    Very neat idea! Very efficient....

    Now take this onto a bar setting, or even just busy family friendly restaurant. How do you order drinks? How detailed is the customizable option for picky eaters with allergies? Who do you deal with for complaints? What about the extra sushi that isn`t being selected? Is there a security feature in place that somebody can`t snag my special order before I do? And finally, what`s to stop me from tucking those little plates in my huge, over sized purse? B]

    It is pretty cool, seems to go well with a sushi restaurant where the majority of items are served cold. I just don`t think my sissy should start looking for new work just yet :D

    As a kid, automats were heaving their last gasps.
    This is a new take on that type of establishment, with the usual Japanese flair. Well done.

    tipping isn`t an issue in Japan.. its VERY insulting and taboo to tip because you`re telling your server "you suck at your job, here is some money to get more training"

    A nice high-tech idea on an old gimmick. Besides automats, there used to be places back in the 50`s/60`s where toy trains would bring the food out.

    no worries about dealing with crap employees/customers.

    no worries about said employee spitting in your food or you spitting in your customers.

    avoid the conflict before it starts :D

    Wonder if it`s open 24 hours. I`d love to go there at midnight with the rest of the night owls.

    Good way to eliminate minimum wage jobs. If we eliminate all minimum wage jobs, we will have no more poor people.*
