NINJAS! Righteous!

October 27, 2005

I emailed this restaurant review to a bunch of folks and then Dice asked me to post it. I nearly lost it at the combination of the first paragraph and associated photo (which I wish I could post here, but can't figure out how to).

The review itself is about as scathing as one can imagine but I've pretty much come to the conclusion that anything involving ninjas is hilarious, particularly when the review finds its way to this: "{the restaurant} should respond to an expressed interest in sake with a presentation of its sake list, not with the words "I'll bring half a liter," which is what a ninja said."

Which is what a ninja said!

edit: added the info that schar wanted to add.
CONFUSING the point of a restaurant with the mission of a "Saturday Night Live" skit, Ninja New York deposits you in a kooky, dreary subterranean labyrinth that seems better suited to coal mining than to supping. You are greeted there by servers in black costumes who ceaselessly bow, regularly yelp and ever so occasionally tumble, and you are asked to choose between two routes to your table.
The first is described by a ninja escort as simple and direct. The second is "dark, dangerous and narrow," involving a long tunnel and a drawbridge that descends only when your escort intones a special command, which he later implores you to keep secret.
