We were greeted by a very apologetic waitress who explained that their boiler had broken down so it was very cold. They put our party of six into a smaller room with an electric heater and although it was decidedly chilly to start with the quality of the food and service absolutely made up for it. Between us we had... More

Eaten lunch here a few times over last 5 or more years, as I once worked nearby and even now it's worth a slight detour when in the area. It's a strange one to review as food is always excellent and a big step above most Chinese restaurants, but service has always been so very slow to get the first... More

Amazing food!! Not sure anyone would be disappointed here Only slight issue was waiting 10/15 minutes to be acknowledged when entering. When eventually welcomed the waitress was friendly and very polite Will be coming back!! Try the spring rolls and prawn toast you won't regret it

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. The menu combines Chinese and Thai cuisine - we had soft... More

I was very impressed with the restaurant, very spacious & ambiance 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... More

I came here 3 weeks ago for a birthday meal with a large group of friends. The restaurant was pretty quiet but they seemed to have a staff shortage as we were kept waiting at the bar for a drink for 10 minutes without anyone bothering to serve us. As we were a large group we were asked to pre... More

The place is outside Oxford, in the village of Nuneham Courtenay. Ample car park, big restaurant/bar area/dining area. I visited when it was decorated for Christmas and there were corporate diners with (noisy) live show included. We were sat in a smaller area with 'normal' dining area (4 tables). Service was good, Starters came quickly, however we had to wait... More

What more can I say, the manager of the restaurant and the staff are always happy and welcoming when we go in. The food is on a whole different level! If you have ever been to the crazy bear just down the road in Stadhampton, it's good but very over priced. In the Cockadoo, the food is even better and... More
