We had a great night here mainly thanks to very attentive and friendly service. The food was OK but not as exciting and flavourful as Japanese food can be when very good.

We tried this place today for the first time after living down the street from it for years. It seems I was avoiding it for a reason and didn't know it. The food here was no better than what you get at Kona Grill. At least with Kona, you can go during one of their many happy hours and not... More

I loved this place for its quirky charm, fantastic service, and outstanding food. They specialize in a great variety of Japanese cuisine, such as sushi, noodle bowls, and small plates. Dishes come out as they are ready so it's a great place to share. We ordered the Brussels sprouts appetizer: rich and flavorful with sweet soy, I got sushi which... More

Was there with kids. They enjoyed the food and enjoyed eating it while seating on a swing at the table! Waiters were nice. Good service. Were happy to customize dishes for my kids.

We love the fun atmosphere on Congress Ave and it's nice to people watch. Lucky Robot is rarely crowded, but the food is always stellar. Our kids eat simple: edamame, miso, and California rolls, and my husband and I like to try different things every time we go. Always a must are the fried Brussels sprouts. The sushi rolls are...

I love this place! We eat here every time we visit Austin which is more often now that my son is at UT. This is our favorite restaurant. I love the fried Brussels sprouts and can eat a whole bowl myself. I usually go for the rice bowls instead of the sushi but you can't go wrong with anything on... More

The sushi was top notch and very reasonably priced. First time to try sake and it was good. Our waiter knew what he was doing and could offer knowledgeable advice about the dishes we were unfamiliar with. The decor was very interesting . A small place but was busy. Not a long wait for food. Very enjoyable experience.

I love this place. They have sushi, Asian stir-fry and one of the best brussel sprouts appetizer in the city.

Loved this lunch experience! The brussel sprouts flash fried with lemon grass soy was wonderfully yummy. Nice selection of dumplings and bowls you can create. Future trips I will try to eat here. Simply delightful.
