Guangzhou City, Guangdong Province, China -- A restaurant in Southern China is attracting customers with a novelty straight out "the Jetsons"... a robot waiter.

It definitely makes the meal unique.

However, the robot has some limitations: it moves slowly and is only able to carry about a pound. On the other hand, a steaming hot dish doesn't bother it and it won't look at you funny if you don't tip.

The Restaurant's owner says he's been intrigued by robots since he was a kid.
