Our first time at Cocochan and based on this experience we will definitely be going again. Really enjoyed the food. Service appeared a little stretched so the restaurant could have been a server down on numbers but otherwise absolutely no complaints. A little pricey but remember the location.

Shocking service, awful experience will not visit again. Staff not attentive at all and oblivious to customers. Food was very nice just a shame about service. Booked for a special occasion and no comp dessert wss offered. Even after I had mentioned it was my bf birthday, the waitress told me I had to order a dessert for them to personal. In my experience for a birthday I have never experienced such lack of care!

Cocochan is does lovely sushi and food but the service could be better and it’s slightly overpriced (particularly the wine list).

Overall decent restaurant in a great location.

Terrible service which was a shame as the food was really excellent. We were a table of five that had about 7 different waitresses/waiters all evening- total service chaos. They took too long serving drinks, couldn’t agree/advise on which dishes contained or didn’t contain wheat (one celiac in our party) and started clearing glasses thinking we’d finished our wine when there was still half a bottle left. I had to go and find it for them!
Wouldn’t return unless there’s more focus on front of house training. Really let’s place down.

Could be better organised with the service especially for large groups. Meals should be coordinated and delivered together.
Also better communication on the menu, we were served a thai green curry with no rice and no information that this was excluded, would have been helpful if we were informed of this before being served.

It was absolute chaos! We had a reservation for 3 for 7pm, the restaurant was really busy and they just couldn’t cope.
Food was bought up from the kitchen, given to the wrong tables, taken away, bought back - no one seemed to know what was going on.
The food itself was pretty good, I’d been craving prawn tempura and it didn’t disappoint but the food didn’t arrive in the same time zone so we couldn’t enjoy eating together.

Food was great however the service was extremely slow. My friends & I had to wait for 25 minutes for our drinks and asked for them twice.
When we asked for desert menu it took 15 minutes to bring it over, I mean how long does it really take to pick up a menu and bring it over? By the time we received the desert menu after asking again for a 2nd time we were tired and ready to go.
Shame about the service as the food was pretty good.

Love this place. The staff are warm and friendly. Sash who attended to us was brilliant. He is so knowledgable and everything he recommended was deliciously Devine. It is a little pricey but you can't fault the food and experience .

I usually love Cocochan. I was quite pleased I ended up not going and it was just my husband and his friend, both fasting and the food came late. No apology, the food also wasn’t up to it’s usual standard and apparently it was super noisy in there. Very sad considering how much we love this place usually.

HUGELY disappointing after a day of no food!

We wanted Asian and read good reviews. However, this was highly disappointing. The food was subpar at best and our service was absolutely terrible. The chili chicken dish was undercooked. When we told our waiter about an allergy, he acted as if he didn’t work there and couldn’t accurately suggest dishes to accompany said allergy. I mean even getting water was difficult. It is a shame we spent one of our only evenings in London in this place and I suggest the service has a come to Jesus moment if they want to stay in business.

Had lunch a few days earlier and was very impressed so
decided to come over for Dinner !
Very disappointed! The lobster noodle was over cooked greasy and just not on !
The piece size of Black cod was much smaller compared to what we had for lunch earlier and over cooked!
The jungle curry was bland and fish in the same was dry , cut wrong and over cooked !
Regret this will not do and this cooking quality on a Monday night when restaurant was empty is not acceptable.

Good food !
Black cod was excellent !
The starters , dim sum and small eats were great .
Green curry could be improved, was a little too thick and. bland
The rib eye was just ok ! Cut wrongly in thin strips , even medium was dry .
Getting attention for service was a issue

Family lunch... Great menu and especially good sushi duck and beef black bean sauce and dim sum . Really good pan American spread so something for everyone.
Only slightly negative point was the tiny individual teapots for jasmine tea. If you like to drink volume tea on these occasions which we do then a big communal pot on the table is the way to go. Otherwise this was spot on and we will be back.

Excellent meal and service at Cocochan. Really enjoyed the subtle floral theme. I have noticed portions have gone smaller as I have been there before but still a nice good restaurant. Choices are great, I loved the popcorn ice cream dessert with chocolate cake.
