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.

    First time here. I’m a vegetarian, but great choice of all food. You will not leave hungry. Husband a meat eater and he was totally spoilt for choice. Desserts are amazing and could have quite happily had one of everything on display. Servers were attentive and removed plates very quickly, if you wanted more, you just get a clean one. Will definitely be back, location only a 4 star because we are not local to it. Make sure you do not eat before you go, to make the most of all the dishes that are there to enjoy.

    Great range of food as usual and we were seated quite quickly. Massive queues as we left, so I would recommend the earlier slots :)
