JRC again and as good as usual. Love to just prowl around and select my favourites. Two meals for us and then a bottle of water for £33.28. Great stuff.

Food is the ingredient that binds us together! As you might have known, we're formerly called JRC. But one day in 2016, Mr. Yu was invited to Swindon by his close friend. He decided to settle down here with his passion and culinary skills. YC Global Buffet is one of a kind, located near to Swindon Railway station and town centre. We’re the only buffet restaurant that puts emphasis on great ingredients being freshly prepared using authentic recipes from the East to the West. You would be enjoying a gastronomic journey from the Chinese country market food vendors to the fishing villages of Thailand, by jumping onto a boat of floating market in Vietnam and drifting to the exotic islands of Malaysia and then on to India. We offer a range of global dishes, featuring Indian, Chinese, Thai and Japanese. Watch our chefs prepare dishes at the live cooking stations. Open for lunch and dinner you can enjoy a mouth-watering all-you-can-eat buffet selection for one set price.
