Ambigú or bufet (one "f")

can be used for the translation of Buffet. Sometimes, it is used as buffet, exactly as in English, but improperly spelled.

Good luck!

buffet / bufé

In Mexico, the same word as in English is used: "buffet"

The following option might be more acceptable in other Spanish speaking countries. Note the accent on the "e":

From diccionario VOX:

I. Del fr. ant. buffet.
1. (sustantivo masculino). En las fiestas o restaurantes, mesa o mostrador que se preparan con comidas y dulces para que cada comensal se sirva lo que le apetezca.
2. (sustantivo masculino). Local o sala en que se sirve esta comida.

Buffet... we use the same word in Spanish.

It will be very helpful if you please write the whole sentence as originally given in English, so we can have an idea of the whole text to be translated into Spanish. Como... Buffet para un Rey de México. Comida de buffet para un Rey. It all depends on your text. But Buffet is Buffet in Spanish. Hope to be of more help.

If the original phrase is Buffet for the king of Mexico, the correct translation would be "Un bufet para el rey de Mexico."
There is no word in Spanish for buffet. You could ( if you want) write down the meaning of buffet in your translation but it would be very confusing. I suggest using the word bufet as it is used im most Spanish speaking contries.
