Been here many times before. Food and service, as always, were excellent.
This time we were seated next to the window; an even better experience!

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.

    Good selection & variety, we loved it
    will be good if seafood could be cooked separately from Meat in Tappanki corner to accommodate everyone.

    I usually come during dinner on the weekend. This was the first time during lunch. The spread was was minimal but sufficient. Chinese was excellent.The chicken satay and bbq ribs were tasty. Dissatisfied with the stir fried prawns, could have been shelled before cooking, no time during lunch to peel shells at the table.The Indian section on the whole needs improvement. Can tell that it was not made by an Indian chef. Sushi was excellent including creative use of Togarashi.

    I reserved a table for 12 people. Overall we were all impressed with the standard and variety of the food. Would eat with you again as the range of food suited everyone including the vegetarian.

    Fast fresh food dining experience with a great choice of foods from Indian, Mexican, Chinese, Italian to a good old roast dinner. Everything tastes great and the Sushi is very nice. Food from the grill is cooked to perfection and the Prawns are just amazing!

    Fantastic selection of desserts in delightful bite size portions are a winner. Gives you room to try a few!!

    Great dining experience for all the family.
