All you can eat world buffet restaurant in Derby

You can’t miss our Derby restaurant on London Road: it’s housed in a stunning art deco building, which first began life in 1934 as the Gaumont cinema. We’ve kept the original cinema seating but these days COSMO’s chefs are the ones putting on the entertainment with their live cooking skills. Come visit the 15,000 square foot restaurant for a slice of  all you can eat food theatre in one of Derby’s most precious historic buildings.

COSMO World Buffet Derby

At COSMO we have kept the original cinema seating but these days our team of highly trained chefs are the ones putting on the entertainment for our guests, showcasing their skills with our live cooking stations.

Watch them whip up everything from delicate pastries to roast gammon and turkey, or simmer dishes of aromatic curries with hot naan and succulent chutneys on the side for an authentic all you can eat buffet experience.

COSMO Derby offers food from around the world: Chinese, Indian, Italian, Japanese or Thai. Or if you fancy some traditional British food, we have you covered for that, too.

All you can eat Chinese buffet never tasted so good

The many regions in China make up an incredible mix of delicious dishes. The variety is in the many different ways of cooking: stir-fried, steamed, stewed. And the seasoning: herbs and spices make the food taste like heaven. There are so many different combinations of flavours.  

It’s impossible for a Chinese foodie to pick one dish — you want to taste them all! And that’s where we come in. With our Chinese buffet, you can try them all. We have beef dishes, chicken dishes, vegetarian dishes, seafood, tasty noodles and versatile rice — and they’re all absolutely delicious. 

Taste expertly cooked dishes from across the globe

COSMO Authentic World Kitchen is one of the best places to eat in Derby. If you’re a seafood lover, enjoy fresh king prawns, salmon and scallops grilled by expert teppanyaki chefs in true Japanese buffet style. Or enjoy a delicious steak, seasoned and cooked sizzling before your eyes on an iron griddle to seal in their flavour.

Perhaps the spicy aromas will lead you to our Thai, Chinese or Indian buffets. While the pizzas in our continental food buffet are authentically cooked in wood-fired ovens. 

The hardest thing will be choosing from this tempting array, but you can always head to our ‘tasting kitchen’, where we’ve created mini portions of all your favourite dishes. 

Finally, finish your meal with a scrumptious dessert. Bite-sized portions are also available here, but you might prefer to stick to an indulgent regular size. And don’t forget to refresh yourself with our large selection of hot, cold, alcoholic and soft drinks.
