Tokyo's insane robot breastaurant — simply called Robot Restaurant — is bringing its special brand of sensory overload to Sydney, Australia. According to CNET, the themed-restaurant is setting up a two-day pop-up down under. The Japanese restaurant has a cult following and even made an appearance on Anthony Bourdain's CNN show Parts Unknown. CNET writes that the Robot Restaurant "subverts the traditional dinner-and-show format, giving guests a chance to enjoy a meal and a drink while watching possibly the most hyperactive pastiche of Japanese pop culture in living memory."

"...enjoy a meal and a drink while watching possibly the most hyperactive pastiche of Japanese pop culture in living memory."

There aren't a lot of details available about the pop-up, but hopefully it will bring its signature technicolor circus of ninja pandas, dancing dinosaur robots, lasers, pole dancers, women dressed as rave bunnies, glitter-clad everything, lasers, and glow sticks to the Sydney masses. The pop-up will take place February 23 and 24 and it's probably best to purchase tickets as soon as possible. You don't want to miss the chance to eat a bento box while watching Transformer-style robots battling each other in a pseudo-boxing ring after all. Check out a video of the restaurant below:
