Great overall. Definitely tried a lot harder than most places to adhere to covid procedures. Food was great for lunch, flavourful, well presented. Staff were polite and friendly but we did often need to flag them down to order etc. I'd return and recommend for an outdoor lunch under the heaters.

The food took an extremely long time to be served, even though the restaurant was not packed, but the waitress did apologise several times. The sushi was really nice but other mains that were ordered for example the salmon and the chicken were very over priced, considering they were served on their own (no sides). I also think to charge £5.00 for a tiny bowl of boiled white rice is a bit over the top. The mock tails are also the same price as cocktails, which I thought very overpriced considering there’s no alcohol. Overall, I think the restaurant itself is very beautiful and staff are very attentive and friendly, but the food is over priced and not worth it.

Everything was amazing as usual but my partner was not happy that the floor manager there was pacing up and down on the phone while we were eating the whole time but over all waiters waitresses were amazing and customer service was just as amazing

They looked after us exceptionally, the manager and waitress was constantly making sure we were well. They also brought us out a desert as it was my girlfriend’s birthday! I cannot wait to return! The chilli squid and the prawn spring rolls were AMAZING!

Refused to be taken to our table reservation.

Unfortunately on arrival for our 9pm reservation, my partner and I arrived at 9:10pm, yet still within the grace period and were refused to be served. This was due to the last order cut off at 9:15pm.

Was quite upsetting as we travelled to central London for my birthday dinner. I understand restaurants need to follow the new government curfew law. But Cocochan should not advertise a 9pm slot, with a grace period and last order cut off so close together.

A good range of dishes which was in a great setting as road closed to traffic and could sit outside. Quite pricy for the type of food but that probably reflects the location.

Cocochan is absolutely lovely, the food, the service, the vibe is top! Really appreciated them taking my note on surprising my friend for a birthday with a candle on our desert, without me even having to remind them and on top of that putting it on the house! <3 So very kind. Will definitely be coming soon!

Awful food.
Chilli squid tastes like cardboard and super dry.
Gyoza bland and hard, as it was warmed up in a microwave..the food was awful to say the least and such a shame as ping pong was directly opposite.
The staff are very friendly, and it’s not a bad venue. The only complaint - poor quality of food, east enough to fix with the right chef.
