Food was extremely good. The only thing is that it was difficult to get in and out from the table to go to fetch the food! But still worth it,

Bringing a globe-trotting menu to Berkshire, COSMO Reading presents a diverse buffet offering with recipes from Italy, Mexico, India, Japan, and more. Guests can watch the chefs at work in the open kitchen, and at various live cooking stations.

The COSMO menu offers dishes from around the world, freshly prepared using fresh ingredients. Amongst the eclectic list of cooking stations, find sushi, dim sum, teppanyaki and an Asian carvery, alongside a robata grill and an Indian tandoori and curry station. Other exciting options include a pizzeria and a dedicated seafood station.

Inspired by the 5-star hotels of the Far East, the décor at COSMO restaurant is as extravagant as the menus. Bottomless soft drinks are joined by a range of wines on the drinks menu, and the Belgian chocolate fountain is always a crowd-pleasing favourite.

A family-friendly favourite, COSMO in Reading is just 4 minutes’ walk from Reading Train Station.

    Favourite dishes... It's been a while since I been to Cosmo but I'm sure on my last visit the noodles where made fresh while u waited.. The noodles where already prepared and luke warm. None of the lids on the dishes where closed... Ther was only one Asian vegetarian dish (Mattar Paner no Sholay or other dishes) and no nans.. A few broken pieces which where rock hard... The manager said they where still being prepared.... THe best bit of the whole night was the desserts....

    Food was excellent, Food prices were very reasonable. Drinks prices were rather expensive. Waiting staff were generally very good with the exception of one member of staff, when asking for drinks they had extreme difficulty in understanding my request and I had to keep repeating myself. It seemed that the earpiece they were wearing was not helping because they kept having to remove it from their ear, this made ordering very difficult and annoying. Also on one occasion I asked a young girl for some drinks and she muttered something and just walked away, I had to ask someone else. On the whole though we had a very enjoyable evening. This was the second time we have been and will certainly return.

    Brilliant evening. Staff really friendly and helpful. Amazing foods with an excellent vegetarian choice, couldn't choose a favorite, enjoyed everything I tried. Puddings to die for. Thanks Cosmo for a brilliant birthday evening :)

    Not much on the lunch serving so a bit disappointing. don't know if the evening serving would be better but the dessert section was beyond poor and nowhere near as good as za za bazaar in Bristol. Food was tasty just not much choice.
