Great buffet lunch!

This place is always busy - limited parking but the foods great. Nice buffet variety. Stopped in today for lunch with a colleague - excellent sweet potato ginger soup; butter chicken, rice, everything was good. Will definitely be back.

Fantastic Indian food with excellent service. I love going to this restaurant. The have delicious meals and a variety of choices. The only drawback in the size of the dining area. Sometimes the door brings in draft if seated at the front in the winter.

IMHO, Coconut Lagoon is the best Indian restaurant in Ottawa. I have had the lunch buffet many times; the line-up is frequently out the door. Best, though, is to go for dinner and ask them to suggest dishes. So very good!

My husband loves Indian food and proposed to me after taking me to an Indian restaurant. For my birthday this year, I decided we try a different kind of Indian cuisine - from south India (Kerala, the southern tip of India). It was different and tasty. I had chicken, Tony had lamb. Neither were overly spicy, but just right.

The delicious food here gives one a hint of the diversity in INDIAN cuisine. Coconut Lagoon provides the spices and flavours of Kerala which is a foodie's dream! After dining here, one can realize just why the Spice Trade with India flourished. The food is always fresh and full of flavour!

The Southern Indian food although different than in most Indian Restaurants we are familiar with has a unique and wonderful taste. I have been here twice and both times they did not disappoint. Not a large place but it is friendly and the service was acceptable. If you love Indian food you have to try the Coconut Lagoon

I only recently discovered this restaurant thanks to a friend. I was not familiar with the cuisine of Southern India and was more than pleasantly surprised. Dinner menu is varied, dishes are beautifully presented and delicious. For appetizers, I would recommend their 3 Onion Fritters with Mint Chutney, so light, and their Ginger soya scallops. For the main course, everyone... More

We finally made it, after many, many recommendations from friends. We were not at all disappointed. It was very busy, but we were seated immediately and service was prompt, if a little on the stiff and formal side. We had the beef curry and the vegetable kurma. Both were delicious and piping hot. The parathas were amazing. Like, we could... More
