London: A new restaurant has opened in Shandong province of China, and has robots as waitresses.
The Dalu Rebot Restaurant, in Jinan, has six robot waitresses and can cater for up to 100 diners.
The website Orange reported that the 21 tables in the restaurant are set in circles and the robots follow a fixed route to serve diners in rotation.
After serving, the robots return to the kitchen to refill their cart for the next round. Restaurant spokeswoman Wang Xianwei said that all of the waiting on tables was done by robots.
However, humans in the kitchen prepare the food, mainly the Chinese version of fondue and people are also employed to welcome customers and explain to them how the restaurant worked.
The Shandong Dalu Science and Technology Company developed the restaurant, which plans to further develop the concept.
