As you can see here in the restaurant kitchen layout diagram below, the kitchen is the primary central unit of any restaurant. This is where food gets ordered, prepped, cooked, and plated before being served to customers. As the restaurant kitchen layout suggests, a good layout would facilitate streamlined production and provide efficient workspaces to the restaurant staff, including the Head Chef. It should be noted here that the galley kitchen layout for a restaurant is considered the most efficient layout for a narrow space. Placing the range or cooktop on one side of the kitchen and the sink on the opposite wall allows easy workflow.
