We were recently asked ‘What is our favourite place to visit in Cardiff?’, by Millennium Hotels, and given the chance to write a review about it for their Millennium Guide to Cardiff.
Well, that place is Red Hot World Buffet, a fantastic all you can eat buffet restaurant in the city centre.
Part of a chain, this restaurant is absolutely fab for families like ours, where everyone likes different food.
We love the actual restaurant, the colours inside, the layout, and upstairs is really wow! As are the toilets (well the ladies anyway!) It is a great place to celebrate any sort of occasion, we were meeting up with MeeMee, my biggest sister, who travelled over from Bristol.
The prices vary depending what day you visit, and what time of day. We visited at 12.30pm on a Saturday. We had the lunch buffet. There is a huge selection of food, starters, main courses and desserts. Chinese, Indian, pastas, pizza, sushi, salads, soup, potato wedges, chips, burgers, baked beans, cottage pie, lasagne, and lots of yummy deserts from apple crumble and custard to many different flavours of ice cream.
We booked a table on line the day before, it is easy to do, and you do not have to pay any deposit. Than goodness we booked, because it was super busy! (There was a HUGE rugby game in Cardiff – Wales v New Zealand!)
We were seated straight away, and served our drinks quickly too. Even though it was busy, there was no queuing and everyone went up to help themselves to whatever they wanted. Mummy got me some vegetables, cottage pie (which was super yummy) and roast potatoes. Then I wanted some pizza!
Between us, we tried pretty much everything! Everything we tried was hot and tasty, and it was all replaced as soon as the dishes were nearly empty.
Mummy finished the meal with a lovely latte!
Here are our top tips for visiting Red Hot World Buffet.
- Book your table as soon as you can. Even the day before our visit, when we booked, there was only 12.30 or 3.30 left for lunch.
- Allow two hours for your visit.
- Limit what you have on your plate, you can have as many visits for food as you want, and a clean plate, and lots of clean cutlery on the table.
- Soft drinks are non refillable, and are not the cheapest at £2.80 for a large glass.
- Coffees, however are only £1!! For Latte and Cappuccino too! Mummy loved that!
- Check their website for offers, discounts and the latest prices.
We paid £10.99 each for the Saturday lunch menu, and big bro Luke, as a child was half price! I was free! It was brilliant value for money.
When you visit Cardiff, be sure to try the Red Hot World Buffet!
