Visited recently on a Saturday night. The restaurant was very busy and they had no record of our booking however the staff were very helpful and luckily we didn't have to wait too long to be seated. The food was very tasty with large portions, the only down side being that the dishes went cold before you could finish them.... More

We went to Cockadoo for our belated work new year party, it was an 80's themed party night. The ambience, food and service were superb. The band was really good and had everyone up dancing most of the night. We will definitely be going back.

I love this place! The restaurant is in an ex pub building with high ceiling and unique interior. The menu has a wide range of selection of Oriental fusion dishes. The food is not too expensive, comparing to the fact that the quality is high standard, the price is very reasonable. The only downside is that the Thai food is... More

This place is local to me but I've only visited it recently. I liked it so much I've been 3 times in 2 months.

Walking into the cockadoo you are met with a beautiful bar and dining room , more reminiscent of an English banqueting hall than an oriental reataraunt. High vaulted ceiling with exposed beams and opulent chandeliers... So we were expecting something amazing. The food was nice ..but it came out on cold plates .. no warmers ... and we like to...

We used to love this place - the food was delicately flavoured and beautifully presented on the plate. We came several times and would have recommended it as one of those secret gems. Visited again this weekend and had a totally different experience. The food was very average: it seemed to have been slopped on the plate in a heap,... More

We were looking for somewhere for lunch over the festive period and everywhere was full up. None of us wanted a roast dinner and all fancied something more exotic and spicy to jazz up the dreary weather in Oxford. I remembered Cockadoo and after a quick look at their website I found they had a £10 two course lunch special.... More
