We went to Cockadoo restaurant tonight and had a lovely time. The tables are lit with little tea lights and the ambience is very relaxing. The food was delicious and fresh packing in lots of lovely flavours.

Would definitely recommend this place for Chinese food lovers! They do a really good lunch deal for a very reasonable price and the food is super scrummy! The chicken toasts are absolutely lush and I'm a big fan of the mongolian pork! Worth the drive to get here for the food!

Amazing wedding anniversary celebrated at Oxfordshire as a Chinese foods lover😀 The foods is well decorated as modern chinese cuisine where the owner is from Hong Kong. Do visiting before 7 pm as there tends to have flourish of guests after 7pm which has caused a wait.

I've been to this place too many times to remember - and have only just remembered to write a review. We love it here! The food is delicious and the staff are very friendly & efficient. I live an hour away, but it's most certainly worth the journey every few months. They also have live acts from time to time... More

this was a early lunch on a Monday - the restaurant was empty apart from us which was a shame because this is a lovely place. It doesn't look very appealing from the outside but inside is really beautifully laid out. The staff were extremely courteous. The food was very tasty, piping hot and well presented. We had the set... More
