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.

    Food was bland, service was terrible and the atmosphere was overly loud. However my other half did enjoy her drink

    Lovely food. Excellent choices. Especially loved the profiteroles and chocolate fountain! Thank you for my birthday cake too

  • ((((( 28 September 2018 by Roy from Reading

    All food is great but my favourite is chicken korma.
    Always a pleasure eating in combos.

    Plus points: you can arrive from 15 minutes before to 15 minutes after time booked.
    You bypass the queue (which can be long)

    Restaurant: 120 items of choice from roast to Indian, Chinese, kids items, salads, deserts and bottomless drinks.
    Go back as many times as you want, so don't put too much on your plate - there's always a spare plate waiting for you
    It's cheaper midweek lunch, but the more expensive items are missing.
    When seated you are given a leaving time. Just ignore it and stay as long as you want, they don't pressure you to go.
    Wheelchair and baby friendly (I don't know if there was a disabled toilet on the ground floor)
    Minus points: if I have to pick one, some of the food is too salty.

    Great choice of food, catered for the whole group.

    Good variety of food all round great deserts bit pushy to get you out after 2hours if we had 2hrs from when we were seated as our table wasn't ready when we arrived
