Here is a restaurant where meals are served by robot waiters. Chennai’s Porur has the first ‘Robot Restaurant’ where robots not only serve as waiters they also interact with customers in Tamil and English.
The restaurant, which is located in Chennai’s Mugilivakkam-Porur, has in all seven robots designed in blue and white exteriors. They welcome the customers and take orders for meals.
A woman robot at the reception responds to customers’ queries and guides the customers about their table numbers.
Moreover, the restaurant serves Indo-Asian cuisines and it has a theme of a Golf and Black.
Each robot in the eatery costs around Rs 5 lakh. The hotel staffs of the eatery have been well trained to operate the robots. The staff will stay in touch with the makers of the robots so that they can guide them in case of an emergency.
“We have three branches in India. The robots will interact with customers and guide them with the table numbers. As there was no Robot Restaurant in India before, we worked on it and got successful. The robots are yet to be named. We will ask the customers to suggest names. Later, we will conduct a name keeping ceremony. We have two types of robots, one for serving food and the other one to interact and guide the customers. The restaurant is also planning to expand our chain in Bengaluru,” said General Manager of the restaurant, Kailash.
“We have provided a tablet on every table which has the menu. Once the customers select their choice of dishes, the order is sent to the kitchen. From there, the order is collected by the robots and they are programmed in a way that they take the order to the right table,” he added.
