Made the first of what will become many visits to this restaurant for their buffet lunch. Having lived in India for years, their menu really hit the spot. Tasty, with a good variety of veg and non-veg dishes. Definitely a treat to find this place.

We've been at this restaurant for the past 3 years and it's always been consistent in food quality and service. Our favorite dishes are the nilgri chicken and the lamb korma. They also have Excellent samosas with a coriander sauce. We have never been disappointed so far it's worth the stop.

We visited Coconut Lagoon on a Monday night for a friend's retirement. The atmosphere was nice, and the service was very quick. The server was helpful in recommending food choices and we decided to share a mushroom curry, butter chicken and beef curry with naan between 3 people. The food was so tasty although the portions weren't very big for... More

Ok - I know - you aren't into buffet - neither am I really but this is one of my exceptions. Not a huge amount of selection but what's there is soooo tasty. I love the butter chicken, chick peas and parantha followed but some mango pudding. A little gem in the East end of Ottawa.

My first visit to this restaurant and it will not be the last. The appearance from the street does not create a favourable impression but once inside and eating the excellent food delivered by great servers and helped in the selection of courses by the head server the impression changes to most favourable. I recommend a visit. Clean, hospitable and... More

I have to admit that the first time I went here, I was extremely disappointed to find out it wasn't a Thai restaurant. I didn't think the same when I left. I've been to Coconut Lagoon about 3 times and the service has always been very good and the food is excellent. A great surprise if you your a local... More

I'm usually not a fan of buffets but today we tried the lunch buffet. Wow! Two soups were available, lentil/tamarind/chili/herbs that I thought was unique, and a carrot/tomato and ginger concoction that also was delicious but the lentil was my favorite. The 10 hot entrees ranged from chicken, lamb and salmon to vegetarian . The curried salmon, I just couldn't... More
