Just opposite train station Akasaka is the culinary temple for Tokyo’s hungry ninja fans. Specially dressed ninja waiters lead diners through an underground fantasy world with built-in obstacles. A drawbridge to the main dining room opens only after a holler from the head ninja. On the menu are hundreds of differently decorated ninja dishes. Careful with the exploding snail dish, while serving, the ninja waiter lets a jet of fire shoot across the dish. Also recommended is the bonsai dessert. The mix of green tea, chocolate, ice-cream, bananas and strawberry really looks like a miniature tree. After the meal a ninja magician presents some convincing tricks at your table.
Hmmm, I'm going to Tokyo next week. I don't think I will be near there though. Maybe when hubby gets back. I was curious where it was. Uh Oh...My kids think they need to go too. I have one looking over my shoulder. Is it appropriate for tweens?
My friends went there last night, it seems they had a great time. Though VERY pricey. They a had a fire dish and a fog dish amongst other things. The waitress walked them out, did a flip and then unrolled a scroll that said "Thank you, come again".
Out of curiousity, what is the average price per person, say for a moderate meal and maybe an alcoholic beverage or two? I was thinking of bringing some friends, but don't want them to feel oblidged to spend alot of money.
That doesn't sound overly expensive. I pay around $40-60 a person in 2nd grade Japanese restaurants around here. Paying only double is not that big of a deal especially if it provides a unique experience
Jeez, $40 to $60? You must be eating at better places than I am. It's usually around $20 where I'm at. The nicest place we have is probably closer to $30, and of course drinks add to that really quick (I generally don't drink much at dinner), but... damn.
