Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the Tokyo Robot Evening Cabaret Show. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
Once upon a time, Las Vegas and Tokyo had a one-night stand. The result: Tokyo Robot Restaurant! A friend and I went (two mecha fans) and had a fantastic time. The show is over-the-top lights, crazy costumes, loud music, and robots. Giant shark! Giant dragon! Taiko drum performance! Motorcycles! Robots everywhere! This is NOT an evening of high-brow entertainment. It is NOT for those who suffer seizures due to bright lights and loud noises. It is a wild, often confusing explosion of Japanese-y craziness. The show is appropriate for middle-school kids and older, in my parental opinion. One of the employees told me that the show is less burlesque than it used to be because they are trying to make it more appealing for a wider group of people. In other words: more robots and explosions, less girl dancer scanty dressing. Sorry for those who are looking for nudity, there isn't any. Bikini-type outfits on the dancers is as far as it goes. We bought our tickets through Viator, took our printouts to the show on the night of the performance. Our tickets came with a bento meal (chosen at check-in), one water bottle, and one drink option of choice--to include alcohol. The bento meals were 'meh'. (Eat before you go to the show.) Bring 500 yen coins if your want extra drinks during the show. A beer girl with a keg on her back walks around and pours beer during set changes. All in all, a fun, raucous evening of entertainment. If you go to Tokyo, make time for the Robot Restaurant show!
The show is amazing. We had a blast and the meal wasn't terrible like some reviews we'd read. Helpful staff who are fluent in English are never far away. Get there early for a relaxing drink and then on to the main show. We suggest going with someone you know because the seats are small.
This place was too awesome to put into words! I had such a blast that I would recommend anyone going to Japan to come here and experience this.
This show is a must do. It was hilarious and entertaining. Make sure you give yourself plenty to time get there as I got little lost and ran late but they were very accommodating and let me in anyway. Don't get the Bento Box it's not worth it.
The robot restaurant did not disappoint anyone, show was outstanding. The waiting room before the show was indescribable. Don't miss the toilet... Take your camera
Highlight of our time in Tokyo, has to be seen to be believed! The waiting room in itself was an experience we won't forget! Print a detailed map before you go, we got lost for quite a while-it's definitely not that close to the station. The food wasn't as bad as some reviews said either. Book it!!
Amazing and absolutely fascinating!! I
Would highly recommend it to anyone visiting shinjuku.
Truly worth a visit to this show. My wife and I enjoyed every moment! Thumbs up! :)
Very unique. Very laser. Very large robots. Amazing how they have all those "toys" in the building to bring out on the narrow stage-like area. Although it calls itself a cabaret, we brought 10 years olds and it was fine. The barmaids have on clothes that are no worse than a Hooters restaurant and the show itself is all about the lasers and robots. This is a very unique experience - I would expect to see a lot of 1s and a lot of 5s (either you like it or hate it). The food was eh. Get the drinks early (use all your tickets right away or you will end up with draft beer during the show).
Colourful, crazy, chintzy, cool. "What on Earth did we just sit through?" Something otherworldly and awesome, I reckon. Get there an hour early to enjoy the waiting space (perhaps have a camera ready).
