The Ninja experience is fun - don't expect fine dining! However, the food is very good and the special effects are exciting - and the ninja waiters are entertainig.

From the moment you arrive and the concierge whispers "they're hear" into a telephone you realise that this is no ordinary dining experience. I don't want to give too much away but it was hilarious. My son had been fairly neutral about New York up to that point b(well he had been dragged to every tourist attraction available)but Ninja put... More

Food was very good. Our waiter was great. The ninja experience was awesome. However, I found it a little bit pricey. I would still go again. Just only for a special occasion.

Let's face it, you don't go to this place for the food because the food is not great and it is the weirdest eclectic menu I have ever seen. This place is neither a hibachi or Chinese and I would call it Sushi/meat and potatoes?? The place is hidden in lower Manhattan near ground zero and you wouldnt even know... More

We did not have a reservation and were lucky that we only had to wait a little while before we got a table. We did however have to wait quite a while for our drinks and had to keep asking. The edamame and salad was good and we enjoyed the sushi. A fun place to take the kids. Our waiter... More

We dine here every year. If everything lines up in your favor, then the restaurant is great. However, there are many variables that can give you a bad experience. 1. Seating. CAUTION they can not guarantee that you will even sit "in the village" which is where you want to be. (no matter how far out you make reservations). This... More

The theme of this restaurant is wonderfully executed and the food is great. It's expensive, but worth it. The sushi was yummy and so were the other starred dishes (those served in a special way with the theme of the restaurant) and they were all delicious.

Had dinner here with my sons, ages 7 & 9 last time we were in NYC. They looooooved it!! Fun atmosphere and the food was tolerable for me and delicious for them. The waiters do all sorts of fun ticks & keep the kids entertained. All the booths are in their own little "cave," so it's a nice break from... More

Our boys enjoyed our meal at Ninja, including the costumes, the maze leading to our private table, the ninja "magician", and the presentation of their entrees with liquid nitrogen "smoke". While expensive, it was not so much more than comparable NYC restaurants. It was a kick for us to watch the kids have such a unique experience. The food was... More

We recently dined at Ninja and were pleasantly surprised by the great time we had! The restaurant is built to resemble a Asian village with multiple levels of small enclosed single dining rooms. the wait staff are dressed in ninja costumes and don't take themselves too seriously! All staff was warm and attentive and environment was welcoming! The food was... More

Neighborhood Profile
What’s in a name? In this case it is the unique title of “Triangle Below Canal Street” that became a popular nickname in the 1970s. An attractive neighborhood filled with handsome lofts on the edge of the Financial District, this lovely slice of Manhattan offers plenty of fine dining experiences and art galleries. Plus, it’s home to the city’s most exciting film event, the Tribeca Film Festival, that takes place here every year. TriBeCa is a great place to take a leisurely stroll before stopping into one of the many local restaurants or bars for a satisfying meal and cocktail. You’ll see families out for an afternoon walk, and don’t be surprised to come up with the occasional celebrity sighting. With such a great vibe, many of the city’s most famous residents call this neighborhood home.
