Been living in Cheltenham for 12 years, this has changed how I think about eating out in Cheltenham finally we have somewhere that has outstanding food that’s tasty and full in flavour.

Thank you

I really liked The Coconut Tree. The flavours are different and, even with just two of us, we were able to order a good variety of dishes with a reasonable bill at the end. Unfortunately I don't live locally but if I did, I'd definitely be back!

The food was unusual and delicious. The seating On a barstool was tricky for an older person like me, but the food made it well worth it. I can’t wait to go back!

Great place for our small farewell meal to travelling family. Just a little disappointed that it was our 2nd visit without drunken bananas 😔. Our guests were very impressed with meal experience overall. Thanks guys!

Great place to eat delicious plentiful healthy food served by lovely people who will explain the menu which is slightly unusual. Booking advisable and especially if you want to sit at a standard table of which there are not too many but other bar type seating available. Great value too. Would definitely recommend

Enjoyable evening with interesting, tasty food and good service. Table cosy but a little small for six people. Noise level was a too much for us older folk with hearing aids!!

Lovely food, great cocktails and fab atmosphere. A really chilled place with quick service. They offer a wide variety of food and cocktails at affordable prices. I love seafood so particularly enjoyed the prawn and squid curry, very tender seafood in a delicious sauce. The pineapple curry was also very tasty although a bit spicy for me.
I would recommend all the dishes we tried including spicy battered mushrooms and deviled chicken wings. Will definitely be going back.

Always a great place, it was super busy this time and the staff coped admirably. Ordered some of the new additions to the menu as well as old favourites. The food is always great and the staff are so friendly. Love this place.

Love the place- however didn’t like high rise seats for 2 - limited space and too close to couple next to us- restrictive eating room

Good food, great ambiance and loved the biz as a busy little place - food portion sizes were great - wasn’t the cheapest meal ever but overall was good value for money

I don't live in Cheltenham, I live in Birmingham. I love the Coconut Tree so much that I wanted to take my sister. Yes, we have many great restaurants in Birmingham but we don't have anything comparable to this. It is worth the journey.

The food is so different to any other cuisine I've ever had; full of flavour, interesting combinations, fresh ingredients. Just delicious.

Throw in good cocktails, great vibe and friendly staff and you have something really special. Can't recommend enough.

Fantastic! We were a group of 8, ordered the set menu which gave us the chance to try multiple flavours from the menu. We expected the food to be extremely spicy - but the heat was well balanced with the flavours and we could taste everything. Everything tasted fresh and authentic.
Our only suggestion for improvement would be to phase the dishes so that they don’t all arrive together; we struggled a little to fit everything on the table.
We left the Coconut tree with full stomachs and smiles on our faces.🤪🤪🤪

Really lovely atmosphere, great friendly service and a lovely menu. Food was delicious, if a bit spicy for the average person. Would highly recommend but only if you can take the heat!

We had a great evening at the coconut tree. The atmosphere was relaxed and welcoming. Our waitress explained the menu to us and suggested that we order a selection of different dishes because we were finding it hard to decide. This was brilliant. We tried all sorts of things that we probably wouldn't have thought of ordering. Two of our party were vegetarian and were very well catered for. A lovely evening. Highly recommended 5*

Always have a fab meal here. Being gluten free it’s a treat to go somewhere and be able to choose from most things on the menu, especially when the food is so delicious! Lots of small dishes at reasonable prices so you always feel you are getting a great deal and get to try lots of new flavours. Staff always friendly and helpful, would recommend.

I love the Coconut Tree, it is everything that a small local restaurant should be. I have eaten there a number of times and the food is consistently delicious and served with smiles and humour by the young and friendly team, who know their stuff and can offer knowledgeable guidance on the menu. Really great.
