Welcome to the spicy taste of Sri Lanka at The Coconut Tree restaurant in Oxford and Cheltenham!


The dreaming spires of Oxford University in the UK now boasts a new neighbour—The Coconut Tree restaurant featuring the best of Sri Lankan street food.

This is not a posh upmarket eatery, but a place where dons and diners alike can experience all the spice and flavour of our peerless cuisine!

And it’s not only for town and gown Oxfordonians. The On In London website writer Tegan LeBon reports how the Girl Travels World blog organized a ‘supper-club’ visit for London for journalists.


Writes Tegan: “Sri Lankan born food and travel writer Demi Perera, who’s behind the blog Girl Travels World, has a passion for Sri Lankan food. She collaborated with The Coconut Tree because they have the same passion.”

The restaurant was started by four Sri Lankan lads after they moved from London to Cheltenham (of health spa fame), where they created the first Coconut Tree in a local pub.

It thrived on the mantra of: don’t expect a napkin; do expect an explosion of flavours in our dishes and sweet and fiery cocktails; anddefinitely do expect warm Sri Lankan hospitality!


Tegan writes that “once arriving at The Coconut Tree in Oxford, the Sri Lankan hospitality was extremely evident. We were welcomed with open arms and invited to try our first cocktail of the evening.

“I couldn’t go past ‘The Drunken Sri Lankan’ served in a ceramic elephant ‘Ruby’ which was created to help raise awareness of Elephant rescue in Sri Lanka.

“Not just instagrammable, this cocktail was amazing. Super refreshing and I definitely would have had a couple if there hadn’t been so many other delicious options to try out. The coconut mojito is divine.”
