Now, you can have adorable, tiny robots bring you your spicy salmon rolls
In recent years, Toronto has had sushi you can order on iPads and sushi delivered on a conveyor belt. But until now, our restaurant scene has been sorely lacking in one thing: tiny, adorable robots bringing us our spicy tempura rolls.
Here to change all that is Robo Sushi, a new spot at 865 York Mills (at Don Mills) that serves both AYCE and a la carte sushi and dim sum. You’ll be escorted to your table by a smiley Butlertron make your order via iPad and a second team of robots outfitted with trays will bring you your meal. Once you pat them on the head, they’ll roll back to their post. (I know. I KNOW.)
For that kind of entertainment value, the prices don’t seem to be all that badly inflated: weekday AYCE prices are $19.99 for lunch and $29.99 for dinner, while weekend lunches are $20.99 and dinner is $33.99.
No word on whether the food lives up to the novelty factor — but early online reviews have been a little bit mixed. (Just like my feelings about that lifelike robot lady in the video beow. Hello, uncanny valley.)
