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.

Dishes displayed on a la carte menus are representative of the type of food available at the restaurant.

    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.
