Vegan dishes from the Coconut Tree


In recent years, Sri Lankan food has been having a moment, with The Times identifying it as a key food trend, and BBC Food attributing its popularity to 'most of the food world looking towards exciting new cuisines.'

The Coconut Tree’s take on the cuisine is made up of smaller tapas-style dishes embracing plants, fish and meat - it’s a menu that naturally offers something for everyone.

Enjoy the warmth of Sri Lankan hospitality & cuisine, served fresh from the kitchen ‘as it comes’. The dishes are rich in Ceylon spices with recipes going back generations from the founders' very own parents' kitchens. Whilst curry dishes are featured, The Coconut Tree’s curries never use masala, typical lemongrass or other more common Asian flavours, instead promising plates of flavourful food infused with authentic Sri Lankan spices.

Try a traditional hopper, some kotthu and the spicy devilled dishes, and mix & match them with their menu of sharing dishes. Spoil yourself with their sweet and fiery botanical 'cocotails', beers & fine wines. It’s a great place to bring a crowd or simply grab a table for two. They’re well known for groups and celebrations with some cracking playlists. Do remember to book to avoid disappointment.
