A really interesting menu, plenty of variety and unusual dishes, beautifully cooked. Great service and very reasonable.
Amazing food and great staff. Very nice ambience and reasonably priced
Four of us had a fantastic meal here after a recommendation from an Oxford friend. The food was delicious and we tried a huge number of small dishes and enjoyed them all. Great service, just the right level of attention.
Absolutely outstanding. Great food, great atmosphere, great value. The staff were enthusiastic and friendly. Highly recommended!
brilliant! great value wonderful variety, fantastic veggie and vegan, lovely staff - thank you!
We were a table of 8 on a quiet Monday lunchtime and the services was very slow. The drinks took a long time to arrive and one person who ordered a beer didn't get it at all. Having said that, we ordered a lot of food to share between the 8 of us including some vegan food. All the dishes were excellent, well presented and delicious!
The only thing I regret is not coming here sooner. Absolutely wonderful place with delicious food and great cocktails. Really nice atmosphere and very good value too. We will be returning.
Tripadvisor and people in Oxford say that Coconut Tree is a "must", and actually it is. There are not many places to try food from Sri Lanka, and its "tapas concept" allows you taste many different dishes in one lunch. The staff is very friendly and their advices so useful
Great restaurant, lovely friendly staff with fantastic food, would definitely go back!
Delicious food, friendly staff, wonderful birthday treats, lovely atmosphere. So thoughtful. Loved the hoppers as a first bite and then sharing many tasty vegetarian and fish dishes. Have been three times recently and loved the experience each time
Interesting concept, wealth of choice, reasonably priced
Lovely food and great service in a relaxed environment. I went there with a friend and we really enjoyed it.
My family ate at the Coconut Tree for the first time recently - and will definitely return. A lovely vibe, attentive service and imaginative dishes at very reasonable prices. If you've visited Sri Lanka on holiday (or think you might like to), then this will bring back fabulous memories - or prepare you for your trip with a taste of authentic food. The cocktail menu alone is a work of art - and great to have Lion beer on offer.
Love this restaurant, have been several times and always know that it will cater for all dietary requirements and the food will still be fantastic.
Very delayed service, tasty food but it took far too long. The place is extremely noisy in the evening and the acoustics/sound management needs attention.
Having been before, some dishes are not consistent - which is a pity
I've been twice, the first experience was certainly better than the second. On my latest visit the service was mediocre at best - took ages to be seen to give us the menu, did not come back to take a drinks order - I had to go to the bar to get a drink; the food took an age to arrive; some of the food that was delivered was wrong and a couple of things we ordered did not arrive.
Amazing food, cosy place, they don’t charge for service as it is a street food concept. I recommend to book a table as is always crowded!
Booked for my husbands birthday. Very popular place and had a real buzz about it. Food was super. Staff great, giving lots of advice. Loved the experience.
It was a very good experience!
Only small downside, the sound a little too loud.
Was in on Saturday 27th Oct for the better halfs birthday and we had an absolutely lovely time, just the food was great, the service was super, it's tapas style, so you get lil bowls of food and ya pick and browse and just all the food was glorious, an absolute treat I tell ya! The two gentlemen who served us, Mr Tequila and Pineapple, were excellent too, Mr Tequila helped us on what to pick and choose, and Pineapple was the chef, and he was good enough to tell me to be careful with the pumpkin turmeric curry, cause the turmeric would stain my white shirt! I mean little things like that, is what made it great for us, and the quality of the food too, I could go on and on, but I do say, go and experience Sri Lankan street food for yourself at The Coconut Tree. Thank You all again for the quality in service and food.
Booked a table of 8.
Nothing was too much trouble and everything was with a smile.
Can’t wait to go again.
Had a nice time at the Coconut tree, food was excellent and the service also very good. Seating very cramped, it felt we were on top of other people behind us (both sides). Music level was too loud, everyone shouting to fellow diners for conversation, not what you want when sitting down for a meal at 7.30pm, I had the manager turn the volume down but it was still too loud for eating and conversation, When leaving I found it was quieter in the bar area where you might expect it to be louder. I would recommend this place to eat and I'd go back but would want the music turned down more.
Been several times to the Coconut Tree, it's never failed to impress me. The Staff are excellent. The food is tasty. The cocktails are wonderful.
Waited nearly 25mins after sitting at our table to be served. Restaurant was full however. Service was nice and polite and food was nice. Didn't like the long table that we had as the table had benches and the table was rickety. Would I eat there again? Probably yes after they perhaps have more serving staff.
Welcoming, friendly service. We go because there are so many vegan options and each dish we’ve tried has been really good.
Overall a great little restaurant.
Delicious food - friendly service and great atmosphere! I'll go again and again until I have tasted everything on their menu.
Flavoursome food with fast service and value for money. Extremely loud on a Saturday evening - no conversation possible
Great ambience, friendly helpful staff and delicious good.
Very busy with good atmosphere, may have been why the service was lacking but the staff were friendly. Good value. Food was very spicy.
Visited after reading positive reviews on Tripadvisor, and having just returned from Sri Lanka. Food, service and ambiance was excellent and a great introduction to Sri Lankan food for those that are new to it. Also really good value for money. I recommend people to try this place, it is a real gem. They also took note of my request for a table in a quieter area as one of our party was hard of hearing (though this isn't a quiet restaurant).
Really lovely food and staff!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Great find, the little boards on the table welcoming your party are a lovely touch. We were celebrating a birthday and received a free cocktail which was unexpected and very welcome. Fabulous food and designed to share so very social. Goat curry was my favourite, I will be back!
Great food, great service, good value. I would highly recommended the Coconut Tree when you are in Oxford.
Great service, the barman took a lot of time to explain the menu and make recommendations. And the food was lovely - we had not eaten Sri Lankan food before, really enjoyed the flavours. Also the Wood Apple juice and the cocktails were great. Would definitely go back.
Really enjoyed the meal. Lovely friendly staff. Would definitely eat there again
Just a few minutes walk out of central Oxford. Great atmosphere, large (and varied) menu with delicious food that is fairly unique. The service was very friendly but at some times hard to get the waiters attention.
Great cocktail menu.
Great food, intersteing flavours and yummy cocktails.
Very friendly staff who are passionate about the food and advising what to order. We were there for a quiet dinner for my husband’s birthday and it is was the perfect setting and ambience.
Great little restaurant - and 99% delicious food.
Personally I didn't find the "Hoppers" that were recommended as a must-have starter to be that interesting - perhaps get a sample to share and see if you like them before ordering a full round for everybody.
But most dishes (we tried many) were very tasty, blending a range of ingredients into interesting combinations that seem to be uniquely Sri Lankan. Many were quite spicy, which I love, but may not be for everybody so if you're not accustomed to heat, ask before you dive in.
We had a very pleasant evening - thanks to all the very helpful, informative and friendly young TCT team.
p.s. If you want a comfortable sofa, a seat with a back, as opposed to a bench, be sure to say so when booking.
Authentic Sri Lankan food on our trip to Oxford. Great and friendly service and as a bonus, under 10s eat free!
