We brought our 2 boys here (age 9 and 11) and we all had a blast. Portions are big and drinks are fun in light up cups. Prices are NYC...but I don't care about spending $28 for a kids meal that comes in a multilayer pagoda with a sparkler on top which he ate 85% of...you can spend that for breakfast in Manhattan. Fun experience! AMAZING magician was an added bonus!

Horrible experience. Arrived early. Told we could be accommodated. Waited 45 minutes in a dirty New York black basement. Walked out without being served. Glad we didn’t spend a dime here. Would not recommend to anyone.

The restaurant was very sensitive and accommodating to my son with nut allergies including waiving the plating fee since we came with our nut free birthday cake. The waiter was attentive however overbearing at times, we didn't get our food menus until about 20 minutes into our stay he said they give drink menu first. When we finally got the menus and ordered, the food took a very long time to come out. I would speed up the food. We highly enjoyed the entertainment some of the the banging was a little overly done at some points, but it was all in good fun. I think the restaurant should capitalize on the ambiance of the design itself and love the smoke, but keep the banging at minimum as it's nerve wracking.

The magician at the end was a great perk that we didn't expect but my son enjoyed it very much!
Prices are very steep but it's worth it for the overall experience; a one and done scenario.

We had so much fun at Ninja New York! A huge thank you to Ish, our waitor who did an excellent job of keeping us always supplied with drinks and food, as well as energy and laughter. Gotta love the decoration and all the people who works here, they are all in character, all the while ensuring the guests have a great timme. Thank you again, this was really fun! It's well worth it to book a table here, make sure you don't miss it!

kids running around I felt like being in a kindergarten. I have nothing against kids I have three of my own. But not when you come to a restaurant at 8:30 and you have kids all over running around screaming and fighting a ninja fight. menu is extremely Limited. There is only three options of fish. Yes it became probably cheaper than used to be before but being there 10 years ago this place was rocking. Today it's simply slacking and I barely think the way they're running this business now they will ever make it for another year

Bit dated. OK food. Crazy kids running around like ninjas with swords screaming and the parents & staff don't do anything about it. If you like Chucky Cheese, this is your place.

It was an amazing experience dining here; I loved the entire feel of the environment and the servers/ninjas were wonderful. They made sure we were being taken care of and that we were all satisfied with our service. Booked this place for a friend’s birthday and we had 8 people in total, so we received our own little closed off room which was also really nice and made the experience a lot more enjoyable. 10/10 would go here again!

It's good cheesey fun! I was hoping for a tiny bit more interaction, but all in all a really good time. The food is PRICEY but super tasty - definitely go for stuff with a ninja star next to it. The interior is VERY cool! You really go for the experience, and it didn't disappoint. Our 9 year old said it was one of his favorites!

We were even treated to a magic show at the end of our dinner which added a nice touch!

The entertainment definitely made up for the quality of the food. It was a great first time experience, but I would not return because the food was way to salty. It was also a bit on the pricey side. Service was good, but my meal came out about maybe 15 min later. I wish there was more on the menu to choose from.

Definitely a unique experience, one of kind in New York City. My waiter (ninja) was great, a good amount of back and forth banter. You always have to check the corners of your eyes to make sure you're safe while eating. Though what you eat is a bit lack luster. The recommended thing to do is order sets. Which will already rack you $50+. I tried to pick food that had a "show" to them to justify the price and stimulate my senses. But taste wise it didn't match the spectacle of the restaurant. This place is much much better with a party of 5 or more. Though still enjoyable with a smaller group or date night.

Everything seemed very rushed and when the firstvdishes came out they just sat them down all at once and left so the presentations were lost. The main course being one of salmon and onevod beef were both cold and we sent it back, my grandson said he would eat the beef cold. We were then told that we had to leave in 3 minutes as there was another reservation at 8 which we werent told before and even though our reservation was at 630 we were not even seated til 645 and our first drink was served at 655 so I feel one hour basically for dinner of several courses and the prices that were charged was unacceptable. They also served our appetizer and the other side courses right on top of each other.

Loved it such a fun scary experience for my 11 year old I would say not a good idea for kids under 5 unless they love being scared !!
The restaurant is dark and they are there to scare you!!!
Get ready !
Expensive side for food but it was good fun good things for kids to each - I would not go unless you’ve got a kid or are “kid” like !

The food was mediocre and over priced. The environment was super cool as was the table magic show. The magician was the only piece that moved it up a star. I barely ate my $50 plate as it was not good! My sons kids meal was ok but not worth the price. I can’t even believe his sprite was $15 for a blowup sword and a cup that lights up.

Loved the private ambiance- every table seems to be in its own little room. Dinner here is an experience rather than just a meal. From the moment you walk in the door to the moment you walk out, it’s a show. Excellent service for a fair price. Would definitely come back for a fun time for all ages!
