For the price, Todai IS a rip-off. There's one in the mall near the business park where I work. If it was about $7, it'd be worth it, but for $20, I'll never go again.
In general, I think Indian food makes the best buffets. The stuff is generally just 30 different flavors of mush, anyway, so it holds up well under a heat lamp or in a steam tray. If the food was good when it was originally made, it'll probably still be good on the steam table 3 hours later.
Also, any buffet where you pick raw food and they cook it for you or you cook it yourself at your table is usually pretty good, too. This is usually found at either Mongolian BBQ places or at a Taiwanese hot pot/hibachi places.
