The Resident Evil themed restaurant boasts a Resident Evil menu, scantily dressed S.T.A.R.S. waitresses, and zombie fighting weapons along the wall.

Robot Restaurant (Tokyo, Japan)

This is not your ordinary robot experience… but then again, what is? At Robot Restaurant, you can experience “fembots” dancing and performing through neon lights while you enjoy a bite to eat.

In Japan, a maid café is a subcategory of cosplay restaurants where waitresses dress in maid costumes and act as servants. Playing on this idea, New York brings you an anime-themed café that serves green tea sweets, rice balls, and beef bowls.
