Robot Restaurant. More of a performance than an eatery, the show will assault your senses in a fun-filled hour of noise, light and kitsch.a robot, and various costumed attendants ready to smile for your camera--it is worth a look even if you don’t shell out for a ticket to go inside. The waiting area and passage down to the theater are littered with glittering mirrors, lights, colours and images--it was all I could do to keep from tripping as I tried to look at everything on the way downstairs. The show itself is a cavalcade of action and frenzy--with robot fights, dancing girls, machines and gadgets, music, special effects and an intermission break that gives the audience a chance to pose with the cast.There are normally 3 shows per night (most consistently Tuesdays through Saturdays) at 7, 8:30, and 10pm, There is a souvenir stand and concession bar for canned drinks and snacks, and vendors sell supplementary refreshments in the theater to keep your whistle wet before the show and during intermission. English info is abundant, though the MC spoke only Japanese when I was there.etc.
