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.

    Excellent food of wide choice.
    The only disadvantage for us was that the tables are too close to each other which affects privacy.

    Everything was really good. The food was hot and tasty. It was my birthday and my grandchildren really loved the whole experience and maybe tried food they hadn't had before.

    Brilliant, efficient and running like clockwork. The cooking stations really add to the overall experience. Mouth-watering dishes, very high standards of cleanliness. Polite and helpful staff. The tempura prawns are an especial favourite!!! Please open a branch in Portsmouth soon!!!

    Only thing that could be improved upon is that a couple of the dishes could have been a little hotter ( heat not spice).

    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....
