Bangkok’s Hajime Robot Restaurant



Melissa Richter for "Where in Dining"
May 17, 2011

It’s campy…..it’s silly…. and it loads of fun at the Hajime Robot Restaurant.  This spot may be a bit off the beaten track, but it is the only place in Bangkok where you can be served and entertained by giant bug eyed robots dressed up like Japanese samurai.  With automated touch screen menus located tableside, you can order a la carte or buffet style, with Shabu Shabu for THB 499++ per person or Grilled BBQ for THB 599++ per person (lunch or dinner). The robot (actual imported Japanese bots, not puppets) brings food from the kitchen to your table and does a funky little tableside dance.


The food is pretty good, although it is nothing spectacular and is on par with what you find at other Bangkok BBQ restaurants. The grilled BBQ buffet consists of a large variety of meats, seafood, vegetables, sushi, tempura, and a few limited desserts. The quality of the beef is exceptionally flavorful and you will find favorites such as Harami Beef Sirloin Tip, Chuck Roll Beef, Smoked Bacon, Lamb Chop and the Kurubuta Pork which is seasoned with a Korean BBQ Sauce.  

Hajime Robot Restaurant is definitely made for family fun and group dining so you'll want bring your camera and take photos of the robots while there.  Unfortunately the 'production line' theme also extends to customers—there is a 1 hour and 45 minute time limit for dining, so it's really the kind of place where you get in, fill up, and leave.
