This is the kind of thing I was hoping to see when I visited Japan five years ago. I was disappointed. But my dream is finally a reality: an all-robot restaurant has opened in Harbin, capital of Heilongjiang province in China.

The robots don’t just make the food – they also greet the guests. Each one cost $32,000 to make and can serve food for five hours before needing a recharge. Some of the robots cook, some wait tables by travelling around a track, and some sing to guests as they eat.

It’s a shame we’ve already booked our summer holiday: this is definitely on the travel bucket list.
