Whoa! What a night at the Robot Restaurant in Japan. My friend and I have been traveling Japan for a few weeks before arriving in Tokyo, and had heard stories about the wild, exciting nightlife in Shinjuku. A night at the Robot Restaurant was the perfect introduction to the scene out here. We first had dinner at Sengoku Buyuden, a delicious Samurai themed restaurant. The menu was all in Japanese, which can be scary, but I was very happy to get into the spirit of the night and just sort of see what happened! All the food was wonderful and it was a great experience. Then it was a short walk to the Robot Restaurant. It was easy to find the ticket office with all the lights and signs, and before you know it we are in the lounge with a drink (I recommend a highball with Suntory Whiskey, kanpai!). They usher us into the show and we had front row seats RIGHT in the action. It was a blast! The actors in costumes really look to be enjoying their time out there, which for me made the whole experience. And the larger robots are insane! Lots of laughs and action the whole time, what a show! I am giving this 4.5 stars, just because I felt they stopped the show too much to try and sell you drinks and popcorn. But all in all this was an awesome introduction to Tokyo, worth the price of admission, and I will recommend it to anyone coming to Tokyo.
Unique, captivating and delicious in Tokyo! On a recent trip to Tokyo I had the pleasure of visiting Sengoku Buyuden for some authentic and delicious Japanese food! We were led through a beautiful atrium where we were seated in our own private booth, separated by flowing curtains which allowed for privacy without being disconnected. From then on we were treated to course after course of delicious, fresh sushi, meat, soup and other seafood! The final piece was cooked right in front of us on a hot pot and was delicious. I must admit I am not a big Japanese food fan but this certainly changed my opinion, loved it all! Following this we made the short walk to the robot restaurant, a true icon of the Tokyo entertainment scene and something I had been very curious, and excited to experience for some time. Once we stepped inside the kaleidoscope of colors and reflections I knew I was in for a treat. After enjoying a quick welcome drink we descended many flights of stairs to a stage similar to a fashion runway with seats on both sides! We took our seat and from then on were transfixed with the choreography, pyrotechnics, sights, sounds, neon lights, costumes! We were transformed into a different reality and had to pick up my jaw from the floor many times. It was truly unique and something that must be seen with one’s own eyes! If I had to describe the show I would say an electronic Mardi Gras on steroids, with lasers, floats, music, robots and electronics!
Thoroughly enjoyed the experience from the kitsch waiting area to the performance itself. Completely insane, colourful, energetic and a must see whilst in Tokyo.
For Samurai restaurant, it was enjoyable however no English is spoken so it we were unsure of what we were eating, whether any more food was to come or when the experience had finished.

Great atmosphere, fun presentation, tasty food but very small amount. I left the restaurant feeling a bit ripped off having paid for a dinner and only got a few tiny portions.
The food choices at Samurai Themed restaurant were poor. The Robot show was cheesy, and waste of money.
The Samurai Restaurant was very bad! There was no English menu and we were given no choice of meal option and because the communication was so difficult (not the restaurant fault but you would think if they take bookings from Viator they would have English menus) she ended up just bringing us food.
