Planning factors

Before any restaurant or inn is built, the organizational sequence should be carefully planned. It is essential to establish what meals will be offered, and at what quality and quantity

Bring in planning specialists in kitchen and cold store design, as well as in electrical, heating and ventilation systems and washing/toilet facilties.

The position of the site will suggest what type of inn or restaurant is likely to be suitable.

Any function or conference rooms should have movable furniture to allow flexibility to use

A food bar may be installed for customers who are in hurry .

The kitchen, storerooms, delivery points, toilets and other services areas should be grouped around the dinning room, although toilets can be on another floor.

Structural columns in a dinning room are best in middle of a group tables or at the corner of a table


The entrance way represents a key element — the first, in fact — of a dining experience. The entrance reflects the hospitality the staff will deliver once diners take their seats.

Whether transforming an existing location or building from scratch, a restaurateur should plan to carefully execute three important elements from the outside in:

  • The doorway
  • The foyer
  • The welcoming staff

Entrance basics

  • Define clearly A good restaurant entrance is easily foundand easily understood, which means that customers can readily identify the entrance by day and night. There are several design cues that help define an entrance: awnings and canopies, upright plantings or other decor flanking a doorway, and changes in the depth of the building façade.
  • Design for guest comfort. Many restaurateurs put a lot of thought into how their restaurants look but may drop the ballwhen it comes to function.
  • Colors. Bright and highly saturated colors are generally associatedwith casual and “fun” restaurants. Painting your front door a bright, contrasting color may highlight the entry andsets the stage for a more relaxed and casual dining experience.
  • Lighting. Lighting seems to be a really crucial clue regarding the quality level of your restaurant.
  • Signage. How you present the restaurant’s name communicates as much if not more than the name itself. As an example, consider these different ways of depicting the same restaurant name

Dinning spaces

  • To be able to eat comfortably , one person requires a table area of around 60 cm wide by 40 cm deep. This provides sufficient clearance between adjacent dinners.
  • Although an additional 20 cm of space in the centre for dishes and tureens is sometimes desirable, an overall width of 80-85cm is suitable for a dinning table.

The main room of a restaurant is the customer’s dinning room, and the facilities should correspond with the type of operations. A number of additional tables and chairs should be available for flexible table groupings. If appropriate, provide special tables for regular customers.
