Dinner time at the latest attraction in Tokyo which involves Japanese girls, tanks, robots, pandas, dinosaurs and neon lights. The most insane dinner ride of my life.
The Robot Restaurant is a brand new attraction in Tokyo where you can enjoy a feast while being entertained by Japanese girls and other numerous events.
The show is only 3 hours and you need to reserve upfront. The great thing is that the staff speaks English so you could call in from your hotel room.
I was little bit disappointed with the small dinner box but luckily some Australians next to me offered me their dinner boxes so I had a feast to enjoy.
The show starts off with a fun dance with swords but quickly gets stranger and stranger with fighting robots, Pandas on cows, dinosaur fighting girls, girls hanging from an airplane and giant tanks.
Fitted out at a cost of 10 Billion YEN ($100 Million), Robot Restaurant looks like something straight out of a futuristic movie, all migraine-inducing neon, video screens and mirrors (and if you think that's bad, just check the website).
Customers pay a 5,000 YEN charge ($50), the drink menu only extends as far as canned beer, chu-hai and bottled tea, sold at the kind of prices you'd expect at a baseball game.
The entry fee also includes a bento box, though you'd find tastier fare in an average convenience store. There are three hour-long shows each night, in which the nubile staff take to the floor on giant robots, including a neon tank and enormous female 'borgs – complete with (literally) pneumatic busts.
The customers seemed a little too gob-smacked to know what to do at first, but by the end they were waving their glowsticks like hardened ParaPara dancers. Give it a chance, and you might find yourself doing the same thing too.
