Brought my 9year old nephew here for his birthday and didn't regret it. We enjoyed the unique vibe. The meals were beautifully presented and delicious as well. The shows were very entertaining and enjoyable. Hats off to all the staff for the great service and...entertainment we received. They even gave us a complimentary dessert for his birthday. Loved the whole experience.More

I had a date here (not my choosing, she chose) and while I enjoyed the whole idea and cheerfulness of the place, it was clear that everybody is not for everything. Only go here with people who can laugh a little. Know your party before...you bring them here or they will ruin the whole experience provided by the wait staff- and they're funny so really soak that in. I won't ruin the surprises but the menu presentation is really cool!!! That aside, don't let the playfulness detract from the great food and drinks you can get here. This is a top quality Japanese restaurant, underneath the theme. The food in delicious, the liquor will hit hard and there are many great options to pick from, some of which come with prizes. You should definitely walk around the place find some hidden games in the art work and decor, before/after you eat. It's really cool.More

This restaurant was awesome! The entire setup is so cool and very unique. The sushi was so fresh and presented beautifully. We also got the beef bento box and is was to die for. This was easily one of the best Japanese style meals I’ve...ever had and I eat a lot of Japanese food. A ninja magician even put on a very entertaining and comical show for us right at our table. My boyfriend and I got engaged earlier in the day and to celebrate they gave us a complimentary dessert. We would definitely recommend this restaurant and hope to come back.More

A unique dining experience in an underground ninja village. You can order meal items a la carte or a set meal with various courses. We went with the courses and were not disappointed. The staff will pop out and scare you. Some meal items come...with special presentations like dry ice, flames, or flashing lights and ninja stars. It's a little silly, but something different and fun to try on a special occasion. The magic show at the end was a nice surprise and had us all laughing!More

We go to Ninja every year for my son's birthday, and it never disappoints. The fun starts with your exit from the elevator and continues. Many of the dishes are themed with special features. During the meal a magician comes to your table. The food...is good. My only complaint is that the food is very expensive, but you are really going for the experience.More

Kichy but fun for a group with kids. Food was decent and drinks were good. The table side magic show was great and the kids just loved it.

We had a great time, but don't take anyone who doesn't have a sense of humor or takes themselves too seriously.

Family of five (kids aged 16, 11, 11) visited in October 2019. From arriving in the elevator, the Ninja surprises and jump scares kept our family laughing at this fantastically themed restaurant. Our server was great with the kids, and we ordered mainly things with...special Ninja presentation. The "Great Castle" set meal was enough for two, and all the kids were full up after their set meals too. Sushi was especially impressive, particularly the "Dragon Roll". The conjuror who came round the tables was funny and entartaining. It's not cheap, but we saw it as a "last night splurge" at the end of our NYC trip, and were all glad we went.More
