Have been here a couple of times now. The food is fantastic and the service wonderful. I especially love the vegetarian duck. It's wonderful to have so much vegetarian choice, and different to what you normally get. We went to celebrate a birthday and would recommend and indeed have done to local people

A family evening out organised by the children for Mother's Day turned out to be a very enjoyable experience for all who attended. Very warm welcome, lovely interior, good food and attentive service.

We visited the Cockadoo after years of driving past and decided to go there for my sons birthday evening meal (Shangki Li in Cholsey being closed on a Monday). We were suitably impressed from the moment we walked in. The place has a great ambience, a bit like a jazz club with cool music and cooler décor. Five of us... More

Pleasantly surprised. Doesn't look much from the outside but nice decor and attentive service. Food very good and not bad value. We'll be back.

For those who think that all Chinese takeaways are basically the same they need to come and visit this place. We telephoned our order in, based on their online menu and were told that it would all be ready in 20 minutes. By the time we drove in from Berinsfield we had a 3 minutes wait and everything was ready.... More

Popped in on my way home from work because I couldn't be bothered to cook. The food was good and tasty. Attentive service. The menu is quite extensive, so choosing takes time! Reasonably priced and I will be back!

The food was ok but nothing you would not get from any decent Chinese restaurant, over priced. Nice decoration nice presentation of the food. We had quite a few dishes the best where the prawn toast and the ox tail was very good. Had a desert that was nice but for £7 would not expect it to be finished off... More

Massively overpriced, mediocre at best with some downright awful dishes. First, got there at 12:15 with a booking for that time, couldn't actually get in, told to come back in 5, the place is supposed to open at 12!! Duck and orange, was some roast duck that was overdone and therefore dry, in what can only be described as a... More
