Best buffet around

We go to the World Buffet for special occasions or just on the whim as they have something for everyone and it is all very delicious.

We were in Marshfield, WI for three days/nights and ate at the World Buffet two nights in a row because it was so good. Good selection and clean restaurant. Easy to get to and parking is great because the restaurant is part of the mall. Just go in the mall entrance (by the JC Penny sign) and you will walk... More

We had a holiday lunch here in January , and as buffets go, they had a great assortment of dishes, we liked the sushi, and they even had Kimchi! It's a casual place, and they also have lots of seating. Location in the mall gives them a good customer turnover, which means the dishes aren't stale! we'll go back again.... More

There was a hair ball in my friends food. Then we were treated like we put it in there when it was baked into the meat. Then was told never to come back. Ya I think we will go to a HAIR BALL free place next time. It destroyed my visit with my friend and now my wanting to eat... More

We have lived and traveled all over the world, and being Asian-food connoisseurs, we eat any Thai, Chinese and Korean we can get. Welp, THIS restaurant in Marshfield, WI (located in the mall there) is A-MA-ZING. The food is off the scale, ESPECIALLY their peanut-butter chicken and hot and spicy chicken -- two dishes we've had at dozens of other... More

I loved the huge variety of food! Everything was excellent, and the prices are very reasonable. This is located within a very nice shopping mall.

Sea food, rice pudding, teriyaki chicken, pleasant décor, helpful attentive plate removal, buffet supply relentless, chopsticks by choice, knife and fork standard. Impossible variety! At less than $9.00 without drink, control yourself...for about the same amount, you could have eaten where they served you a worn out dairy cow as a ground patty concoction. Plenty of parking. Just behind Mickey-"D",s.,... More

It's always clean and service is fast and the servers are courteous. My issue is that from my last 5 experiences, I have had soggy stuffed mushrooms, a variety of pork and chicken that were quite dry, and generally, just so-so tasting food. If you're looking for quantity, this is the place. If you're looking for quality, I would suggest... More
