This restaurant has become a firm favourite over a number of years. The food is always excellent and the staff are really friendly. My most recent visit with my good friend, who is vegan, was one of the best meals I have ever had there. The vegetarian (ask them to make it vegan) set meal for two and shredded "veggie duck" was absolutely amazing! I'm neither a vegetarian or vegan, I'm just someone who appreciates good food. I can honestly say I would happily choose this over a my usual "meat lovers version" . Definitely recommend you give it a try!

If you've never been here you really must try it. The food is just gorgeous and always beautifully presented. We've always had great service and been made to feel very welcome. I'd describe the food as oriental fine dining as there are dishes available that I've never seen elsewhere. The red snapper my friend had was so beautifully presented it felt a shame to tuck in! The restaurant itself is plush and would be great for a special occasion. I've also heard they have a monthly celebrity tribute act which are really great fun according to a friend. All in all, if you haven't been to the Cockadoo then you're missing out on an absolute gem of a restaurant.

Been here a few times and never left disappointed. Some of the best Vegan options on their menu, omg so healthy and tasty at the same time! From service, staff to food.. everything has always been top notch and excellent. The owner and manager of Cockadoo, Allan is super friendly and extremely hard-working. Highly recommended place to eat for locals as well as people from outside Oxfordshire traveling/passing by. Thank you once again for awesome food! :) Nimisha & Akshay.

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.
