One to look out for? Sri Lankan concept The Coconut Tree to open restaurants three and four before 2019

The Coconut Tree, which focuses on affordable Sri Lankan street food, is opening a third site in Bristol. The concept is one to watch having established itself already in Cheltenham and Oxford.

The new 80-cover restaurant will start serving today (Friday October 5) on Gloucester Road, The Caterer noted in a listing. Expect dishes such as spicy battered cuttlefish, cheesy Colombo, Jaffna goat curry with potato, and egg hoppers with sambal.

Fourth site in November

Ceylon Arrack – a Sri Lankan spirit made from fermented coconut sap – is the focal point to a fairly expansive cocktail menu full of fiery spices and tropical fruits.

The Coconut Tree has won numerous West Country accolades over the past year, while in 2017, the brand got a ‘cheap eats’ runner up spot in the Observer Food Monthly awards.

There’s a fourth restaurant opening, also in Bristol, slated for November.
