    The curries we ordered weren’t spicy enough as requested and the portion was small. Not as good as I experienced it before

    The food here is outstanding - it is always so delicious, full of flavour and so reasonably priced. It can get a little noisy but that is testament to the fact that the place is always full.

    We all really enjoyed our dinner at SL Coconut Tree. The atmosphere was inviting and relaxing - The food was sensational and for a family that hasn't tried Sri Lankan before we were all very very happy with the meals we had. I am very keen to come back with friends in the near future. Thank you!

    Absolutely delicious food! The heat factor is quite significant so go Mild if you cannot tolerate very spicy. Try everything at least once with many visits there. You will not be disappointed.

    Absolutely brilliant Sri-Lankan spot, arguably the best if you want to introduce Sri-Lankan cuisine or even catchup with friends to date nights. A very good ambience in a restaurant with a very long setting. The food comes along with very large potions and thus sharing would be the best option going there. Cannot recommend this place enough!

    Have visited SL Coconut Tree 5 or 6 times now. The food is consistently high quality. The combination of Sri Lankan and Thai food really works. Each dish was superbly cooked and seasoned, the okra and cashews was outstanding. I’m a vegan and options were many.
