Could be better organised with the service especially for large groups. Meals should be coordinated and delivered together.
Also better communication on the menu, we were served a thai green curry with no rice and no information that this was excluded, would have been helpful if we were informed of this before being served.

It was absolute chaos! We had a reservation for 3 for 7pm, the restaurant was really busy and they just couldn’t cope.
Food was bought up from the kitchen, given to the wrong tables, taken away, bought back - no one seemed to know what was going on.
The food itself was pretty good, I’d been craving prawn tempura and it didn’t disappoint but the food didn’t arrive in the same time zone so we couldn’t enjoy eating together.

Food was great however the service was extremely slow. My friends & I had to wait for 25 minutes for our drinks and asked for them twice.
When we asked for desert menu it took 15 minutes to bring it over, I mean how long does it really take to pick up a menu and bring it over? By the time we received the desert menu after asking again for a 2nd time we were tired and ready to go.
Shame about the service as the food was pretty good.

Love this place. The staff are warm and friendly. Sash who attended to us was brilliant. He is so knowledgable and everything he recommended was deliciously Devine. It is a little pricey but you can't fault the food and experience .

I usually love Cocochan. I was quite pleased I ended up not going and it was just my husband and his friend, both fasting and the food came late. No apology, the food also wasn’t up to it’s usual standard and apparently it was super noisy in there. Very sad considering how much we love this place usually.

HUGELY disappointing after a day of no food!

We wanted Asian and read good reviews. However, this was highly disappointing. The food was subpar at best and our service was absolutely terrible. The chili chicken dish was undercooked. When we told our waiter about an allergy, he acted as if he didn’t work there and couldn’t accurately suggest dishes to accompany said allergy. I mean even getting water was difficult. It is a shame we spent one of our only evenings in London in this place and I suggest the service has a come to Jesus moment if they want to stay in business.

Had lunch a few days earlier and was very impressed so
decided to come over for Dinner !
Very disappointed! The lobster noodle was over cooked greasy and just not on !
The piece size of Black cod was much smaller compared to what we had for lunch earlier and over cooked!
The jungle curry was bland and fish in the same was dry , cut wrong and over cooked !
Regret this will not do and this cooking quality on a Monday night when restaurant was empty is not acceptable.

Good food !
Black cod was excellent !
The starters , dim sum and small eats were great .
Green curry could be improved, was a little too thick and. bland
The rib eye was just ok ! Cut wrongly in thin strips , even medium was dry .
Getting attention for service was a issue

Family lunch... Great menu and especially good sushi duck and beef black bean sauce and dim sum . Really good pan American spread so something for everyone.
Only slightly negative point was the tiny individual teapots for jasmine tea. If you like to drink volume tea on these occasions which we do then a big communal pot on the table is the way to go. Otherwise this was spot on and we will be back.

I can’t fairly rate any of the items above except that the overall experience is poor. We made a reservation for a late evening dinner on our last night in London, and it wasn’t even the last time slot available for the evening. We showed up timely for our reservation, only to be greeted with utter disappointment and attitude by one of the attendants. He made it obvious that he’s frustrated to see us and stomped away. The other attendant kindly told us that they’ve decided to close early because it was a slow night (a fact no one from the restaurant bothered to contact us until we showed up for our confirmed reservation).
The disgruntled attendant finally came back after speaking to someone (the chef, maybe), and spoke to the other attendant. He in turn informed us that we can stay but we’ll need to order quickly and all at once because their kitchen is closing.
At this point, we’ve decided this restaurant is not worth our time and money. And we’ll be sure never to patronize it and will spread our negative experience widely.
