Good but could be better

Having visited a Cosmo buffet in Derby we were looking forward to a tasty lunch. Unfortunately we left slightly disappointed. Like other Cosmo's it was quite busy and you are herded to a table. I will say all wait staff were pleasant and helpful and we had no complaints. This branch of Cosmo lacked... read more

Contemporary modern interior, fairly spacey and not too busy when I visited with colleagues for a quick lunch. Its a cheapo buffet, so don't expect Michelin Star quality and you won't disappoint yourself. All you can eat places are notorious for bland, poor quality tucker. This was OK. The vast array of choice is somewhat bewildering, I would imagine there... More

Quite central and good location for students. Cheap lunch time eats, but it isn't the greatest flavour food. There is a lot of choice.

As someone who is intolerant to gluten this place is a nightmare. The staff were unhelpful and very poorly trained when it came to allergens. The booklet that is meant to be able to help you choose dishes you can eat is useless. Lots of the dishes were not even available and most of my friends had finished eating before... More

We arrived when restaurant opened, the kitchen staff were not ready, all buffet stations had empty slots, and when the food finally arrived it was of a very poor standard. Greasy and bland. We chose this restaurant to satisfy everyone's taste buds, we left there feeling very disappointed.

I had a great meal today here. The food was great and the staff were friendly. The building, which looks like it's been recently refurbished, looks superb and quite posh! I will definitely be returning here soon! Also, it was quite good value, too! Cosmos is great because they do loads of different varities of foods including: Italian, English, Indian,... More
