The Kayabukiya Tavern is not an ordinary traditional Japanese restaurant, it has something quite unique. Once you walk into the restaurant you will be assured that the place not only has humans but also animals. The human waiters in the hotel in Utsunomiya in Tochigi are replaced by Macaque monkeys. And if you are wondering how monkeys can do the job with such precision you must watch the video below.

A Japanese restaurant has changed the face of customer service by employing two monkeys to help with the table service.
The monkeys are actually better waiters than some really bad human ones,’ customer Takayoshi Soeno said.
A video filmed earlier in the summer at the Kayabuki bar in Utsunomiya shows the monkey, a 17-year-old macaque named Fuku-chan, fetching beverages and napkins for customers.
Kaoru Otsuka said his first pet monkey, Yacchan, was given to him by an acquaintance several years ago. He said he brought Yacchan into work with him and he realized the primate had untapped potential one day when he handed Yacchan a napkin and he carried it out to some customers.

Otsuka said Fuku-chan started emulating Yacchan at a young age and he soon had two monkey waiters.
The bar owner now has several baby monkeys that pose for photos with guests, but aren't yet trained in the fine art of serving.
