Entertaining dinner

This was our second visit to Ninja New York. We enjoyed our meal as well as our server, she was an enthusiastic Ninja! However, we did feel pushed out as soon as we took our last bite of dessert.

Went to Ninja New York on our visit to New York, very easy to find but no parking. When we entered we expected a much more eventful entrance, but it was ok compared to other Japanese restaurants. They have a delicious drink I forgot what it was called but it looked like a blue martini. I liked the decoration and... More

We were looking forward to this dinner, capping off our week in NY with our kids, ages 12 and 14. We expected high prices, but that it would also be entertaining as well. Not so. The food was just ok, and really very expensive. There was no ninja anything except being called ninjas by our waiter, and being jumped out... More

The ninja experience was fun for the whole family. The food was okay, but not extraordinary. I would recommend this to other families.

Anyone who doesn't think this is a draw for kids is out of their mind. Given that, we brought our three kids because of the great reviews. This was our big night out to cap off our kids' first NYC visit. I would have thought that a restaurant that attracts families, especially kids, would have a more appropriate kids' menu.... More

We had 6:30 reservations, arrived a little early, and were escorted to our table. We enjoyed the 'ninja' experience from the start. All of the wait staff was friendly and the little interactions throughout the meal were lots of fun. The food was great. The drinks were strong. Desserts were delicious and fun - we had the Bonsai and Ninja... More

We came across Ninja New York online while reviewing places to eat during our visits. Both my kids really wanted to visit. Upon arriving we were greeted and had to wait in a small crowded area that was uncomfortably hot. The website promised ninja attacks and entertainment but all we got was someone jumping out on arrival and a 2... More

It was a fun evening for the family, as long as you were ready for it to be pretty kitchy and can deal with screaming ninjas. Might be fun for a random date night. Once is probably enough, though. Food is fine, but not the main attraction.

What really makes this place is the entertainment. Certain dishes come with staff entertainment, which is really fun. The drinks were great and original. Each room houses one party, so you are not sitting in a crowded restaurant but a separate room with your group, which is nice. Now I cant really comment on the food, as I am allergic... More

Staying in TriBeCa

Neighborhood Profile
TriBeCa
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.
