Our local, and a regular haunt. The food is always good and seems authentic, the service friendly. We ate in the small garden behind the pub.

The Cocoanut is a very lovely local pub owned by a Thai family. The perfect place for an evening meal where you can experience authentic Thai cuisine. The atmosphere is relaxing and you can sit in the lounge next door to wait for a table...More

We had such a chilled night at the Cocoanut. The food was excellent and we sat by the fire for afters, which was exactly what was needed in this weather. Just lovely

The best pad Thai I’ve had. I’ve always had great food here. Food can have a real kick, but they can adjust to your taste.

Nice old boozer, with a complement of yummy Thai cuisine. Pad Thai and Red curry are da bomb. Can wait for my return visit.

Beautiful food served by lovely staff in a thoroughly enjoyable environment. We have been to this restaurant many times - we keep going back because the Thai food really is the best we have tasted - anywhere.

I have walked passe The Coconut on many a visit to Kingston. Finally ventured inside and what a surprise. The surroundings are your typical London pub but the Thai food is excellent, not to mention the service. Highly recommended.
