Award-winning Sri Lankan bar & restaurant group The Coconut Tree has announced it will be offering 50% off all food (Monday - Wednesday, eat in only) until the end of January 2023.

The street food pioneers first offered an early-week discount (Mon - Wed) in 2020. After experiencing a marked increase in the numbers of new customers trying Sri Lankan food for the first time, they have branded the offer as an opportunity to ‘Intro Your Crew’ to the Coconut Tree’s take on the island cuisine.

Operations Director Rashinthe Rodrigo said, “In the UK, Sri Lankan food is not as widely available or understood as say, Indian or Chinese cuisine, and we want to change that; we want to be the ones to make it mainstream and shape Sri Lankan eats in the UK.

Our ‘Intro Your Crew’ offer gives people the confidence to try our authentic street food and we’ve met so many new customers as a result . We know that the offer tempts people to try something new, and we've noted nine times out of ten, they go on to become our loyal fans.”

The Coconut Tree’s take on Sri Lankan street food is made up of small & large tapas-style dishes embracing plants, fish and meat - it’s an abundant menu that naturally offers something for everyone; the menu includes 16 vegan dishes as well as plentiful fish, dairy and meat options.

Popular dishes include ‘Hot Battered Spicy Cuttlefish’; green peas and ‘Cashew Nuts’ soaked and cooked in coconut cream; and ‘Cheesy Colombo’ – cheese cubes fried and mixed Colombo style. ‘Black Pork’ is also a firm favourite, which consists of diced pork belly cooked in 30 roasted spices. Finally, ‘Kotthu’ is a fine example of a street food served all over the country - made with finely chopped roti and cooked with egg, vegetables and / or meat. 

Not so long ago, eminent food critic Jay Rayner visited the Cheltenham restaurant, citing a “raucous, rough-edged enthusiasm to the food” which manages “that rare trick of being totally laid-back and completely on point at the same time.”

The Coconut Tree now has restaurants in Cheltenham, Bristol, Oxford, Bournemouth, Cardiff, Reading and Bath, and recently announced plans to open in Birmingham (est, Spring 2022).
