“Lovely food, so much choice!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 13, 2013

Have been to Cosmo at least 3 times now and am never let down! The choice is amazing and I was particularly impressed with the level of vegetarian options. The food is always hot and of good quality. The show cooking is brilliant and the array of desserts makes my mouth water as soon as I walk into the building. The price is very reasonable considering it is all you can eat.

“Wonderful birthday celebration”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 12, 2013

We celebrated my granddaughter's 8th birthday at Cosmo and the whole experience was a delight from the moment we arrived when we were made very welcome.

We arrived just as the restaurant opened at 5:30 pm and, consequently, we had first choice of the many varied dishes on offer. It was wonderful to see the brilliant presentation untouched by other diners.

The whole meal was fabulous and we were taken by the wide variety of tasty dishes on offer.

The staff were very courteous and helpful - even down to providing matches so that we could light the birthday cake!

All in all - a truly great evening out.

“Too much choice”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2013

I usually avoid places that offer so much choice like the plague. It sends alarm bells ringing because you don't know how long the food sits for and the fresh food is piled on top of the older stuff. It's kind of like going on a cruise (my idea of hell) with out the benefits i.e. the ship and the ocean. To be fair though it wasn't that bad. The service was ok and some of the Chinese dishes were pretty good. The highlight for me was the dim sum and the crispy lamb. I probably wouldn't choose to go back but because buffets are not my thing so credit where credit is due. It was very inexpensive also so it certainly serves a purpose.

“WOW! £6.99 all you can eat lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2013 via mobile

Just passing and decided on spur of the moment to pop in after a meeting. Ive been to a Jimmy Spices but this a far superior. Fab atmosphere, fab staff and fab food, so much variety. Can't believe we had a three course lunch for £6.99 per head, all you can eat buffet! I was very impressed. If i had too make one negative comment it would be the onion bajhis - I love them, but these were yellow mush! Will definately become a favorite haunt when in Clifton for meetings :)

“£15 ALL YOU CAN EAT AND TOP QUALITY IT IS TOO”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2013

for £15 all you can this was the best ive been to by a long long way.
all the foods were superbly cooked and tasted great.
mostly pan asian but excellent all the same.
if your looking for a match between cosmo and za za bazzar
cosmo wins on the quality alone
good atmosphere and you dont see the waitress hovering to clean ur plates away like za za's or there piled up in za za's
you go up for youre next taste sensation and your table is cleared by the time you get back
there not in a great hurry to get you out for the next sitting unlike za za's
great nights feast for all.
very busy place phone in advance so you dont miss out.
