About

This restaurant is permanently closed. Since chef/owner Mike Ponluang opened Coco Asian Bistro & Bar, in April of 2006, he has endeared himself to legions of loyal diners. Locals and visitors are enticed by Chef Mike"s mouthwatering Thai dishes, as well as his superb array of fresh sushi, sashimi, and specialty rolls. Chef Mike is truly dedicated to creating delectable dishes, comprised of fresh, high-quality ingredients, while incorporating Thai herbs to ensure authentic flavor. He is also proud to create his unique Thai dishes, from his own recipes, using French culinary techniques. Stellar dishes include Lobster Pad Thai, Crispy Duck, Grilled Filet Mignon, Baked Chilean Sea Bass, Organic Chicken with Peanut Sauce, and Emerald Scallops. Standout rolls include the Mama Roll, the Three Buddies Roll, and Mike's Roll. Diners can choose from the lively bar, the innovative sushi bar, or the casually elegant dining room -- filled with comfy booths with sheer curtains -- or the covered patio, for lunch or dinner daily.

Wonderful decoration, the sushi pizza was delicious, we ordered two more rolls which were okay but not memorable.
Bathrooms were nice and clean.

The COCO Asian Bistro is one of our favorite restaurants. The food, service, and ambiance is unbelievable. My husband had the Pad Thai and I ordered the Ginger Stir Fry with chicken. Everything was prepared to order and so fresh and tasty. The staff made us feel so welcome and they were all so personable and polite. Although the food was a few dollars more than similar restaurants, it was certainly worth the price. The Groupon certificate I had did bring down the cost, so I was happy for that. Both my husband and I highly recommend this restaurant. You will love it!

This is the second time I have eaten here. The food, again, was fresh and delicious. Without the Groupon I had bought, it would have been somewhat overpriced, but even so, I would not have minded paying a little more for quality food.

Great restaurant. Great sushi and the Thai food is also amazing. I always say that quality ingredients is the foundation. They have been consistent for pretty much as long as I have been going there. It’s worth fighting the traffic a bit to get there since I no longer live in the area. If you time it right, that can be avoided a little. It’s also bit tucked away.

The food was great— been meaning to want to give it a try. Granted I had a coupon, the service, although nice , was a bit slow. There seemed to be a disconnect.

This became our favorite Spot for Asian food. Their lobster pad Thai is to die for ! Service has been a hit or miss but in general has been decent. On Sunday they have some live music going on. In general a nice place for a date with great food and good ambiance.

It is very tight spaces. When we walked in there was a glass vase poorly placed right in the middle of the hall. I almost knocked it over with my bag. We purchased the Groupon deal worth $60 and nowhere did it say that I had to have 4 people with me. I had a party of two. It said valued UP to 4 people. The menu was overpriced so I figured I would need it. The server was extremely unprofessional and did not understand basic server etiquette. I had a picky eater with me, so I had to order a basic noodle and shrimp dish. I said "BASIC". So what does she do? She makes it all kinds of spices, veggies, onions, eggs and everything else you could ask for in there. I sent it back, and they brought it back 5 secs later with some of the veggies picked out. We didn't eat it and took it home. Then came my food 30 mins later. I ordered sushi, but the server kept disappearing. I waited another 30 mins just for chop sticks. Then came the bill. They refused to honor my Groupon and said that I should have brought 4 people with me. On top of this, they charged me $20 for those noodles we didn't even eat. I asked for them to correct the issues with the check and it turned into another ordeal. I had to go through 2 other managers before they finally corrected it. It was already 10 pm by now. We were tired and ready to fall asleep. We left and the waiter came running out after me accusing me of not redeeming my Groupon. I showed her that I did and she let us go. What a relief to be able to leave from there. Don't go for a nice sit down meal here. If anything, order take-out. The service is terrible. You will be annoyed.

Valentines Day found my husband and me on the road for work. Rolled into Ft Lauderdale late and used Open Table to help us find a place to eat. This was a fun surprise. Don’t let the mall location put you off. The food was delicious. A bit pricey but worthy.

Large selection, however, vegan choices were extremely limited. The food was tasty and meet expectations. We sat outside which was refreshing although the tables were jammed together leaving us on top of our neighbors.
