World’s Strangest Restaurant #6: Hajime Robot Restaurant, Bangkok, Thailand

This place has been written about many, many times because the waiters are animated inanimate objects made of metal and wires. In short ─ they’re robots. They wear funny hats, have industrial pincers for arms and they dance too. Yes, they are the dancing robot waiters of Thailand. In between grinding and bumping to K-pop top hits, they serve you your dinner. What more can you ask? However, if you’re the conversational type, you might be disappointed because the robots don’t speak much. That means you can’t, you know, establish rapport or ask them to recommend the special-of-the-day. Then again, the special-of-the-day shouldn’t be too hard to figure out since it’s a Japanese restaurant. The fare is Shabu-Shabu, Yakiniku and Sukiyaki on top of all kinds of Japanese cuisine. According to reviews, the food is fresh and always excellent. Hajime Robot has become so popular, they’ve opened many branches. Here’s their addresses, if you can read Thai. (If you can’t, you can always call them).

The robots are quite deft in handling multiple tiers of food as you can see. They are probably a good idea for the owner since they won’t expect wages or complain about long working hours. Pic from Hajime Robot Japanese Restaurant
