The Coconut Tree
Tasty, imaginative food, served in funky surroundings.
We were pleased we had an early booking as it took a while for all our food to arrive - because it is cooked fresh and there are lots of dishes.
Flavoursome but not uncomfortably hot spice wise.
Great choice of vegan food.
Great food but let down by service - waited over 20 mins for drinks and then another half hour before any food came. Food was really tasty though
Fabulous food and atmosphere .. can’t wait to go back!
Food was amazing as usual and Pippy our waiter was ace! Highly recommend but make sure to book in advance! It’s very popular. (Cheltenham restaurant)
Food was great and the staff were nice to talk to and when I asked, made a few suggestions from the menu which I would recommend doing.
It was pretty busy but not crowded, a nice chill atmosphere
The food was fantastic and was delivered to us not long after ordering!
Excellent cocktails, decent food at a fair price and friendly service too.
Try the Chocolate Old Fashioned, one of the best drinks in town ✌️
Was lovely to enjoy good food with my family in a lovely warm environment, always love the vibe and music thanks again.
We didn't know what to try, so we asked for a range of recommendations and had a mix of about six fabulous dishes, hot, spicy and tasty, served by People who struck the balance between being attentive and unobtrusive - always with a smile!
Really nice food, flavours of some the dishes are incredible, nice chilled vibe in the restaurant , very busy, dessert was not as great as mains, but don’t let that put you off, we will go back again and try some different dishes.
Great place always buzzing, food amazing, lovely friendly staff
Absolutely fantastic food, really tasty and flavoursome. Great cocktails too. We'll be back!
Service was slower than normal, and it took quite a while to have even our drink orders taken, which is unusual here. Probably just a one off.
The food was really good, tapas style so small plates that came out when ready. Initial advice on menu choices was also good. Food was quick to the table mostly and very tasty and delicious. The vibe and the main restaurant had a great atmosphere, and as it's street food the seating is more on stools/benches than seats. Unfortunately, we were sat at the back which was a bit cold and lacking in atmosphere, and also may have contributed to the, shall we say, 'relaxed' attitude to the service. Although the staff walked by us many times as we were near the kitchen, we had to go to the bar to ask for service twice, and weren't offered a desert menu. The service has contributed to only being able to award 3 stars.
For something a little different this is your place. It’s quirky, the food is tasty and the cocktails are fab.
If the menu changed more frequently we’d go more often.
Good was ok nothing special. Was nice to eat somewhere different but probably wouldn't go back
Great food, very friendly staff and nice drinks!
Great food and great fun....the cocktails aren’t bad either! :-)
Amazing food. Wanted to try so many of the dishes and with 4 of us we did order about 12. Every single one was delicious. And 2 for £10 or 2 for £12 cocktails were really good too. We will definitely be back.
Food is always fantastic.
Service was a little slow this time around 30 minutes before we got a drink and 50 minutes before food. It was reasonably busy but not rammed on a Thursday night
Great food, bursting with flavours! Really nice atmosphere and very helpful staff! Will certainly go again!
As with previous visits, had a lovely evening with friends joining us from Manchester.
Great food - second visit.
We ordered too much but still managed to eat most of it! Took the rest home.
Great flavours and a lovely mixture .
It would have received 5 stars if the Prawns or Black Pork had not been off the menu. Service was good, staff were polite, friendly and efficient. A little difficult to have a conversation due to the volume of the background music. On the whole worth a visit and I would go again.
TCT always has amazing food and ambience, and the Rio rumble cocktail is one of my favourites ever. Had my 18th bday party here and they were super great with organising the event (Naveen particularly!). Would definitely recommend!!
Amazing as always.
Absolutely love The Coconut Tree. Fab food and great surroundings.
Friday night was really busy - no issue there - but the music was so loud I was having to yell at the person opposite me.
Love the buzz and hustle, just please can we take it down a tiny amount?
We’ll be back 😊
We had a great time with friends, the food is amazing. We said how much we wanted to spend per head and left the choice to the waiting staff, we devoured everything! The only downside is the lighting and the volume of the music, unfortunately we are all of an age where our sight and hearing is not what it was 🙁 Not that this will deter us from returning!
A great value lunch to celebrate a 50th Birthday. It was quiet as it was lunchtime but still a friendly atmosphere
Buzzing, lively atmosphere, relaxed decor, warm welcome. Food was outstanding for the money - we ordered loads of food from the very tempting menu, had a couple of beers each and still came away paying just £60 with tip. We were so impressed that we searched the web for other locations, as the Coconut Tree is a small chain, but sadly there isn’t one in Essex - yet.
Fantastic first visit! Keep doing what you’re doing guys! We’ll be back! Thanks for the surprise birthday cake too !
Amazing food. Incredible value. First choice if planning a meal out.
Thanks so much for making our evening meal and taste of Sri Lankan street food so enjoyable
I’ve been to the Coconut Tree many times before with friends, and it’s still my favourite place to eat!!! Yummy food and gorgeous cocktails. X
Great venu not far from the town centre. Great seating for groups, friendly staff who were happy to explain the dishes and allergens. Lots of vegan and gluten free options and a range of spice levels.
Authentic SL street food in a warm and welcoming atmosphere. Great service and outstanding value. Can't wait for my next visit.
The 4 plates per person was dear for £20. I would suggest splitting it between two people. As such, 8 x plates for two people for £20. £10 each.
Me and a friend could not finish it all and this would be wasted for customer and chef.
Otherwise could not fault it
Excellent food and atmosphere. Very enjoyable evening and very well priced. I wold definitely recommend The Coconut Tree 10/10
Went for the “I can’t decide” option as it was my first time there. Best food decision I’ve ever made! The food, the vibe of the place- unbelievable!
A Must try if you haven’t already done so.
Extremely noisy. Food very very salty. 3 times requested tap water 3 times our request was ignored
