My husband and I brought our 9-year-old godson here with his parents, and it was definitely a night to remember.
You take an elevator down to the restaurant, and then depending on where they sit you, you walk through a winding cavern (past some cool private “dojo” booths), and over a little “bridge” to a cool seating area built into this “rocky” facade that had “foliage” growing out of it.
Our waiter was Angel and man, he was really into his ninja character, which thrilled my godson. They were “sparring” and sneaking up on each other the whole night. Each of the ninja waiters have distinct personalities, and they all do an excellent job balancing waiting on your table, entertaining your kid, and entertaining the adults too. We witnessed a couple of first dates at the tables around us, and we would totally take our other adult friends here. Our godson was so enamored by Angel that he was stopping him to tell him ninja jokes like they were old friends.
All the menu items with a ninja star symbol mean that the ninja waiters perform little tricks for you - so our rolls came out with “poison” mist, and they set our steaks on fire. It’s pricey if you’re used to standard Japanese takeout, but totally worth it. We got 2 rolls, my godson got the hamburger (but for the more adventurous kid, I would recommend the “castle”), and our godson’s parents got a pretty extravagant prix fixe that includes edamame, lobster bisque, calamari, the mango salmon roll, and a rib eye. They also ordered a sake tasting flight that they said was delicious, and they’re not big drinkers. Everything tasted awesome - and yes, we taste tested everything family style - but the theatrics made it that much better.
I really don’t know how I can top this birthday next year, but I do know that my husband and I will be back soon.
We go every year for my Grandson’s Birthday. No matter the age it’s a good time for all. Great themed restaurant done in a very authentic way. Food is good and the entertainment even better. Can’t wait to go back next year.
Took my 12 year old daughter to Ninja because going out bores her. We both had fun and she said “Dad, this is the best restaurant ever!”
Love this place the food was great and service even better entertainment is one of a kind.
Diner for 2 came out to 191.00 which is very pricey but worth it in a weird way lol
como siempre la atención muy buena y la comida rica.
The food was terrible!!! some of it was replaced (after negotiation with the waitress) as it was bad...the service was slow (we had to ask for water refill 3 times!)
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.
It's purely for experience. Food was really 'eh' and they literally rush you telling you they need the table after an hour and half.
