At the Robot Restaurant, dancing girls perform alongside female robots, dinosaurs, pandas and ninjas in a mesmerizing extravaganza of flashing neon lights and techno music. You will be amazed by the gorgeous interior, neon light, and sound show that features robots, dancers, samurai, ninjas, and more.

Adults and children alike can come and enjoy this amazing show!

Enjoy a menu of Japanese dishes at a venue uniquely decorated with samurai armor. Start with either dinner or the show, depending on option selected at booking.

The restaurant provides private rooms in which you can experience the living life of Japanese warlords in which you may feel as if you strayed into a battlefield.

First show starts at 3:30 and you can make your reservation online or go at the time you want hoping there will be available seats. The show is loud and bright but they provide head phone for kids and anyone who needs them.

Enjoy and dance along to the wild music and bizarre routines during this unforgettable show. You will walk out with a smile on your face, wondering "what was that"? It is one of those things that you have to see to believe.

When the 10 billion yen Robot Restaurant opened in July of 2012, it was originally targeted Japanese businessmen. However, as word of the unique dinner cabaret spread across the world, the audience shifted toward foreign tourists in search of that “only in Japan!” experience.

These days, the majority of customers are non-Japanese, and at any given show, you are likely to find a number families with children in attendance.

The show lasts 90 minutes and is separated into three acts with food, drinks, and souvenirs between each act.

There are various websites to order tickets so make sure you order them before the show.

The restaurant is located in the middle of Kabuki-cho, Shinjuku, Tokyo.
