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.
Not been to the Rendezvous for years but i remember it being very good. It has its pro's that you can choose from a menu and is cooked fresh for you but the con being you can't be overly adventurous because they get shitty when you leave food.
At least that's what it used to be like.

Another option for Cired, the World food place down the bottom of town near the police station
You just don't actually like Chinese food do you?

Is there such a thing as a good Chinese in Swindon? They're all pretty shite in my experience. Go for a curry instead.

There seem to be an equal mix of mediocre and awful Chinese takeaways, i'm yet to find one that I would rush back to.

Rendezvous every time - the new place in Old Town is just as good food wise as ever, if not better, and good service.  Their beef in black bean sauce is best I have ever had.  Rendezvous take-aways above average as well (we use Abbey Meads - generally pretty good for take away)

Avoid what was the Chinese Experience like the plague (unless you want to catch the plague) - bloody awful food, everything tastes the same (grease in a grease sauce, just with different bits of (non-discernible) meat floating in it), loads of high sugar desserts for the kids (yay).  Was OK 20 years ago but now truly atrocious.

Generally speaking, all you can eat buffets are fucking awful
