We visited this place again after a year. Still the same rubbish service. Owners are good to the "regulars". Terribly overpriced average food in tiny portions. Go elsewhere in Luton. These people lack Malaysian hospitality.

I can confirm this review is not genuine at all because we had refused your custom when you walked in as we were fully booked on the Friday you both tried to called in.

We visited as we love Thai food. We booked a table for two well in advance. Little did we know there was going to be a 60th birthday party also present. Had we known we would not have booked. They took up half the restaurant and were incredibly loud. I could not hold a conversation with my partner. I have... More

Unfortunately you felt this way however I must explain to those who's reading your comment, is aware of both side of the story. You and your partner arrived at 7pm for your reservation and by 7:40pm you've both finished eating your dinner and was ready for your bill.

I've been to the Coconut Garden a few times now and have always enjoyed my time here. I've brought a few of my colleagues down here from Milton Keynes and we thoroughly enjoyed it again. We had the Set Dinner and got 2 extra dishes because there were 7 of us. We even got to choose what we want out... More

After being recommended this restaurant by a friend, I recently visited with a group of friends for my birthday. We were asked on booking to pre order our food because we were a large group (only 6 people!). We arrived at 8.30pm and were left for a while before we could even order drinks. We then waited a further hour... More

Firstly, let me explain the situation to those who's reading your review! Frankly speaking, we don't miss your custom! Your table were initially booked for 10 people and only 5 turned up!!!! As Saturday is our busiest night, it's just fair that we asked you to pre-book! 3 of you had the Set Dinner which is a four courses dinner... More

My husband and I visited on a Sunday evening at a friends recommendation. I have lived near the restaurant for 15 years and passed it many times but never thought it looked enticing. I cannot believe I have not been before. The food was absolutely delicious. Cooked fresh. The service was friendly but not too obtrusive. I will definitely be... More

The food was far from authentic by any means, I had a beef dish but the meat was so over cooked it had turned jelly like, I had a small amount and when I asked for the bill I was interrogated by the owner at why I hadn't eaten much! Not a repeat

Sorry to hear of your review, you've order Beef Rendang and not sure if you're exposed to Indonesian dishes before. Rendang is where the beef fillets are slowly stewed in clay pots for at least 6-7hours so the meat would melt in the sauce. We've explained that to you and aslo offer to change the dish for you however you... More

Fabulous food as always. Consistently high standard of food, ambiance and service. No wonder we keep coming back - even if it is a 20 minute drive away.
