The guys over at Cosmo sent me an invite to come and have a meal at their Silverburn Restaurant, and I accepted and set a date.

To be honest I have never heard of a restaurant called Cosmo at Silverburn, so I had to do some research.

If you know Silverburn, Cosmo is situated at the Cinema end but just outside…this explains why I have never seen it, as normally the cinema is as far as I usually go.

Looking Around

On entering Cosmo is very very nice inside, it has a very modern, clean and nice design/look to it so I was very impressed as most buffets I have been to are just so so in style.

I took a walk around all the areas to start with, and could see they catered for many tastes and styles and the food smells were really good.

The Food…

I had to let my stomach and eyes do the talking tonight, and I had to try a lot of food so I was lucky I was very hungry.

Starter

So I selected different items so I could see how most of the starters tasted, yup there was lots more to try but I didn’t want to fill myself up and not be able to eat my main and sweets.

Firstly yup as you can see my presentation sucks, but hey its a buffet and its my plate so I didn’t mind…

I tried everything on this plate and can honestly say, it was very good, everything well cooked and full of flavour.

Main Course

So now it was on to the mains…

I tried different rices, curries and even sweet n sour chicken.

Just like my starters this was really nice and very well cooked, if I was being very fussy the Sweet n Sour Chicken which is a big fav had a slight vinegar hint to it which it really shouldn’t….so I wouldn’t have this again due to that but apart from that everything else was really good.

Presentation : n/a
Portion Size : n/a
Flavour : 4
Value for Money : n/a

Desert

I was getting very full at this point, but there is always space for some sweets…

There was many to choose from so I opted for the above, and mmmm I loved every mouth-full.

The one part I didn’t try was the chocolate fountain, but I will try that on my next visit.

Overall

Firstly a big thanks to the guys at Cosmo, for tonights invite and the meal. Secondly as always my review above is 100% my own thoughts, and has not be influenced just because I was invited.

Tonight I learned of a very nice buffet, that if I hadn’t had the invite I would never have known was there.

For me from start to end I enjoyed all the food, and found it very fresh and full of flavour which is hard to find at most buffets as they tend to loose the flavour by sitting out for ages.

Value for money I cant comment on that as tonight was free for me, but quality of food was very good and I will go back when I feel like a buffet when I visit Silverburn.

I have not been to Silverburn in a good few years, and at that point there wasn’t a lot of choice when it came to food options.

Today one stood out from the rest and its was Thaikun.

I had never heard of here before so I was looking forward to giving it a shot, as I do like my Thai food.

 

The Food :

Pangag Curry (Chicken) £10.50 with Coconut Rice £1 (extra upgrade)
A creamy red curry sauce with palm sugar and basil

I just took a chance with this as I had never heard of it before, and hoped it wasn’t going to be too spicy for me.

On arrival it was presented nicely, I liked the bowl the curry came in.

This was so good!!! it wasn’t too spicy, the curry was nice and a little sweet and combined with the Coconut Rice a nice sweet curry.

I would have this again!!!! my only issue was the portion size maybe a little too small for me but hey that leaves room for dessert.

Portion Size : 5
Flavour : 5
Presentation : 5
Value for money : 4

 

Mango Sticky Rice £5.25
A Thai classic

I didn’t really know what to have for dessert as there were 3 options I could have selected.

I opted for this since it said it was a Thai classic and hoped it would be nice.

I was a little disappointed with this, don’t get me wrong it was nice but not much flavour for me. I got bored with the taste half way through and left it.

You might like this so do try it, but for me a little bland on the flavour.

Portion Size : 5
Flavour : 3
Presentation : 5
Value for money : 3.5

Overall :

Overall it was a mixed visit, I loved my main course but the dessert didn’t do it for me.

Next visit I will try some other dishes, and another dessert.

Both staff and service was good tonight, and I learned that this is the sister company of Chaophraya which is another one of my favs for Thai.
