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.

A first for me ......

This was our first visit and went on a Monday around 2.30pm. We was greeted my a friendly staff member who showed us to our table. We went to the buffet area and looked what was on offer. After speaking to a staff member she explained that there is more on offer at 4pm when extra dishes are... read more

Excellent Mongolian Special made by Ramesh and Hari, our chefs. Cannot be more highly recommended. This place fed 12 hungry soldiers and all have been thoroughly impressed.

World buffet definitely is, Indian, Italian, Mexican, Chinese etc. & Desserts galore. I challenge anyone to try and resist! It's well worth the price you pay, only extra charge is for drinks

If your looking for a buffet with good quality food avoid this place. For the price you pay the food is pretty poor. Bog standard mass produced buffet food that all has a similar taste and it's far to over priced. Also the place is huge, it's very loud and is made to look like an airport and it feels... More

I took my 6 year old to his favourite restaurant for his birthday last week (Feb 1) It's the best of all buffet type restaurants in Nottingham, and my family's favourite place to eat in town. Perfect for all ages, especially fussy children who can just help themselves to what they want. I will be returning in March to treat... More

I went to this restaurant with my son and his 15 year old daughter. I hadn't realised she'd got hollow legs, with the result we spent three hours there, the most time I've been in an eating place is a hour or so. The place is enormous, but it is well disguised, and there is loads of food of every... More

Red Hot Buffet is good value when it comes to 'all you can eat'. Fairly good choice for vegetarians: especially Indian and Chinese dishes.The highlight is the Mongolian Grill where a friendly chef called Ramez (?) cooked our food for us with a choice of sauces - his special hot sauce was delicious; however, the decor has got very worn...

We booked a table, yet we were kept waiting in a busy, drafty reception area. We were forgotten about and when we asked why we had not been seated, well past our booking time, we were told to go downstairs. The two members of staff on reception were complaining about their shift and stating they could not wait to go... More
