Restaurant description

Award-winning buffet restaurant, COSMO World Buffet, offers unlimited authentic dining at affordable prices in sophisticated and luxurious surroundings.

At COSMO, you don’t have to choose between your favourite cuisines; for one fixed price, experience live cooking stations and take your pick from over 150 dishes. Watch as teppanyaki experts grill steaks and fresh seafood in front of you, and chefs lay on a never-ending array of fresh dishes from around the world.

Serving up food theatre, COSMO was voted best restaurant chain in the Golden Chopsticks Awards, and one of the Top Three restaurant brands in the U.K. for customer satisfaction in the CGA Peach’s BrandTrack survey.

On Friar Street right in the town centre, Cosmo Reading is a stone’s throw from the popular Oracle shopping centre and Reading’s best bars, clubs and shops.

    It’s really great to have international menus for better food options. The staffs were great and the price is reasonable.

    Lovely food, great service, I would like to say I think the tables are very close and tight getting in and out

    Friendly, helpful staff and lovely good. Sadly we had a 10-minute wait for our (booked) table in the extremely crowded lobby. Once inside, the food and drinks were great but it become incredibly crowded. However, I can’t fault the staff - they were all great. My kids loved it.

    Very good service Food very good Customers maybe should be reminded to shut the food containers after use as lots were being left open so food was not always piping hot .

    Main course food, staff excellent. Desserts disappointing. Seating cramped, tables too close.

    Good night, with reasonable food at good price. Started running out of some food items quite early in the evening but given that it was NYE that was understandable.
