International Buffet is delighting diners with a twist on the traditional buffet: serving not one type of cuisine, but an array of Continental and international dishes.

Discover a world of possibilities at this Red Deer buffet

Unique approach treats diners to a diverse menu

What are you hungry for today? Rosemary chicken? Succulent roast beef or butter chicken? Or a little comfort food, like savoury mac & cheese – with bacon, of course!

The good news is that you don’t have to choose when your lunch or dinner destination is Red Deer’s International Buffet and Lounge.

Serving diners in the north end of the city, the restaurant opened with a twist on the traditional buffet, cooking up not one type of cuisine, but an array of Continental and international dishes.

“We wanted to take some of the most popular buffet dishes from around the world and bring them together in one restaurant, prepared each day with fresh ingredients and care,” says general manager Brent Taylor. “Our customers are really enjoying our approach, and having so much selection in one place.”

Familiar favourites + new possibilities

While some items – like the butter chicken and roast beef – are served every day, others rotate through the menu, meaning every time you visit you can discover something new, like flavourful jerk chicken. Seafood fans might find a Balinese fish curry, Spanish seafood paella, or a North American favourite, garlic chilli mussels.

Soup and salads are available daily, as are selections suitable for specific nutrition needs, including gluten-free, low-carb, vegan, paleo and plant-based dishes.

And if something sweet is a must to finish off your meal, select from a variety of tempting desserts.

A focus on quality

While the scope of the buffet is unique, so too is its approach.

The focus at International Buffet and Lounge is on quality, not simply quantity – home-style dishes like meatloaf and southern fried chicken with cornbread, alongside the chef’s Taste of the World options.

Yes, the menu is different every day, but you know you’ll find quality ingredients crafted into an array of delicious dishes.

Service you can count on

This fresh approach also extends to the service, particularly as the restaurant welcomes guests during this time of COVID-19.

A Plexiglas shield protects the food while you browse the day’s choices, and to prevent multiple people touching the serving utensils, a server, wearing a mask, will serve your selections. While the buffet is not self-serve for now, you are welcome to return multiple times, Taylor notes.

In addition to take-out options, the spacious setting offers room for in-restaurant dining. For those who prefer ordering online to go, check out their a la carte menu here, where options also change daily.

Visit the International Buffet and Lounge at Bay 10, 7110 50th Ave., where lunch is served daily from 11 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., ($15.99) and dinner ($19.99) from 4:30 to 9 p.m. Catering is also available. Small groups can also be accommodated in accordance with Provincial Health guidelines. Learn more at internationalbuffetreddeer.com
