We decided to visit Ninja Restaurant as a fun night out for our 7 year old daughter. She was totally surprised.
We did have a reservation, but still ended up waiting about 30 minutes to be sat, as the hostess stated, "They were backed up." It was a Sunday night, so we were understanding about the wait. A waiter did, however, come over and offer to provide us with drinks as we waited. We were very appreciative and it helped the wait time fly by.
We were sat at the last table in the back of the restaurant, which wasn't ideal since, for our first visit, we really wanted to be in the middle of the action. It also seemed as if the table was meant for 2 but they added a chair in the aisle to accommodate our party of 3. It was pretty uncomfortable.
Our server did pull out her sword a couple of times to entertain my daughter, but she was less than impressed.
As for the food, it was delicious! We ordered the burger kids mea, $28, for our daughter. Her meal included a cheeseburger, mac and cheese, chicken tempura and fries. My boyfriend and I were able to share the $69 set, and still had plenty of food to take home. This included calamari, a lobster bisque miso soup, a salmon sushi roll and a choice of steak.
At the end of dinner, a ninja came over and offered to do some magic tricks. We were totally down for it (be prepared to tip him). He was great! That really made up for being in the back of the restaurant.
Overall, I would definitely go back, but with the request that we be in one of the rooms closer to the front or middle of the restaurant.

We were seated in a corner at a figure 8 table with another family we didn’t know. It felt like the other family was facing us and we were facing them due to the table design, which was uncomfortable. Our table was next to the kitchen so my kids heard the waiter and chef cursing. We were also seated next to a large and very loud group of teenage girls that were there for a birthday. Our food came out quicker then it does at Burger King. I’ve never felt so rushed. It was a horrible and expensive experience.

This was very pricey for the quality of food, a downside I expected to be mitigated by the experience. But, the servers paid little attention to our table and the "ninja presentations" were underwhelming. We spent $180 on terrible food and mediocre theatrics that were barely even present. Wouldn't go back.

Fun for the kids. They loved the magic and showmanship. Food not very good from the salad to the main course. Food for the value...terrible. You go for the entertainment but leave hungry and unsatisfied.

It’s a fun experience coming here but I wouldn’t go back often because I think it’s a little over priced for the quality of food. It’s a very touristy kind of place with a unique dining concept that was enjoyable and that’s what you’re really paying for. Glad I tried it though! ...my one big negative here is that the lights in the dinning area are way too bright.

This place is great if you're looking for a silly theme restaurant to take the kids or have a fun night out with friends. Our waiter was super nice and attentive (I wish I got his name!) and also spoke with us in a very tongue in cheek manner as if we were in on the joke as well - which we appreciated. The food was fine - tasty, but nothing special. Also, it was a little frustrating that their signature (read: expensive) menu option, the great castle, had fillers such as french fries and mac and cheese. To their credit, however, they were listed in the description of the dish. Overall, this was a fun night but much more kitschy than expected and certainly not for those looking for an authentic Japanese food experience.

I wanted to try something different,and fun with my kids with a theme. We ended up at Ninja, and they were not disappointed. The setting is totally ninja-including the elevator ride and walk through the ninja path to the dining area. The food was what I expected (nothing more, nothing less) we were there for the different experience. Meal presentation was good, and included fire, fog and neon lights. I do think it was slightly overpriced, but what isn’t. The servers played the ninja role well and were very attentive. Mike our table side magician was great with the kids,and put on a good five + minute interactive show with the boys. Bring some extra cash to tip him. I would go back if my boys wanted to bring a friend or dine there again.

This was one of the most creative, fun restaurants we've ever been to and we travel the world, seeking these types of places. My 7 year old had as much fun here as he did at Disney World. He's still "playing ninja" with all the souvenirs he got. His joy brought joy to me, my husband and our 13 year old daughter. We had a GREAT time!

The staff is wonderful in giving you a great experience. High energy, fixed any issues immediately (nothing major) the magic tricks are a bonus. Food is prepared and served so creatively, and the atmosphere and dining ambiance is spot on. The kids asked about coming back before we even left the place. Definitely going to return soon.

We unfortunately got a table a the very back that looks like it is normally a closet so we were quite removed from the energy of the restaurant.

The food is ok for kids. There are a lot of kids. Young kids. Ninja is good for younger kids.

The staff was good!

Would I go back? Not until I forget this last visit...

We thought the food was terrible! Just not good at all. I have never seen artichoke dip look the way it did here. The “ninjas” were hardly into their roles... maybe one person was but the others looked pained to have to “play the part”. My
Kids favorite part was the swords we bought that lot up. Nothing to do with the restaurant. The kids didnt eat a thing!

We came for a 10 year olds birthday party and it was a hit all around. "Best birthday ever!" Can't beat that. Great place to celebrate and have fun. The food was enjoyable, best we've had at a 'themed' restaurant. It's pricey, but the experience justifies the expense and you don't feel ripped off. The staff is wonderful, they seem to enjoy sneaking up on you and engaging the kids. Definitely recommend!!
