Keep a tight hold of your little warrior’s hand as you follow the way of the Ninja over wooden bridges and through castle-like halls to find your table at this lantern-lit theme spot. Yes, it’s hokey, and yes, it’s a splurge, but action-loving kids will love having the beejeebers scared out of them by the restaurant’s black-masked martial-artists who leap out and yell, Ninja! The kids menu items, however—an 8oz burger with fries and chicken tempura, or the Ninja Castle, a stack of small sushi, mac and cheese, tempura chicken and other kid-pleasers at $25 and $28 respectively—are more likely to scare you. (Oh, and soda costs $4.50 a pop. Just saying.) No matter, you’ll soon forget all about it when the Ninja magician performs tricks at your table after the meal.
