I know that this has probably been posted somewhere here before, but I am looking for a recommended Chinese is Swindon, who offer all you can eat buffet.  I am sure that there are some gastronomes on here who could help.  Trying to organize something for my drivers

Some may dissagree but I've been to the place that used to be the Chinese Experience a few times and really enjoyed it.
They do Lunch and Evening Buffets. Unfortunately at Lunch you don't get thinks like crispy duck, sushi and the teppenyaki station but there is still a lot of choice.

I Like Chinese
They only come up to your knees
Yet they're always friendly
And they're ready to please

Seriously? Been a couple of times as the kids like it, it's been fucking rank. Grease laden lukewarm "food" and an extremely limited range at that. The mould on the walls gives you something entertaining to look at, though, while you're trying not to look at the food.

Not quite in Swindon but if you don't mind travelling to the wild extremes of Bassett, Oriental Aroma on the High Street is really good for veggies.

Is that the one at the top of town near(ish) to the Witherspoons.

Can only agree with you if so, dreadful. Went once, then back to TCRFKATCE

You can only go from your own experience I guess. We went twice, first time about a year or so ago, it was terrible, but decided it might just have been a one-off so gave into the kids' nagging and gave it another go about 6-9 months ago(?) and it was just as bad in terms of quality but with less choice. So at least it didn't take as long to decide what to dislike Smiley

Another option for Cired, the World food place down the bottom of town near the police station

Another vote for avoiding the Banquet - the mould on the walls alone should be a warning sign to people.

Why did i have to marry a 5ft, 7 stone woman who eats less for dinner than i can fit in one mouth full.
I never get to go to all you can eats because we'll pay 15/20 quid and she'll be full after half a plate. I've been wanting to go to the World Food Buffet and the Brazilian all you can eat for ages....

I haven't been to the new Rendezvous yet, but I imagine it's just the same as the one by the Wyvern, best Chinese I've been to in Swindon and they do an all you can eat buffet.
