A new noodle restaurant in China has captured diners' attention by employing a noodle-making robot.

The restaurant in Jilin City, north-east China's Jilin Province, has attracted many locals to come and try noodles made by 'Ultraman'.

Restaurant owner Qian Hu bought the robot for 20,000 Yuan (2,000) and believes its efficiency is twice that of a human worker.

He explained: "More importantly I don't need to pay him, and for a consecutive work of 12 hours it only consumes 3 kWh of electricity. And the noodles it slices are even thinner than those of human workers."
