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.

We hold back a number of tables each evening for walk-ins if there are none available online.

For parties larger than 5 or special events please call Lucky Robot at 512-444-8081

Wayyyyyy overpriced. Cute atmosphere, friendly service. Very little food for the price. Skip the hype and go to some place that you can get full for less than $175.

Out of this world! This is our 3rd visit & each one is better than the last. Joshua was a fantastic server & made our dining experience first rate. We loved the dry aged sashimi - super delish & one of a kind. We were lucky enough to be there on a blue fin (otoro) week. Don’t skip the yuzu dessert.
I am allergic to shellfish & they could accommodate my allergy with every dish except for 1 - phenomenal! This is a can’t miss on every trip to Austin!

My only complaint, they opened at 4:30 on this day. My reservation was at 4:45. We got there a little early and walked in at 4:27. There was a woman at the host station. She said I’m sorry but we don’t open for 3 more minutes, can you step back outside for 3 minutes? We said Ok and stepped back out all while wondering why they couldn’t just seat us. While standing out on the side walk for the next 3 minutes, 2 other parties walked in and didn’t come back out. When the 3 minutes were up, we walked back in and those other parties were seated. Weird. But ok.

Great staff and nice to sit outside but overall the food lacked flavor. Everything was very bland, looked very pretty but had no flavor. Glad it was HH and we didn’t pay full price for everything.

Absolutely outstanding experience!
My oldest child and I went out for some late night sushi. We arrived 15 min before our reservation and were sat promptly. The server was friendly. We ordered 3 rolls to start and enjoyed all of them. We asked for another of the spicy salmon roll. It was right before closing and it ended up taking a little longer. They gave us a hot rock app for free to make up for the wait!
I really loved the experience. We sat outside and the weather was perfect. The ambiance was just great and everyone we encountered that day was top notch.

What a treat to close the weekend with a dinner at Lucky robot!

Highly recommend sharing all plates and asking the staff for their recommendations. Highly recommend: Beef hot rock, toro + fig, chicken karaage, wagyu yaki nashi, hiramasa serrano and the dessert yuzu cheesecake. All mouthwateringly delicious, fresh and great for sharing.

If you get a cocktail, you’ll find it both - delicious and gorgeous. Recommend the southern sakura

I love Lucky Robot!
Even thought it was noisy bc of the traffic outside(not lucky robots problem), I once again had an amazing experience and the rest of my party enjoyed all the food and drinks we consumed.

Keep up the good work!

We've definitely had much better experiences at Lucky Robot, a place I usually recommend to others.
Miso soup for $5 was quite bland and forgettable. Electric Eel roll did not feature any distinct flavors and while not bad, it wasn't anything special.
I would not order it again.
We had both Chirashi bowls on the menu; while the sashimi was fresh, the pieces are basically half the size you'd normally receive and seemed to be served at room temperature rather than cold.
Overall, an underwhelming meal from a place we really enjoy...

So we had mixed reviews...I loved the pork and shrimp dumplings and the tempura shrimp roll with market fish. Kinda staples for me and there were great. The lady did not care for the dry aged fish....I thought it was cool...she was not feeling it and she is not a picky eater. It was all just meh and overpriced in her eyes. I would recommend the happy hour

The food was great. Spicy edamame and the swordfish belly were stand outs. For the price and style of food I would expect and desire more knowledgeable, subtle service and a less rushed experience. Sake cocktails were also very good and worth checking out.

With a variety of options, you can decide to have sushi, change your mind and still have a wonderful and delicious meal! We love the sushi and maki rolls. There is nuance and levels that keep these rolls from boring. We’ll s been before and will go again.
