Food & Drink

A samurai robot is your waiter at this Bangkok restaurant

Finally got over that weird time you were served by identical twins? Don't get comfortable, because Thailand's got something even stranger in store. At the Bangkok restaurant Hajime, customers receive their food from an android that also happens to be an ancient Japanese warrior.

The booths in Hajime all feature touchscreen displays, where you can select your food and then gleefully punch the "place order to robot" button. Once the stuff is up, one of two robo-samurais glides behind the glass separating the dining room from the kitchen and drops your meal tableside before retreating to stave off the wave of rebel busboys at hand. Welcome your new sushi overlords by seeing them in action below.
