My colleague organised this venue for our Christmas Party. Have to say that I was very pleasantly surprised by the range of options, from Indian to Sushi, freshly cooked fish, plenty of choice for veggies and people with food intolerances. These were all clearly explained next to each food so happy days! Perhaps could have been a few more salad options as a a personal preference...

Will definitely return for a similar group event. Seemed very busy so booking essential.

As an aside, the only complaint I have for places like this is the sheer greed displayed by some people who like plates so high and return for endless courses. Just gluttony! Rant over...

Wide range of dishes from different countries and types so perfect for our family who all like different food and can never agree on where to eat. We arrived at 2.30 and they shut and change over the food at 4pm for evening. Even so starters and main meals fresh and plentiful. The desert options- were more limited at that time but plenty of gateau and ice cream, fruit salads. Busy and can be a bit noisy. Ideal for when shopping or day out in town with family of fussy eaters

Been here for the 2nd time with a large group and it's an easy option to cater for numerous dietary needs. Food is good for what you pay and you'll never leave hungry but rather the opposite.

Visited for dinner. Was a large queue (1hr 45m wait) but we had pre-booked and had no wait whatsoever. Plenty of choice : Chinese, Indian, Italian etc. All very tasty. Only complaint was no Christmas dinner. had Turkey + cranberry sauce but no roast potatoes, chipolatas, Brussel sprouts et al. Disappointed. £16.95 pp and £2.99 for unlimited soft drinks. Good atmosphere but can be a bit crowded. Desserts uninspirational. York Cosmo is better,

Been to Cosmos' a few times and it’s one of the best continental buffets I've been to. There are lots of different types of food to choose from and the food always tastes lovely and fresh. It is great value for money and the staff are always friendly and helpful. It’s always extremely busy so if you haven’t booked a table expect a 20-30 minute wait especially on weekends. If you want to reserve a table definitely do it a month in advance as you will struggle to get a reservation if you leave it any later. Apart from that I would highly recommend and I will definitely be returning.
