Had a really lovely meal here - chose almost all vegan dishes, but couple of our party had the cheese dish too. Amazing choice of vegan tapas - everything was delicious. Staff gave helpful advice and recommendations on what to pick. Great value and child friendly. Can’t recommend enough. Will definitely return :)
This is a brilliant little restaurant, supported by enthusiastic, friendly and knowledgeable young staff. The Sri Lankan food was a revelation – light-years better than the bog standard high street Indian offering, and quite delicious. As usual, we ordered too much and were embarrassed about not consuming it all. We will know better next time, but will certainly go again
I love that it was different. The food was interesting, vibrant, plentiful and flavoursome. We opted for the ‘so you can’t decide’ house selection. This let us sample some amazing dishes and, in an unusually customer friendly quirk, allowed us to select a couple of plates to be included. At £20 per head, that was amazing value. They have a nice drink selection and the atmosphere is buzzy. Could they sharpen service a little, well maybe. There were a couple of little errors - but it didn’t detract from our evening. Thoroughly recommended.
Fantastic food and service, can’t wait to go back.
Our Waitress (Imran I think) was fab, happy and cheerful, mots of teh dishes were great especially teh Vegan Mushrooms
Really enjoyed - thanks. Food was great, lots of variety for veggies / vegans.
Food was really nice, tasty and lots of vegan choice which was really refreshing! I’ve only marked them down a little for the service because we ordered some beers to go with our food and they forgot them. Once prompted again by us they were very apologetic and offered the beers for free which was lovely of them. I really recommend this place for casual and tasty eats.
An understandly busy restaurant on Valentine’s Day. Myself and my girlfriend had a great experience. Only uncomfortable thing was that our table was right next to an active gangway to the kitchen and toilets and so it felt a little like we were squeezed in!
Won’t stop me from coming back though I’m sure.
Great service, great food! A lovely place to go and eat
Super good food! Really friendly staff, great for coeliacs, people with gluten allergies and vegans! A must go for those who love great food at cheap prices and amazing cocktails!!
Great birthday dinner out, 4 adults and 2 kids aged 9. It’s an informal but comfortable setting with music audible but not too loud. The cocktails were delicious and quickly replenished as required. The menu has loads of options so being Sri Lankan street food beginners we opted to let them choose us a variety at £20 per head. The kids ate a less spicy chicken rice and chickpeas dish for free. If I could advise on any areas of improvement, it would be to offer a plain ice cream for kids, but then again, I was quite happy to see my son try the coconut one. Our table was booked for 5:30. By the time we left circa 8:30, the place was heaving, so booking is essential. Thoroughly recommend.
Staff very friendly and helpful, cocktails delicious, menu varied and tasty and surprisingly great for gluten free. Really enjoyed our evening meal at The Coconut Tree.
Interesting menu, and some dishes were very good, e.g. clay pot fish, egg hoppers. But hot battered spicy cuttlefish had almost no spice, and if I hadn't been told I wouldn't have known it was cooked in a Sri Lankan style. Service helpful, but as the restaurant filled up it got a bit disorganised. (We ordered a roti that never came.) But overall good, good value and we will go back.
The food was fantastic. Service was awful. We had tried to go the week before, but they were randomly closed (in January) for their staff Christmas party. So, we decided to call before going this time. I tried a total of 6 times. After the first 3 I decided to leave a message, but the mailbox was full. So, I booked, but I wasn't sure if they would be open. I ended up calling 3 more times (after the opening time) but it wasn't until a good 8 min after opening that someone responded. Once we arrived, the service was mediochre. Very nice, but really could not be bothered. Food took a long time to arrive. And we were the only ones in there, so there was no excuse, really. Food was fantastic though.
Great food, variable service. Had to get us moved from the backroom as the table next to us had a dozen shouting hockey players on it and the noise level actually hurt my ears . I actually couldn't hear the waitress standing next to me. That room needs some soft sound deadening, possibly on the ceiling as it's unbearable. Drinks took an age to show up as did desserts and the bill. Serving staff were really friendly and nice but were pulled in too many directions.
