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 service, very good range of choice and standard of food. A member of staff needs to be on hand to keep the food dispensers closed though, as lazy diners tend to leave them open and that means the food can be too cool.

    Haven't been to Cosmo for a couple of years, we had started to find the food quality poor and greasy. The salad has improved and the change in dishes very much an improvement. Really glad to see the horrible ice cream scooping has been replaced by a soft ice cream dispenser. A winner with the children. Sadly despite advertising 'many vegan' options, my son ended up eating chips and bread rolls as even the vegetable curry and rice had fish or dairy in them. The signs that tell you what allergens or ingredients in were small and confusing and when I asked specifically what dishes were vegan we repeatedly got told to ask someone else because they didn't know or to read the tiny confusing cards.
