Robots have already taken over the kitchens and the dining halls of many popular restaurants around the world, cooking and serving delicious food. If you too are curious to enjoy such 'robot' experience, head straight to the brand new 'Be @ Kiwizo' restaurant at Kannur opened by actor Maniyanpilla Raju and his friends.
The diners are welcomed into the restaurant by three robots named Aleena, Helen and Jane. These robots, which have a height of five feet, would be serving dishes at the tables as well. They are operated by sensors that have been programmed earlier. If they encounter any barriers on the way to a table, they would give instructions to clear their path. Besides, three other smaller robots, which are just four feet, too are arranged at various spots in the restaurant to play with the kids. These robots were brought to Kerala from China.
Maniyanpilla Raju revealed he had decided to open his restaurant in Kannur as he is familiar with the incredible love that the people of Kannur have for delicious food. He expressed joy for his hotel being the first eatery to introduce robot servers in Kerala. The actor said he would consider expanding the enterprise if the robot experiment proves to be successful.
The Kiwizo management envisages imparting expert training for homemakers in cooking unique local dishes to promote a culture of homely food. They also aim to supply homely food, in the Kannur town, by managing the orders through mobile application. A bakery named Baking Mummy where women supply homemade bakery items and goodies too was opened. Maniyanpilla Raju and his partners CV Nisamudin Najma Nisam and MK Vineeth, in a presser, said that a restaurant where robots serve food would be opened in Doha as well, to lure foodies and tourists who throng the city to watch the FIFA World Cup.
