have been to this taverna 3 times now took my daughter for the 1st time last night, she absolutely loved it, the food is fantastic the service even better nothing is too much trouble, and even when we asked for some hummus to take home ( this is delicious) it was accompanied with some warm pitta . very reasonably priced very friendly and relaxed atmosphere, this may have just knocked curry mile of the top of our favourites list.
Easily our favourite haunt and one we have been visiting for over 15 years. The food doesn't excite really but offers comfort. It is authentic without any pretension. Don't expect plush decor, just enjoy the genuine hospitality and the corny old jokes of the waiters.

Looks really can be deceiving. As others have said, the last place you expect to find high quality authentic Greek cuisine is Fallowfield, and the exterior of this small family restaurant gives no major hints as to the delights that reside within. (more…)
First time I went to kosmos and I must say, food was super and service was good as well. We will go back again.
Fabulous food & great service combine to make this as authentic a Greek meal without actually being in Greece although the prices are higher than I would expect to pay in Euros. The prices are totally justified by the quality of the food and the fact that the extensive menu deviates little from the Greek/Cypriot cuisine with even only the odd concession on the wines. Definitely will return & I can understand why it has been trading so long from the same location.
Went to Kosmos Sunday the 22nd of May and as usual the food was delicious. Service was excellent and very professional.
Apparently this is a Manchester institution, serving authentic Greek food from this site for 30 years (estimate by my drunk friend last night - may not be 100% accurate). Despite passing this place on my school bus for 5 years (more…)
Used a living social voucher here, food was very good, lots to choose from & authentic. Service from older guy was efficient, but we can't say pleasant or with a smile, younger guy waiter was very pleasant. Should have had the 1 drink included with the voucher but the older guy said it wasn't so we had to pay, which was annoying as when I double checked once home it should have been.
The best Greek food in Manchester and out of Greece and Cyprus
Came here with about ten others for a friend's birthday. Food was incredible! We had aubergine in batter, halloumi in sesame seeds with honey, and slow roasted lamb. The service was really lovely as well. Would definitely come again. Thank you for such a great evening! Helen D Visited January 2017
This is the second time that me and my girlfriend have dined in this restaurant. This time we used a Groupon voucher. We were reasonably hungry and ordered two starters (deep fried halloumi and feta), then I had the lamb shank (more…)
Great meal for my boyfriend's 25th birthday. We were treated like royalty with excellent service and wonderful food! Highly recommend to anyone. Hannah J Visited January 2017
I have been on a couple of occasions, always as part of a group on a quieter evening. The staff coped OK, to be fair very few places enjoy serving a reasonable sized group. We always opt for a eze - and always forget the kebabs and moussaka that come out at the end. Why? because usually the food is plentiful & we are all stuffed long before. Food is tasty, reasonably authentic & we usually have a great time - I would recommend it.
Fab food and service. Cant wait to revisit.
My friend and I had a delicious meal at Kosmos last week. I'd just booked a holiday to Skiathos so had to go out for a Greek meal! I'd seen a previous review mentioning the Drunken chicken, so thought I'd give it a try. It was absolutely delicious. I can highly recommend Kosmos. The food was great and the staff were lovely and friendly. Alison S Visited January 2017
Rule 1. Never judge a book by its cover. The surroundings may not be as upmarket as other town centre restaurants, but to be honest when your getting food as good as this it really doesn't matter. Took a gamble and visited as a family birthday/Christmas (more…)
Another great odyssey into Hellenic cuisine as I work my way though their impressive a la carte. I guess I come here often enough for it to feel like a second home, the welcome certainly makes it seem so. (more…)
This place just keeps on giving. I haven't yet worked my way through the extensive mainland and islands menu but I've not had a disappointment yet. I'm often tempted to go for the last dish I had because I know it was great but the owner tries to steer me on to (more…)
Love Greece and love Greek food and this restaurant serves the best authentic Greek food this side of Athens.
Every time I come here I love it! The staff go out of their way to make it a lovely experience and I've never had a bad dish. Ash P Visited January 2017
The reason that Kosmos excels so well is that there are so few places in Manchester that seem to do Greek food, let alone do it well. It's a good job then that Kosmos manages both, otherwise we'd all be put (more…)
Visited Kosmos with several friends for an evening meal, the choice of food was amazing, and when it was served it did not disappoint in any way, the service was excellent throughout the meal. My only negatives would be the coffee was poor, restaurant seats very hard and only toilets are downstairs. Hope to return soon, thank you to all the staff. alaninmanchester Visited December 2016
Best Greek in Manchester!
Great daily run restaurant. Had a Meze here with family. Excellent food, really tasty. Super service. Nothing at all to fault. MoleCatcher J Visited January 2017
I highly recommend this hidden gem. Absolutely delicious food and plenty of it. Great value for money. The staff were lovely. Will be back. crr5
The food in Kosmos Taverna is just fantastic! Authentic Greek style food that comes in loads of varieties will leave you full and wanting for more at the same times. When I ask for a mint tea, most of the times I get also a fresh mint in addition to a teabag. (more…)
Hay mummy!! This is stefanos! Thought i would add my own little recommendation! i love greek food!! and i love you! love your baby boy stefanos xx
Fantastic. The best Greek Taverna! We are from Nottingham and we will be returning to Manchester soon. And when we do, KOSMOS is on our meal list. BEAUTIFUL soup and vegetables and lovely wheat pilaf. Good strong metaxa 5 star is a must! I thoroughly recommend! We had the early doors menu. Try it!
A lovely old traditional Greek style Mediterranean restaurant with a delicious menu. Though somewhat pricey my food was excellent and copious enough that I was at bursting point after my main meal.
Got stuck in traffic 3 weeks ago in Central Manchester, so I decided to do a 'De tour' through Fallowfield & show my teenage daughter Mum's old stomping ground 25yrs ago...AND there is was THE KOSMOZ...So did a nifty bit of parking right outside... It was like stepping back 25ys. It was fabulous, food, service & atmosphere just as I had remembered, so booked again, the trip from Warrington to Fallowfield is worth it... Thanks for another fab night last Friday... We took friends who loved it too... Thanks to all.. xx
Hey Loulla and boys. .I'm declaring a bias comment here, being your favourite brother in law and uncle in law. I have taken many friends to the Kosmos over the years and everyone without fail enjoyed it.
We had some family up from North Wales and took them to the Kosmos.The drunken chicken and roast potatoes from the oven were brilliant.It just reminded us of our holiday in Skiathos. Graham and Shirley Graham B
Went with a party of 14 for my mates birthday. Took advantage of a groupon offer. Food was top notch, service was really good, proper friendly. Would deffo go again! Danny I Visited January 2017
A lovely little Greek taverna. We had the meat meze which was delicious and just enough for us. Main meals looked lovely - will maybe try one of those next time
