Here are our suggestions of where to eat to suit your needs and the occasion:
When you want to impress a client – If you’re taking a client or business contact out for a meal to seal the deal on a big proposal you’ve been working on, then Nottingham has plenty of top-class restaurants to impress. One that’s definitely worth mentioning is Nottingham’s first Michelin-starred restaurant, Sat Bains. Enjoy a unique dining experience and have your own personalised feast created for you by choosing from a list of ingredients, plus a whole range of dining options including seven or 10-course taster menus.
When you need something quick and delicious on the go – If you’re looking for something to grab on the go, Brown Bettys sandwich shop on St James’s Street comes highly recommended by Nottingham inhabitants. Good quality food at even better value, this family run business have been serving food since 1985. They sell breakfast foods, sandwiches, salads, and a variety of hot foods.
When you’re really hungry – There are a number of all you can eat buffets in Nottingham including Chinese buffet May Sum, and around-the-world cuisines at Cosmo and Peachy Keens, all offering a delicious range of food. Our pick of the lot is Red Hot World Buffet; this restaurant really takes you on a trip around the world as the restaurant is designed to resemble an airport, with décor including an arrivals/departures board, duty free, and even a few tables in the restaurants where you can sit in actual airplane seats. All this on top of the choices of food from a number of cuisines including Italians, American, Chinese, Indian and Japanese makes Red Hot an experience that you have to try.
When you’re looking for something a bit different – For a really entertaining meal out, visit Eviva Taverna in Nottingham’s Lace Market. In addition to the delicious Greek cuisine, this restaurant offers traditional Greek dancing and belly dancing if you request it. You can watch the experts do it and even take part yourself if you’re feeling brave! Or just enjoy the party atmosphere whilst you tuck into your mezze.
And finally, one you just can’t miss out on – For burgers that look and taste like nothing you’ve ever had on your plate before, Annie’s Burger Shack is a must-try when eating out in Nottingham. Burgers stacked high with weird and wonderful toppings fill the menu invented by Anmarie Spaziano, including the Elvis Burger, which is topped with ‘peanut butter and jelly,’ or the Vermonter, which contains pancakes, bacon and maple syrup! You’ll struggle to choose between the range of choices available, and might even struggle finishing the meal with their incredibly generous portions, including a choice of sides. As a bonus, all burgers on the menu can be served as vegetarian or vegan options as well.
