Images from China where a robot restaurant has sparked great public interest. Opened in June 2012, the restaurant has gained fame for using a total of 20 robots, which range in height from 1.3-1.6m, to cook meals and deliver dishes.

The robots can work continuously for five hours after a two-hour charge, and are able to display over 10 expressions on their faces and say basic welcoming sentences to customers, local media reported.
