Robotic food delivery in Anjappar South Indian Restaurant

Anjappar Indian restaurant in Cumming  may be the first in the area to employ the BellaBot, a robotic cart with a digital cartoon cat face that rolls food from the kitchen to the customers’ tables. 

The menu is different than what a typical south Indian restaurant would offer. The ambience is cozy. The casual eatery has gained some non-human assistance in the form of BellaBot, which has four trays for carrying food (no arms) and has a precise positioning and navigation system for moving around the dining room.

Made by Pudu Robotics and announced in January 2020, BellaBot has a cheerful personality and says “thank you” when bringing the food. A human server or customer must lift the food from BellaBot’s trays. The robot doesn’t accept tips, but will respond positively to pats on the head.
