A Chinese restaurant named as MOMO in Chennai’s Old Mahabalipuram Road (OMR) has employed robots as ‘waiters’ to serve food to their guests at the table. One of its kind in the country, the restaurant is based on robot theme and has four robots serving various types of dishes to the guests. It has been founded by Venkatesh Rajendran and Karthik Kannan.
Here customers can order Thai and Chinese, by using the phone tabs placed on every table. Once the food is ready, the robots fetch food from the kitchen and serve it the customer. Robots serving food in restaurants is an idea that has been executed in several parts of the world. There are various Chinese restaurants which started using robots as early as 2006.
