Excellent meal

We came one night when our regular Indian place was closed. We loved the chickpea curry and our beef vindaloo was exactly as ordered - extra spicy. We'll definitely be back to try more of the menu!

Our teenagers wanted to try Indian food. Having read the reviews on TripAdvisor (of course!), we decided to give this place a try. We were not disappointed! Even though the place was packed (on a Wednesday!), the waiters (host, main waiter and server) were all very helpful in describing and suggesting different menu items. In the end, we settled on...

Easy to find, parking on street or beside restaurant. Locally and privately owned, Friendly staff , simple but comfortable and tasteful decor. Seems very popular so I would recommend reservations. Delicious food..our table ordered some Coconut chicken (mild), butter chicken (mild), curried fish (had kick!), saag paneer (mild-veg), curried lamb and rice. Everything was scrumptious! Oh, and the parathas/naan were... More

Its been a couple of years since I ate here as I no longer live in Ottawa (5 hrs away) so I gave it a try for lunch today and was not disappointed. As usual, the service was fast and friendly and the hot and cold buffet was very satisfying. The butter chicken may have been just a wee bit... More

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

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
