I get the use of robots for some aspects like order placements or even for drive-thrus but I didn't know that there are already restaurants that use robots not just for serving meals but also for cooking complex meals.

It's nice to see robots are doing a good job, but I think this is the point:

 "Technology is available to automatically pull espresso shots and make cappuccinos. But the number of coffee shops employing baristas appears to have grown."

So yes, robots might be great at their jobs and cost-effective, but I don't see customers will change their need of human interaction any time soon.

In some aspects, I actually prefer dealing with robots/computers over people. If I can order food something using an app or a website, I do that first instead of trying to talk to someone over the phone. I feel like it's faster and also more accurate since I can see my orders listed before I submit. When it comes to food preparation though, I can't see myself choosing a robot over a human.

At the Korean restaurant, which is fairly small, there are generally two human servers working, and one robot. One person stands at the kitchen window, loading food onto the robot and prepping side dishes. The other person greets customers, waits on tables, and handles the cash register. The robot goes back and forth, delivering plates and bills. But it seems dramatic to have a Robot chef !
