This place seems far-fetched. I’m still not sure if I believe it exists. Then again there’s a video below, and they have a Facebook page too. Located in the Kabukicho district in Tokyo, the restaurant whose tagline is “Welcome to Japan! Let’s go RobotSHOW!” combines animatronic puppets, cosplay- and costume-enhanced theatrics, Blue Man Group-esque drummers, dancers & performers covered in wearable electronics, and numerous floats, vehicles & contraptions into a compressed space that mimics medieval ‘dinner & tournament’ restaurant experiences. The entire facility is entirely covered in electronics and bedazzling ornamentation – here are just a few screenshots from the video at the end:

One thing is for certain: they stepped up the game compared to 1980s California disco-blasting waiter-bots. Watch:
