Have chosen the buffet. My father commented that it was the "cheapest" type of buffet he had ever eaten. Not worth the price. The ninja theme is not fantastic. I should have just trust the reviews and not visit this resturant. Food wise is not too bad but if you are looking for themed restaurant, this is definitely not a... More

We took our two sons, 10 and 12, thinking they'd love it. It was not at all what we expected. No show, just a few magic tricks at the end of our meal. The lower level cave-like setting was not what we expected. Everyone was in their own cave, so you couldn't see anyone else from your table. The staff... More

Dark rooms, fairly ordinary service. I was expecting a ninja show, but it was about 2 minutes long of magic tricks. the food was ok, nothing special, Desserts were extraordinary, but that's about it. Save your money

I've been this restaurant with Japanese. It was just like ninja costume play no more than that. Later i heard staffs were talking in an archaic way or something. So all customer expect me could understand and so laugh. Not really recommended to those who don't know Japanese well.

This was quite frankly the most absurd and pointless waste of money I've ever had. Do not go under any circumstances. Ridiculously expensive and appalling show. It makes absolutely no sense - I was called on stage to tell the audience whether I had any talents; then they just made me do a strange gun-like gesture with my hands and... More

Visited there for a friend's birthday, all you can eat of average food selection and very limited options for vegetarians. The place provided surprise BD small cake for the occasion free of charge, this was the good part in the visit.

Fake place with average food, high prices and lots of gimmicks. It's really surprising that anyone would go here. They do magic tricks at the table, but that's the good part!

Ninja Kyoto is located in Kawaramachi, with a building hard to miss. The dark and purple exterior welcome guests to a unique dining experience. I opted for the 'Labyrinth Restaurant' option, and was ushered by a well-in-character kunoichi (female ninja) through the fun labyrinth, ending in the dark, mysterious restaurant with caves as private dining areas! The whole experience is... More

Apparently there are a couple of different experiences you can have when you go to this restaurant: 1. Watch the 40 minute show and while watching the show you order from an a la carte menu. This is what we chose to do, three of us in the group, myself (33 y/o and my mother and father) as we thought... More

Whilst out & about we stumbled across this restaurant & decided to give the themed dining experience a go. Brilliant! It's cheesy as all hell but what do you expect? Get involved & enjoy it! Decor was great - private dining in your own cave. The themed food was actually really good & reasonably priced - 2x starters, 2x mains,... More

Staying in Shinkyogoku Shopping District

Neighbourhood Profile
Shinkyogoku Shopping District
Those who delight in shopping and cuisine will find themselves at home in Shinkyogoku. Lauded and visited by locals for its Nishiki Market, where baskets of fragrant spices, dried fish, and just-fried foods are piled high along the snaking streets of its enclosed outdoor shopping spaces, Shinkyogoku is not only a hub for fresh fare, but also for fast fashion fixes. Trends-in-the-making can be spotted in the tall windows of several one-of-a-kind stores featuring local labels and modish boutiques. Arcades, outdoor concert spaces, mega department stores, and small, enchanting cafes have sprung up to accommodate the increasing traffic. Whether looking for souvenirs and kitsch on Shinkyogoku Street, or scoping out the massive food court and restaurant floor at Takashimaya Department store, there's something for every wallet or purse, and a buyer for every item.
