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

Good for a large gathering of people who want to eat different things. Cosmo has the feel of a canteen, but with slightly better decor. It feels a bit like a hotel restaurant. Very busy. Food is edible but nothing special, but to be expected for 15.99 a person ! Would not go as a couple, far too busy, noisy... More

the buffet food was all right, fairly good. however i didn't like the way the chef cooked my scallops, steak and lobster. they say you can get some lobster, you order and they give you some kind of lobster bones you have to break to eat, very fiddling job. scallops the guy(chef) cooked them didnt season them, and crush them...

I went here with a group of mates and although it seemed a bit pricey per head when we got inside and saw the quality and quantity of food on offer that soon changed to Value For Money. Do NOT go if you are not hungry as you are encouraged to try lots and there is no limit to how... More
