We were all very impressed by the menu. My vegetarian pork tasted amazing. It was the best meat alternative I have ever had. There are lots of vegetarian meat substitutes on the menu which is unlike other places. My table of 7 didn't have a single complaint about any of the food or drinks. The staff were very welcoming even... More

First time to this location with a group of friends for a tribute evening. The act was brilliant but it was matched by everything else. Staff were friendly and really keen to cater for dietary needs of group. Great value. Highly recommended.

I enjoyed my visit as it was great to see such a variety of dishes, meats and side orders on the menu. The food tasted good but the lighting was such that my wife couldn't actually see her food and it wasn't piping hot - did taste good though!

We have visited the Cockadoo with family several times now and apart from one time I had to send a dish back as it was cold, have always enjoyed the dining experience and ambience. With Christmas and New Year approaching, we decided to look around for somewhere to party and came across Cockadoo online which on THEIR website was advertising... More

I have visited this restaurant about 3 times previously, the last time about 2 years ago and it has always been fantastic. Tonight I went as a birthday celebration and my partner has never been before and heard good reviews. Apart from ourselves there was about 3 tables full, it was quiet, the waitresse did not offer us a drink... More

What an amazing evening. The food and service was fantastic. The guy who did rod stewart sounded just like him. The atmosphere was great and everybody was up for having a good time and a boogie. Well done to cockadoo for hosting a great night. I would highly recommend the tribute nights to anyone.

We went to Cockadoo restaurant tonight and had a lovely time. The tables are lit with little tea lights and the ambience is very relaxing. The food was delicious and fresh packing in lots of lovely flavours.

Would definitely recommend this place for Chinese food lovers! They do a really good lunch deal for a very reasonable price and the food is super scrummy! The chicken toasts are absolutely lush and I'm a big fan of the mongolian pork! Worth the drive to get here for the food!

We were en route to Oxford and needed somewhere to have lunch. We pulled into the car park & were pleasantly surprised at what we discovered when we walked through the door. We did not realise it was an chinese restaurant though, but thoroughly enjoyed our choice of dishes. The 3 marinade chicken dish with vegetables was so tasty, my... More
