    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.

    The team has done a brilliant job at making the buffet Covid-Proof. Staff explained how the new system works and did so in a friendly manner. Had a good time with my whole family, there were no cause for complaints!

    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.

    I used to love Cosmo’s we went tonight and everything was very poor. Your unable to social distance when attending the buffet, the one way system is very confusing. Whilst I appreciate there was supposedly slight differences in the food I found there was hardly any choice of food compared to how it used to be. The desserts section was extremely poor with tiny cakes practically the only choice of dessert. It was rather disappointing that they had stopped the bottomless drinks aswell which I’m unsure to why. If we needed to use disposable gloves when at the buffet this could have been done for drinks. Tables were suppose to be socially distanced apart which from what I could see the majority were. But our table for two was quite close to the neighbouring table and felt quite awkward as another couple was sat there too, we felt like we had very little space. I’m very disappointed as not much of this is stated on the website. COVID seems to have really changed this restaurant.

    Was very safe and food was great. Lots of safety guidelines in place and just right amount of other diners so not crowded. We were early for our booking and didnt have to wait .

    Some of the food, mainly carvery roast meat and veg, was cold. Less choice than before. Higher cost used to include fresh cooked meats and hot desserts which are now gone. No drink refills. Have now pay for extra drinks.

    Staff were moderately helpful. When I asked where something was the man pointed to it from across the kitchen as opposed to coming out and helping me apart from that staff were able to provide reasonable service. I think the samosas had too much potatoe filling not enough veg and crisp. Some of the noodles and rice dishes lacked in flavour. More work needs to be done to authenticate and flavour the food.

    I brought my 3 children for dinner. The staff were really lovely and we didn't have to wait long for our meals to come. I liked the new set up and everyone adhered to the rules. I liked they still had a lot of variety. We will definitely come again

    A real struggle for a simple, previously enjoyable experience....a real change, which even the children noticed as negative . Sorry Cosmo, not for me....
