Cuisine: Sri Lankan, Street Food
Ranked: #5 of 20 restaurants in Cardiff

Coconuts have started falling on innocent passers-by in Cardiff, all thanks to The Coconut Tree. Specialising in Sri Lankan street food, it's an experience like no other. Bring your helmet!

Look out for the bright red tuk-tuk parked outside and you're on the money! Like their street-food, their dining area is warm, informal and fun, with an array of benches and bar stools to choose from. Unlike a busy street-stall, it's wonderfully spacious, making it perfect for groups and families to let their hair down.

Guaranteed you will leave this restaurant having tried something new! For something warm and comforting, go for the chicken curry or Jaffna goat curry with potato. Go off-road with the black pork that is slow-cooked in a roasted black spice mix (how mysterious!) for mindblowing flavour or a hot battered spicy cuttlefish. Vegetarians are well looked after with the coconut sambal, pumpkin curry, jack fruit cutlets and fried okra, all of which go nicely with some Sri Lankan fried rice or traditional roti.

Famed for their cocotails (no that's not a typo!), expect your delicious concoction in a fun-loving elephant cup or if you're lucky, it might be on fire! Keep your helmets on for this one.

Reviews

First time here and very impressed with the variety, freshness and quality of the meal. The restaurant is set back from the road, so couldn't see it at first. But when you enter you are transported from a cold wet winter night to a space with a cosy tropical atmosphere. The cocktails are good too! And good for vegans. It is a casual place, so benches rather than chairs, but that's all part of the street food experience.

Woohoo! Loved the Coconut Tree. The food was excellent! I have recently turned full vegan and there were SO MANY different vegan dishes that they offer. I find that most other restaurants that offer vegan dishes are just regular dishes minus the meat so you miss out on the protein. However, the Coconut tree has plenty of vegan protein sources in their dishes, this was a big win for me. The service was great too and the prices are very reasonable. highly highly recommended!

We had a great time at the coconut tree. As the type of food served isn’t very common the staff were extremely helpful with recommending what to try and how much to order. It’s a really relaxed atmosphere and the food had lots of flavour! Would definitely recommend if your looking for somewhere new!
