A great place in downtown Allentown- when the staff is asked to help make the lunch or dinner unique most will repsond. You pay for the experience/tastes, but the quality is rather consistent.The special items make the day great--and allow for discussion later during breaks. The atmosphere is fine--but needs a bit more quite music, and sharing with guests how to say things in Japanese.

Mr. Shindo and Mrs.Shindo operate a wonderful and authentic Japanese restaurant in Allentown. Dining there reminded me of the restaurants and sushi bars I enjoyed years ago in Hiroshima. The menu is somewhat confusing, but Mrs. Shindo took the time to explain it. They offer many types of sushi, sashimi and various other Asian specialties. The vegetables are so very fresh and tasty. The edamame was lightly salty warm and delicious. The miso soup was very good. The sashimi was fresh and well prepared. The sushi was flavorful and nicely rolled and cut. I would definitely recommend Robata's. It is a pleasant surprise in the Lehigh Valley

The only aspect better than the food is the personalized service you receive from the host / owner. You feel as though you are a guest in her home. And she makes a grand Big Bad Voodoo Daddy cocktail !!
