A robot themed restaurant is proving a success after opening in downtown Harbin, northeast China's Heilongjiang Province.

The restaurant has 18 types of robots, including dumpling robot, noodle robot, cooking robot, waitress robot, usher robot and so on.

When a diner walks in the usher robot extends their arm to the inside, while saying "Earth Person, Hello, Welcome to the Robot Restaurant!" Then after diners have ordered the robots in the kitchen set to work cooking.

After a dish is prepared, a robot waiter, which runs along tracks on the floor, carries it from kitchen to table. Besides the robots on the ground, there are also two robots working in the air. Prepared dishes are placed on a suspended conveyor belt and when the plate reaches the right table the mechanical arms lift it off and set it down. As they eat, a singing robot entertains diners.
