    In general, food was spot on but service was not that great, I feel the more you eat the less service you get. I waited more than 20 mins to refill the drink glasses!!!

    Went to Cosmo reading this evening had booked and was seated promptly, the gentleman who came to our table to explain how the new social distancing worked ,we couldn’t understand what he was saying ,food was dry and there was a ton of empty trays on the serving plates that didn’t seem to be being replenished (our table was booked for 7.15pm) the selection of food was that of a lunch menu and was totally disappointing ,we had dinner plates and dessert plates left on our table dispite being seated near the till area where management just seem to be stood talking ,a number of staff members walked passed our table but never collected the dirty plates until I managed to get the attention of a member of staff ,the selection of desserts was poor and platters were empty ,a table of 4 next to us refused to pay their £80 bill as it was so awful ,when I asked for our bill a member of staff asked us how our meal was and I told him I was not happy and the reasons why , he said he hadn’t had any complaints this evening and that was all ,when I told him about the table next to us he muttered something and walked away , no way is a evening buffet at Cosmo worth £17 !! Totally disappointed and will be telling family and friends not to waste their money coming to your establishment

    Cosmo is great value for money, the food is always delicious and staff are very welcoming and friendly. It’s very family oriented which is great if you have children but it’s also great for any type of group setting or occasion.

    We've used cosmos since they first came to Reading and we've never had a bad meal or bad service. It's so popular amongst our family and friends that we've celebrated several birthdays with family and friends over the years and the staff always go above and beyond. Thankyou Cosmos keep up the good work.

    Terrible food, horrible experience. Will never visit again. Customer service was non existent and the food was cold and not a good variety for the price

    Everything was set out well so that people were socially distanced, the use of disposable gloves so that people could still serve themselves We actually liked the socially distanced tables as much easier for access when getting food. We had a lovely time celebrating a friends birthday.
