Coconut Tree

Sri Lankan in Cowley Road & Southeast Oxford

Just supposing ‘Sri Lankan tapas’ was actually a thing, this wildly popular bar-restaurant would be the best place to get it. What it really serves is small helpings of street food, including hoppers – bowl-shaped coconut-milk pancakes filled with rich sauces – lots of vegetarian options, including soya meatballs, and meat dishes such as slow cooked goat curry, plus two-for-£10 ‘cocotails’.
