Newly refurbished, the Buffet World offers a great selection of the freshest seafood on top of its barbeque, dessert and sushi stations.
A long line of diners was already waiting outside before the Buffet World opened its doors on Friday night. The tables and the buffet lines filled up fast. I proceeded to the far end of the room where the sushi bar was. Sushi chef Joey Estuesta was busy arranging different kinds of sushi and they were “disappearing” faster than he could prepare new ones.
There were also trays of steamed green mussels, steamed blue crabs, shrimp as well as fresh sashimi slices neatly arranged on boat-shaped platters.
The barbecue and dessert stations were also irresistible to diners.
Saipan World Resort sales and marketing department/local sales manager Michael Babauta said seafood night Friday was their response to the strong demand for seafood from tourists and locals.
“Our executive chef and his team came up with a menu that will surely make you taste buds jump and sing,” Babauta said, adding that they also revamped the buffet line.
“Our executive chef wanted it to have a greater impact so we now have better lighting, better fixtures and a better buffet line,” he said.

“We are inviting the community to a unique dining experience — mouthwatering seafood and succulent specials,” Babauta said.
The price is $27 for adults and half price for children, inclusive of unlimited drinks.
