An excerpt from South China Morning Post:
"As you enter the venue, an automated cold room kept at 0 to 4 degrees Celsius is on view, where queues of robotic arms prepare and deliver raw meat and fresh vegetables according to the orders placed by patrons through an iPad at each table.
No humans are involved in the food preparation and food past its use-by date is tracked and disposed of automatically. Large displays show a live-stream of the kitchen premises, a measure to maintain customer confidence [...].
The robot-run kitchen was a project between Haidilao and Japanese electronics giant Panasonic, according to Haidilao chief information officer Shao Zhidong, who accompanied the Post team on a tour of the kitchen. We saw how the soup base, originally packaged separately and mixed in the pot by humans, is now prepared by robots who can cater to individual tastes and specific requirements with machine-like precision, each and every time. Your favourite soup base recipe and special combination of spices, various oil and key ingredients are automatically documented and uploaded into the cloud."
