Ok, I am just kidding. If you want to see it, just click here and it'll show up :)
Before I got there, I did manage to find out that there are 2 entrances into the restaurant. The regular one and the dangerous one. We chose the dangerous one. Choose your path wisely!!
Even the menus are cool! When our "ninja" pulled it out, she does it really quickly with flair. Like a real ninja :)
Everything seemed very Japanese. Even the tea pot looks and feels very authentic. The tea was very good green tea.
Let me show you the food first. My friend and I shared a Sasuke meal. It's $68. First, we had the appetizer, Batto Jitsu. It has tuna and beet in ginger sauce and a bowl of tuna confit with Sira-ae sauce. It definitely looks very cool!
Dry ice is so much fun! The only downside? It was just ok. The tuna confit was a little bit bland. I don't eat beets so it was just ok.
Next we had spicy tuna roll and shrimp tempura roll. I like these! The spicy tuna didn't feel that spicy when I ate the first 2 pieces. Then, the heat started to kick in and by the fourth piece, my mouth was burning! I really like the little white balls on the outside. I think it's something like rice cake. It is crunchy and adds to the texture of the rolls.
This is one of the best fish dish I have ever had. This is skate fish & ume. The fish is deep fried. When I saw the oil on the plate, I was a little bit apprehensive. But, the ume-plum butter sauce was so good! It has just the right amount of tartness. I think that's why it didn't feel as oily as it looks.
It was served with cabbage that was very good too. It's lighter than rice but compliments the fish very well.
For the last course, we had a 22oz ribeye steak with wasabi, pepper saiko, miso and teriyaki sauce on the side. It also came with a side of taro and cauliflower gratin, which was very creamy and just great. We were pretty full by the time the steak came. But, it was so good! All the sauces were great. It was the first time I had steak with wasabi. It was interesting. Definitely fun to have all the sauces to try.
Then, it was dessert time!!! This is the pina colada. I like the description: variety of fruits and vanilla ice cream "sinking into mysterious pineapple and coconut pond". More dry ice fun!
My friends each ordered Kunoichi course. First up was the "Aburi" Shrimp Salad. It was on fire!!!
This is how it looked after the fire went out. Friend's verdict? Not a very exciting "Good".
Second course was the same spicy tuna and shrimp tempura rolls that we got. Third course was the roasted salmon with red pepper garlic sauce with grated apples. Yum!! The sauce was very good.
Fourth course was the Volcano. Looks so interesting right? On the outside, it was an onion. On the inside was really tender beef brisket. It was good too.
We ordered 3 course meals, so we got 3 desserts. The rose in the middle is part of the rose chocolate. The chocolate mousse was very rich, but not too sweet.
This is the bonsai. Looks very cool! But, definitely didn't taste that great. The branches are fried dough I think. And the brown stuff is just chocolate. Not very sweet, very bland. The pina colada was definitely the best.
During dinner, the ninjas will periodically come and scare you. Some may put a sword to your throat. Even when they come in to check on you, they do it in a sneaky way. This guy was fun! He saw us taking pictures of random stuff and he was like "you want to take pictures of something more fun?" So, he pretended to assassinate all of us.
Doesn't he look scary? If you want to scare your friends, make sure they sit closest to the door. They are the ones that will get assassinated the most.
There was also a magician that came around and did tricks for us! I am going to keep the tricks to myself because it's definitely more fun to see that for yourself. We took a picture of him in the hall way. He's really tall!
My camera was running low on battery so I didn't get to take more pictures of the decor. But, as we were leaving, one of the ninjas gave us a tour. The whole place really looks like a ninja castle. They also have a garden area that looks really different. I am going to try to get reservations on that side next time I go.
Another fun part of the restaurant is the bathroom. They have the Japanese toilets that will wash your "junks" according to my friend. I didn't try it, but if you ever wanted to try it, here's your chance.
All in all, it was a fun experience! Most of the food was great and it was just very fun. I think kids will really like it there. I like all the semi-private dining rooms. They even have tiny rooms for 2 people. All the ninjas look like they have a lot of fun working there. The whole place just feel very positive and fun and they really make it feel like a ninja castle. Even the front door was cloaked in mystery. For a big restaurant, the door was really tiny and it only had one sign that says "Ninja".
I highly recommend that you make reservations. We tried to make reservations for the garden a week in advance and they didn't have any tables. Go check it out and let me know what you think!
