Fun experience for my kids - loved all of the ninja action. we got stuck at a back table near the kitchen which I didn't love. I would recommend for a party of 4 to be in the middle of the restaurant. I will definitely go back.

Great to experience something new. We really enjoyed the atmosphere and vibes this place offered. If I could change anything... I would have liked to be seated in a more private area. As I can see why the kiddos would love this place. They can be kind of distracting. Otherwise, cool place.

This was a great experience all together. We brought our two boys and they loved the performance, atmosphere, and ninja starts. Food was good - better than reviews. It is pricey, but you are paying for the show as much as the food. I'd go back. Highlight of our trip to NYC!

It's good for two scenarios: 1) young kids or 2) getting hammered on saki bombs.

Good: We actually had fun and the food was fine.

Bad: Noicy and to much “fun park” ambience for our taste. We had expected a more exclusive setting.

We have been to Ninja three times( same weekend every year for three years.) the first time was AMAZING! We sat in a little room that in a booth and Ninjas were constantly surprising us and coming by. There was a an amazing magician who stopped in and gave us a small show. It was magically. My son fell in love with this place. Hence we return. Second year was not quite as good but still fun, and then this year. We were seated in a large brightly lit room at a shared booth. Ninjas barely came by except to take an order or bring food and even then, although they were still dressed like ninjas did little to act the part. They didn’t engage our 7 year old son. And after we ate our 175 dinner we sat waiting for the magician, who had literally been right next to us to come to our table. Which he didn’t. Ever. So we left. It was extremely disappointing and lackluster. Unclear if it’s under new management or what, but when you are literally going to ONLY see Ninjas...it was lame.

The only problem I had with the experience was that our food was sent out too fast. We ordered an appetizer and were not finished before the main meal came out. They seemed to be in a hurry to get us in and out. The ninjas try to startle you throughout dinner, which is something the kids like, but the adults maybe not so much.

Recently visited as a family with two kids (4 and 7 years) and all had a blast! Our sever was very considerate of our son’s fear of being scared so they tailored the show to him. Food and drinks were much better than expected for a place that puts the emphasis on the show. Overall, we’ll definitely be back next time we visit NYC.

I would recommend a friend for the experience but not for the food and the cost. I brought someone there that had never been to NYC and the service took obscenely long and when we finally received the food it was cold. We waited a hour just to order another drink. They do not have enough servers on the floor for seamless service. It was my second time going there and I feel like it was my last. My friend I brought was not impressed for his 80 dollar meal. I really want to rate it 3.5 stars, because that’s what I felt the experience was.

Great for kids as it’s a unique experience! Friendly and service oriented staff. Food isn’t the best but it’s reasonably priced for what you get.

Surreal and hilarious. The menu is weird, steak and sushi and everything is flaming, smoking or both. People keep yelling “NINJA!!” at you, the walls are covered in grey spray concrete rocks like a cave, with bamboo all around. But somehow it all works. We had an amazing time, with three teenagers who were willing to embrace the lunacy, karate chop on command, and occasionally dodge plastic ninja swords.

Where was the fun?
We had heard that Ninja's constantly come out and scare you while you're eating making it a fun experience for the kids. So we took a few kids for my son's birthday. Paid $30 each for a hamburger and $20 each for a light up cup. Barely had any Ninja's, service or attention at all. In fact, we had to grab a ninja to entertain our kids who were thoroughly bored. All for a huge bill. Sigh.

So awesome! A little tricky to find at first because theres only a small plaque on the building but that adds to the "Ninja" theme. We loved it. My 13 year old son and nephew really loved it and the Magician was out of this world! I would pay to see him somewhere on stage.

Environment was a lot of fun, kids loved it. Ninjas constantly scaring people and screams heard throughout the evening which was great. Food presentation was fun with dry ice, lights, and fire, but the taste left a lot to be desired. Stay away from the steak, normally a great choice in a Japanese restaurant, not so much in this one...rubbery, chewy, and not cooked properly to order.

We took the kids there to celebrate our anniversary. The food was OK for us but the kids loved it because they ordered chicken fingers, mac & cheese, hamburgers & fries, (who doesn’t love that). I thought there would be a little more entertainment for them but they loved it so a good place to bring kids.
