Unbelievable experience at Cocochan.. It's an absolute must place to eat if you like pan Asian food...Each of the dishes we tried just got better and better, culminating in the Unagi Dragon which is exquisite and its a have to have dish... Cocochan is going on my list of must visit restaurants... 3 minutes walk from Bond Street station so really easy to get to... The staff are incredibly friendly and welcoming... Sash is a legend.. I really can't recommend Cocochan enough... Try it... You won't be disappointed

Good buzz around the area. Reasonably priced for the quality of the food and decent size portions. Service was a little slow and had to ask for our drinks a few times. Sushi etc slower to come out so if you’re in a rush maybe ask the estimated time. Ok for us as we sat for a few hours to catch up. Cooked small plates came out very quick. Staff were pleasant and polite when they came over. We didn’t notice the music being too loud like other reviews so perhaps louder inside, we were half in and half out and ambience was great.

The food was delicious, not expensive and the waitresses were lovely. We got the lunch bento box, however the portion was small and we were all still hungry after. Also I had to wait quite a while to get one of the waitresses’s attention to get some more water.

The food is always of an excellent quality and the service is always good to outstanding.
However the only downside is that the music is way too loud, which gives it more of a club atmosphere. When you are sitting down to dinner to catch up with friends you do not want to be shouting across the table. I am a regular at Cocochan's and always introduce my friends, who always go back. I will now have to consider whether this is the place to catch up with friends on a Friday evening in future. I can't see how anyone would think that loud music and dinning makes a good combination

The restaurant was too noisy with loud music thumping that we had to shout across the table to have a conversation. Manager was ignorant and did not agree to turn the music down instead he said we had the same complaint last week but we cannot do anything. Starters were decent and value for money. Don’t bother ordering any mains - Thai Green curry tasted and looked like lump of custard - highly disappointing!! I am being generous by giving 2 stars in each criteria. Please don’t waste your money here - not the most price competitive either!!!

Really nice staff, very welcoming and attentive. Food excellent as always, ambience was lively - we asked for the extremely loud indoor music to be turned down so we could talk over dinner but we’re told they couldn’t/wouldn’t do that. Only a tiny blemish on an otherwise excellent dinner.

The service was EXCEPTIONAL thanks to Marco, Noemi and Fabio! They really made our experience an amazing one, they were always ready to serve us and checking to see if everything was ok. The overall ambience was so lovely and everyone was in great spirits. The food was also delicious, I would highly recommend the prawn tempura and the smoked salmon sushi roll! Will definitely be coming back!

As usual the food at Cocochan was very good. One slight disappointment was that the online menu wasn’t the same as the actual menu. We also had to ask for the music to be turned down as we had trouble having a conversation. I’d still recommend this place though. A lovely gem of a restaurant.

The food was excellent and tasty however for the price you pay there is hardly any vegetables in the dishes and mostly onions! There were just enough prawns/beef for the 3 of us and we ordered 3 main dishes.

We arrived early but they were kind enough to seat us anyway. The food was very fast from ordering to the table… so fast that we were still eating our starters when the mains arrived! We asked then to bring it back later as we hadn’t finished our starters and as a result a couple of the mains were not very hot! They did apologize and offered us a round a cocktails…. The service was very good.
Will go back, would like to go for lunch and try their bento boxes!

Lovely food, great vibes. The service was just very slow, it was a busy evening but it took half an hour to flag someone down to order! However I would definitely go back again for the food and the ambience, and definitely recommend the black miso cod and the chilli squid.
