*** CLOSED on December 31st, 2018 *** Please visit their Tokyo locations in Akasaka & Shinjuku. Ninja Kyoto Restaurant and Labyrinth is the perfect place for dining entertainment and ninja fans. The restaurant is designed as a dark labyrinth staffed with multilingual ninja warriors. Patrons have the option to dine with a visit from the Master Ninja magician, others are welcome to see the dynamic ninja show, “Dining Theater Ninja” (Saturday, Sundays and Holidays only), and meal selections range from all you can eat shabu shabu, sweets buffet or creative la carte dining. For our three days in Kyoto with kids recommendations check here.
We visited on a weekday and dined at their restaurant and labyrinth. Visitors are welcomed at the entrance and taken into a dark and mysterious underground tunnel. Give the magic password to open a cave door and be led to your table where a menu of creative items can be ordered. We ordered a few of their signature dishes; the Shuriken star-blades grissini with cream pate de foie gras dip 680 JPY, Snow crab and grapefruit served with a sword trick 1280 JPY, and the NINJA teleportation-chicken steak 1980 JPY. `A` loved the shuriken shaped cripsy bread and pulling the samurai sword from a decorative plate releasing a dry ice smoke. He was mesmerized when the ninja waiter transformed of a flaming egg to a fully cooked chicken steak. Mid-meal the Master Ninja visited our table and entertained us with a number of exciting magic tricks that kept`A` wanting more.
Ninja Kyoto Restaurant and Labyrinth was a unique and entertaining dining experience. Highly recommend.
