A new restaurant modestly named “Robot Restaurant” has opened in Shinjuku on 18 July but already has generated a lot of buzz on the internet. Its quick surge in popularity may have to do with the rumored post-apocalyptic giant robot show that goes on while you eat and is said to cost 10 billion yen (US$127M) to create. We had to go and see if this is for real.
To sum up Robot Restaurant in a few words, they would be “furious waves of pure entertainment.” Even though at first glance this establishment seems purely for guys, the organized chaos is sure to entertain women as well.
Located near the heart of Kabukicho in Shinjuku, Tokyo, you shouldn’t have any trouble finding this establishment decorated to the hilt in shimmering lights. Upon entering you’ll feel like you slipped into another dimension surrounded by psychedelic lighting and Valkyrie robots.
Entry to Robot Restaurant is a flat fee of 3000 yen (US$38) which covers the show, seat, food, a drink, and service charge. The seating is narrowly arranged across the room with the stage running along both sides putting you right in the middle of the show. The food is a simple lunch box of snack foods like sushi rolls and fried egg.
