Great food at the lagoon

I visit the restaurant at least twice a year with a friend. The food and service are always very good. The peppered lamb is delicious, as are any of the shrimp dishes. Try it once and you're likely to try it again.

The food, ambience and service make this is one of our favourite restaurants in Ottawa. Everything is fresh and if you want more or less spice, they will do that for you. Plenty of choices of vegan,meat or fish dishes to keep everyone happy. The staff are knowledgeable and will offer suggestions, which we appreciated. The restaurant is small, so... More

There lunch buffet is probably some of the best value for your dollar in Ottawa. The food is so tastey, the price is reasonable, and you'll definitely leave there having eaten enough to keep you satisfied for days!

The Coconut Lagoon is a small locally owned restaurant that serves the best Indian food in the city. Their lunch buffet, while not huge, is excellent! Service is low key and efficient. If going for lunch during the week, it might be wise to make a reservation, or get there right at 11:30 a.m. when it opens as it fills... More

We have been to Coconut Lagoon many times over the past several years. The food quality has been consistently excellent, whether at the lunch/brunch buffet or evening dinner. Service is always friendly and knowledgable. The decor and seating is somewhat simple but comfortable. The authenticity of the fine Indian cuisine is unmistakable, very interesting and wonderful flavours.

What a treat to find real Indian Thali at home in Ottawa! We started with spicy pakoras and delicous scallops! It's been awhile since we had Kingfisher beer and it's just a good as we remember it from our visit to India. And the main dishes of fish curry -- as good as anything we ate in Kochin -- and...

4 star food and 5 star service in a convenient location. Saturday lunch buffet cost $16.95 and consisted of 2 two kinds of soup, 8-10 salad items, two kinds of rice several hot dishes including several vegetarian choices and Salmon curry. Butter chicken was very good. Their version of Naan bread could be better. The service was excellent with topping... More

We went to Coconut Lagoon for lunch, unaware that it was ONLY buffet and no à la carte - as a rule, I avoid buffets. The way a multi-tool does a bunch of things but none of them well, I always think buffets are a whole lot of not so good. The restaurant is a little tight, but still navigable... More

We had been there for a buffet, it was expensive but the food was really very good. However there was this guy on the counter taking payments I found him a little rude They don't have ample Parking there so can be difficult finding a parking However the food really alleviates all the pain.
