took pictures of our meal to share with you. I went for a side salad, salmon avocado sushi and another side called a vegetable bowl. My dining partners ordered miso soup, shoe string fries, different kids of sushi including eel and mountain dew rolls. We all had beer, wine, and a great margarita made with a spicy salt that the waitress suggested.
At the end of the meal we even order 2 different desserts for the ladies to split. One was cookies topped with peanut butter ice cream and the other was some jam thing in a jar. I am not a dessert person so I didn't have any, but from the quickness that the dessert was eaten, I think my friends loved it!
Ronin is open 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 5 p.m. to Midnight on Friday and Saturday. The bar is open from 5 p.m. until last call.
I highly suggest giving this place a try if you are looking for a great meal and great service. They also have a private lounge if you are looking for a place to book your next event!
