Fun but touristy

This is a theme restaurant, harkening to a Disney experience. You creep around in semi darkness, occasionally being attacked by waiters dressed up in ninja gear. Each table is enclosed in shoji doors and for our large group we had a private room as such. Tables are low to the floor and you sit on... read more

The food here was surprisingly great. I read reviews of how fun the restaurant was (and it really was great fun) but the food was amazing. Like crazy good!!! I had so much good food in Japan, and to say this was the best food in the whole trip says alot.

Look, this place is a Ninja-themed restaurant. If you are not interested in that, I am not sure why you would go there. (Barbed reference to unflattering review I just read -- what the Heck were you expecting? Obviously written by some Samurai enemy of ninjas... ^_^) Anyway, behind a little-noticed door tucked into an austere black wall lurks a... More

I live in Japan and I only go to Ninja Akasaka if there were young guests in town that have never been. They always have fun and are impressed with the decor but the food is so underwhelming. This Ninja themed restaurant is exciting as soon as you walk in the door. The staff walk you through a dark maze... More

I strongly recommend this place for anyone who enjoys the themed restaurants in Tokyo. We booked a table a few weeks in advance (I advise doing this as it is extremely popular) and when we arrived we were in a small room. A ninja appeared from behind a wall to take us down into the restaurant. The menu is served... More

I've been living here for the passed 4 years and the one thing I've learned is how important food is to this great country. This restaurant is the biggest tourist trap I've ever experienced. There is nothing authentic about the food and it's extremely overpriced for what you get. Expect to eat pate, gazpacho and some kind of Thai soup... More

This is a fun way to have a meal in Tokyo. The entertainment starts as soon as you enter the restaurant to be seated. The hostess will call for a ninja to take you to your table and you begin your ninja "training" as you walk through narrow, darker areas to get to your table. The menu is a scroll... More

We read reviews and watched the video before booking what for us was a very expensive meal (drinks were AU8.50 - 12.00 for non alcoholic). Our hotel concierge booked for us as we had dietary requirements and wanted a clean vegetarian meal. It was absolutely a breeze and we had two banquet dinner menu's to select from. We had our...

We had looked forward to attending this restaurant for over a year. It was to be one of the highlights of our trip to Japan in 2015 but a feeling of the restaurant's contempt for its customers has resulted in us deciding to abort the visit. It is understandable if an Eastern restaurant cannot accommodate a Western palette but in... More

Me & my partner first time travelled to Tokyo for the and we came across this restaurant on-line and reserved a seat via their website but when we got there they couldn't find our reservation so we had to wait over an hour to be seated.
