First off, best service we had at any restaurant we visited in Austin! Service was helpful and friendly and answered all of our questions. The happy hour specials are awesome! We had a great variety and we are sushi snobs but we were really really happy with everything we tried! Our server's recommendations were delicious. Also- we loved the look... More

I cannot say enough about the quality of the food and service at Lucky Robot! There were so many unique items on the menu I couldn't resist ordering an appetizer, noodle bowl, and a piece of sushi. Both the spinach/tofu dumplings and brussels sprouts were flavorful ways to begin the meal. I love the Build Your Own Noodle bowl option... More

We ate here Friday night and then went back on Sunday because it was so good. The edaname was the best. They are pet friendly--they brought a dog bowl and pitcher of water for our pups. The atmosphere is nice outside. The inside is small and have actual swings for some of the seating. Worth a try!

My friend and I were hungry after watching the bats and decided to eat here after a local suggested it. We split the edamame, and both of us had the udon bowl. Walked out completely stuff and quite satisfied.

They have a Japanese anime theme and everything is named for a robot. It’s quite funny but it is serious sushi. Forget the décor, the food is fantastic. They have fish flown in daily from Tokyo’s Tsukiji Fish Market, it is the real deal. The fish is so fresh and they have a large selection. I just go for the... More

Despite a few technological changes (iPad ordering for awhile) the food has remained consistently tremendous. The calamari is crisp and be sure and order the Brussel sprouts for an appetizer! Extraordinarily fresh sushi and build your own bowls of cooked chicken, veggies or beef..choose your own sauce, additions and cooking style..for those that don't hanker for the raw. Their sushi...

I don't know if the decor of this place is authentically Japanese-weird or just weird, but either way, it's fun to see a mural of the Texas state capital engulfed in tentacles. It's a nice place to eat, either inside (it's reasonably quiet) or, on a nice evening, outside. The service is attentive, personable, and efficient. The menu is extensive,... More

Creative nigiri, nice drink menu. This is definitely a place to go for dinner with friends, the atmosphere is fun, the decor is very pop and colorful. Robot themes menu items are fun to read and eat;)

Are here while at SXSW and this is one of the best meals I've had while traveling for business. The restaurant staff were all incredibly helpful and friendly, especially upon hearing I was from out of town. Fellow patrons at the bar noted they go to Lucky Robot once a week as they love it so much. Just a really... More
