This sushi restaurant in Ottawa has a robot cat server and it’s like eating with the Jetsons
You’ll feel like you’ve traveled to the future at this Ottawa sushi restaurant. Hover over Rosie the Robot, this cat-like waiter robot called Bella will have you dreaming about who you’re having dinner with The Jetsons.
Hockey Sushi is a restaurant in western Ottawa that serves a variety of rolls, Japanese dishes and Chinese dishes. You can order your meal via a tablet, and it will be brought to you by Bella, the adorable robot that you will see navigating between the tables.
The experience doesn’t feel impersonal as Bella will blink and smile at you, and she’ll even announce that your meal is ready as she creeps up to your table.
While the robot can carry tons of orders at once, you’ll know which order is yours because the tray will light up blue. Once you’ve grabbed your plates, Bella will know when to fly to the next table as soon as you click “finish” on the screen.
If you’re celebrating a birthday, the experience can become even more fun as Bella can serenade you with a classic “Happy Birthday” tune.
You can choose between an all-you-can-eat menu or pay-to-order, depending on what suits you best and your level of hunger. Be careful not to get in the way of Bella as she glides through the restaurant, as the robot moves on a set path based on the layout of the restaurant (and can’t actually see you in the typical sense).
