I initially checked this out with my son and was so impressed that I had to take my wife. We both enjoyed it. The food was delicious on both occasions and we'll be definitely going back and also recommending it to friends.

I love the upbeat feel of this place. We (4) all had the £20 a head option and there was probably too much food. Next time I would choose individual dishes. The pineapple dish was very spicy. Staff were great, maybe a bit more product knowledge would be helpful.

One of our favourite places to eat. Went for my partners birthday and it didn’t disappoint!
It’s getting a bit annoying that he won’t stop going on about the spicy mushrooms (which were amazing!)

A good experience overall, but the dishes were mixed. Some were excellent like the Egg Hopper, but others poor like the Devilled Pork which was very chewy and too sweet. Service was friendly and the seating uncomfortable.

We visited the Coconut Tree on the recommendation of a friend and the general reputation it seems to be getting. We agree with our friend! The Coconut Tree occupies a niche which nobody else has round here and makes it outstanding. Whilst it is not in the centre of town and may not pick up passing trade, I'm sure that people would be quite happy to make a dedicated journey. I assume that the location enables the Coconut Tree to offer excellent value food.

Highly recommended, having dietary requirements and being able to eat out can be a minefield but The Coconut Tree succeeds at making alternative cuisine accessable to all. Relaxed atmosphere, great cocktails and friendly staff.

We arrived and was taken to our table. The menu was sort of explained to us. We ordered and food arrived at random times throughout the evening. We ordered veg rolls and was only told at the end of the meal that they had run out. We had ordered at least 45 mins earlier and they were on the menu at that point. We were sat by the door but with a radiator that was blasting out heat which made it very hot for us. Also the light was so bad that we couldn't read the menu.

Love coming here, food is amazing and so are the drinks. Good service, just wish they had more low level seating as the chairs are very uncomfortable even with a cushion. Also when it’s full it’s extremely hot and the tables are so close together!

Great food as always, service a bit slower than normal but there was a large party in and didn’t seem to be as many service staff as usual but it didn’t spoil our visit. When there was a delay in one of our dishes we were given it free of charge so very happy!

Great little place, really authentic food. Nothing fancy just great flavours and interesting dishes. Noisy but in a good way, has a lovely vibe to it. Only reason not to get 5 stars is the cocktails were nothing special but will be back again for sure.

Very Disappointing after all the hype and also an absolute rip off, if the meats were high quality then fair enough on the price but the theme is extreme profit margins, minimum expenditure.
Very poor quality meats. Frozen chicken wings used for the curry and for devilled wings. Sat by the door which leads to the store and we saw the cook/waiter running the massive bag up of frozen wings and down. Devilled pork was doused in cheap sweet chilli sauce and tough as old boots- in fact a lot of the dishes used the same cheap tasting sauce.
Avoid the Red rice was extremely dry and clumped.
Vegetables were peppers and red onion galore, mushrooms were good with each dish.
My daughters free meal was the best dish.
Only eat here if your a vegan/ vegetarian.
Service was ok.

The food was amazing, we tried many different dishes, all of them were extremely tasty. The staff were excellent, they knew the food and drink and were able to help with recommendations. The cost of the food and drink was extremely reasonable, such good value for money. We will definately be back, thank-you for an wonderful evening!

Another lovely evening at the Coconut Tree, great vegan choices, tasty and innovative. Enjoyed it all, only slight downside is the rather 'snug' space at the high top tables. Haven't yet managed to get an ordinary table! There's a really lovely vibe, staff are wonderful and so helpful, an absolute pleasure to eat here.

I had not visited the Coconut Tree before, and my friend was visiting who is Vegan. I chose the restaurant because of the large range of vegan options. I eat meat and so we made a selection of vegan and meat based dishes all of which were superb. The staff were friendly, welcoming and experts about the menu and food.

Really delighted with the whole experience and reasonably priced too. My vegan friend was spoiled for choice and had a great evening.

Many thanks for a great experience.
