In a ‘world of escapism’ guests can start their journey in a restaurant inspired by international travel, passing through a ‘check-in’ desk before descending to ‘passport control’ and the bar in the ‘departure lounge’. The dining area itself includes a real Cessna aircraft hanging from the ceiling and private dining alcoves using seats from first class aircraft cabins.Once seated your next destination is the food area giving you the opportunity to interact with five-star chefs to design bespoke dishes, cooked fresh to order, all for one set price. Customers can stick to just one type of cuisine or concoct a combination unique to their taste, as well as helping themselves to the brand’s famous buffet of ready-made delights.

Visited here for the first time today, we have been to other all you can eat buffets near where we live, but aren't as good as here. I especially liked the stir fry station in the middle, as I could pick exactly what I wanted. There is a great selection of food for a reasonable price.

Very busy but good value, attentive staff considering how busy it was. Food was great and topped up regularly. Quite a few vegetarian options although could have been more.

Although there is a range of food, absolutely everything I tried was terrible. The food is cheap and poor quality, lacking in taste other than all being over salted. The total bill for four was over £64 (including 3 soft drinks) - if I paid for the food we ate between us I'd have easily got change out of twenty... More

Thank you for your review, however we'd like some further feedback about your review. We offer over 100 dishes on our buffet, along side this we have live counters which will cook your food fresh. We do find it hard to believe that you couldn't find anything, in such a vast array of foods, to your taste. We'd appreciate you... More

This opened as a great restaurant, good quality and great choice of foods from around the world. But in recent years like many restaurants of this nature, it's sauces and quality of food has been reduced to cheap. Weak thin sauces, little ingredients of what you would get in true Indian curries, and buffet counters filled with cheap rubbish to... More

Thank you for your feedback. You dined in December, which happens to be our busiest period of the year, with Christmas Parties, family gatherings and celebrations. During December, we also offer an extended menu with traditional Christmas dishes, including Turkey and other essential festive treats.

Disapointing food, wide choice but all so poor. Will never go again. Expensive for the type of food. There are definitely much nicer places you can eat in for the same money in Nottingham!

Thanks for getting in touch via Trip Advisor. We were upset to read that you found our food disappointing and expensive. We offer over 100 dishes on our buffet, not including our live counters where you can have dishes cooked and prepared right in front of you. We'd recommend you bring this to our General Manager attention, and he will... More

With all the charm of an abattoir, the Red Hot World Buffet really is worse than Peachy Keans. This ex-nightclub doesn't know what it wants to be. There's a nod to various cultures and themes and that's about the strength of it. A nod. The locals refer to it as 'that restaurant with airplane seats'... No, it really does have... More

Thank you very much for getting in touch. Although we enjoyed the humour of your review, we didn't agree with your opinion at all. In regards to your comments about our décor, we have gone for an around the world theme: Hence the check in, departure, aeroplane in the ceiling, and of course, the plane seating. We do in fact...

I think the restaurants theme and decoration are very appealing and comfortable and although there is a lot of food on choice not all of it is 'finger licking good'. If they paid slightly more attention to the quality of food it wouldn't be a bad shout!
