They weren't born to serve you but they were definitely built to do just that, and where else if not in China.
 
Located in Jinan, China's Shandong Province, the Dalu Robot Restaurant opened on the 5th of December and can cater to about 100 customers, featuring two robot receptionists and a “staff” of six robot-waitresses. Two of them serve drinks, two serve small tables and another two tend to the big one. It seems that more “hiring” well be made in the near future as owners expect the restaurant will become quite a hit.
 
As all the waiting is done by robots, the tables were set in a circular pattern so that the robots can follow an exact route. Not all the work in the restaurant is done by them though, there are also people working there, especially in the kitchen, but some were also hired to welcome customers into the restaurant.
 
The concept belongs to The Shandong Dalu Science and Technology Company, who isn't planning to stop here, as they want to further develop this idea and ultimately have a staff of 40 robots. Seems logical enough, considering that business really took off when the people heard about these unusual waiters.
