A restaurant in Kent is serving its customers by computer instead of waiters as a way to beat the queues.
Customers can even message people seated at other tables
Bytes Cafe Bar in St Peter's Street, Canterbury, is offering customers a full menu at the touch of a button while remaining at their table.
The order is then printed out in the kitchen ready for the chefs to prepare.
Owner Heath Clay said he came up with the concept because of his own experiences eating out and struggling to attract the attention of staff.
"I just thought let's come up with a system that will simplify that and put it in the customers' control rather than the waiting staff," he said.
The computer also caters for children, who can play games on it and draw while waiting for their food.
And customers can even message other tables if they feel the urge to get to know someone else seated in the restaurant.
