Lucky Robot is the 1st sushi restaurant in Texas to partner with the James Beard Foundation and Monterrey Bay Aquarium sustainability programs. We are committed to healthy oceans.

Our kitchen is lead by 2 time Ora King Finalist Jay Huang. Our food is Modern Nikkei cuisine. Chef Jay’s dishes have the elegance and balance of Japanese cuisine accentuated with the fragrant chilies and aromatic spices of Latin America.

Prime dry-aged fish is here. A tradition started over 200 years ago in Tokyo and now the 1st in Texas.

Prime Dry Aged Fish will allow you to taste the fish in its purest form. Breaking down tissues and sugars allows new flavors and textures that bring the fish to its cleanest, most tender form. Age = Flavour.

Waitress didn’t know anything about the drink list or food and I am the type of person to try things that the staff recommends. Disappointing and not worth $200 in my opinion.

The food was fantastic — highly recommend the dumplings and lomo. I’m not a big sushi person but the roll my boyfriend got was delicious as well. Our server, Grace, was so personable and tied together the experience. Will add this place to our regular rotation.

Everything was great! The waitress we had was so sweet & knowledgeable. But at the end they wanted us to leave we still had drinks and they sent over a male waiter to ask us to leave and he was so rude about it. Other than that great experience

We sat outside in frigid weather. It wasn’t windy so the new overhead heaters were perfect. I should have brought a lap blanket & my legs would have been warm too.

The service was excellent. Great food suggestions from the server.

Food was tasty.

Note to self- it’s hard to keep food even slightly warm in that kind of cold. I need to order accordingly.

We enjoy Lucky Robot for good patio seating and a view of the Soco crowd strolling by. As Vegans, my husband and I love the veggiepilar "sushi-less" roll. The spicy edamame and Brussels sprouts are must appetizers to order. The service is superb. The outdoor music tends to be a bit loud, but we were able to hear ourselves talk.

Their seasonal options, and the value and price of their happy hour menu is truly phenomenal, like their 3 dollar pork belly nigiri. The ambiance of the cherry blossoms and paper cranes are phenomenal.

I love coming to Lucky Robot! They have a lot of menu options ranging in price and I’ve never been disappointed. Their seating is pretty limited so it is better to reserve in advance.

Lots of vegan options. Had to send back one dish - which was the rice dish in the hot main entrees. But other than that one - the rest of the food was great! Service was great too.

We came during happy hour and we’re seated quickly. Server Blake and rest of Staff were very friendly. Blake was so knowledgeable about the menu and he helped us out all throughout our great dining experience. He anticipated all our needs and was very attentive. All his suggested dish were delicious most especially the Wagyu Beef on a hot rock, Pork Belly, and both suggested desserts were great. We enjoyed it very much that we went back next day and ordered some to go. They treat you like a family and such good atmosphere makes us feel like coming back again and again. Thank you Stephanie, Anastacio and rest of employees. We will see y’all soon.

Good food but an awkward quiet ambiance (no music on outside). Told the server a couple times but she didn’t fix it. Finally made a comment to another server and the speaker situation was resolved briefly but the sound went back down low shortly thereafter. When eating outside, it’s be great to enjoy music vs. sounds from the streets.
