Came for a birthday, it was very fun, different than a typical dinner with magic and ninja scares, nice semi private tables for larger groups ; the food was good too and the drinks strong

Amazing experience. The waiter had me on edge the whole night because he just kept appearing out of nowhere. The magician left me confused and wondering how on earth did he do that, and the lamb chops were great. Would definitely go back again.

The atmosphere was ninja friendly. Our server was in character the whole time and kept us entertained. The magician was great and left us wondering how he did that. Presentation of food was great and the food did not disappoint. Overall we had a ninjatastic time!

I brought my husband here for his birthday for a night of sushi and kitschy fun. We were not disappointed. The ambiance is great, and the staff is wonderful at creating a mysterious and enjoyable atmosphere. The actors/servers did a great job of balancing serving duties with the subtle intensity of portraying a ninja. The food was good, but expensive- overall a great experience that brought us lots of smiles and laughter. I highly recommend it!

I have been here many times and will continue to come back. Any reason to go date night, birthday its the perfect place to have fun and dinner at the same time. From the village to the ninjas it's all worth the time and money spent.

The experience was fun, it's a unique concept and the wait staff was awesome. The experience felt more geared to kids though menu prices were what you'd expect from higher end steakhouses. Unfortunately, the food was what I'd expect from an Applebees.

Ninja New York was nice! The tricks and little gimmicks they did was great. I feel that the food was little over priced. Definitely a nice little place to take the kids.

Ninja NY is excellent for adults looking for a good meal and a place where kids can have a good time. I also think its a great use of a space in NYC that would otherwise go to waste. The staff is great. And I would go here with a group of friends who wanted to have some fun.

Ninja New York's less-than-mediocre food and beverages are waaaay overpriced. The "ninja experience" was just as underwhelming as well. The tables are close and the acoustics are such that you are listening in on the conversations of everyone around you as if you are sitting at their tables. But the clincher was when I decided to leave a $10 tip for a $208 tab. My party and I took the elevator down and as we approached the front door, our waiter comes rushing at us, our receipt in hand. I thought perhaps I had neglected to sign the receipt, but, no... the ninja waiter, in front of the hostess, pointed out that I had tipped only $10 and that that amount was way below what he should have received given the "performances" he and the "ninja" waiters gave us. I was stunned! I should have stuck to what I originally left but part embarrassment, part feeling sorry for the dude, made me give him another $10. What an awful experience!

A lot of fun! Place can get loud if hosting a lot of birthday parties so I recommend getting there right when it opens. Fun atmosphere & ambience. Prices are a little steap, but the food is delicious. Cocktails are great too! Ninja waiters are fun and entertaining and good with kids. Presentations great. Highly recommend- just make sure if you’re celebrating something special that you call ahead to let them know AND remind server once there.

While the restaurant environment was fun especially for the kids, the food did not equal the price of it. I found it overpriced and not enough variety.

This was my second visit here. Loved the first time. Not this visit. We had 2 cockroaches run over our table. One ran up my arm! They moved us and gave us fresh food but the experience was ruined. The manager never came to apologize. The extra ninja headbands did not help.

Our 8 year old son enjoyed it. I really enjoyed my dish..husband didn’t care for all of the sushi. The booth we got was very uncomfortable - you could not sit back and relax. The distance from the table to the attached booth seat was too far. They had 1 slim pillow to act as the back of the booth. I requested a few extra pillows so I could at least sit back a bit and the waiter forgot. Had to use my handbag and stack what few pillows were at our booth behind me to get a bit more comfortable. Terrible design!! Also thought the “ninjas” could have done more performing. They came by and scared us about 2 times. We were there for over 90 mins. The “ninjas” were just waiters who did only what they had to do - no special experience..nothing to get me to recommend to other friends to come.

Now I do recommend Ellen’s Stardust Diner - that was an experience!!!!
