We have been to the Coconut Tree in Oxford before for lunch and it was very good then. This time we visited in the evening for dinner and he food was very good again (even took some away with us in a doggie bag) and...the service we received from Karina was outstanding. We will be backMore

We visited for pre theatre dinner. We’d pre-booked and when we arrived everyone was seated at one end of the restaurant, the tables were really close together making it feel really cramped. Service was ok, on the slow side… but ok. Food was ok, good...size portions but the beef rendang was SO salty! Felt it was ok, bit overpriced. Wouldn’t returnMore

Really tasty food & really attentive staff. Quick pre-theatre dinner, & food served quickly. Would visit again when next in Oxford especially if visiting the theatre.

Food was delicious, staff really friendly. Very long wait in the restaurant although delivery orders leaving the pass every few minutes. That seems to be where the priority is rather than with the customers in the restaurant.

Randomly picked where to it for my son’s birthday on a cold friday night in Oxford and we chose this place.The place wasn’t very busy when we first came in and then it was already nearly full when we left.Staff are all nice but seem...to be getting used to their system. We ordered mostly chicken and yes the plate are small for what you pay for.Had tofu and prawn pad thai and it was nice.The pina colada was lovely as well.Overall it was okey visitMore

Overall the food has mixed reviews some excellent dishes some not so. Service was generally good but they brought the main course before the starters and drinks and assumed we wanted both at the same time, strangely the waiter thought it was ok to do...this!! They offered and did recook the main dishes. Main course portion of charred duck was a little dry and small more like a starter. Banana desert was stodgy and fatty. The dumplings and satay starters where great. The banana tree special was large and good.. The chocolate fondant was excellent. We had 1 1/2 hours scheduled and the meal took all of it, so wasn’t rushed. We would both go again as the restaurant was convenient and the menu selection was wide and varied.More

Food was nice but I think for the price compared to portion size especially for the mains I disagree and don’t think it is worth it, unfortunately not in a rush to go back there, but service was generally good

Amazing evening meal on Sunday evening .. the food was delicious .. not big eaters, so we ordered pad thai, gyoza, corn fritters and calamari and shared. The calamari was the best we’ve ever had. Lots of Asian customers, that in itself says it all....Ambiance, service and food first class! Will definitely be going back next time we’re in Oxford!More

Booked a table for two last week, tried to book online first but was unable to so like any normal human being I called them to politely ask if they could book it for me over the phone, which they did. We don’t live in...the area and were excited to have a Thai meal after a day out in Oxford, turned up on time and advised we had a table for two but the male attendant advised it was IMPOSSIBLE that we could have booked over the phone as he’d spoken to the only other lady who could have taken our booking. Well slap my a*** and call me Sally my partner and I must be clinically nuts because we both clearly remember booking. Thanks for nothing and for your patronising tone. We will not be returning.More
