I've been here a few times and last night was just as good. The only thing I would say was that some of the food had been sitting there a while and was a little stale/hard - like the breads and things but there weren't many dishes like this, so overall it was good. Lots of good food, plenty of... More

This place is absolutely amazing. Different verities of food, sweet for kids, chocolate fountain for the women and has bigger tables for large bookings. Would definitely spend my last £20 there.

A big place with a lot of choice. A good selection of food, and quite tasty. Good mix of foods from all over the place, and not badly priced, hence the queue to get in

Is a good restaurant to go overall because of it offers Chinese, Malaysia, Indian, Japanese, Thailand and Western food too. Besides, highly recommended you to try their dessert. I didn't give them the best mark because of they only give you 1 1/2 hour to stay there, no dining experience. Everything, just speed yourself. Remember, you have to queue up... More

it's pure gluttony - unfortunayely our visit was probably spoilt by someone being sick all over the door (from top to bottom) when we arrived!! probably because they ate way too much!! you are on a two hour timer!! loud, can't talk....if you want to stuff your face, not talk to anyone and leave - ideal!!

More like a big staff canteen with children let free to run around. Staff disinterested. Menu not to my taste. Ok for families on a budget I suppose.

I enjoy cosmos food but sometimes buffets can be too overwhelming. There is too much selection. The price is a little too high so you will never eat your moneys worth. They give you a time limit,. The price is forever going up. The lobster comes in small quantities. I have mixed feelings about this place.

Been a couple of times and come away reasonably happy. Always plenty to eat (quantity and variety including kids stuff). OK so you have to serve yourself but at the price what do you expect. You get exactly what you pay for - good variety and quality and lots of it if you want. It can be noisy so don't... More

At first visit, the food array was spectacular, albeit rather 'canteen' style. Delicious nonetheless. Second visit, very disappointing! The place was full and food kept running out, so several people were left standing waiting for the next batch to arrive, which was slow. While the food quality was acceptable, as diners are allocated a specific amount of dining time, waiting... More

If you want a quality dining experience, Cosmo's will not provide it for you, however, if you wish to gorge and don't care about noise and ill managed children running all over the place and rude staff then go for it!! This is my second visit to this place. The first was for my 40th just over 2 years ago... More
