Amazing flavours

Me and my partner went to The Coconut Tree for our monthly date night. It was our first fully vegan restaurant experience. My partner is not vegan and I asked if he was going to eat meat and he said he didn’t want to, he was there for the experience to see if the food we make at home is as nice as restaurant vegan food. Oh my didn’t it exceed! It was full of such amazing flavours and different options. We have never eaten Sri Lankan food before but it was delicious! I would highly recommend everyone to honestly give The Coconut Tree a go because it was outstanding!
I have found some recipes on their website that I shall be remaking myself at home! My partner said he didn’t even miss Meat or Dairy with how amazing the food was. #Veganuary

Very good, stay for the kotthu

Really enjoyable food here. Well spiced with lots of vegan options, very tasty and fresh.

- The curries are soooo nice, recommend the pumpkin. Very creamy.
- The battered mushrooms are great.
- The kotthu is the star here. My fav dish and I order it every single time. Well spiced and very very good.

Really nice food, shame it’s not fully vegan, good drinks too.

Pros: Great cocktails , Delicious curries , Kotthu is phenomenal

Cons: The seats are terrible and uncomfy lol

Good variety

Good variety of decent vegan food. As a PSA, I’d get at least 2 curries to make sure you’ve got plenty of sauce for all your other dishes

Tasty Sri Lankan food

The food here is good with quite a few vegan options across the menu. I particularly liked the pumpkin and potato dishes I ordered. The main issue is that we felt very rushed by the staff; it’s a popular restaurant but you’re only allowed to stay for an hour and a half which means that you don’t really get to enjoy the tapas style food in a relaxed way.

Pros: Vegan options

Cons: Rushed by staff

Plenty of vegan choices and really tasty. Great to get a variety of different dishes. Especially loved the roast potatoes, chickpea dish, and dhal. But we enjoyed all of it.

Great food!

Never been to a Sri lankan restaurant before - really enjoyed this for a change. Some interesting dishes on the menu I've never tried before such as mango and pineapple curries..some dishes too hot for me (but I'm a spice wimp!). The hoppers are the real winners on the menu, don't leave without trying them! Really busy when we visited, booking is still definitely recommended!

A vegan friend had recommended coming here while in Bristol so we'd assumed the menu was 100%. Sadly it's not, but it is about 70/80% vegan so there's tons to choose from. We had three small dishes and one large plate between two of us and that was enough. The dishes were full of flavour, all real ingredients and healthy which was great after a weekend of vegan junk food and cakes. We'll definitely be back next time we're in the area.
