The Coconut Tree
Food was excellent. Service was great. Only feedback i would give is that open table says you can park at the church, which you can’t! But the restaurant was brilliant
Our table, for a party of six, was far too small. We were squashed and uncomfortable and eating was difficult. I had to put the bottle of wine on the floor by my feet. There wasn't enough room for the dishes. Noise level was fine for a while but then a large, rowdy group made it impossible to have a conversation and we paid up and left. Disappointing.
Visited again last week. The new menu items were a real hit. Just got to love this place for a unique evening meal.
No kids so took advantage....😜
Most enjoyable meal i have eaten in ages. Wonderful flavours from a fantastic menu. Can't wait to go back and try more and try some cocotails! Friendly and helpful staff. Best value for money in Cheltenham. Cuttlefish my favourite..similar to squid but better.
Very good food, the vegetarian dishes especially delicious: Hopper, chick peas, carrots etc..
Amazing experience! Great food reminding me of times in Sri Lanka.
What a great find! Really authentic and delicious food - plenty of variety on the menu. Highlights were the cuttlefish and the daal. Excellent service, thoroughly enjoyed our lunch here. Highly recommend!!
Great night. We went with what our waiter recommended and had a great meal.
Great for something a bit different,not fine dining but loads of new tastes, high table seating is a bit cramped but okay. 'Normal' tables looked fine. The cuttlefish and the cheese dishes were brilliant
Food was delicious, service was great. Had a lovely meal.
Good find with unusual food you would not expect. No frills but Reasonable priced. Would go again. 😁
As always we had a good experience at the Coconut Tree. The food is super tasty and was good to try new additions. Cheesy columbo was still the entire table’s favourite though!
Very relaxed atmosphere, great decor, friendly, helpful staff, wicked cocktails and delicious food to cater for all dietary requirements. Will definitely visit again when I'm back in Cheltenham.
This was our first visit on a Saturday lunchtime and wow, simply blown away by the service. Our waiter got the kids involved in making mocktails and took his time to explain the menu. The food didn't take long to arrive and was so tasty. We're already looking forward to visiting again.
Such a great spot for authentic Sri Lankan food. Great menu and loads of vegan options. Good price andcgreat quality and service. Thank you
Loved it, amazing food and great service. Decor of the restaurant added to the theme and enjoyed every bit of it
This restaurant was recommended by family who live locally... what a treat! The food here was great and the atmosphere really relaxed. The service was great and you weren't kept waiting at all. However, I think this is generally an eat and go place and not somewhere you could install everyone for an entire evening... we were very happy with that but its something to be aware of when you book... they do tell you what time your seats are next booked from ...we liked that! The food here was incredibly tasty and different and it was excellent value for money. We will definitely visit again when in Cheltenham!
As always lovely food good atmosphere. New dishes on the menu highly recommend the new beetroot dish. Food delivered very quickly on this visit
Fantastic food, great service and fun way of serving lots of little dishes to try - works well with a group
Very understanding and helpful with food intolerances.
Amazing food, great drinks and excellent service.
Would definitely recommend!
We went for a mother's day treat and were so pleased with everything. The food was amazing and so were the staff.
We are definately going back for a second visit.
What a find!!! We chose this restaurant because of the amazing reviews and we weren't disappointed. The food was gorgeous and there was plenty of it too. The service was also exceptional with the waitress being more than happy to explain how the menus works and to make recommendations. We really enjoyed the atmosphere too - really lively but totally chilled. We will definitely be back.
The curry was really heavy and had the texture of a mushy tuna pasta bake
Thank you for writing your review, we look daily at reviews across TripAdvisor, Open Table and Google in our business to learn about what people like and dislike, this has given us much discussion in-house. We are cooking our family recipes from back home, our head chefs are all Sri Lankan born and owners of the business so food is our Sri Lankan food is our anchor. We prepare and cook fresh daily. We are sorry this particular dish wasn't to your taste. All the best TCT
Excellent food, delightful service and a good feel to the place. The only thing was the music was a bit loud and sitting at a bar against the wall rather detracted from the experience. I would return but only to a table.
Food was ok some thing different I wouldn’t go again we needed a high chair and when it came it was filthy the floor was sticky under our feet and we was sat near the back door and all I call smell was cigarette smoke the whole time which put me off anyway and it was cold! The staff were not brilliant either kids food came out when everyone else was nearly finishing which wasn’t nice for them to sit and watch everyone eat
Lovely atmosphere and great tasting drinks and food
Good, varied menu. Although billed as tapas style, the portions were slightly bigger than expected, so ordering the recommended 3-4 dishes per person might be overdoing it a bit. We're comfortable with not all dishes arriving together, but it was a bit bizarre that the fried rice arrived pretty much as we were finished. We also ended up with 2 orders of the (delicious) cheese dish, having ordered only 1 and one dish arrived so late that we weren't charged for it. That said, everything was really tasty and the atmosphere was great - we would definitely recommend and will go again.
Excellent food as usual and a very lively atmosphere. Waiting staff are friendly and helpful. The only problem is getting a table as it's so popular.
Problems with our booking which we did online. Eventually sat us in the outside smoking area. The food we got was excellent but they missed part of our order. Won't be back
A great experience, food was amazing but quite a long wait which we expected as we’ve visited before
Cheap food with no real taste other than hot, egg wrap with spice, squid seemed to be in the same sauce as the small chicken wings, no meat Served to our party we opted for the 20 pounds a head surprise dishes, we all thought it tasted weird, uncomfortable high chairs pushed round a tall table not big enough so cramped, all in all not good but cheap, would not return
We are sorry if our seating wasn't your thing, we do list high tops (bar stools & high tables) which you reserved but think you would have preferred the normal heights tables & benches. It's very street food esk in our offer from tapas style dishes to decor. We are a small group of Sri Lankan friends and family along and are cooking our family recipes from back home. Our head chefs are all Sri Lankan born and owners of the business so food is our anchor. Sorry it wasn't to your liking. Best TCT
Barman very helpful and welcoming. Food good but black pork dish a little warm but not hot in temperature. Dishes mostly hot and spicy.
Great service and food as always. Managed to pick a quiet day as it's normally always busy (so best book).
No long waits and the food was exquisite as expected.
Good value food in a pleasant environment with attentive staff. I enjoyed an unusual cuisine. Careful, some gets a bit spicy.
This restaurant serves Sri Lankan Street food in small dishes for sharing. This is a great way of trying lots of new dishes. There were 4 in our party and we ordered 7 dishes plus an 'egg hopper' each to start with. By the end of the meal we were all really full. Dishes come as they are ready. This is not a fine dining place. Surrounding are basic with wooden tables and benches, but this adds to its charm. Staff were really helpful and attentive. A great experience.
Lovely birthday lunch with a friend - really nice atmosphere, great service, and the food just gets better and better.
Food as always fab . It was busy but did find the waitress rude and not engaging .
Amazing service, beautiful food and lovely cocktails. Can’t wait to come again! x
Great evening. Very noisy but great ambience and energy. Loved the food too.
