Gnome Restaurant, also known as the Aluft Aloft Gnome Food Delivery Service, is a minigame that involves the art of gnome cooking and delivering this food to various customers as quickly as possible. The minigame is run by Aluft Gianne Jr on the 1st floor[UK]2nd floor[US] of the Grand Tree, in the Tree Gnome Stronghold.

How to play[edit | edit source]

Aluft's employees sat around a strange fruit.

Players start by speaking to Aluft Gianne Jr in the Grand Tree. He is located north of the bank on the west side of the 1st floor[UK]2nd floor[US]. Level 29 Cooking is required to play this minigame. Before starting, players are introduced to the art of gnome cooking and Gnome cocktails in the form of a small tutorial. Aluft Gianne Sr, located one platform east of Aluft Gianne Jr, will get the player to prepare four different gnome dishes. Blurberry is located on the same floor, but in the south-east section of the tree. He will get the player to prepare four different cocktails.

Once players have completed the cooking and cocktail-making introduction, they can start running a delivery service around Gielinor. Aluft Gianne Jr will give the player a new task in the form of a delivery box. The player may choose an easy task, which involves a delivery in or around the Grand Tree, or a hard task, which could be anywhere in Gielinor. Easy tasks have a time limit of 6 minutes, whereas hard tasks have a limit of 11 minutes. Players can click the delivery box at any time to refresh their memory about the required food and destination.

A player can choose not to accept a hard job, but there is a 5 minute and 30 second waiting penalty before they can get another hard job. Although most players wait this time out, it is actually about twice as fast (depending on the customer and the requested food) to do an easy job then return for another hard job.

The delivered food has to be prepared by the player; premade items (bought from the restaurant or bar) do not work and cannot be used. However, the player-made food items can be bought from the Grand Exchange, but some items take a while to buy. The tangled toad's legs dropped by warped tortoises, tortoises, and warped terrorbirds may be used when this particular item is requested for delivery, saving time/ingredients or money (from not buying them) if collected when killing them. However, it is not required to prepare each food item or drink separately after receiving a new task. In other words, players can prepare several of each of the 20 possible items beforehand and store these in their bank. Since Aluft Gianne Jr is very close to a bank, almost all deliveries can be done in only a few minutes time, which increases the chance for receiving a good tip.

  • Fairy ring DLQ is fairly close to Nardah.
  • Wingstone has a very large wandering radius, so you may need a few waterskins. However, he rarely leaves the area around the Heart of Gielinor entrance, so search around there as well as the nearby encampment.

Rewards[edit | edit source]

For each delivery, one or three reward points are obtained, depending on the difficulty of the delivery.

Reward tokens[edit | edit source]

Getting some food delivered.

Reward tokens offers players the possibility to order gnome food items themselves. However, the type of food offered is completely random, and the items cannot be chosen individually. Players will need free inventory spots to hold the food.

  • Players receive points for completing a delivery. Every easy delivery gives one point. Hard deliveries earn three.
  • After obtaining 12 points, players receive a reward token.
  • After that, every 12 points earned gives an additional food item to be delivered. Players can have up to 10 items of food delivered to them at once.
  • The items received can be used to complete future deliveries.

An outfit piece may be awarded in addition to one of the tips above; however, it is not always guaranteed. The Sous chef's toque add-on is only able to be received once the full set has been completed.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • This minigame was the first ever to be released, though it was not originally designated as one. It was launched on 12 December 2002 together with the Agility skill and the Gnome Stronghold area. It consisted of players being assigned to bring multiple drinks or dishes to Blurberry or Aluft Gianne Sr, and they were then compensated with coins. This was changed in a major update on 7 August 2006.
  • Players could skip a delivery and get another one immediately, by having a gnome token (in bank or inventory) and dropping the delivery box. This bug was fixed in November - December, 2008.
  • After completion of While Guthix Sleeps, the player may be assigned to send food to Hazelmere, but the player will inform Gianne Jr. of his death and receive a new order. If you get assigned to send food to Hazelmere during the quest (while the heroes are in Falador castle) he will only talk about the quest and not acknowledge that you have his order.
  • Originally, if a player had Hazelmere as a delivery order, he would talk after receiving his food. This has been updated and Hazelmere now "nods in thanks" instead.
  • Occasionally, easy orders may tip 1 or 0 coins. This may be a reference to the practice of stiffing, where a restaurant patron leaves a poor tip or no tip, often in response to poor service.
