We tried the World Buffet for lunch today. There's lots of tables and booths although the booth seats seem very low to the ground. Our waitress was pleasant and friendly.
The buffet has many sections and lots to choose from: a Mongolian Grill with ingredients to combine for your own stir-fry, a sushi area, a Chinese food bar; an American food and appetizer bar, a salad bar and a dessert bar. The price was only $8.50 which is an excellent price for all of those options.
The ingredients in the Mongolian Grill section looked fresh and there was a cook there to prepare your food. I didn't try this, but I suspect this may have been the best option for the most quality food.
We did try some of the sushi options. Nothing stood out as being fresh or particularly tasty. It reminded me of the boxed sushi from HyVee -- OK, if that's all there is, but I wouldn't seek it out.
The salad buffet also didn't appeal to me. I did see numerous dressings and ingredients but I wasn't there for salad.
Same for the dessert buffet. Pretty standard stock of puddings, ice-creams, and pre-made cakes, none of which usually appeal to me.
I concentrated my efforts on the appetizers and Chinese food buffets. I tried the eggroll (terrible), the dim sum roll (ok), and the gyoza (good). The chicken teriyaki skewer was OK. The sesame rolls were light and fluffy on the outside but I didn't care for the sticky fruity inside. On the Chinese buffet the one dish which stood out and I went back for was the "sesame" chicken. It seemed more like salt and pepper chicken to me, but it was outstanding. I do recommend that dish. The rice and lo mein noodles were bland, the glass noodles were better but not great. We tried chili chicken wings, beef with mushrooms, chicken and broccoli, twice-cooked pork, etc. Nothing was bad but nothing was particularly tasty either. I left stuffed but not impressed by the experience.
If you are after a wide variety of food at a reasonable price, this is a good option. But if you are looking for an outstanding tasting experience, I would give this a pass.
