Pan-Asian and Mediterranean-style restaurant Cosmo has opened in Glasgow's Silverburn shopping centre, after the project was first announced in February this year.
The 8,800 sq ft, £1.5m site has 230 seats, a robata grill, and a Japanese teppanyaki bar. There is also a tasting kitchen, where chefs will regularly serve new dishes, and six live cooking stations.
It is the third Cosmo site to have opened in 2014, and the third in Scotland, after Aberdeen and Edinburgh.
A launch party marked the opening, and offered customers a huge sponge cake depicting the city of Glasgow, an international selection of dishes, rickshaw rides, and the opening ribbon cut by MSP for Glasgow Pollok, Johann Lamont.
The restaurant serves the group's usual menu via a range of cooking methods, including teppanyaki, wood-fired oven and tandoor, plus an international buffet influenced by India, Thailand, Japan and continental Europe.
James Brion, creative director for Cosmo, said: "We are very happy to have opened our newest restaurant at Silverburn and we wanted to do something special to mark the occasion. This is our third restaurant in Scotland and the response from the Glasgow public has so far been overwhelming, so we are already feeling very much at home."
Cosmo also runs 15 restaurants across the UK, including in Bristol, Derby, York, Swansea, Sheffield, and Romford. It has also announced plans to open a site in Nottingham in 2015.
The Glasgow site joins the shopping centre's other restaurants, including Carluccio's, Chimichanga, Frankie & Benny's, La Tasca, the Handmade Burger Co, Nando's, Prezzo, Zizzi and PizzaExpress, as part of the £20m leisure centre expansion.
