As the fastest-growing buffet restaurant chain in the UK, Red Hot World Buffet celebrates an unrivalled reputation for providing eager customers with a range of cuisines from all over the world.
Offering freshly made dishes from across the globe, the chain celebrates an extensive menu that boasts a huge list of cuisines, including Italian, Cajun Mediterranean, Thai, Tex Mex, Chinese, English and Japanese.
Red Hot World Buffet’s latest restaurant opened in Leicester in July on the corner of the town’s busy High Street. The 400 cover restaurant serves up a selection of tasty treats, from traditional shepherd’s pie, grilled lamb chops and pizza, to vegetable lasagne, lamb rogan josh and mini meatballs in a tomato and red pepper sauce.
Design at Source provided all the interior design work on the new restaurant in Leicester, working alongside shop fitter Rocket. Design at Source is an interior design practice providing architectural design services to the leisure, hospitality and retail sectors. The practice has worked on many prestigious projects including the roll out of Genting Casino’s from Southend to Edinburgh, nightclubs nationwide including Gatecrasher and Control, as well as many restaurants such as Rosie’s Diner in Leeds.
Speaking to Premier Hospitality about Leicester’s new Red Hot World Buffet, Design at Source Company Director, Anthony Bishop, said:
“There are about six kitchens involved in a Red Hot World Buffet, so the client needed an architectural practice, who was imaginative and had the resources to be able to turn the project around in a quick time frame. We’ve delivered quite a number of large projects over the years and we’ve built up quite a reputation for producing works like this within a tight programme.”
“The site is doing exceedingly well and is very busy. The restaurant is in a very good location, caters for a lot of people each day and the feedback so far has been great.”
Red Hot World Buffet was installed within what was effectively two buildings. The restaurant occupies a site which previously housed the public house The Litten Tree, whilst incorporating a unit from High Cross Shopping Centre.
Discussing the internal design layout, Anthony said:
“All of the food stations present food from all over the world and customers can go up and down as much as they wish too. As world and travel is a big part of the offering we dressed up the restaurant accordingly. The bar area is loosely based on the idea of the jet age, taking influences from the 1960s and ‘70s. This area is very much like the VIP of an airport lunge preparing customers for a journey.
“The next area is the runway and this prepares diners before they come to an American-Italian station, then a Malaysian station, a British station, an Indian and a Chinese station. Each is individually themed but with a contemporary and opulent twist.”
“The buffet-style offering is becoming a lot more professional in its approach and Red Hot World Buffet is very much aware of the people that it is serving. There’s a huge market for a good quality restaurant like this and Red Hot World Buffet ticks all the right boxes. For us at Design at Source it is very important for us to be at the forefront of the market like this and that’s exactly where we are with this site in Leicester.”
