Updated on July 12, 2015

A former I.T. graduate turned vagabond. who travelled extensively, lived and worked in Japan for many years.

Yes that is not a typo, it really is called World World Buffet! This is one of my favorite all you can eat restaurants in Osaka. The World World buffet is located at Universal Walk near Universal Studios Japan. There are several other restaurants in the complex but this is the best place to eat. Bubba Gump Shrimp is another good restaurant in the Universal Walk complex. It has various dishes from all over the world. Although it’s not cheap for dinner at 3,888 yen per adult, and children 4 to 11 years of age pay 1,944 yen. So I guess that means children under 4 eat for free. I prefer to go for lunch, as it’s only 1,944 yen per adult and 1,296 yen for children. Keep in mind lunch is only served on weekends and Japanese holidays.
