2nd lunchtime visit yesterday. I really want to like this place as so much of what they do is right, yet so much is wrong! Service in the main is great ...

Came here with friends after a few drinks, personally I think it's that type of thing, quick, easy , fill your boots type of grub. On saying that younger members of my family really rate it. Lots of choice.

Was really looking forward to eating here. Was ok, definitely did not leave hungry. Sat in a tight corner right next to another guy when the place was half empty. Service ok nothing amazing and food average and could have been hotter. Chocolate fountain was cheap chocolate.

Visited lunch time half term and the place was heaving. However they had people doing face paints and balloon animals stood on the steps that you go up to visit the buffet so it was chaos!

This was my first visit to the Red Hot World Buffet in Leeds, recommended by a friend who had been on an evening before. We'd booked as we were visiting on a Saturday lunch time.

I've been to Red Hot World Buffet before, around two years ago. However nothing has changed really since I last came, the food is always fresh and delicious.

Great selection of food from Indian, Chinese, Mexican, Italian, Japanese, American & British and a good salad selection to complement the range. Some deserts to die for as well, that's if you've got space! Not too busy though it was 7pm on a Monday night that said there was plenty of food that was all hot. A must visit if... More
