Nos gusto mucho el local pero faltaron sorpresas para los turistas. Nos dio la sensación de que estaba más animado con los clientes autóctonos que con los de fuera. Nos gusto porque está nuy bien ambientado pero nos falto acción para lo que explican en el anuncio que nos vamos a encontrar

This restaurant is geared toward providing entertainment, which it does quite well. Our server was super and made the experience very special. That said, the food itself is horrible (think grocery store sushi and Trader Joe’s frozen meals) at a very high price point. Ultimately you pay for the kids to enjoy some cool gimmicks and the ninja concept, but adults should plan to eat afterward.

Great for kids. Fun for adults. Servers and magician were attentive. Bill was surprisingly not bad. All in all great experience.

Been here a few times now when in NYC, never disappointed. Each time I take someone new they love the entire experience. Worth checking out for anyone thinking about it, or looking for a cool place to get dinner.

My family had an amazing and memorable experience at Ninja! My kids are 5 and 9 and loved every minute from the food surprises to the personal magician! I also loved that we had a private room! We would definitely go back! Highly recommend! Fun for the kids and adults!

I took my boyfriend here for his birthday and everything about NINJA blew us away. Really made his birthday so enjoyable and special. Our server's name was Aniel I think, he was the absolute best, so kind and funny. We really loved it!

This place needs a major revamp. Interesting concept with potential but everything in the place is ancient including both the drink and the food menu. I can’t imagine they get very many revisits at this one stop tourist attraction. The sushi is below par unless you enjoy tasteless and cold shrimp tempura rolls. The walk back from the bathroom was a sticky one... need i say more?

Went with family , 2 kids -13,14. Walking in - it’s a cool concept, lots of corridors, stairs , etc- it’s a theme restaurant and the staff are dressed as ninjas - there are supposed to be a lot of ninja styled tricks. Most of them consisted of jumping up and yelling NINJA! food was really not good and it was expensive . There was a ninja at the very end who came and did a couple card tricks - that was ok. Definitely do not recommend this place for the food or the money

Server seemed distracted throughout- we asked to take our leftovers and they never brought them back to table. I asked for the bill and he didn’t come back for a while and when he did return he asked if he had given it to me already..? Also, our drinks that were supposed to have ninja presentation were simply placed on the table. Food was good. The magician that came around to the tables was fantastic- he saved the experience overall

Went for my brother’s 40th. We had the most hilarious time. They treated the birthday “boy” like a rockstar or should I say rockninja and he could’ve keep the smile off his face. The food was delicious as well. It was a most unexpected evening and we loved every second. Thanks Ninja!

We just loved our visit! I made reservations a few days in advance so all I could get was Sunday evening instead of Fri or Sat but I think that we had a better experience because it wasn't so busy. No giving too much away, I love how you enter the "village" and the fact that the restaurant does indeed look like a dark, mysterious ninja village. We walked around the whole place and the little twisty avenues are so fun! The decor was perfect and the servers were all on their game--happy to act as "ninjas" with their fake "attacks" and rolling the menu out at you, etc. Very fun. The food was good but the special effects made it so much better. The value was pretty good for NYC. My 9 yo got a pagoda tower and in each section was a different part of his meal--he really loved that. Also, the extras you can get for the kids are cool but I liked that the adult meals had fun elements to them too. I almost never repeat a restaurant but I would love to come here with friends and I would definitely recommend this to everyone. The whole "experience" dining made for a really fun night for our family. Fun fun fun, and yummy.
