Cafeteria Service - Dragon Dining

A great meal and a friendly smile from Dragon Dining await you in our modern, centrally located cafeteria. We happily take care of all the catering needs at YIS. You will find us busily preparing lunches on the ground floor of the John Inge Building next to the fresh herb garden and main playground.

Understanding the important link between well nourished and high achieving students, we follow the nutritional guidelines of the Children’s Food Trust and relish the opportunity to create beautifully natural food from scratch every day. We offer a fresh, creative, nutritious and environmentally responsible approach to meal service for all the YIS school community.

Menus feature interesting dishes, some exotic, some comforting, some organic, some vegetarian, but always child friendly and freshly cooked onsite. There’s a wide range of options from around the world to reflect the international nature of our student base. We have a strong focus on fresh, regionally sourced ingredients, including vegetables and herbs grown on campus in collaboration with students and a number of organic farms that we take regular delivery from during their growing season. All menus are posted on the YIS website and lunches are served up daily without the hassle of pre ordering or bringing home lunch boxes to wash.

Cafeteria Service Hours

The cafeteria is open before school for breakfast, and serves healthy snacks at morning and afternoon recess. Lunch is divided into four sittings so students are given enough space and time to enjoy their tasty meal. Students may purchase lunch from Dragon Dining or bring their own lunch if they wish. If bringing food to school, please adhere to the school’s Peanut-safe Policy, as we do at Dragon Dining. In addition to full cafeteria service for students and staff, we offer fresh foods and take-out meals to the YIS community.

Meal Pricing

Lunch sets are nutritionally balanced and right-sized for children from all sections of the school. Prices are ¥450 for ELC lunch sets, ¥600 for elementary, and ¥750 for middle school, high school and adult lunch sets. Second helpings of main dishes are free and the set lunch also includes a full open salad bar. A la carte items are also available for purchase.

Managing Your Dragon Dining Account

We use a cashless service to take payments for meal service. Once you’ve set up a Dragon Dining account, your child need only scan their fingerprint or key in their ID number to make a purchase. To open your Dragon Dining account, just stop by the cafeteria once you're here.

We look forward to seeing you soon and wish you a healthy and happy school year.

All the best,

Dragon Dining
