Friendly and attentive waiters are a key ingredient in the running of a successful restaurant.

And now more and more robots are replacing humans by providing a reliable waitressing service in Chinese restaurants and hotels.

One such new restaurant in Jiangsu Province, China, is staffed by 15 droids that not only carry food to a diner’s table, but help cook it too.

HOW USEFUL ARE THE ROBOTS?

They can carry trays of food steadily to diners.

The droids can also perform repetitive arm motions to "cook".

Some of them can talk to restaurant goers using 40 different phrases.

Other restaurants and hotels have singing robots and receptionists.

While they cost around 50,000 Yuan ($8,100 or £4,843) they do not need to be paid a salary, and they can work for up to eight years.

The futuristic employees greet customers, deliver food and help with cooking in the kitchen, according to local media - and if they encounter a rude customer, there is no chance of them spitting in the food.

Some of the robots can manage polite conversation, as well as greeting customers with 40 different phrases.

Just like with humans, the energy-intensive job takes its toll on the robots, which are expected to offer between five and eight years’ service. 

Each one costs around 50,000 Yuan ($8,100 or £4,843) each.
