Closed Ninja, a surprising Japanese restaurant in New York!

New York is a city with many facets, and Ninja is one of them. It’s not just a restaurant, but a Japanese town! I will not tell you everything so you can live the experience to its fullest.

How is the restaurant?

Ninja is a unique restaurant. An elevator will take you to a real hidden Japanese town. A ninja will guide you to your table. Follow him carefully, because this restaurant is a maze!

The tables are in small corners of the restaurant.

And in basements like in our case.

It may sound strange to you, but go to the bathroom, I think they are the most original of New York City.

What to eat at Ninja?

Being a Japanese restaurant, Ninja prepare dishes with fish, meat, soups, salads and especially sushi.

We tried several recipes, all delicious. Order a dish with a ninja star on the menu!

It means that it comes with a special presentation. The waiter will perform a small show and the plate will be decorated with a “magic potion”.

The Dragon Roll is one of them.

As for drinks, you could share a beer like the one in the photo.

How much does eating there cost?

Prices may seem quite high, like the Set starting at $ 49. However, they have at least 3 courses and are very well served.
The sushi plastes cost from $10 up to $33. The portions are large enough so you can share.

I had loved the atmosphere of Sakagura, near Grand Central. But I must admit that Ninja is even more incredible. I love both of them, thanks to their decoration and food. It’s a complete tie for me!


My fist trip to New York was in 2007 when I was working for an airline company. I was born in the US, I lived in Mexico, in Europe in between Belgium, Spain and France… Well, let’s say I know about travelling! I bring my experience of NYC to the blog, to provide the best travel tips you could imagine!
