The World Buffet in Galesburg offers so many choices of food to choose from, you can't possibly try them all. They offer the traditional pork, beef and chicken Asian dishes that every other Asian cuisine has, as well as some American dishes too. This place may have the most choices when it come to the dessert selection. I think that... More

If I coukd give this place a negative rating I would!! There was a hair in our sesame chicken! It was gross. When we told the waitress she laughed! The staff although cheerful loitered around while we ate staring at us. It was weird. I will not be bringing my family back!!

A lady came to clear our table and we ask for a refill; she didn't acknowledge us, and needless to say we never received our refills. We confronted the lady we gave our payment to, all she... 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 !

Terrible! My family and I went to world buffet today and had a lady who worked there tell us that we needed to have our son stop playing with his food because it was making a mess she didn't want to clean. My son is 2 years old and is a messy eater sometimes and we were going to clean... More

I've dined at the World Buffet several times for lunch, this buffet offers a very good variety of Chinese entrees along with a few American choices. For a buffet the food is always fresh, the service is good and the prices are very reasonable.

It's been awhile since i've been here. My wife and son don't care for Chinese, so I don't get to go here often, but I like it. A WIDE selection of choices to be had here. Foods from different parts of the world, not just Chinese. I'll go back again sometime. But since i'm usually with the wife, not sure... More
