Had the munch menu for £10 which included a started and main course. Both were delicious, I had the spring rolls to start which were fresh and crispy and the Thai red chicken curry for main, this was really creamy with just the right amount of spice. Both were excellent. My only complaint would be the time it took. We... More

This restaurant is a short distance from oxford and well worth the visit. The service, food and decor were all very good. Staff were welcoming and plesent, the food is not your run of the mill Chinese which all adds to what one would describe as an excellent restaurant.

Went as a group for Robbie Williams’s tribute night with a set meal. We were squash in and had very little room on the table for the food and drinks. The food was presented very well, but far too spicy for my liking, with little or no choice for anything else. The dessert – if you were lucky was about... More

An excellent restaurant with excellent service. Food is top quality and every dish is hand prepared in the kitchen overseen by the wife of the restauranteur. Very reasonably priced and the decor is quite beautiful. Lovely open fire in the reception/bar area with another beautiful lounge area off this. DO NOT be put off by the outside of the building...

Its a few years since we were at the Cockadoo, as previously it had been pretty good but not outstanding. This time, however, it was really impressive. We went as a party of four on a Friday night and had an excellent meal. We stuck with fairly standard dishes like jungle curry and red curry, but despite our lack of... More

We had a lovely meal here last week, we had chicken satay to start, and duck in plum sauce, and crispy beef for our main, it was delicious. I think this was probably the best Chinese I have ever had. Staff were very friendly and attentive too. Sadly we were only in Oxford for a couple of days, but I... More

Nice little place. The place wasn't busy but still had a nice atmosphere. We had the best prawn toast ever. I'm not sure that ive ever had anything so good. Really worth a trip. Not too expensive but not to flash either... just nice.

we visited this establishment for the Elvis night, and travelling there thought with this place being out of the way, the food had to be good. Well we were right, the food is fabulous bursting with flavour, you won't go hungry. It was a set menu with so much offered for a reasonable price. Staff our very friendly and helpful... More

This is not just for vegetarians and vegans, but I have to highlight Cockadoo Bar and Restaurant for us as there is just such a great variety of choices that for once you don't feel left out. The creative chefs prepare their own mock meat, fish and seafood substitutes that even carnivorous wouldn't recognise as 'not the real thing'. It's... More
