Very good service, great tasting food but the sushi ferris wheel platter is definitely overpriced for the amount you get for two people. Expected much more but at least They could say how many pieces you get.

We arrived early but they kindly managed to give us a table immediately. Food and drinks were very good except the beef tataki which was somewhat tough & tasteless. We tried to order sake but they didn’t have any!! Cocktails & sushi were great

Cocochan
Responded on 17 December 2019

Thank you for your review. We are sorry to hear the beef tataki was not to your liking. We've got plenty of other dishes on our menu that we would love for you to come back and try. Unfortunately, we did not have Sake on the day of your visit but we do serve three varieties of them. We look forward to having you amongst us again.

Our first time at Cocochan and based on this experience we will definitely be going again. Really enjoyed the food. Service appeared a little stretched so the restaurant could have been a server down on numbers but otherwise absolutely no complaints. A little pricey but remember the location.

Shocking service, awful experience will not visit again. Staff not attentive at all and oblivious to customers. Food was very nice just a shame about service. Booked for a special occasion and no comp dessert wss offered. Even after I had mentioned it was my bf birthday, the waitress told me I had to order a dessert for them to personal. In my experience for a birthday I have never experienced such lack of care!

Terrible service which was a shame as the food was really excellent. We were a table of five that had about 7 different waitresses/waiters all evening- total service chaos. They took too long serving drinks, couldn’t agree/advise on which dishes contained or didn’t contain wheat (one celiac in our party) and started clearing glasses thinking we’d finished our wine when there was still half a bottle left. I had to go and find it for them!
Wouldn’t return unless there’s more focus on front of house training. Really let’s place down.

Could be better organised with the service especially for large groups. Meals should be coordinated and delivered together.
Also better communication on the menu, we were served a thai green curry with no rice and no information that this was excluded, would have been helpful if we were informed of this before being served.

It was absolute chaos! We had a reservation for 3 for 7pm, the restaurant was really busy and they just couldn’t cope.
Food was bought up from the kitchen, given to the wrong tables, taken away, bought back - no one seemed to know what was going on.
The food itself was pretty good, I’d been craving prawn tempura and it didn’t disappoint but the food didn’t arrive in the same time zone so we couldn’t enjoy eating together.
