The Coconut Tree
Inexpensive interesting food, off the beaten track but worth a visit.
Loved the food atmosphere. Wonderful can’t wait to go again
I live in Sri Lanka and am absolutely overjoyed that when I am back in my hometown visiting family I can soothe my homesickness with a taste of authentic Sri Lankan food. Thank you guys for creating a fabulously welcoming and chill place to eat and spend an evening. Only negative is that Arack Sours are no longer on the menu but the “Drunken Sri Lankan”s eased the pain. See you next year :)
Overall the ambiance of the place was welcoming and relaxed. A little disappointed that some of the food wasn't hot enough and not all as flavourful as I would hope. But would definitely give it another go.
Delicious and really cheap. Perfect place for a relaxed meal.
Thoroughly enjoyable food with fantastic service and a great vibe. I came on Monday with my friend who has just moved here from Sri Lanka and he loved the food as well. Will be back again soon with all the family.
Amazing food and great atmosphere!! Will definitely be going again
Amazing as always. Great food, great service and great atmosphere!
A lively atmosphere and interesting enjoyable food. Depending on where you sit, it could perhaps be a little lacking in ventilation but overall a pleasant experience
Love it here! Great food, relaxed atmosphere and the staff are fantastic. Perfect for a fun night out with a group of friends.
Great if you want something a bit different, staff were attentive and informative about the different dishes and made good suggestions. Really enjoyed our lunch.
Very tasty food in quirky surroundings. Service good. Will be back.
Really tasty food - a lot of it plant based too. Jolly casual atmosphere.
Amazing food, helpful waitress and quick service. Cocktails didnt seem very strong but were still a nice accompaniment. Will definitely go back.
Lovely food just the right portion size good service and atmosphere within the restaurant, definitely save some room for pudding the bananas are beautiful the batter so light and crispy. Definitely will be returning
Excellent food with plenty of choice. Great cocktails too.
The food was amazing!
Although I’d love to see a curry with chicken breast on the menu.
Will definitely be back again soon!
Had lots of friends visiting for the jazz festival and we all loved it! My favourite place to eat in Cheltenham.
Excellent food, good advice from server on what dishes compliment each other, just a really nice place to eat. Tons of vegan options! Hard to get a table! That’s always a good sign.
Excellent food. Delighted us all. Good value. Drink reasonable. Wonderful owners/staff. Does what it says on the tin. Would definitely recommend.
Spicy cuttlefish dish was one of best dishes eaten out in Cheltenham
Hugely friendly team proud of their food and they should be
Will be back
Great atmosphere and service. Food was really nice and great to try new and unique dishes like the Hopper and the Cheesy Columbo’s. All nicely washed down with some tasty cocktails.
Food lacked seasoning. There was no ´devil´in the devilled chicken wings.
Our first taste of Sri Lankan food and we loved it! Delicious ‘tapas’ type dishes to share, lots of tasty gluten free and vegan food, great chilled atmosphere and the waitress was very friendly and helped us to order. Generally well priced though I thought the small prawn/squid dish at £7.50 was a little pricey, otherwise all good! Have already recommended to a few friends and will definitely go again.
The "I can't decide menu" gave us a good insight into the choices available. My favourite was the cashews. Would have liked a back to my seat and if there were a few more soft furnishings the background sound would have been less noisy. Generally, an enjoyable experience.
Brilliant as usual
We love the Coconut Tree and have eaten there several times. However on the last 2 occasions we have had a problem with our order. Firstly a dish that I had ordered did not arrive - as you are warned that dishes arrive as they are cooked and not all at the same time it is hard to know when you should remind the staff that you are still waiting for something. I eventually had it delivered after everyone else had finished eating (and 2 reminders to our waiter). This time I had 2 of one dish delivered and was missing another. I had to send it back as it was cold anyway and then had to ask for the missing dish to arrive. They tried to make it up by delivering a complimentary dish of another item but to be honest everyone was full then and it felt uncomfortable. The staff here are really nice and the food unique and delicious so I hope this does not continue to happen or we will just stop eating there!
Great vibe, great playlist and awesome food. Team are smiley and food was awesome!
Great venue for a group. We opted for the tasting menu, a great selection of dishes were brought out without us having to choose. This worked out as amazing value and meant we were all able to try a range of items from the menu. There were plenty of dishes and flavours to keep everyone happy.
The drinks selection was well received too!
As usual we had a wonderful time at the coconut tree. The food is always impeccable, service excellent and the cocktails are scrumptious. Particularly enjoyed the salted caramel espresso martini. Yum from start to finish!
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.
