A friend told me about the place and I thought it would be fun to take another friend who was visiting. The restaurant in in the basement and transformed to look like a ninja village. Plus it has been designed into a labyrinth of dark corridors that allows ninjas (i.e- the stealthy waiters) to jump out at you with fake... More

My boyfriend brought me here as a birthday surprise dinner. I was very excited to see the place as it just seemed so cool. The tricks and the presentation of the dishes is really entertaining but I was not wowed completely. The food was just average and didnt compliment the upscale atmosphere and prices. To be honest I cant even... More

Went with my extended family to celebrate our grandson's 8th birthday. The staff is friendly and child-oriented. Unlike most NY restaurants each party is seated in their own room. Considering the child-oriented theme, I was surprised to see many cubicles for two; a true NY'er wouldn't be caught dead here. Does this place cater to out of towners? The atmosphere... More

Very entertaining for all ages, food was lovely. The only downside was that with meals, drinks, tips for the magician, tips for waiters etc is very expensive

Just took our son here during a visit to NYC for his 9th birthday. He loved it so much that he decided we should move to NYC so we can dine here frequently. It is a great experience with kids (probably 6 and up)! Order the dishes with a 'ninja star' next to them on the menu for maximum entertainment.... More

I saw this restaraunt on the food network 2 years ago and I knew that the next time I went to New York I had to go. Even if the ninjas weren't as awesome as they were, we thought the food and presentation was awesome!

I had such high hopes for this dinner with my two boys. I was so disappointed. The atmosphere was cool and the waiters were very nice. But I just can't get over how much we paid for mediocre to bad food. Even my Caesar salad didn't taste right. Some cool presentations but overall not worth it. Will not return.

clearly, the guy who created the food had a great concept. He put together a space that is on multiple levels ( beware disabled people ) that is really exciting. The staff is really nice and work hard to be friendly and outgoing. I was very pleased with the staff. The concept is so much fun for everyone, especially the... More

We came with our two kids (12 and 13) and had a great night. Waiters were brilliant, lots of tricks etc... There was a magician doing sleight of hand tricks at the table for a tip only. Food was pretty good, some Japanese but most Western-styled Japanese (if you know what I mean). Service was very good (it IS New... More
