The World Buffet isn't just Chinese food - although they have a heavy influence on it. They also offer a salad bar, desert bars, some other American foods as well. They are mainly a Chinese restaurant and it is all good. Nice variety of everything....More

Went there Saturday night . Food was like it sat there all day ? Nothing fresh ? Most things were over cooked or cold when brought out. Very disappointing !
