The concept is great, but we were disappointed. Our servers were half-hearted and not very attentive, which I am sure made a difference in the experience. We expected mediocre to bad food after reading the reviews, but not the vomiting four hours later. Your miles may vary.

They have an amazing staff who makes your dining experience fun. We went twice and can't wait to go back. The food is great and we loved the roll shaped like a sword. Good times.

Ninja was introduced to me by my brother who lives in NYC. It is more about the entertainment than it is about the food. Food is served in many splendid styles with fire and dry ice everywhere - it's pleasant but you're there for the fun of it rather than the exquisite taste. The service was impeccable and all part...

Love the atmosphere of this place. It looks like a ancient ninja village. The food was great too. Make sure to order things that are marked as having a great presentation. This will mean fire or smoke, etc. There was also a magician that did amazing close-up magic.

We went to Ninja with friends last night. My first impression was I must have somehow ended up in the Disneyland Haunted House. It only went down hill from there. The incessant Ninja attacks and gimmicks became beyond annoying. The place is a cauldron of commotion, noise, horrible service and even worse food. Our wait staff was inconsistent and kept... More

Went here over the weekend. The staff really got into it and made the visit really fun. The food was ok but the experience was terrific. I was surprised at the diversity in patrons as I am not sure we would have visited without kids. Get more beer options !!

A must for all Ninja fans. Great food, friendly staff and awesome decor make for an awesome experience. The sushi is fresh and flavorful, as was the chicken teriyaki. Can't wait to return.

If you're looking for a different dining experience, then visit NINJA New York! Our first time in the city, we were looking for memorable experiences all round, and this was definitely one of them. You are ushered into an elevator by a Ninja and taken to a whimsical place (think ancient Japanese samurai village). The night is full of fun,... More

Food are generous portions with leftovers to take home! Fun atmosphere with ninja wait staff throughout the restaurant. There are performances with flaming entrees, including a magician with his magic acts at table side.
