One of the most fun restaurants I’ve been to. The food was outstanding, it was a bit expensive, but was truly worth it. The staff is super fun and they carry out the ninja feeling from the moment you walk in until the moment you leave. Would definitely recommend!

when you pay over $60 for a dish and they put frozen chicken nuggets that will lost any competition with McDonalds you know something is wrong.
No show existed as promised in the menu.
Will not recommend or be ever back.
Could be a nice place if they start serving good food or at least provide a minimum show as promised

Super cheesy, over priced and terrible quality food. Fish was dried out, the sushi rolls were only 4 pieces and the stunts were beyond underwhelming.
It’s like they weren’t even trying

Ninja is a super fun restaurant, especially for your little ones but it’s not just a family restaurant - it was a lot of fun for us too! The staff was friendly and so attentive. The special effects and all the little extras that came along with the meal were great. We can’t wait to go back!

We were celebrating my husband’s birthday and looking for a new experience! The food was great! We weren’t visited by many ninjas, as they seemed to cater to younger guests. Overall, very good to try!

If you want to have a different type of dining experience, this is definitely one of those kinds of places! The staff is extremely nice and the food is really good! This is my second time there and still enjoyed it as much as the first time.

My 7 year old is very into Ninjas and absolutely loved this restaurant! Ninjas jump out at you from the moment you exit the elevator and scare you at your table - which he loved. The food is cool - depending on what you order it comes with a fire "show," entertaining show from your server or surrounded by steam. It was a great entertaining restaurant and the decor was great too. Food was good - overpriced for what it was but you are paying for the experience. I would definitely recommend it!

I would recommend this restaurant only to celebrate an event with kids 8 to 12 years old. The food is mediocre for the price, the ninja theme is only funny for kids. Service and the magician were excellent. Tip: you have to order a dessert to have the magician come to your table.

Read reviews and visited ninja when we came into town with 3 kids. Super fun experience from the start. Food was pretty good. As another reviewer said, we looked at the overall cost as dinner and a show so it wasn’t that bad

Shrimp tempura was soggy, none of the food was worth the price - especially the $20 soda that came with a blow up sword, tiny toy ninja and plastic ninja star (all from oriental trading) and the only “ninja” tricks were dry ice smoke, sparklers and a hi-ya here and there - best part is when you first go in and the hostess scares you - they didn’t use the hidden panels, no one dropped out of the ceiling or anything else spectacular so it was a long drive for meh food that was expensive BUT the kids loved it and that was the most important part... so maybe we’ll go back when Deblasio is out of office and the city is nice again.

The food and entertainment is good. I just did not like the waiter coming back and questioning why we did not leave a 18% tax than saying he was too camera shy to get a picture.

From the moment you walk in you feel the true ambiance of the restaurant. It is a very interesting and fun restaurant. The waiting staff all plays an excellent role of a ninja they are so friendly and kind. The food is delicious and I love the glowing cups that you get to take home! I had a wonderful experience and already mentioned it to 3 friends! It is definitely worth going to!
