Diner Reviews
  • "We have gone there over and over and it is the BEST Asian food EVER!!!!!"
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "My friend and I dined at Cococ Asian Bistro because of a Living Social Coupon. However, we will return without needing that incentive. Started at bar with happy hour. Very friendly bar tender, great deal on drinks and delicious, large portion appetizers for happy hour. Could make a meal from happy hour, considering varied section and size of orders. The salmon skin salad and tuna tartar were unusually good. Enjoyed our meal as well. Crab Roll and various pieces of sushi and sashimi, were all very fresh."

  • "We were seated right away. Service was excellent throughout the meal. We started with the edamame. Very good. Had the three kind of fish tartar app. It was good, not great. Soup portion was too large and because of that we couldn't eat much of our two rolls. So, don't order the soup, if you want to finish your dinner. Soup was very good. Spice roll and rock n roll roll for dinner. Both great. Best part was taking home half the sushi as I had a great dinner on Sunday evening as well. Live music added to the ambiance. Wife had two drinks, I had one. Total bill with 20% tip was about $130."

  • "Coco's has been around for a while with good reason. The food is excellent, service is good, and their is a wide selection on the menu. This is one of our "go to" spots for a mid-week parental date night. the sushi is fresh and fast, and the thai is awesome. the pad thai medium is great and the Coco's spring rolls are great. If you call ahead, ask for a booth. nice and quiet, even a little romantic!"

  • "Everything was very nice. The food was delicious the restaurant looks great. I know its a Florida thing, but the entertainment was good but unnecessary."

  • "Not sure which makes me happier... my beautiful wife, whose anniversary we celebrated, or the tremendous experience at Coco! Always attentive to allergy needs, empty water or tea containers, or food arrival timing. Our rolls always exceed expectations. One of my top five in Broward overall."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "The food at Coco has gone from very good to average over the past few years. Too bad because it used to be a "go to" when guests were in town. Like that they have some gluten free options. Good for vegetarians."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "Excellent wait staff as usual...food a notch above all other Thai restaurants in the area. Thanks again."
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "Love this place! It is a cut above the run of the mill Asian places I have been to. The chef has traveled widely and so his cuisine is informed by his experiences in Europe and the US as well as his home country, Thailand. Try the Mike's Roll, and also the coconut ice cream - FANTASTIC for dessert."
    Dined on 3/6/2014
  • "Wife and I loved the sushi the first time, came back to try the Thai and we loved that too!"
    Dined on 3/2/2014
  • "This is one of our must dos for pad thai. The place is clean, fun and consistent. We stop each time we're in town, have pad thai a roll and leave happy. There's usually entertainment and you can sing along if you like."

  • "My husband and I booked at Coco Asian Bristo for Valentine's Day, the experience was good. the food took a while, but in general the attention was good and the atmosphere was perfect for the occasion. We recommend Coco Asian Bristo to have a good time with family or friends."

  • "The the food was spectacular in every way. The food was beyond ecstasy. This place in my book is rated in the top 2 best places I have ever eaten at."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Went there for Valentine's day for the first time hoping for a romantic night but instead was greeted with a massive line and a noisy environment. The place was overpacked and overbooked. We had to wait 15 minutes past our reservation time and when we finally sat we had a table that was spaced out less than a foot on either side to the point where it was uncomfortable for us to even talk because we felt like everybody else was also a part if our conversation. The service was ok but slow and the food was good but definitely overpriced. It's a such a shame that my first experience was so terrible because the place actually looks nice and might have been pleasant if not for the noisy and ridiculous table arrangement."

  • "The sushi was great , the sea bass we ordered was alittle under cooked but we ate it Anyways other than that we had a great experience .."

  • "What has happened. The place was not at all crowded but the service was slow. This has not been the case in other visits, but lately seems to be a common complaint. We go there a couple of times a month but have to rethink that now."
    Dined on 2/12/2014
  • "Food was OUT OF THIS WORLD GOOD! Healthy and delicious! Can't wait to go back! Love the tables with the curtains to give you romance and privacy, if you so choose! Great and courteous wait staff as well - the whole package!"
    Dined on 1/28/2014
  • "Had dinner the night before our cruise. Food was excellent. My wife had sushi, 2 types recommended by our waiter and I had the Pad Thai with chicken. Both tasty and excellent. A great find for us out of towners."

