Love the food so much more now it's changed company. What I don't like is people letting their bratty kids run around and eat straight out of the buffet trays, it's so unhygienic :/ Obviously not the restaurants fault but they shouldn't allow it either. Last time I was there I saw a fully... read more

for those groups of people who want variety of dishes. For a reasonable price you can sample dishes from all over the world (mainly the orient though). It;s one price for everything so we always come out bloated. It's always busy but there is loads of space for you to get your food.

Food was okay nothing special but the price was cheap. Decent hygiene and decent service. You wont be disappointed but you wont be over the moon either. Definitely worth trying if you like buffets but if you like your food to be very good when you go out then maybe not for you.

Cosmo is no longer Cosmo but JRC Global Buffet. It is an all you can eat buffet with good quality food available. The lunch offering is usually less available and is priced accordingly. When the place is in full operation there is a huge variety of food available. Japanese, Vietnamese, Thai, Indian, Italian, English and much in between. I like... More

This really isn't a very pleasant dining experience. Noisy, queuing and just about reaching hygiene levels. I for one, loath queuing for food, something I have always associated with Butlins. Most of the dishes simply do not get better being left on a hot plate for half an hour. Standard of cooking is adequate at the least. Standard of the... More

There are lots of different cuisines to choose from and you will find something you like and the kids will like as well. A great selection of dishes and desserts with bottomless soft drinks - what more can you ask for? Service was good, layout of restaurant good too with a nice atmosphere and kids most definitely welcome. Not suitable... More

Before entering the restaurant (if you can deem it that) you are faced by the horrific line of young 15-18 year olds dressed in dirty tracksuits, muddy trainers and 'snapbacks' ( a snapback is British slang for a hat for which is commonly used amongst the ghetto community) Once you are in restaurant you can see that the tables are...

Tried to book a while back for a meal with friends. Went online - all well and good, looked appealing. Entered details of booking. Eventually got a curt email reply to the effect - ’Not available’. Haven’t bothered again.

Went here a few weeks ago with friends after a long time, still very poor food. Not worth the money, expensive for the poor food etc, will never go there again.
