Dangerous Dinner is the seventh level of Kirby's Return to Dream Land and the second and final area on Halcandra. A place of high volcanic activity and large mountains, Kirby and company journey through it after the crash landing of the Lor Starcutter. On their adventure, they travel across the fiery land in search of Landia, who stands at the top of one of the volcanoes and acts as the boss of the level.
Dangerous Dinner introduces lava into the game. As previously mentioned, it can create towering pillars of lava, as well as spheres of molten rock that float around the screen. Iron Barbars dwell in some lava pits. Kirby can use Super Abilities to clear the way in some stages, revealing dimensional rifts. After completing all of the stages, the player can fight Landia.
Aside from two Super Abilities, all Copy Abilities are present.
- Stage 3 of Dangerous Dinner contains a secret area; in the last room, Kirby must float up to the molten planetoid toward the top of the screen and press up. He will enter it like he would enter a door. The room is windy and will push Kirby downwards. He can collect food, stars, red stars and a blue star as he falls.
- A stage based off of Stage 1 of Dangerous Dinner appears in Kirby Fighters Deluxe. It is named Haldera Volcano, which is likely a portmanteau of caldera (a volcanic feature) with HAL, a name created in a similar fashion to those of the Halberd and Halcandra.
- The music themes used in all three are reused for Stage 7 of Endless Explosions in Kirby: Triple Deluxe.
