Needless to say, the concept of this restaurant is "Ninja." So, many dishes are cooked black, Ninja's preferred color which hides themselves in the dark. For making black, it seems they used black sesame, squid ink, etc. which we can eat. For overseas visitors, it may look like creepy:)
The dishes are creative, and focuses on the impact and appearance rather than taste(but the taste itself might be good for this kind of restaurant). The presentation itself is very nice. Sometimes Ninjya set on fire, threw hot stone into a pot, etc.
While we enjoy the meal, a Ninja master visited us and showed exciting magics just in front of us! I forgot the time. Worth for visit. The price, particularly of drinks is higher than average izakaya/restaurant, but acceptable level. My rating is 2.5 for food and 5 for service out of 5. Gochiso-samadeshita!
