Just Perfect
Took my partner here for a surprise birthday treat. Neither of us been before but will definitely be going again. The food was amazing, very tasty and good size portions... Being a vegetarian myself it was amazing to have so much choice. I struggled to pick what I wanted as it all sounded so good. In the end we had a sharing platter for starter which was amazing... Highly recommend this restaurant for lush Chinese fine dining with great choice. Also thought the price was rather good for what you get.

Stunning Food
Ate here twice in a week with colleagues. Lovely staff, nothing is too much trouble. The food is simply awesome, a varied menu, Chinese, Thai, Mongolian etc all beautifully cooked and presented. Add to that a really easy to find location and ample car parking - what more could you wish for?

Four of us were on a weekend break in Oxford and just happened to be looking for somewhere to have dinner. We stumbled across this awesome restaurant by accident. We were greeted warmly and shown to a table. The place inside looks absolutely beautiful. The food came quickly and I can honestly say it is one of the nicest meals I have ever had... Thank you for a wonderful evening!

Excellent Food, Lovely Venue
We decided to try Cockadoo last night for a birthday treat - it was a great idea! We were welcomed by the owner who showed us to a table for two, comfortable seats and nicely laid table with linen table cloth and napkins, quiet music playing in the background... All courses were served by attentive waitresses who were discreet and thoughtful... This was high quality food in a great environment - and we will make it a regular venue from now on... Thank you - it was a lovely evening and exceptional value for money.

I was very impressed with the restaurant, very spacious & ambience brilliant. Me and my group of friends had the set menu and it was delicious, especially the sweet and sour chicken, just the right amount of tang in it and the spring rolls were perfection, very crispy the way I like it. Nice touch that the Chinese tea was free with the meal. I will definitely consider coming here again even though I live in Reading. Only negative is that it was quite cool in temperature when we first walked into the restaurant but, once we ate, it warmed up pretty quickly!

Fabulous Food, Friendly And Fun
It is well worth a trip to the Cockadoo, the Chinese/Asian food is wonderful and service so friendly. It is perfect for a quiet meal or big celebration, lends itself equally to both. In addition look out for the themed evenings, ‘Chinese Elvis’, ‘Frank Sinatra’ or ‘Tom Jones’. Great evenings with food, music, and dancing to round off.
