First time visit and booked a table for two at 7.30 and the large restaurant was already quite full, unexpected for a Wednesday evening. Wine is very reasonable and because it is buffet there is no waiting to be served. The 1 hour 45 minutes allowed for the table is plenty, good luck if you feel you can eat more... More

I majored on the chinese food, but there is an excellent choice of Indian, Thai, Mexican, and Italian - probably more but I cannot remember. Good for large groups and you can all sit together. This is a huge restaurant, and it gets crowded, so best to book.

A lot of things to eat but you cannot go there if you only want to have a drink. That's a shame! Nice buffet though!

We visited for the first time for lunch just prior to Christmas 2014, it was very busy with a really lively atmosphere, a great treat, Then we were given vouchers to use in January, which we did and took more friends who thoroughly enjoyed themselves too. Job well done, congratulations.

Went for my sons 16th last week on a sunday lunchtime and it was packed as usual but we had already booked a table. Greeted by friendly staff and then ordered our drinks. All the kids went off (5 of them ) to search for their favourite food then me and my wife went and got ours. Delicious food once... More

Good choice of food - especially nice if you have it cooked fresh in front of you! Located just off The Triangle in Clifton, so handy for shops and the University.

This was a pleasant visit in my first week of uni realising i had to feed myself. The food was all topped up and ready to eat. They had enough chefs on hand to whip up the sushi, pasta or meats available without you having to wait. The drinks were through table service which withdrew a long wait at the... More

We decided to visit Cosmo as there is a choice of food from all over the world the children thought it was great to go up to each food station and choose something different. Food is good but not excellent and the service is good.
