Great experience! Too much food! Don't believe all the reviews you see here. We were a party of 6 adults and we thoroughly enjoyed our meal and the ninja "excitement"! We were a bit unsure after reading reviews saying how it was great for kids and that the food wasn't great. We all enjoyed our food and had way too... More

This is a fun restaurant - so much more than we expected and we we laughing the whole time. It's not cheap but the portions were huge. My set meal for one could have served three! But it was good food and served with such flair. It's not right place for a quiet meal but expect a few surprises and... More

Went there with my two kids (girl aged 10, boy 6) last night. They loved it, especially my son. The staff there is great, do the ninja stuff, very friendly. You sit in these little dark rooms, special atmosphere. The food was fine, nothing special, but that's not really the point. I wouldn't go there without kids but with them... More

Unfortunately, everything you read is true. The staff friendly, the food terrible. Experience is just average. Another tourist trap-don't be fooled. The kitchen and menu need to be re-worked. If you are spending $200 for 2 children and 2 adults you expect more. Spend you hard earned dollars elsewhere.

Our children (8 yrs and 11 yrs) loved the atmosphere and unique setting. The wait staff was super fun and friendly. We order a couple of dishes that offered table side flaming. Do not recommend these dishes. My husband's steak was more like drinking lighter fluid. Although, a fun idea they could use some work on the logistics. Would go... More

Went here for my sons birthday. Kids had fun but food was very bad. Service was good and waiters were friendly with kids, did magic tricks and jokes. I wouldn't go back for the food but rather for my kids (just if they ask). If I do go back, I would eat elsewhere before I take my kids.

We took our 5 & 7 year old here and they loved it!! They take you down an elevator into the ninja world and do a great job of having ninjas jump out at you on your way to the table. The food was served on dry ice so it was smoky which added to the atmosphere. Our favorite part... More

Took the grandchildren to this restaurant on a visit to NYC. The ninja server kept them entertained and they had a lot of fun. My burger was loaded with veggies & was delicious. Everyone stated their meals were good. Your bill can add up quickly with all the added extras for the kids....light up cups, magician, etc. I was a... More

I took my daughter here for a surprise meal during our Easter visit to NYC because she loves Japanese food and ninjas. We were not displeased. The entrance to the restaurant itself is fairly nondescript but once you enter the secret ninja elevator and descend (maybe) into the catacombs of the Ninja Village it's all pretty cool. It's dark, a... More

This is a really fun place if you are looking for some food with action. Extremely dramatic and engaging. The Japanese Ninja theme is fused so well with the food menus and there is so much going on that you can hardly wait to know whats going to happen next. Kept me on my toes all time. The mystery in...

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.
