Dessert at Ninja Akasaka

In June the family celebrated my son's birthday and Father's Day by having dinner at the Akasaka Ninja restaurant.  We ordered off the course menu thinking that it would make for a speedy dining experience. Time is always of the essence when dining with children, but it seemed that we were foiled. I'm not sure if I can really pan the experience. The atmosphere was very good but not as over the top as I expected. The place is themed as a ninja village and diners have their own ninja hut. The dishes for the adults were interesting and creatively presented. The table magic was a hit with the kids... but the place was pricey and the whole experience took too long....

I went to one of these restaurants (it's a chain store set up) and the magic trick was really good, did they do the card on the forehead? My favorite!

It's def. a place for dates rather than for families, and you would probably have enjoyed the atmosphere better if you'd been in a more romantic mood with only the mrs. to keep you distracted! (^-^;)

For kids in Japan it's family restaurants or Mr Donut all the way it seems!
