Dining with Ninjas, no seriously.


Ninja New York is a restaurant in lower Manhattan that serves modern Japanese cuisine in a traditional ninjitsu mountain village setting. Sound interesting? Read on.

In addition to the interesting decor and ambiance, all the waiters are dressed as ninjas, blending in and out of the dark as your food is served. Every group has their own private dining area, whether it be a Japanese house or a cave in the mountain. Apparently, the ninjas also perform magic tricks throughout the night :
Because there's a touch of theme park in all aspects of the dining experience, expect the unexpected. Think Orlando carnival, not Big Apple boƮte. So, when your waiter arrives to take your order and opens his "wallet," steel yourself for a display of fireworks, as stupefying flames ignite seemingly from nowhere. We don't want to give away too many secrets about the magic that awaits you, because surprise is part of the experience and fun. But, know that your meal will be peppered not merely with condiments and savory flavors, but with entertainment and ecstatic giggles, as well. (And, these are tax-free!)
The rest of the article goes on to talk about the food and the cost ($100+ per person). Now that it's clear this is a unique restaurant, offering a special experience obtained no where else (well, except for Japan where it has a sister restaurant), would you be willing to spend the money?

I personally would. While pricey, it definately sounds like fun. There really isn't a price that can be put on unique, once in a lifetime experiences. I'll probably go try this place out sometime later this year.

Are you willing to spend more to go to unique or top rated restaurants?

dude, give me the 100 bucks. not only am i japanese, but ill jump around in my underwear and do ninja moves while serving you sushi in your apartment. once in a lifetime kind of stuff.

sad to say, its not far off from what i usually end up doing when i come visit you guys... maybe not original, but definately authentic.

Sounds kinda fun... I used to love going to one of those Japanese places where they cook everything at your table and do knife tricks and flick shrimp at you, etc. But the food would have to be pretty special too at $100 per person. I'll definitely spend money on a great meal, but the entertainment aspect is not my priority. On the other hand, I might have to give furiouspato a call when my birthday rolls around...

Personally i prefer dining at Headhunter Village, where the stew of the night is YOU.

You sit in an iron Cauldron while a man with a bone through his nose stirs the pot and adds potatos, carrots and other essential spices to the cannibal stew.
