“Fantastic value, real home cooking”
Reviewed August 15, 2013

I can't count the number of times I have been here. Where else can you get beautifully cooked seabass with a side salad and spiced rice for £8? Burritos are also fantastic and a full meal in itself, and they cost £3.50. A can costs 80p I think. You don't get a glass with it and you order at the counter, but who cares? It's definitely not a romantic meal type of place, more somewhere to meet friends for lunch, but I love it. The blackened chicken and curried coat is also fabulous. It is somewhere you would expect to find in London or Manchester, packed with locals.

Definitely blows the socks off any nereby competitors, and the owner and his lovely mum are usually there in the thick of it so it is consistently good.

“Best place to get food in Preston.”
Reviewed August 5, 2013

I absolutely love Coco's. All my friends love it. My mum loves it! Real soul food at very reasonable prices. The staff are lovely and are happy to adjust the menu to suit your needs. The food is all made fresh to order and comes out really quickly. It is sometimes quite busy as it is very popular with students. My favourite things on the menu are the burritos, smokey jerk chicken burger, Jalapeno poppers and the kofta kebabs. All the main meals are around £5-6. I love it!

“Great food at great prices”
Reviewed July 15, 2013

Visited with a friend on a Monday lunchtime and the place was buzzing. Although not massive I was still surprised how many people were in on a MOnday lunctime. We both had the chicken and chorizo jambalaya and it was superb, and for only £5 for a plate full it was great value. Looking around at other tables the other things on the menu looked very tempting and nobody was leaving anything.The atmosphere was superb as well, very laid back. I will definitely be going again to sample something else from the menu.

“Soul Food perfected. Real good honest food!”
Reviewed July 7, 2013 via mobile

Great eatery in Preston. Filled a gap in the market which Preston lacking desperately. Sometimes the food in inconsistent when busy. But staff are quick to adress that. All in all Ibrahim is running a great joint. Which is most definitely worth a visit.

“Brilliant food, great prices!”
Reviewed June 20, 2013

Been to this a place quite a few times this year and never disappoints, decided to have something different every time I go just to see if its possible to have meal here i don't like! Even the chips are amazing, and you cant beat a full meal and drink for fiver. Don't let the looks of the place put you off, best food in Preston.