  • "We took family that have lived in Fort Lauderdale there who have never been. They have been missing out! It was great! We wold all go back again!"
    Dined on 1/19/2014
  • "Always great food. Try the Lobster roll, see if you can finish it."
    Dined on 1/12/2014
  • "What a pleasant surprise to find this Asian Bistro in a strip mall! The interior is lovely and the bar is full-service, which isn't the norm for Asian restaurants. Our servers were excellent, efficient and attentive. Most of us enjoy Thai food regularly so were anxious to try Coco's. And we weren't disappointed. The Pad Thai (my measure of a great Thai restaurant) was excellent. We asked for the spice tray on the side and that had a nice array of asian heat. The only thing I missed on the menu was a simple chicken version of Tom Yum soup. It was a very cool night in South Florida, but they do offer covered patio seating. We will definitely be back."
    Dined on 1/8/2014
  • "One of the best Tai I tried for a while, reasonably price"
    Dined on 1/6/2014
  • "It's so difficult to find an Asian restaurant that uses good quality ingredients and avoids MSG. Coco's is the place to go when we want Thai food - they are consistent and offer healthy ingredients. I highly recommend to anyone!"
    Dined on 1/5/2014
  • "Ask for a booth so you may enjoy the music and ambience otherwise you are sitting in an open restaurant. Also, Request sea bass fish to be baked with sauce on the side. It will take longer yet will be much healthier. Live singer was great. She sang torch songs and covered frank sinatra, Ella,dean very well."
    Dined on 1/3/2014
  • "I always come to cocos with my family when we visit - it is a must, and probably our favorite sushi this side of the Mississippi. The appetizers are fantastic as well - the calamari is perfect, lightly branded with a sweet but savory chili sauce."
    Dined on 12/28/2013
  • "One of our favorite neighborhood restaurants, we enjoy many of the rolls as well as the Thai selections. The crab, Spider-Man and mango rolls are all delicious. We enjoy sitting in a booth so ask for one when making reservations."
    Dined on 12/25/2013
  • "Local spot for consistent good Asian dishes. Mike has done wonderful job creating a small, strip center restaurant into a hot, you got to go place for the neighborhood. Menu is unique, the dishes are wonderfully prepared and the small bar scene is fun and lively. Not inexpensive, but worth it."
    Dined on 12/25/2013
  • "other then one of our entrees never being served till after we ate all else the experience was great and we will be back."
    Dined on 12/25/2013
  • "Food was so-so, Service was less so. One meal came luke-warm, water glasses left unfilled, food was bland, service was sporadic."
    Dined on 12/24/2013
  • "Coco has delicious food and presentation. Tried tuna Tatar for appetizer. Yum! Their $35 dinner 4course special is well worth the money. Servings big enough to share! Amazing...."
    Dined on 11/24/2013
  • "This restaurant is consistently good! Food are wonderful, service is attentive and there is even live music that is not too loud. The lobster roll was a special that night and it was the best roll I have had in a long time!!"
    Dined on 11/22/2013
  • "We eat here each time we visit Ft. Lauderdale. Food is delicious, generous (always enough to take home) and the service is great - our waiter Tony was a delight. We had pad thai, ((one pork,one chicken) and cannot recal what our fired had - except she liked it! We'll be back next time we are in town."

  • "It really was a shame to have such great sushi when you ask for a side of ponzu and cant get it. We even asked for a manager who never came. Finally we just got up and left, never to go back there again"
    Dined on 10/26/2013
  • "It was not our first time here. we had gone several times before and loved it. This time was incredibly GREAT. the food as always was to die for...from salads, sushi rolls to curry...and the Thai doughnuts OMG!!!! But the even more exceptional thin was our waitress, Megan... We never met anybody with her energy and love for what she does..... She makes the food sound sooooooo delicious, she is so attentive. Definitely a GREAT place to enjoy Sushi and Thai!!!!!!!"
