The Oxford branch of the Cosmo all-you-can-eat buffet chain will reopen later this month. Confirmation of the Magdalen Street restaurant’s return comes more than two years after the venue was closed during the first coronavirus lockdown.
About 50 new jobs will be created, according to Cosmo, to build a team of about 80 people at the 10,200-square-foot, 250-person capacity site. A specific reopening date will be confirmed soon, the channel adds.
The restaurants are inspired by luxury hotels and offer a selection of international cuisines with more than 150 dishes offered 7 days a week. Diners can expect to sample an extensive Asian menu, as well as dishes from countries such as India, China and Thailand, as well as classic European dishes such as pizzas and traditional roasts .
