Japanese Robot Restaurant is Coming to Sydney

Featuring giant robots — battling.

You've heard the tales. Those mystical, weird-as-blazes stories of entire restaurants manned by robots in Japan, surrounded by glow sticks, frantic lasers, bejewelled dancers and robot battles. The rumours are straight-up true. But don't even think about breaking that piggy bank open for an airfare, the world-renowed Japanese Robot Restaurant from Shinjuku, Tokyo is coming to Sydney for two nights only. This is not a drill.

As part of the launch of Contiki’s new 'Japan Unrivalled' itinerary kicking off in March 2015, the travel-lovin' team are bringing one of Japan's major kitschy attractions to you — battling robots included. Set to pop up at 41 Oxford Street, Darlinghurst, the Japanese Robot Restaurant is the sum of your wildest, weirdest and wackiest Japanese-inspired dreams — big ol' J-pop beats, choreographed dancers, fluorescent fitout and tasty Japanese food and bevs — and LASERS. So very many lasers. The kicker? The pop-up will see giant futuristic robots doing battle while you nosh. That's right, bigass robots battling.

Just, just look at this:

Classic weird, wonderful Japan. This is going to be nuts.

Robots Unrivalled will perform February 23 and 24 at 41 Oxford St, Darlinghurst. Tickets are $40 +BF per person (max. two tickets per transaction) and your Bento box is included in the ticket price. There are three sessions: 5.30pm, 7.30pm and 9.30pm. Tickets go on sale at 9am on Wednesday, January 28.
