We went for a bachelorette trip to New York and ninja was absolutely amazing!! Our server was the best we’ve ever had! He catered to our every need!! I wish I got his name :( he was amazing!! Would definitely go back in a heartbeat.
The food was delicious and presentation more than exceeded expectations. We didn’t want to leave!!!

The atmosphere and experience is super cool. The menu is definitely lacking in many ways but it was a beautiful restaurant and fun to see. I recommend you go but don’t expect the best food. It is also very pricey.

The food was simply not good. Every order in party. Very, very bad actually. It does not appear that enough attention is paid toward putting out a quality product. Not necessarily preparation, although the “presentations” touted are underwhelming at best. More or less low quality food product. The “theme” does not do enough to overcome how bad the food is. Never put out another review in my life. Although they happily took items off the bill (that were sent back after 1 bite)....I still feel like I got ripped off.

I went with my kids and they had lots of fun. I admit I had fun too bc I got a kick out of watching them excited. Food is fine. Pricey for what you get, but fun all the same.

Went to Ninja NY had a great time so much fun, and worth the experience. If you have a great personality, and like surprises this is perfect for you. I love ninja New York! I also love the food, the sushi was like butter, the staff did an amazing job, and the decor was so creative. It was all around a magical night may God bless this establishment you rock!!!

We brought my sister and nephew (6 years old) that were visiting from Florida. My nephew loved this place! It's definitely good for kids. The decorations were on point - even in the bathroom. The staff was great and the presentations were cool. We jumped several times with so many ninjas popping out. Overall, it was a fun experience. It was pretty pricey, so we just wouldn't come often.

The atmosphere was cool. A couple of ninja’s jumped out on the way to the table and that got the kids excited. Food was terrible and overpriced. Kids meal was $28 for hamburger, chicken and fries. Service was non existent. We didn’t even see our waiter again after food was ordered. No drink refills, no condiments for the burger/fries, no check. We had to flag down another waiter to pay. There are too many good places in NYC to waste your time here.

I hate a great time. It was a very nice experience. I loved the private dining experience with the magic shows the ninjas the scroll menu. some might think the price is a little high. It’s worth every penny because there are no other places around like such. I traveled from Philadelphia to come to ninja for his birthday with my two other kids. I’m sure my son will never forget his 12th birthday.

The staff was great. They were a lot of fun. I can't stress that enough. It's a great place for kids too. I was there with another couple (we're both in our 30's) and it was fun. HOWEVER, the food was bad. We expected that it would be great but none of us finished our meals. It didn't stop us from having a good time but I'd recommend maybe sticking with Sushi if you go and you should be all set.

After watching You Tube videos I was expecting a lot more than we got. It could be that we were only able to get a 5pm reservation (next available was 8:30) but it was toddler and kid central. The menu is very "diverse" - the sushi was VERY good, no complaints there was also an ABUNDANCE of french fries, mac and cheese, chicken fingers and the like. HOWEVER we ordered the "artichoke dip" and it was at best artichoke inspired-kinda gross. The Sake was low budget too. Our waiter was fabulous but there was no surprise attacks like we saw online. Our waiter really played the part though. I was NOT HAPPY that they also have strolling magicians who ask for tips. VERY out of place if you ask me. That really made the whole experience feel like an Asian version of Chucky Cheese. This is a great tourist trap, but that is not what we were looking for. For the 3 of us the bill came to just about $200. Great for kitch, fun for kids - grownups - spend your money somewhere else.

The food was good. The service was downright horrible. We got sat and then just as we got comfortable we were moved again. No one came around to ask if we wanted a drink while we waited to get a table, even though we were handed a drink menu. We were then sat at a four top, but the host did not remove the extra settings (there were only two of us dining). We ordered sushi as an appetizer, but received no soy sauce. Ten different workers passed our table with empty hands and not one cleared our app plates. I even stacked them neatly and placed them at the end of the table. Our steak finally arrived by itself and with nothing else. I wish our server had told us that it came by itself so we could order some sides. I figured for $43 it would at least come with a vegetable. We were sharing the steak, but were given no side plates. We had to both eat out of the cast iron skillet. Our water glasses remained empty throughout the meal. Needless to say, this experience was a huge let down. I was looking forward to dining here for quite some time, after seeing it on a TV show.

It was an interesting experience. Not my favorite. Food was ok. We may have ordered not great dishes. But it was interesting, unusual spices. The chicken was good. Spinach dip was good. Otherwise very expensive.

It seems like a place for families with smaller kids. My teenagers and I weren’t that amused with folks jumping out at us.

Wonderful “experience” and delicious food! The place was nicely decorated with different locations available for seating. We sat in the “Rock Garden” area and had an area that felt semi- private tucked away in a corner. Plenty of entertainment and noises to keep our kids entertained and not affect other parties.

The presentation was the most fun part of the meal. We ordered both versions of the kids meal- one in a three tiered pagoda style building and the other presented with smoke (dry ice in water). My prime ribeye was presented with a “Ring of Fire” and the Ninja Star cake was presented in a fun and interactive way.

Food overall was delicious. Sushi was very fresh, the steak was perfectly cooked served with a slightly spicy sauce (definitely recommended).

The price is a little on the higher end but nothing out of the ordinary for downtown prices. I think the experience, presentation, and quality of food definitely make Ninja NY a tremendous value and worth the visit.
