Saw this restaurant on Open Table while we were on a family vacation in Japan. Boy was it fun! The staff speak English and really make the “ninja experience” fun with some magic mixed in as well.

The food was delicious. We went with one of the pre-fix menus because it really covered all the bases.

Of course the sake and beer options made it a perfect night!

お料理は大人一名で頼めるコースが無くて残念でしたが、子どものお子様プレートは量も程よくあり、とても喜んでいました!
忍者さんのパフォーマンスには子ども達も大喜びで旅の思い出が増えとても良かったです。
また京都に行った際には利用したいと思います。

Overall the restaurant is great and the service as well. But there was a misunderstanding in the menu and the staff is not well-versed in english. I asked if the set is per person or per couple and to my understanding it was per couple. But when the bill arrived, it was double. And for tourists who are trying to budget their money wisely, is was a big setback for us. But overall, the experience was great. The price is just really on the higher end.

I booked the buffet, but end up getting there early. I asked the lady if we can go in earlier, but ended up with something more fun! We love the food and the performance, and we were surprised that this dinner was so much fun! I will definitely come back again with friends, and you should bring your friend along if they love ninja and surprises!

We found this restaurant while searching for places to eat during our trip to Japan. We were not disappointed. It is not a kitschy, touristy experience. The food and service was great and the ambiance and authenticity very fun. The magician at the end was incredible! Overall, a wonderful experience.

The Ninja Kyoto restaurant was a disappointment overall. We speak a little Japanese, but not much so we had a pretty difficult time communicating with our Ninja waiter.
The trip to our seat was very interesting and enjoyable. The waiter misled us (not on purpose) as to how much food we should order. We weren't sure whether the portions were individual or group. We ordered thinking they were group portions but they turned out to be individual.
The prices were pretty steep for the portion size and the service overall was not very good.
The Ninja show was a 5 minute magic show that was OK, but not great. I thought we would get some kind of Ninja show instead.
The quality of the food was good, just not enough of it.
Overall, the experience was slightly fun but the rest of the meal was mediocre at best.

We didn't have much expectation on food quality at a themed restaurant, Restaurant Ninja way exceeded our expectation on food quality! Very delicious!

It's a very good place for kids, my 4-yo son had a very good time, the ninja came in from time to time to do some tricks and magic! High recommend for family with kids.
