Robots of all shapes and sizes were dotted around the restaurant, while four talking robots delivered food to customers sat at tables.

When I was sat at a table, Sparky the robot rolled over to say hello. Swannell said he made Sparky from scraps of metal and plastic.

Optimus Prime, who was made out of salvaged car and motorbike parts, used to stand outside a store in London before the restaurant adopted it, Swannell said.

Near the door stood Iron Man. Swannell said that the restaurant was selling the huge recycled replica for around R84,000.

Co-owner Joy Gittens told Insider how she collected around 800 Yves Saint Lauren makeup boxes for Swannell to make "Yslabelle."

Meet "Mike Dyson," who was made entirely out of recycled Dyson vacuum cleaners. At three metres tall, it's the biggest robot in the restaurant.

Adam 1971, made out of recycled waste, had a Star Wars aura. It was one of the smaller robots, standing at 147 centimetres high and weighing 15 kilograms

Not far away from Adam was A55A51N. This robot was made from a recycled mannequin and other spare metal parts.

Tagan was one of the bigger robots in the restaurant. It was made from assorted recycled materials, including vacuum cleaners, and car parts.

This Transformer-like robot, called "Audibot", was mainly made from a children's toy electric car. It also has parts from a pressure washer, a bike and an engine.

Gittens and Swannell found Tronik stored away at an industrial unit. The robot has the ability to turn its head and body, and its eyes light up blue when it's switched on.

The restaurant would have also pleased "Doctor Who" fans with its model of the Dalek.

There was even a robot in charge of hand sanitiser — this one was also made from scrap metal pieces and springs.
