The food is fabulous and extremely reasonably priced.
Amazing food, great atmosphere and brilliant service ! Made our meal for 7 a highly memorable evening- thank you team 😊
Nice, relaxed atmosphere, though noise levels were challenging for one of our party. Lovely food - vegetarian options especially good. Hoppers marvellous! Fab service, all serving staff very helpful and food with wine was really good value. We’ll be back!
Absolutely brilliant! Amazing food & wonderful staff. We’ll be back!
Fantastic food - amazing flavours, covered all our varied dietary requirements, and at £20pp, there was far more than our party of 6 could eat. Attentive staff who knew their stuff. Loved it. Thank you 😊
Excellent food great service and friendly staff. Will definitely go again
A unique experience, there are few other places in Oxford offering similar style Sri Lankan share plates. Lovely flavours, generous portions.
The food is good, but I would not go to this restaurant for a culinary experience. Cocktails are very good, I strongly suggested to try them!
Service good and very friendly
Amazing food. Suggestion for the staff was spot on. Loved it.
Lovely atmosphere but it was cold. We were in early in the evening though so appreciate it's hard to get it right.
Getting attention of the staff for more drinks was slow but would go again in a heart beat. Food made up for the small "issues"
Paid a load of money for a gross tasting bowl of cabbage. The whole place stank of bleach and the waiters got my order wrong. Don’t go to this restaurant it’s really over rated and probably bigged up my oxford uni students because they think it sounds cool and hip.
Crap food for a rip off price.
Amazing. Impressive food and service
Lovely menu.had run our of one of tge curries hence the 4/5. Great to try something a bit different. If you like spicy food you should come here would come again!
The Coconut Tree is a real find.
The food here is pretty special.
In truth, I've never really looked back since a slightly strange coloured concoction delivered to our table turned out to be the delectable squid and prawn dish.
Simply put, this place is a real gem.
The food was really nice and good that it is small plates so you can try a few things. The service was slightly slow.
Our booking was for 6.30pm and they had no rice even though there was a shop next door.
Excellent food and service will definitely be going back and highly recommends
The place to be. Excellent food, excellent cocktails and excellent service. All the star are uber friendly and nothing is too much trouble. Would, and have, recommend.
Excellent food in a relaxed atmosphere. Pumpkin curry is great. Terrific value for money
We loved the coconut tree so much the first time we went there that we went back 6 days later - such great food! Highly recommended.
Service was exceptionally slow, but other than that everything was fine. Food was great, as always. There were 8 of us and we shared 4 "tasting menus", where the staff chooses the dishes for us. Everything we ate was tasty and there was plenty of food for everyone. Even through that, the place was able to accommodate our needs, with sufficient amounts of vegan dishes, as well as dishes which were not spicy. We'll definitely be back.
We had a disappointing start. We arrived and waited where it said to wait (at the end of the bar). Had booked a table online. Waited and waited. Checked the cocktail menu whilst waiting. Ignored by all bar staff. In the end we checked on the ipad (which was on the bar) where we were meant to be sat, took our own menus and sat ourselves down! The food was incredible and for this reason we would recommend and go back. Lots of unusual choices, very tasty and fresh and great value. The flaming cocktail was lovely too. Just a shame the service at the start did ruin the evening. I'm still not actually sure if it is self service and you're meant to sit yourself down - will find out when we go back I guess!
A good atmosphere with some a very good menu. Lots of tasty choices for different palates and dietary requirements plus a great cocktail list. The staff were great and dealt with the complications of a large group all ordering at different times very well. Would definitely recommend.
Delicious food and a great overall experience. We were the last to leave and were the loudest in the restaurant so I can't really comment on the noise level!
Normally love the coconut tree but last nights meal in oxford was really poor service. Didn’t get our food for over an hour after arrival and then they served the food up telling us they’d run out of one dish! Not made aware earlier and consequently had to pick another dish and wait for it. Not acceptable. Luckily the food makes up for it. Hopefully a one off x
The service was very poor. We had to go find a server each time we wanted to order food, a drink or dessert and then again when we wanted to pay.
The food however was great and good value for money. Would recommend it for the food
Great little place! Friendly and efficient service, staff very knowledgable and helpful. It was a relaxed dining setting, restaurant was clean. The food was delicious and the menu varied - we struggled to narrow down what we wanted which is a rarity when ordering from just the veggie selection, will definitely be back to try more dishes!
Never had Sri Lankan cuisine before, but the £20 mix recommended by the staff was very good value and excellent on the taste buds.
I particularly liked the tapas style servings.
This is the second time coming back to The Coconut Tree, it's an absolutely wonderful restaurant for a dinner and it's full of vibrant life. I don't often go back to the same restaurant because I always like to try different ones because there is an abundance of great food, however I rebooked this as soon as I knew I was going back to Oxford. The food is fantastic and an amazing value for money, both times my partner and very kindly asked the staff to pick for us (neither of us have alleges) and both times have been amazed by the quality of food and the service. The only negative is that the restaurant is quite small so you definitely would have to book to ensure you get a tablet.
Tasty food but it needed a bit of attention to detail.
Everything was brown and orange and cried out for some green herbs, or fresh spring onions or salad.
Friendly staff and efficient service.
Friendly buzzing atmosphere but unfortunately the food was a bit disappointing. We opted for the £20 per head menu which the waitress offered to put together as we had not been before. I am not sure whether it was her choices that didn’t work for me. The curry was tasty enough but it was all a bit dull in terms of texture - could have done with more vegetables maybe. Might try again sometime and choose own dishes next time. The hopper was the highlight.
Very good experience in Oxford. We’ve never been in a Libanese the restaurant and we’ve appreciate this kind of food. We recommend this restaurant.
The food was upmarket, delicious Sri Lankan "street" food and very authentic. We were slightly overcharged for the drinks but this was off-set by great service and being discounted for the error. Special credit to the waiter, Sam, who provided excellent and friendly service throughout the evening.
The food was sensational but the service was not, very inattentive staff.
Super friendly staff, felt really welcome! Food was nice, and plentiful and staff very happy to advise. A tiny mistake was made with our order and they apologised several times (we said no problem and not to worry about it, as it really was a minor problem) and then when we got the bill we were really surprised to have been given a huge discount!! Thank you! Definitely recommended, nice food, good for vegetarians and really buzzy atmosphere. :)
Absolutely amazing atmosphere, food, staff. Drinks a little slow but can’t fault anything else. Wish there was a coconut tree down south!
Good venue and atmosphere
Service is slow
Got the bill wrong
Made a mess of my cake box and misplaced it
Food was outstanding, especially the spicy cuttlefish and Cheesy Colombo (could not get enough of this). All staff members knew the menu very intimately and gave their own personal recommendations.
Dessert was also one of the best we've had (Watalappam). Great ambience. Definitely recommend!!
We visited for a birthday meal and were really impressed. the staff were very helpful, they knew all the dishes on the menu so were able to give recommendations on dishes. the food was really delicious and very well priced. we had to wait a little while for our table as we were the second sitting and the people before us didn't leave when they were supposed to, but the staff gave us two drinks on the house to make up for it.
We would recommend the restaurant and would definitely go back if we visit Oxford again.
I definitely would return to try more dishes and more cocktails!
Wonderful meal. Relatively quiet with a pleasant ambience. Our server was helpful as we had not had Sri Lankan food before. The food was all delicious but quite varied in flavor. Really excellent overall.
