Bangladesh's first-ever robot restaurant was launched in Dhaka on Wednesday.
The launching ceremony for Mexwel Robot Restaurant was arranged jointly by the restaurant authorities and China-based robot-manufacturing organisation HZX Electronic Technology Company.
The restaurant has installed two humanoid robots to serve food to customers.
Located in the Family World Convention Centre at 2/6 Asad Gate, Mirpur Road, near the Bangladesh prime minister’s official residence, people from all walks of life may go to the restaurant to experience their unique mechanised service.
Rahin Raiyan, director of the restaurant, said: “Robots will provide better service to customers than waiters. Besides, the service will be a source of amusement for people of all ages, especially children.
“We will keep the menu at a reasonable price and hope that people of all classes will be able to enjoy our service,” he added.
