From the outside it doesn't look much but from the inside it is quite different. The food is not to be missed. From starters to deserts you will not be let down. An infusion of flavours which work well together. I will be back for more.

I'd driven passed this establishment many time and wanted to visit. It all started with the booking, table requested for 7:30 but advised we should book for 8pm as service would be very slow! So we booked for 8pm. Arrived on time to a very nice welcome, had a drink before being seated. Promptly invited through where we ordered the... More

We went as a special meal for visitors from abroad who adored Chinese food. Our daughter and her partner had been before so we went on their recommendation. None of us was disappointed. We went mid-week so the restaurant was quiet and relaxed with pleasant background music that did not intrude.There were nine in our party and we were taken... More

My recent trip to this restaurant was a family affair and all appeared to be very pleasant. The variety of food was very good and the dressing and display was good. However, after the initial pleasantries I started to notice the attention to detail. The tables were ebony and reasonably marked and sticky, I was prepared to overlook this on... More

We are a Hong Kong traveler, so enjoy our trip in UK. But still miss the Chinese style food, if you have came to Hong Kong before you must know what is Gourmet's paradise. We found this restaurant in internet and order Curry beef, Sin Chew fried rice noodles and crispy duck. All food are in high standard I'm highly... More

I've visited the Cockadoo twice now and both times have been absolutely blown away by the beautiful food. The presentation is absolutely stunning. Service is 5 star, I myself am a manager at a hotel and have worked in hospitality for a good few years so I am very particular about that. Couldn't fault it. I'd eat at the Cockadoo... More

Been 5 times now and food has been brilliant, really good and always a happy waitress. At the end of they day you'll pay a bit extra for the premium food, but its not as expensive as other local restraunts

Yes, as some people have said, the service is slow. That is because they make everything by hand for you, as you order it. We eat at this restaurant regularly and are never disappointed. Nothing is too much trouble for Alan and his staff. Go to this restaurant, talk to the people at dinner with you, relax, take your time... More
