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.

The customer service was poor. My partner and my drinks remained un-refilled, and the quality of the food was good albeit flavor combinations poor. I left unsastifed and will not visit again. One of the worst reviews I've ever left for a restaurant.

Loved all the plant-based options! Next time I'm going to ask if the rolls can be made with brown rice, so they're a little healthier. Happy hour has awesome food and drink deals. I was with 2 other people and we tried almost every vegan option and had a bottle of very yummy Taisetsu Garden of the Devine sake served cold, all for approximately $135 (tax, tip, everything). It's difficult to choose my favorite food options, but I think the Veggiepillar roll, Brussels sprouts, fuyu crudo, spinach & tofu dumplings, and the hi fi mycology mushroom nigiri stand out the most. The platings are beautiful, and the servers & staff are kind. Lucky Robot treated our table to a delicious Texas Tokyo banana dessert! 10 out of 10 for this gem of a restaurant! Take a stroll before or after your meal to soak up some of the lovely SoCo vibes.

Great food, great service, great practices in place to keep us safe. The music was too loud this time for us to enjoy a conversation. We could barely hear our waiter due to the music and the muffling of masks. Other than that everything was great and we will definitely be back. Lucky Robot never disappoints.

Best sushi place ever!! They have so many fun vegan options so I felt very included since I also got fun looking rolls like my nonvegan friends. Normally when I go out the veggie rolls are pretty boring but at Lucky Robot they were colorful, unique and yummy!!

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.

This was a great spot for sushi! We had a party of 5 and were seated inside (but the outside was still great for dinner as they had plenty of heaters)
The ambience and decor is stunning and very Instagramable!
Proper safety measures and protocols were in place (all employees wearing 2+ masks/shields and gloves etc and ample hand sanitizers all over. There were also 6 ft distance maintained between seated parties)

We ordered a few rolls and liked them so much that we decided to double up on them. We ordered:
Sea 3 p o
Hira hira
Robo tuna
Voltron

We also ordered hi fi mycology mushroom which was reminiscent of spam musubi (but a yummy bite of mushroom instead of the spam and lemon zest)

Our waitress Dani was so helpful and informative. She kept our drinks topped off and checked in often and made excellent recommendations

We will definitely be back!

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.
