This place was buzzing on a Saturday lunchtime. Perhaps I should say there seemed to be swarms of kids. Other restaurants I passed were barely ticking over. I suppose a lot of people were there because you can eat as much as you want at a fairly low price. Fair enough if you're not very discriminating and are aiming for... More

We visited for a friends birthday in May & food was good, but nearing towards the end we asked for the billl & we still had drinks & basically we were told to leave as they needed the table. We all thought this was not good & maybe you should rethink your booking system

I have been to many all you can eat restaurants around UK but this has been the cleanest so far. As regards variety and quality, very satisfying. Also very good desserts. Highly recommended.

Could not fault the food. Great variety, good quality and freshly prepared. But the staff really let it down, especially the lady in the bar. No smile, please or thank you. Snatched the money from not only my hand, but the others with me, then practically threw the change at us!!. When we asked for some more ice for one... More

We have eaten at Cosmos many times and always in large groups with children. Last time there was 21 of us. We have never had a bad experience. We stick with Chinese food and all like the variety. Very fresh, always cooked well and beautifully clean. If you want to sit somewhere quieter just pre book the window seating, they... More

We chose Cosmo based on our previous expierence here. Unfortunately, they ran out of Jasmine tea, what I wanted to order. Also food choice options have became shorter in last half a year. Biggest compliments to our waitress Joanna - you were very helpful, smiley and you made our evening much better!

First time here, food was fairly good quality, food stations clean and not over crowded although the restaurant was busy on a saturday night. Seating on long tables and the general noise made conversation extremely difficult (no good for an intimate meal). It would appear that a freezer had broken down so all the ice cream was running away. Kids... More

As the title says, not normally my thing at all but I have to say it was very good. Plenty of choice and of good quality. We went at 1830 on a Friday so not surprisingly by the time left at 2000 it was getting very busy. Definitely not the place to go for a romantic intimate meal but great... More

Went here for the first time in ages tonight and if anything it has got better. I live for dim sum and sushi so just stayed on the starters, plus a plate Singapore noodles. Forget the puddings in my humble opinion and enjoy what these people can do with savoury foods. All that two beers and the meal for twenty... More
