British restaurant chain COSMO has acquired a ‘huge’ Manchester location to host its newest venue.
COSMO, which has 20 other branches across the UK and is launching new sites in Leeds and Northampton, has invested more than £1m to refurbish and transform the Deansgate site.
The three floors, 25,000 sqft restaurant allows for 350 covers. The top floor will be available to hire out for private parties and groups, with four separate areas including Chinese, Japanese and Italian-themed rooms.
COSMO commerical director Kan Koo told Manchester Evening News: “This is a wonderful location in a city that has become famous as an eating-out destination, so we are extremely proud to open what we believe will be one of the most innovative world buffet restaurants anywhere in the UK.
“We promise five-star dining for a fraction of the price and a restaurant which is architecturally inspiring and the future face of our brand.”
The restaurant will serve approximately 160 dishes from around the world, including fresh sushi, a teppanyaki, Malaysian, Chinese, Italian and Vietnamese as well as an English carvery.
