Description: 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.

Food was fine but staff ws really bad...was there around 8.50pm for family dinner..it closes at 10.30pm. Around 9.15 they start mopping...could smell liquids was not good for children..ask the staff if they could stop, as it smell strong...they did so.. After 10 mins supervisor, told that same staff to mop..the staff didn't do so as we still sitting with other 2 customers.. The supervisor himself started to mop around us... Kids couldn't take the strong smell..we had to leave soon... very very poor.. Supervisor has no customer services in him...

Went with large group. The stsff, though polite and helpful struggled to organise large table even though booked in advance and reminded on arrival. Plenty of variety (although I have been to buffets with greater choice) but food bland and disappointing. Lacking in any kind of atmosphere.

We’ve visited this place before and reviewed it but on this visit we took family from the States and they LOVED it.

There’s a good selection of food suitable for everyone and our family being vegans were a bit sceptical but their scepticism was beaten by the choices and quality of food on offer, they’ve been raving about it ever since

The service was excellent and the restaurant clean and well maintained, from the outside it looked quite quiet inside but inside it was bustling, another sign of a good restaurant.

Family wise it’s ideal; reasonable prices and something for everyone

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.

It's your standard oriental buffet style restaurant with a few other choices too, but it leaves much to be desired in my opinion.
The place is large but diners were sat very close together leaving the other side of the restaurant empty. The tables are situated very close together which wasn't the best. Sitting on top of each other isn't enjoyable for me at least.
The food which was big in choice I found to be at best luke warm. Much of it was cold by the time I put it in my mouth and I hadn't eaten slowly or piled my plate up allowing it to cool. So in summary it's not all that to be honest. Ok if you want to load up on food but nothing more than that.
