A new restaurant in Dubai, Drink and Spice Magics, has an interesting addition to its front of house staff – a robot.
As revealed in a video on its YouTube channel, Ruby the robotic waitress has taken up work at the Bur Dubai concept, serving customers their curries and even telling customers to ‘enjoy your meal’.
According to The National, Ruby even sings customers happy birthday and is kitted out in an authentic Indian sari.
4am Group, who opened Drink and Spice Magics, managing director Arif Mohammed told The National he got the idea when he visited a restaurant in India that had a robot working in the kitchen.
He said: “Robots will be part of the future and it won’t be long before we all have regular interaction with them in some form.”
You can find the eatery at Al Abbas Building, Near Burjaman Mall, Mankhool.
