About Us



Chef and owner Thom Chantharasy has created a menu of izakaya-style small plates, ramen and sushi.


St. Louis is in the midst of a ramen storm, a tsunami of broth and raining noodles where Thom is in the forefront. Robata is as if all the energy of Tokyo was captured under this one modest roof.


Both Han Lao and Robata continue to enjoy critical acclaim and have been mentioned in countless magazines, websites, blogs, and much more.
