Good and fun resturant

One of the best asian buffets I've been to, excellent selection of different foods but not all are that great. The food is ok, but the whole experience is worth it. Try the Dim Sum, it's the best thing there. I enjoy Japanese and Chinese foods, so your experience will be different. Book more then 2... read more

I don't like buffets - but was attracted to the web site which promised sushi and sashimi and cooking stations and Teppanyaki etc. Unfortunately this was not available at lunchtime, except for one piece of vegetarian sushi. To see the sashimi being sliced up and then being told it was only for dinner was disappointing. Their terms and conditions say... More

The food at Cosmo is really good; is it 5 star French cuisine, no, obviously not. It's around £11 after 5pm weekdays and you can eat until you explode, if you wish. You get a vast selection of meats and sea foods, curries, salads, sushi, pastas, deserts etc etc. etc. The place is very clean, it has a great atmosphere... More

Went to Cosmo for lunch wasn't sure what to expect as I had heard mixed reviews, I must say my Mum & I really enjoyed it. There was lots to choose from including Indian, Chinese, Italian & more. The amount of selection was unreal. The only thing that disappointed me were the deserts, there wasn't really anything other that fruit... More

I was at this restaurant on Saturday evening as a guest at a birthday meal. When we arrived there was a queue outside which I took to be a good sign. Luckily enough our table was booked so we didn't have to wait. The meal is self service but supposedly waiter service for drinks & coffee. .After waiting for a... More

My third visit, first at lunch time. Disappointing that the only foods I really enjoy at this restaurant weren't available during lunchtime. Very poor availability at Italian section (almost empty pasta dishes and not topped up). Poor sushi selection. Fresh beef cooked was all fat and couldn't be eaten. I never like the quality of meat used in Chinese or... More

On a recent trip to Belfast we happened upon the town shopping mall looking for places to eat. Amongst the array of chain fare we spotted Cosmo and decided to feed our hungry bellies. We have a Cosmo in Bristol (where we live) and personally I've never rated it that much back home. That being said this one in Belfast... More

Lots of choice, however: poor quality, greasy food, dirty toilets with broken taps, staff tell you to keep your cutlery for each course. Nothing you can't get in Iceland. 2 rolls of sushi on offer, bad layout. Feel sick thinking about it :-( don't go!
