Cosmo World Buffet (St Enoch Centre, Glasgow) 2022 : Review

Todays Visit

The guys at Cosmo invited me to come to their new location situated in the St Enoch Centre in Glasgow city centre. Its situated in the perfect location to grab a meal then head up to the Vue cinema for a wee movie night.

I have been to their Silverburn Shopping Centre one and it really did change my mind on buffets, as prior to my visit there I really didn’t like buffets as the food was always bland and not really good.

I was looking forward to this visit and set a date and time.

How It Looks

When walking in I was extremely impressed at how lovely and fancy this place was!

The décor was amazing and really gave off that warm, relaxing and luxurious feeling.

Tonight was very busy, but I managed to take photos where nobody was featured in them, as I don’t like taking pics of others when they are eating.

They also had a robot that took dirty dishes back to a cleaning area, this was very cool and I really liked this idea.

The Food

As you would expect from a world buffet there should be choices from most places around the world.

There were Indian, Chinese, Italian options, etc., and there was a good choice from each section.

I went for a mixed starter, and then Indian main.

The starters I chose were very nice, and I would have them again. The main was much better and I tried the butter chicken and also the sweet and sour chicken.

Both of these dishes had really nice flavour, and I was very impressed with the sweet and sour chicken as it wasn’t too vinegary which I have tasted at other buffets and even restaurants.

I even tried the sushi and again just like everything else tonight it was very fresh and tasty!.

Dessert Time!

Dessert Time! yip there is always room for dessert and I wanted to check out most of what they had on offer at tonight’s visit.

I grabbed a selection and sat down and tasted everything I picked.

My favourite was the Tiramisu but everything I choose hit my sweet tooth perfectly!

Visit Overall

I really enjoyed my visit tonight, I had a great time and really enjoyed all the food that I chose.

The food was just as good as the other branch at Silverburn, packed with flavour, fresh and very tasty!

This is a perfect spot to take a family or a date before going to see a film or after a big shop or both.

Have you been here since its opened? let me know what you thought.

Chillies of Carnoustie (Carnoustie) 2022: Review

Todays Visit

The Food

Normally I go for a Korma but I have had a few Biriyani’s recently and thought lets see how it is here.

Chicken Biriyani £13.95
All biryanis are cooked with basmati rice, garnished with Chilles spices. Served with raita

On arrival this looked nice, though the salad decoration was for me anyway not really needed, as its a nice visual dish to start with.

I took a bite with and without the Raita.

Without the raita it was nice, but just ok. With the raita it did help with the flavour.

The chicken was tender, and had a nice flavour.

Overall it was nice, but I have had better…..sorry guys.

Swadish Indian Restaurant (Merchant City, Glasgow) 2021 : Review

V: 31st December 2021


The Visit :

It was a very last-minute decision as my parents wanted to go out for dinner and they didn’t book anywhere, so I messaged Swadish and was lucky they had a table free.

Starter

Hot Cauliflower Wings (Vegan) £6.50
Crispy Cauliflower with Tandoori Spices, Lime and Chilli Sauce, Coriander Chutney

I am not normally a Cauliflower fan, it’s probably one of the last things I would order but a friend was here the night before and had this and said it was really good…so I ordered it.

I didn’t actually look at the small print and tried a good amount of the darker sauce and WOW it blew my head off….so once that calmed down I dug right in.

These were really nice, I was very surprised (remember I am not a cauliflower person) and I enjoyed them very much. They had a lovely flavour and a really nice crisp to them.

My Rating:

Main

Salmon Tikka £10
Roasted Salmon marinated with Lime, Paprika, Tandoori spices, Lime Leaf Sauce, Mint and Coriander Chutney, Beetroot Dressing. and a hint of sweetness. Onions and coconut

I wanted to try something different tonight, and this cause my eye.

On arrival, the presentation was really good and defiantly Instagramable!

Visually looked really good, and it also smelled really good….so it was time to dig in.

Wow, this was very tender, no bones and packed with a lovely flavour. I could have easily had another plate of this that’s how good it was.

Warm Gulab Jamun £6.00
Sweet spongy balls made of milk, topped with berry compote

Woohoo, I had room to have this, and Gulab Jamun is one of my favourite Indian sweets more so warm.

It was yummy, soft, sweet and so so good!!!

This is another dish I could have easily had more of.

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Overall:

It was nice to be back at Swadish, and it was a love New Years eve meal.

As always the food, presentation and flavours are 10/10 and we all had a fantastic meal.

If you have never visited here, I highly recommend you do!!!
