Robot Restaurant in Tokyo, Japan
Starting off with something bright and flashy, Robot Restaurant in Tokyo seems like a futuristic reality that you are fully immersed into once you enter. Special effects, lasers, robots, and robot-like performers all contribute to the vibrant and electrified atmosphere. On the other hand, there’s not much food to choose from, but that is fully justified by the spectacular shows.
It has already been proven that robots will change everything, including the catering sphere. Henry Hu, the CEO at Café X, a company that builds robotic cafes, totally agreed with this in a Q & A session that first appeared on Quora and was then covered by Forbes.

SnowCastle Restaurant in Kemi, Finland
Are you looking for something magical? Well, then this is the closest you can possibly get to a fairytale. SnowCastle is said to be the biggest snow fort in the world, annually rebuilt for the sake of safety. Yes, even such masterpieces can melt.
It opens every January and closes in mid-April, every time serving some of the best food, both for vegetarians and not, you can find. The entire thing is made of snow, while the ice elements are made from seawater. It’s a great place to go if you want to visit Finland for skiing and visit something special there too.

Dans le Noir in London, UK
This restaurant provides some of the most unusual experiences you will ever get in your life: eating with your eyes closed, or rather, in full darkness. One of the aims of this place is to show you how it feels to not be able to see – the hosts and waiters here are visually impaired.
You will be asked to choose one of the four surprise menus: White, Red, Blue, and Green. And then, while you are eating, the bartender will make you a surprise drink to match your meal. Who knows, maybe you’ll get a glass of Dalmore !

Pollsmoor Maximum Security Prison Restaurant in Cape Town, South Africa
If the fear of darkness is not such a widespread thing, then everyone probably has some stereotypical prejudice about prisons. But not to worry, this place is completely safe.
You might be wondering why it feels like you’ve heard the name. The reason is that Nelson Mandela spent his last days here. His prison cell even serves as a kind of a museum now.
On another note, the restaurant’s name is Idlanathi, which literally translates to ‘eat with us’. And that’s what you’ll be doing! The inmates are quite friendly while cooking and serving meals.
If you still feel like you are in danger, the Tesco chocolate biscuits can calm your nerves, so don’t forget to bring them along.

Dinner in the Sky in Dubai, UAE
Wow, this one is for true extreme lovers. The Dinner in the Sky restaurant actually functions in forty countries, so don’t worry about going exactly to Dubai for it.
The table, diners, and staff are hoisted on a crane onto a height of up to 150 feet in the air. Only then can you start enjoying your food, which is quite a challenge when there’s nothing under you. There can be up to twenty-two people taken into the sky at a time, and the experience can last of up to eight hours!

Ithaa Undersea Restaurant in Conrad Rangali Island, Maldives
Ever wanted to feel like Aquaman? Or maybe like the Little Mermaid? Or you are just a big fan of fish? Then this restaurant is just for you. Located at the Conrad resort on the Maldives, this food place is over 16 feet under water. To tell you the truth, this kind of place could be not expensive, but it’s still totally worth it. You can be drinking a glass of Eagle Rare while talking to fish about the meaning of life.
As you can see, there are so many exciting places you can visit to have the time of your life!
