Junkichi Robata Izakaya is a brand-new contemporary restaurant that serves modern robatayaki food. It is explained to be a place where fresh meat, vegetables and fish meet a charcoal grill right in front of customers and are served piping hot, imitating a kind of cuisine that has been popular in Japan for centuries. The upscale location is dedicated towards delivering authentic style of Japanese eats that uses the same charcoal-grilled cooking process Northern Japanese fisherman would perform.

Junkichi Robata offers service from 'Sota,' a small AI robot that sits on top of tables to assist customers and servers with communication. The menu sees mouth-watering amberjack carpaccio with micro green touches, yuzu pepper, edible flowers, grilled sashimi-grade scallops wrapped with aged prosciutto and premium wagyu beef rib-eye.