Food was perfect, all staff that dealt with us were friendly and efficient. Our eyes were bigger than our bellies so we took the left over food in nice takeaway boxes and had it for dinner the next day.
We will be back for sure.
Food was amazing, service was very good and friendly.
Yummy food and tons of vegan options. Would definitely go again.
Fabulous food, good service and a fun atmosphere.
Only let down by no Sri Lankan beer.
Will definitely come again.
Friday night at the coconut tree, the place was packed to an inch of its floor space, with not much room to stretch out. The food was really tasty and the service was exceptional, an explanation of the dishes were spot on. All in all a lovely evening.
Its a lovely place to eat, but its the second time I've been there where they messed up our order. We had to wait for the first things an hour and some things didn't arrive at all and only after asking for it three times. The service is very friendly but their organisation is poorly.
Super cool little restaurant. Great food and a lovely selection of cocktails
Great evening very accommodating. Excellent food and service, options for all readily available and flexible too.
Food great, but service patchy. Had to keep waving for attention when the staff were standing in groups talking and not watching the diners. Disappointing that despite early table mid-week some items 'sold out'. Menu very well labelled for vegan and gluten-free.
We loved everything about it: the minimalist, ethical approach to decor and tableware, the tasty food (in fact, super tasty and oh so fresh), the no nonsense attitude, the sensible portions, and the friendly and helpful but not sticky service. An excellent little gem for a treat meal.
A bit of a wait to be seated and the service also rather slow. No real information given about the food. Overall quality of the food was a little below average. Dishes meant to be hot or warm were a little cold, some of the food was good but some was not. Cocktails were good. If you know what food and drink is good here then all is good, but beware if you are trying for the first time. Suggestion: come when it's not so busy/noisy, and select one or two dishes with a drink; repeat until you know the menu well, then I suspect you'll have a better experience.
Food is consistent and generally good. It was a busy night and too noisy for us. Service was poor although staff pleasant. For example one of the dishes was not brought out and we were not offered plates to eat off!
I am going to recommend this to all my friends in Oxford - great vegan menu, reasonably priced & just very enjoyable. Our service was extremely friendly and it made for a great night.
Decor and ambience was very good, excellent music playlist. Unfortunately one dish was missed off our order and some dishes arrived a bit cold. Egg hopper was excellent and the brinjal also very good.
Great food and people, super for casual eating owing to tapas style, occasions and couples nights.
Cool decor and very nice staff. Food was a bit unremarkable though. We wanted to like it but were sad when we didn't.
Lovely food, good value. Helpful service.
We visited at lunchtime on the 2nd Jan so a bit quiet (not their fault). Will return.
Fun place to visit with an interesting menu. Who thought cocktails and Sri Lankan cuisine would go so well together. Friendly service always helps too.
Brilliant restaurant – really enjoyed it wonderful service. Wonderful service and very good value.
Wonderful restaurant. The atmosphere was warm and welcoming, the team were friendly and provided great service and the food and value was outstanding! Will definitely come back to try more dishes. As a vegetarian, the range was really wide and varied. Great last meal of the year!
Great food great value with friendly and genuine staff that smiles even when they turned away from you!
Being picky one dish - the goat curry was slightly cold and for my wife a little salty. The only other issue was the tables in the middle are too close. I was knocked several times as people passed.
We had 8 dishes which were all fantastic and we have been eating Asian food for over 30 years on a regular basis.
Great cocktails and a lovely upbeat experience.
You need to open a restaurant in Kettering. You would do very well indeed.
I would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a rainbow of flavours and quality fresh food
I’ll be back if ever in Oxford
Amazing food at a great price. Also loads of delicious vegetarian and vegan options. Would definitely come again!
We had an outstanding lunch, great service, great food & great prices. If you love Sri Lankan food this restaurant is a must 👍
Absolutely love this place, amazing food, friendly staff, great for vegan options! LOVE IT!
Accused by open table of NO SHOW. Kinda spoils the evening
