Discover the vibrance of authentic Sri Lankan cuisine at this casual eatery in Birmingham. Offering affordable dishes in a fun and welcoming setting, this please-all restaurant brings relaxed island vibes to the city’s bustling centre. Its menus are available to eat in or takeaway, while a kid-friendly offering and a killer cocktail list makes the Coconut Tree a place where everyone’s welcome.

The menu is focused around a huge selection of sharing plates, from classic Sri Lankan dishes to plenty of vegan and vegetarian options. Food is prepared fresh every day, and and dishes arrive at the table as and when they’re ready. Of course, a visit to Coconut Tree wouldn’t be complete without one of its Hoppers, a bowl-shaped coconut milk pancakes served with coconut sambol, caramelised onions and salsa. Elsewhere on the menu, sharing dishes include a pineapple curry, polenta-battered mushrooms, devilled chicken wings and slow-cooked pork belly roasted in homemade spices. Don’t miss one of its kotthu dishes, a fine example of Sri Lankan street food that features chopped rotti, veggies, meat and an egg. There are also set and express menus available if you can’t decide.

Aptly-named Cocotails are a big thing at Coconut Tree and created using the defining flavours of Sri Lanka. Its twist on a Negroni, for example, is spruced up with Sri Lankan botanical gin, Suze gentian root liqueur and Belsazar White Vermouth. And you can expect plenty more twists-on-a-classic where that came from! Keep your eyes peels for its sharing cocktails (for four) if there’s a large group of you, while mocotails (non-alcoholic) complete the offering.

The Coconut Tree is a successful chain restaurant with outlets across the UK including Reading, Oxford, Cheltenham, Cardiff, Bristol, Bournemouth and Bath.
