Reviewed 6 April 2018

We have been Three times over the last two years and the first time it was amazing. all the food you could imagine and very good service from the staff. I could see the guy in charge cutting around the large dining area like a Sergeant Major on a mission.
The second visit was a lot less impressive. the staff were not cleaning up the sevice areas as efficiently so there was a lot of mess putting us off.
The last time we went I feel that Cosmo is a victim of its own success we were waiting a long time for a table when we eventually got one it was cramped as they were maximising space for tables and the food did not seem to keep up with the demand. The experience has put us off all you can eat buffets for a while.

Amazing all you can eat restaurant that servers everything from roast dinners to sweet and sour chicken. It is reasonably priced and the food is amazing quality. It always seems to be packed and it can get quite busy. Also free food if you can prove its your birthday :)

We visited cosmo in February. We were seated after only a short wait and were shown to our table.
The service pretty much finished there, we weren't told how it operates or offered a drink for the entirety of our visit and were just left to figure it out ourselves.
The food itself was very cold and quite bland, the "live cooking stations" showed juicy burgers, steaks etc as being available but what they actually cook is very poor cuts of meat and the wait for these stations were very long and quite awkward just standing there with your plate.
The food on offer is mainly Chinese/Japanese/Indian, the other dishes such as pizza/salad/pasta etc were all very basic and stodgy. I tried a bit of most things and everything was cold. Most of the currys/noodles etc had a layer of grease on top from being left out and were tepid at best.
The restaurant itself is very cramped and walking between the tight tables can be very difficult.
Would not recommend or visit again.

Visited here late on a Thursday before good Friday. The place was busy. But luckily only a 20 minute wait. There was a lot of choice but as it was getting late not much was getting replaced. Had a good time but it’s not the best all you can eat I’ve been too. And as it’s a set price, I can’t see why you don’t pay before you eat and pay for drinks separately. I’d probably eat here again just earlier in the evening
