Tables too close together.Staff were not particularly helpful. Food poor quality, not all ready prepared food was very warm. Signage to the different areas not great. Not a lot of choice in the different cuisines. Reluctant to... More

My third recent visit, this time with the family. Six of us( 4 Adults and 14 & 10 year olds) thoroughly enjoyed a variety of courses mostly choosing different main meals and desserts. We were seated in one of the fuselage sections which was really good despite having to get up frequently to let each other out, but it did... More

Been here multiple times. This time went with colleagues from Singapore. They were very impressed with the choices, and the fun with the staff. Friendly and efficient as always.

Do not... I repeat! be attracted to the pretty lights and decor from the outside of this awful hell hole of a place they call restaurant where you go in and actually eat this rubbish. First time going here with my boyfriend on a trip to wonderful city of notthingham, and after reviews from other friends it was a decent... More

I have been twice this month and have planned to take four other people all on separate days for lunch here. I am really impressed for so many positive reasons. I have read a few of the less favourable reviews and all I can say is that everyone is different and some people can be too awkward to relax and... More

When we first got there staff ignored us and we was left hanging around, this was our first visit so we was unsure what to do. We booked prior to our visit, we ended up on two circular tables pushed together making it very hard to talk to each other despite there where plenty of row tables available. The coke... More

I wrote a review saying how bad my first experience was at this restaurant and vowed never to go back. After being promised by the manager that much had changed I decided to return and discovered he was right! Food was a lot tastier and fresh and the singer who performed created a nice atmosphere. The whole evening was a... More

I'll be honest, I'm not a fan of buffets usually for a few reasons and I wasn't keen on visiting here naturally. I've been to a differnt Red Hot Buffet before and it didn't blow me away either, it was decent-ish but not the best place I've been to. As soon as I entered, I was already impressed with the... More

As far a buffet style restaurants are concerned this is top notch. The venue is impressive and you get into the vibe of word buffet at first entry. The menu is self explanatory. You can walk around all the food tables and quite easily decide what you want to eat and try. You get about 6 different kitchens including Italian,... More
