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.

    Plenty of selection, all dishes are absolute spot on. Worth the money for sure. Service is fine too but ordering from the bar took a while. It looked like somebody being train by another staff which is absolutely okay but there was no 'trainee' name badge on him what could help recognise the situation for customers.

    Staff are very attentive. We had a party of 3 and wanted to be sat at back of restaurant as none of us like to be sat near a window which proved to be no problem to the staff. Food was delicious as always. Good value for money. The only negative is when it's full it's hard to move from table to food without getting knocked. Having said that I would definitely be back! Thanks for great afternoon!
