Ninja Akasaka, Tokyo’s Themed Restaurant ( 忍者赤坂レストラン )

ninja akasaka directions
Be warned foodies, this is not your usual kind of restaurant! Diners enter this Japanese eatery through secret doors in pitch dark led by a Ninja. Even the entrance is hard to locate; it took us some effort to find the main entrance to the restaurant which is a small black door almost non-existent.

Yap, I am talking about Ninja Akasaka ( 忍者赤坂 ) in Tokyo. Once you are inside the Ninja restaurant, you will be greeted by Ninjas who would usher you to your village.

What kind of food will diners get? Well, you will get Ninja-inspired dishes like this Shuriken Star-Blades Grissini ( 手裏剣グリッシーニ ) and most importantly, the restaurant serves really delicious food. Need the attention of waiters there? Well, you gotta first search for the service bell which is hidden under the table. Sounds fun? Let's explore together!

During my last media trip to Japan to review the Tokyo DisneySea, I wanted to dine in a really cool restaurant. I wanted to try something different other than the media tastings that were arranged for us as it was my birthday. The reason was partly due to my son joining us for this trip; we would like to give him a nice treat.

Gotta admit we are fussy eaters, and food served in themed restaurants are mostly junk food and highly-priced, sad to say. Some of the themed restaurants in Tokyo which we had short-listed were Robot Restaurant ( ロボットレストラン ), Alice in Wonderland ( 魔法の国のアリス ) and Zauo ( ざうお ), The Lockup (ロックアップ), and Sengoku Buyuden ( 戦国武勇伝 ). These unique restaurants are all located in Shinjuku. Then there is also Alcatraz ER ( アルカトラズ イーアール ) in Shibuya, but no more boring Maid Cafes as I had already been to one previously, don’t waste your money there.

After reading how bad the food are in some of the reviews, hubby and I narrowed down to Ninja Akasaka ( 忍者 屋敷レストラン ). The Ninja restaurant serves both Ala Carte and Course Menu, but I highly recommend you to order the Course Menu for each person + few Ala Carte dishes featuring their Signature items. Food was great and fanciful at Ninja Akasaka that evening! The three of us had lots of fun dining there, but be prepared to spend about USD 70 for each pax excluding drinks.
